The Union Catholic track and field teams owned the Union County Relays on Saturday as the Vikings threw down several sizzling performances, highlighted by a state record by the girls in the 4×200, on the way to sweep of the team titles at Gary Kehler Stadium in Westfield.
The girls ran away with its third straight title, 125-58 over runner-up Westfield, and the boys outscored runner-up Elizabeth, 116-84, to win its 6th title in the past 7 years. Full results of the meet
In the girls 4×200, Sydney McLaughlin led off for UC with a 23.2 split. Khamil Evans followed with a 24.3. Then Amaya Chadwick went 24.7 and Sydney Tucker anchored in 25.2 to stop the clock at 1:37.53. That erased the 14-year-old state record of 1:37.77 set in 2003 by Franklin, and is No. 14 in the nation this season.
