Burlington Twp.’s Jasmine Broadway shatters Rowan 200 record, advances to final at NCAA Division 3 Championships with 2nd-fastest qualifying time!!!!!!

Burlington Township’s Jasmine Broadway recorded the 2nd-fastest qualifier to the 200-meter dash final at the NCAA Division 3 Championships in Rochester, N.Y.

Broadway ran a lifetime-best 24.18, lowering her own Rowan school record from 24.33, which she ran earlier this month when she won the NJAC title at Ramapo.

Broadway, a Rowan sophomore, won the first of three heats. Each winner and the next-five-fastest advanced to the final at 3:50 p.m. on Saturday.

The only faster qualifier was Lauren Jarrett, a freshman at Wisconsin-La Crosse, who was 1st across the line in the 2nd heat in 24.09. Jarrett was aided by a 0.9 tailwind. Broadway’s race had no tailwind.

At Burlington Township, Broadway had a PR of 25.60 from her win at the 2021 Central Jersey Group 3 sectionals at Jackson Liberty. She went on to place 2nd at states at Pennsauken in 25.67.

She ran 25.84 as a Rowan freshman but got down to 25.19 this past indoor season and earned All-America honors after a running a leg on Rowan’s 4-by-400 team, which placed 8th at indoor nationals in Birmingham, Ala.

She broke 25 seconds for the first time early last month with a 24.85 in a meet at Widener, then lowered her PR to 24.76 in Columbia, S.C., in late April, and then 24.33 in the trials of the NJAC meet, which she won in 24.46.
