Jalen Jones, Stone Caraccio help Monmouth shatter school DMR record in Penn Relays triumph!!!!!!

With two South Jersey legs, Monmouth shattered the school record in the distance medley at the 126t Penn Relays at Franklin Field.

Burlington Township graduate Jalen Jones, a senior, ran the 400 and Kingsway graduate Stone Caraccio, a sophomore, handled the 800 as Monmouth won the college DMR in 9:46.43.

That broke the school record of 9:48.26 set on the same track at the 2013 Penn Relays by Andrew Langille, John Malespina, Alex Leight and Abegami’s Ford Palmer.

Ocean Township’s James Hoffman led off with a 2:58.71 leg for the 1,200 and Jones ran a personal-best 46.90 split to move the Hawks past Ohio State and South Carolina and into the lead. Jones’ 400 leg was fastest in the race.

Caraccio then split 1:51.38, dropping Monmouth a fraction of a second behind Ohio State. But Raritan’s Louis DiLaurenzio anchored in 4:09.46 to bring Monmouth home in first.

Rutgers placed 3rd in 9:48.74, with Rancocas Valley’s Micah Wood splitting 1:52.58 on the 800 leg.
