Washington Township boys race to No. 1 shuttle hurdles time in N.J. at state relays!!!!!!

Washington Township ran the fastest shuttle hurdles time in the state Saturday, outracing South Brunswick to win the shuttles at the Group 4 State Relays at the Bubble.

Kanye Mills, Yashahya Brown, Nico DiGiacomo and Zachary Kotel ran 30.98, edging South Brunswick’s 31.29.

It’s Washington Township’s second-fastest time ever, behind a 30.52 to win the 2012 state relays at the Bubble. Larry Floyd, Tyler Stumm, Jordan Ashley and Arthur Ashton ran on that team 11 years ago yesterday.

The fastest previous time in the state was Rahway’s 31.10 last week at the Union County Relays at the Jersey City Armory. The fastest South Jersey time was Washington Township’s own 31.47 at the Bubble last week.

The time is No. 4 in Gloucester County history, behind Deptford’s South Jersey-record 29.45 at the Group 2 State Relays in 2019, Washington Township’s 30.52 and Deptford’s 30.94 at Armory Nationals in 2018.

It’s also fastest in the country so far this year, although now that the shuttle hurdles is no longer run at indoor nationals, it’s rarely contested in other states indoors.

Here’s a look at the all-time South Jersey fat list followed by the fastest hand times on record. I didn’t merge the lists because unless you have more faith than me in the stopwatch crews at the finish line in the 1970s and 1980s, the standard 0.24 really doesn’t reflect the difference between the hand times and the fat times.
