Old standbys Trenton boys 3:22.3 and Willingboro girls 3:55.4 swept the field at the New
Jersey Millrose 1600-meter relay trials today at seton hall

Trenton took the boys event with a fine 3:22.3 effort that was very
evenly paced. Three veterans, Irv Stills, Fred Vanues and Calvin Rhodes ran
with newcomer Ashari Agyapong. Rhodes had the fastest split at 49.8, but
Stills and Vanues were just over 50.0

Willingboro, in a different heat, ran 3:25.0 with its fastest leg a
49.8 from 7-2 high jumper Mike Morrison (Ironically, one of the timers at
the meet was Seton Hall assistant coach Gary Duncase PRs are 7-3 in the HJ
and sub-46.0 in the 400)

Winslow Twp had only one set of its twins on hand, Dante and Duane
Freeman, who led off and anchored in 50.6 and 49.8. The Miles twins are
basketball players, though a football injury has sidelined 24-plus long
jumper Anthony at this time. (It came from football, where they are
rspectively quarterback and wide reciver though weighing no more than 150

The fastest leg came from Ken Sinkovitz of Bergen Catholic, who ran
49.5 on the second leg. He has finally shrugged off a flu bugf which
hampered his earlier December activity.

There were just four girls' teams present with the one possible
challenger to Willingboro, Queen of Peace, scratching. The 'Boro was third
at the first pass, but took over after that with its veteran team of Channel
Hamilton, Halimah Bashir, Rhea Mann and Okechi Ogbuokiri running 3:55.4.
Okechi anchored in 56.3. Trenton was 2nd in 4:03.7.
