Olivia Baker led preliminaries in the 400 meter dash with a season best time of 52.96. When she would return for the finals on Sunday she ran a 52.46!! Which breaks the New Jersey state record in the event!! The previous record was held by Mikele Barber of Montclair from back in 1998 when she ran 52.56 at Nationals! Congratulations to Olivia I wish I was there to see that in person.
