From Press staff reports

The Egg Harbor Township High School girls track and field clinched the first Cape-Atlantic League American Conference title in program history Monday by winning a tri-meet with Ocean City and host Absegami in Galloway Township.

The Eagles (8-0), ranked fourth in The Press Elite 11, beat Ocean City 87-54 and defeated Absegami 110-30.

EHT's Katie Champion swept the hurdles events in both meets, and anchored the winning 4x400 relay team. Teammate Tiara White was first in both meets in the 200 and the triple jump.

Ocean City's Shannon Tarves was the overall winner of the high jump and the long jump and also won the sprints against Absegami.

"I'm very excited for the girls and I'm excited to be their coach," Vazquez said. "They've accomplished a lot this season. Their determination, self-sacrifice, strength and perseverence is unbelievable. It really showed what could happen when a team comes together. It wasn't just one girls that brought us the title. They put their minds together and won as a team. I've never coached girls who are so motivated and strong."
