Edison competed at the Greater Middlesex Championships at South Brunswick from May 21 to May 22. While competing in a competition with the highest stakes, Edison athletes hit many PRs and seasonal records, exceeding expectations.

The boys’ relay teams saw success in all their respective events, with the 4×400 meter and 4×100 meter team clinching fourth and fifth place respectively. Additionally, the 4×800 team achieved third place, powered by a 2:01 by Bryce Hickerson ‘26 and a 2:05 by Moustafa Abdelaal ‘25.

“I mean it’s one of the biggest races we have, so it was of the utmost importance that we stepped up,” said Hickerson. “I’m glad that we performed to our best capability, and got the result we deserve, but there’s always going to be room for improvement.”

Along with relay success, the boys’ sprinters hit PRs across the board, with every 200 meter runner hitting a season-best, led by a 22.71 by Ricky Harvey ‘24. Harvey also set a 100 meter seasonal best, hitting 11:00 and clinching fourth place.
