Although the quartet of Nik James, Chuk Nwankwo, Samar Raju, and Nick Medeiros came up a little short in that attempt, they still came away with an eye-popping performance, stopping the clock at 3:29.73! That's the fastest time in the state and No. 2 in the nation this season, and No. 2 in Middlesex County history.
After James and Nwankwo ran the 200 legs (a combined 45.90), Raju ran 51.12 for 400, and Georgetown-bound Nick Medeiros cranked out a 1:52.73 anchor.
Old Bridge's 3:29.73 trails only the 3:28.04 by Lewisville Marcus of Texas on the national high school list this season, and is behind only the 3:28.14 that Old Bridge ran at the 1999 East Coast Relays on the Middlesex County All-Time Outdoor list.
