4x400 Meter Relay - State Rankings

Union Catholic is looking to keep their three year winning streak alive ranked NJ#3 at 3:56.97 on the season they ran 3:59.01 last weekend to win the NPA Group championship. They'll have to go through a talented Winslow Twp squad to do it though, Winslow unleashed their top talent last week to run 3:57.36 to win Group 3 and they are NJ#1 this winter thanks to their 3:54.99 from the Millrose Games. 

Rumson-Fair Haven made a case for themselves winning Eastern States on Tuesday running 3:56.85 to crack the top 20 nationally and move up to NJ#2. Woodbridge, West Essex, Egg Harbor Twp, Ridge, and Ramapo all in the mix as well.

4x800 Meter Relay Showcase - State Rankings

This one is always hard to preview going in with variables in the mix such as if certain athletes are concentrating on individual events, if a B-team is going to run. But Union Catholic is looking strong going in as the top seed and ranked NJ#1 this winter with a 9:13.90 from the Millrose Games. UC also has the fastest time at the Bubble this season with their 9:41.47 back at the State Relay Championships. 

Ridge is ranked second, they won the inaugural indoor 4x800m showcase last year. With a strong history in this event this school has won the outdoor 4x800m title at MOCs the past three seasons as well. They are NJ#2 at 9:16.56, having won Tuesday's Eastern States.
