Bryce Tucker takes 4th in 400 with all-time SJ #2 time, Pennsauken earns All-America honors in 4×2 and 4×4 at Ocean Breeze Nationals!!!!!!!

Bryce Tucker placed 4th in the open 400-meter dash and anchored Pennsauken’s 1,600-meter relay team to 2nd place on Day 2 of Ocean Breeze Nationals.

Earlier Saturday, Pennsauken placed 3rd in the 800-meter relay, so that’s three All-America performances in one day for the Indians. What a weekend for Pennsauken!

Joining Tucker on the 4-by-4 were Kahlil Ali, Premier Wynn and Joel Oquendo.

Pennsauken’s 4-by-2 was Tucker to Ali to Nadir Paige to Wynn.

So Tucker is a triple All-America, Wynn and Ali are double All-Americas and Oquendo and Paige have one apiece.

Paige is a senior and the others are all juniors.

Tucker began his day Saturday with a PR 48.23 for 4th place in the 400. That’s the No. 2 time in South Jersey history and only 33-100ths of a second off the South Jersey record of 47.90 set Moorestown’s Brandon Outlaw at 2017 Armory Nationals.

Tucker broke the Camden County record of 48.27 set by Camden’s Jade Smith at the 2002 Midwest Indoor Invitational at the University of Nebraska’s Devaney Sports Complex in Lincoln, Neb.

Before this weekend, Tucker’s indoor 400 PR was 49.59, although he did run 48.33 outdoors in a summer meet at Franklin Field this past July. He lowered that to 48,34 Friday in the prelims and then to 48.23 Saturday in the final.

In the 1,600-meter relay, Kahlil Ali opened up, followed by Premier Wynn, Joel Oquendo and Tucker. Pennsauken ran 3:21.58, finishing behind only Cathedral High of Los Angeles, which won the race in 3:18.28.

Pennsauken’s time is fastest by a South Jersey school since Egg Harbor Township ran 3:18.45 at Armory Nationals in 2017 and No. 20 in South Jersey history.
