Long-time South Jersey rivals Lou Corgliano of Hammonton, now a junior running for Maryland, and Jimmy Daniels of Sterling, now a senior at St. Joe’s, met up again Friday and ran 1-2 in the 5,000-meter run at the Penn State National Invitational on the Horace Ashenfelter track in State College.
Corgliano won in 14:50.42 and Daniels was 10 meters behind in 14:52.20.
The time was an indoor PR for Daniels, whose previous under-cover best was a 15:00.34 at the NYC Gotham Cup at the Ocean Breeze complex on Staten Island on Jan. 22, 2016. Daniels just missed his overall PR of 14:49.81 set outdoors at the Colonial Relays at William & Mary in Williamsburg, Va., on April 4, 2014.
Corgliano has a 5,000 PR of 14:34.37 from the 2015 Sam Howell Invitational at Princeton and has an indoor 5,000 PR of 14:47.05 last January at the Great Dane Classic, also at the Ocean Breeze track.
