Speedy senior Samuel Thomas of Northern Burlington hasn’t run an open 100 or 200 yet this spring, but he brought the Greyhounds home with a big school-record in the 400-meter relay Saturday.
Thomas, junior Jordan Wilkerson and senior Bryan Carroll all ran on three winning relay teams at Saturday’s Moorestown Relays.
Thomas joined junior Wilkerson, Carroll and senior Darryl Pitt on Northern’s winning 4-by-1. The Greyhounds ran 1:30.62 and won the large-school race by more than three seconds.
Northern shattered the school record of 1:33.37 set by the 2016 team at the Willingboro Relays. Their time is No. 10 in the state so far this year and No. 2 in South Jersey behind Pennsauken’s state-leading 1:26.74 Saturday at Cherokee.
The Greyhounds also won the sprint medley in 3:45.57 with Wilkerson and Thomas on the 200s, Carroll the 400 and senior Jose Grullon anchoring, and the 400-meter relay in 44.14 with Wilkerson, Carroll, Reynolds and sophomore Andrew Reynolds.
Thomas was runner-up at 55 meters in the state Group 3 indoor meet at the Bubble and his 6.42 ranked No. 2 in New Jersey. He’s the No. 8 returner in the state in the 100 with his 10.78 PR from last year’s BCSL meet at Northern Pennsauken.
