Fantastic meet for Haddonfield junior Chloe Kamp at the Camden County Championships Saturday at Haddon Township.
Kamp won three events and placed 2nd in another, PR’d in two events and helped Haddonfield out-race Sterling 157-138 to win the Small-School Championship.
In the 100, Kamp ran a PR 12.43 in the trials before winning the final in 12.54. Her previous PR was a 12.63 just a week earlier at South Jersey Elite at Delsea. Kamp edged Sterling freshman Leeya Joseph, who was 2nd in a personal-best 12.69.
Kamp’s other PR came in the long jump, which she won at 16-10, four inches beyond her previous PR of 16-6 from last year’s South Jersey Group 2 sectionals, also at Delsea. Sterling senior Jenovia Logan was 2nd just a couple inches behind at 16-7 ¾.
Kamp is new to the 400, but she’s broken 60 in both major meets she’s raced. She ran her first lifetime 400 last month at the Blue Devil Classic in Westfield and ran 59.42. She ran 59.63 Saturday, edging sophomore teammate Molly Minor in a 1-2 Bulldog finish. Minor ran 59.99 for 2nd in what was also only her 2nd 400 ever. She ran 63.85 last May in a meet at Haddonfield.
Joseph ran a PR 25.52 to win the 200, with Camp 2nd in 26.10 for eight more big points. The 26.10 is a big-meet PR for Camp, although she did run a fully-automatic 25.99 in a dual meet at West Deptford last month.
In South Jersey Group 2, Kamp now ranks 2nd in the 400, 3rd in the 100 and long jump and 7th in the 200.
Haddonfield junior Ava Thomas also recorded a fast distance double [5:15.22, PR 10:55.73], sophomore Audrey Adams won the high hurdles in 16.25 and junior Mia Bompensa cleared 10-0 for 1st in the pole vault.
In addition to Joseph’s win in the 200 and 2nd in the 100 and 60.01 relay anchor, Sterling got wins from junior Avanna Brown [34-8 triple jump], junior Laurel Conway [101-10 javelin] and senior Jordan Caul [33-11 ¾ shot].
Sterling also won the 4-by-4 team with a season-best 4:07.22 with Ayanna Brown, Nylah Coleman and Jordan Frazier setting up Joseph.
