Full Meet Results - 354 Total Performances (26 NJ)

East Orange Campus earned gold in the Suburban division 4x400 meter last night at the Millrose Trials running 3:20.84! That now pushes them to US#2 on the season, US#1 came from this same meet as Huntington (NY) ran 3:20.71 in the Long Island division. Their splits were 51.40, 49.97, 50.56, and 48.91 with Corey Poole on anchor.  

In the girls mile Briana Gess placed third with a time of 4:55.11, that is NJ#2 US#6 on the 1600m converted list. This was the first we've seen of Gess this indoor season, a great way to open the year individually. Ciara Roche, our current 1600 state leader, was 5th with 4:57.69 and Rachel Suss 12th with 5:06.99.
