Cole Cramer Blasts Record Setting Sprint Double At Ocean

Cole Cramer blazed his way into the records books with an electrifying sprint double at the Bull Bruno Ocean County Championships, which concluded on Friday at Jackson Liberty High School.

The junior at Southern Regional burned a 10.39 (watch it in the video above) in the 100-meter dash trials on Wednesday, tied for No. 7 in NJ history for all conditions, to break the meet record, take down his own Ocean County record for all conditions, and tie the NJ Junior Class and Shore Conference records. There was no wind gauge. Cramer came back to win the final in 10.42.

Cramer's 10.39 shattered the Ocean County record of 10.52 that he ran last month at the Colt Challenge at CBA, and equaled the Shore Conference and State Junior Class records (for all conditions) of 10.39 that was set by Miles Shuler-Foster of Long Branch when he won 100 at the 2010 Meet of Champions at Frank Jost Field in South Plainfield. Shuler's time was run with a wind-legal reading of 0.4.

That's not all!!

Cramer came back to the county meet on Friday and dropped a sizzling meet record 21.29 to win the 200, just off his Shore Conference record of 21.18 that he ran on April 24. Cramer's time of 21.18 in the 200 places him No. 14 all-time in state history!!

Getting back to Cramer's 10.39 in the 100. With that time, Cramer became the third sprinter in the state to go 10.40 or faster in the 100 this season, the first time in NJ history that more than two guys have gone 10.40 or faster in the same year

Ajani Dwyer of Washington has run 10.38, Cramer is at 10.39, and Malachi James of Burlington City has gone 10.40.   

So there is a good chance that the wind-legal state record in the 100 of 10.35 set by Jamar Ervin of Camden in 2000 could go down!
