Still only a junior Fox's magical run broke Moorestown's school record of 1:55.4 set in 1963. He has come into form at the right time with the start of state season less than a week away, showing a new contender is in the mix. Fox led a very quick race where eight boys went sub two minutes, Greg Pelose of Haddonfield also broke his school record running 1:53.25 NJ#3 for second.
