Woodrow Wilson’s Dennisha Page got her 2022-23 indoor season off to a hot start by nearly toppling the Rutgers school record at 300 meters.
Page won the 300 at the Rutgers Holiday Classic at the 168th Street Armory in 39.32, only 12-100ths of a second off the school record of 39.25 set by Bria Saunders of Parsippany High at the Beantown Challenge on Harvard’s track in Cambridge, Mass., in 2017.
This was Page’s first lifetime 300 in her three indoor seasons – one at Syracuse and two at Rutgers. She ran one as a senior at Wilson on the same Armory track in 41.80 back in December of 2018.
Page ran 11.39 and 23.55 last spring for Rutgers.
Page won the race by a whopping .68-100ths of a second over Amara Onyeuku of Columbia, who ran 40.00. She also ran a leadoff 59.7 leg on Rutgers’ 4-by-400 team, which placed 4th in 4:00.62.
