Egg Harbor Township graduate Anthony Vazquez opened his junior year at Syracuse with a monster PR and a spot in the all-time Syracuse top-10.
Vazquez won the 60-meter high hurdles at the Greg Page 2022 Invitational at Ithaca’s historic Barton Hall in 7.95. His previous PR was an 8.01 at the Virginia Tech Invitational in Blacksburg this past January.
Vazquez ran 8.03 to lead all qualifiers in the trials before recording his first sub-8.00 performance.
His time is No. 1 on the 2022-23 Puerto Rico performance list and No. 6 on the all-time Puerto Rico list.
It’s also No. 17 in the NCAA Division 1 so far this year and No. 2 in the ACC, behind Clemson senior Giano Roberts, who has run 7.80. Roberts placed 4th at the NCAA Championships at Hayward Field in Eugene this past June in 13.45.
At Egg Harbor, Vazquez was the 2020 indoor Easterns champ in the 55-meter hurdles over the 39-inch barriers in 7.45 and the Meet of Champions winner in 7.31.
