Double winner Luis Peralta of Passaic, making his season debut, and Victoria Vanriele of Gov. Livingston both burned US #1 times in the 600-meter run, and Jenna Rogers of Rutherford cleared a NJ #1 and US #2 5-10 in the high jump at Ocean Breeze.
Peralta, the New Balance National 800 champ last June in 1:49.10, broke the facility record and moved up to No. 4 on NJ's all-time list in the three-lap race with his winning time of 1:20.09. He also won the 1,000 in a NJ #1 2:35.84.
Rogers, a junior, tied the facility record with her 5-10 clearance to improve on her NJ #1 and US #2 performance.
Rogers, the state outdoor record holder in the high jump with the 6-0 3/4 she made as a freshman to win the 2017 New Balance National title, has a great shot this season at breaking the state indoor record of 6-0, which was set in 1985 by Tatiana Smolin of Randolph.
Christian Davis of Piscataway blasted an NJ #4 6.55 to edge state leader Jacob Leigh of Scotch Plains in the boys 55 dash. Leigh, NJ#1 with a 6.50, was second in 6.61. Leigh also ran a NJ #2 50.30 to win the 400.
