Lumberton’s Greg Foster moves into all-time Princeton hurdles top-10 in collegiate debut!!!!!!!!

In his first college race, Greg Foster ran the 9th-fastest 60-meter hurdles time in Princeton history.

Foster, a Lumberton native who graduated from Lawrenceville Prep, opened his collegiate career by winning the hurdles in 8.06 at the The College of New Jersey Indoor Opener Saturday at the Armory.

Foster was a five-time national scholastic champion in the horizontal jumps at Lawrenceville, but he didn’t jump Saturday, opting to focus only on the hurdles, his 3rd event in high school.

But he ran 8.20 in the prelims in his first race ever over the 42-inch hurdles and led all qualifiers into the final, where he edged sophomore teammate Philip Kastner as part of a 1-2-3-4-5 Princeton sweep. Kastner was 2nd in a PR 8.10.

Here’s a look at the all-time Princeton top-10:

7.76 … Christian Brown [2022]
7.77 … Joey Daniels [2020]
7.91 … Rob Mohr [2013]
7.95 … Greg Caldwell [2016]
7.96 … Ray Lenihan [2006]
7.98 … Adrian Mullings [2003]
8.02 … Jovan Aigbekaen [2022]
8.05 … Chris Vasich [2009]
8.06 … Greg Foster [2023]
8.08 … Taraje Whitfield [2022]

The only other South Jersey athletes I see on the Princeton men’s indoor all-time top 10 are Bridgeton’s Royce Reed No. 7 in 300 at 34.74 in 1995], West Deptford’s Cameron Atkinson [8th in 200 at 21.63 in 2002 and 6.38 in 55 in 2001]
