Jasmine Broadway from Burlington Township won her first conference title Sunday and shattered both the Rowan’s school record and the meet record for 200 meters at the New Jersey Athletic Conference Championships at Ramapo College in Mahwah.
Broadway, a Rowan sophomore, ran 24.33 in the 200 trials on Saturday, breaking the school record and meet record set by Pemberton graduate Shailah Williams, who ran 24.36 at the 2015 NJAC meet on the same track in Mahwah.
Broadway came back later Sunday and won the final in 24.46, also under her previous PR. Chidimma Igwe of Rutgers-Newark placed 2nd in 24.60.
That 24.33 will wind up somewhere in the top 10 in NCAA Division 3 once all of the weekend results are updated on the TFRRS database.
Broadway’s previous PR was a 24.76 in her last 200 race in Columbia, S.C., last month. She didn’t break 25 seconds until six weeks ago when she ran 24.85 in a meet in Chester, Pa.
In high school, Broadway’s 200 PR was 25.60 from her win at Central Jersey Group 3 sectionals in June 2021 at Jackson Liberty.
Broadway was 14th at last year’s NJAC Championships in Ewing with a 26.23. So she ran nearly two seconds faster this year. She was 5th in the 200 at the indoor NJAC Meet in February at Ocean Breeze in 25.61.
