Haddonfield, Lenape girls lock up in historic DMR battle at Armory

The Haddonfield and Lenape girls both wanted to run a fast distance medley Thursday night at the Armory, and when the race was over the Bulldogs and Indians had both run fast enough to help rewrite the South Jersey record book.

Haddonfield and Lenape posted the No. 6 and No. 8 times in South Jersey indoor history, with Haddonfield winning in 12:03.4 on Briana Gess’s 4:51 anchor and Lenape just behind in 12:04.9.

It was a two-team race at the Varsity Classic, with North Rockland third in 12:14.9. Full results of the meet are here.

Haddonfield and Lenape now rank No. 2 and No. 3 in the U.S., behind only Suffern of New York, which ran 12:01.10 at the Armory on Jan. 21.

Let’s talk splits!

First, for Haddonfield: Kaitlyn Bonnet opened with a 3:44.1, with Carly Bonnet splitting 59.5, Julia Fonshell 2:28 and Gess 4:51.3.

For Lenape: Camille Franklin 3:44.4, Shannon Storms 59.5, Carly Pettipaw 2:14.3 and Megan Quimby 5:06.8.

Gess, a Foot Locker XC finalist as a freshman, passed Quimby with 200 meters to go, but Quimby passed her back on the final lap before Gess finally edged past Quimby in a battle of two of South Jersey’s top sophomore milers.

Incredibly, Haddonfield and Lenape are now responsible for 10 of the 13 sub-12:20 indoor DMR performances in South Jersey history.
