A new feature on the site this week called Friday Focus where we take a moment to take a closer look at a great performance, trend, rankings list, interesting find, or moment in New Jersey track and field.
This week we have video of not one, not two, but three race winning anchor leg kicks by Deptford's Kiara Lester.
The video starts with the Group 2 fast heat of the 4x200 meter where Lester gets the baton in 2nd before cruising to victory, NJ#2 1:43.84. We move on from there to the 4x100 meter relay where the Deptford girls find themselves in a close third at the final hand off but have no fear as they end up winning with a NJ#4 time of 49.28. Then lastly Lester makes a final push in the 4x400 meter passing the leader on the back stretch and never looking back. Their 4x400 meter is now NJ#2 with a time of 4:00.01.
Check out the full Deptford relay squad rosters below, great work by all these girls.
