MIDDLETOWN – A day that started out as a beautiful spring afternoon with perfect conditions for outdoor track in the low 70's and plenty of sunshine, quickly turned into a gloomy afternoon, as the fog and cold made their way back to the Jersey Shore, making for typical weather conditions for this spring season. The weather may have changed, but the athletes showed no negative change as they all showed why they deserved to be at the Monmouth County Relays at Middletown North.
This was the case for the Monmouth Regional girls distance medley relay team that sprinted out to the lead early and never looked back. Samantha Ragenklint, who ran a 3:46 on her opening 1200 meters, got the Falcons off to a flying start, followed by Kayla Anthony with a 64 on her 400 meters, then Sydney Todd with a 2:18 on her 800 meters, and finished with Amanda Stone running 5:14 on her 1600 meters.
The four runners combined to take home gold in the event with a time of 12:24.7 and along the way set the new Monmouth Regional High School record with the time.
