When Pennsville Memorial High School graduate Tyler Cummings -- a three-time Salem County Runner of the Year -- was a senior with the Eagles last year, he set a personal record for the 1,600 meters with a time of 4:25.45 at the Tri-County Conference Championships.

On March 21 as a Division I Coastal Carolina University freshman, Cummings placed sixth at the Weems Baskin Invitational at the University of South Carolina with a new collegiate-best 4:03.54 in the 1,500.

He also ran 2:00.67 in the 800, which is another PR.
