Possibly a microcosm of the overall team battle for the girls Monmouth County Relay Championship title the Red Bank Catholic and Rumson-Fair Haven girls had it out during the very first event, the 4x800m relay, on Friday night. RBC took the win with a state leading 9:40.19 US#5 and Rumson-Fair Haven wasn't too far behind at 9:42.94 for NJ#2 US#10. 

In the final team scores RBC would win the meet, their second straight title, with 54.2 points to Rumson's 49.2 total. You can watch their entertaining showdown of a race in the 4x800m above, the final 4x400m event that sealed the team win will be available soon as well on the meet page. 

Rumson had a high ranking win of their own though, in the SMR where they returned the favor to RBC winning another close one 4:18.99 NJ#3 to RBC's 4:19.16 NJ#4. Both cracked the top 15 Nationally in that event as well. 

That 4x800m wasn't the only state leading race that night however, in the DMR the Colts Neck girls took a commanding lead and went on to win running 12:40.81 US#8.

There was also great race to watch in the shuttle hurdle relays, a close finished between Middletown North 33.03 NJ#6 and Rumson-Fair Haven 33.06 NJ#7.  


In the girls pole vault relay the Matawan girls cleared a total height of 21-06 setting a new meet record. The old height was 20-06 by Holmdel in 2014. That Matawan team included senior Mue Carroll at 11-00 NJ#2 and Dayna Moyer 10-06 NJ#6. 

Another field relay meet record was destroyed in the girls shot put where Howell's Bryanna Wilson and Hanna Rosenmertz totaled 75-02. The old record was held by Asbury Park since 1990 at 69-10! Wilson led the meet throwing 38-02 and Rosenmertz second overall at 37-10. 

Christian Brothers Academy won the boys team title and did so earning gold in the 4x200m, 4x800m, DMR, SMR, and shot put relay. Their 4x800m moves them to NJ#3 at 8:11.56 and their SMR win of 3:38.74 is NJ#5. Their shot put team consisted of Nicholas Morse with his meet leading mark of 50-07.5 and Bruce Martin's eighth overall 41-04.75. 

This is CBA's ninth straight Monmouth County Relays team title and 25th overall since 1981.  

In the boys high jump Middletown South's Mark Anselmi opened his season clearing 6-06 and is tied for NJ#2.  

The boys shuttle saw Freehold Township take the win running a NJ#3 time of 31.23.
