Another 3200 PR for Aldridge, who keeps climbing the all-time S.J. list!

Alyssa Aldridge continues to climb her way up through the all-time South Jersey 3,200-meter list.

After her 10:41.57 at the Rowan Invitational Friday night, the Mainland Regional sophomore is No. 16 in South Jersey history but only six seconds from the top 10.

The full list, with every South Jersey that’s ever run 10:45 or faster, is below.

Aldridge lowered her PR from 10:42.40, when she was third at the indoor Meet of Champions at the Toms River Bubble, to 10:41.57. Her previous outdoor PR was 10:58.99 from last year’s Cape Atlantic meet, where she was second to Devin Grisbaum of Ocean City.

On Friday, Aldridge ran solo pretty much the whole race. She led Julianna Catania of Egg Harbor by 20 meters after just two laps and then ran her third through seventh laps between 81 and 83 before closing in 76.

Catania also broke 11 minutes, finishing second in 10:59.81, an outdoor PR, although she has run 10:49.79 indoors.

Here are splits for Aldridge and Catania, as listed in Tomahawk’s official results.

             Aldridge                        Catania
400   74.45 / 74.45             75.51 / 75.51
800   79.85 / 2:34.30         83.13 / 2:38.64
1200    81.89 / 3:56.19       84.58 / 4:03.21
1600    82.19 / 5:18.38       85.84 / 5:29.04
2000    81.19 / 6:39.56       85.09 / 6:54.12
2400    83.10 / 8:02.66      86.20 / 8:20.32
2800    82.14 / 9:24.80      82.85 / 9:43.17
3200    76.78 / 10:41.57     76.64 / 10:59.81

Timber Creek junior Alyssa Condell, another sub-10:50 two-miler indoors, placed third with a season-best 11:05.71.

Aldridge, Catania and Condell now rank 1-3-4 in New Jersey this year and 1-2-3 in South Jersey.

Here is the all-time South Jersey list, with every girl that’s run 10:45 or faster. Incredible that 16 of the 20 performances have been achieved since 2005 and eight of the 20 since 2012.
