Once again, Haddonfield and Lenape lock up in epic DMR battle at Armory

Two years ago, Haddonfield and Lenape locked up in a historic distance medley at the Varsity Classic, with the Bulldogs and Indians recording the No. 7 and No. 9 DMR times in South Jersey indoor history.

Haddonfield and Lenape met up again at this year’s Varsity Classic this week, and although the times weren’t quite as fast, they were certainly fast enough to take notice – No. 8 and No. 14 nationally.

Haddonfield ran 12:11.7 and Lenape 12:17.4, the top two times by South Jersey schools this year and No. 2 and 3 performances by New Jersey schools so far this season. As you can see by the all-time South Jersey indoor DMR list below, the times are No. 10 and No. 15 in South Jersey history indoors.

North Rockland won in 11:51.0 with North Hunterdon second in 12:09.1, fastest by a New Jersey school this year.

The race produced the No. 2, 6, 8, 14, 20, 22, 23, 27 times in the country this year.

For Haddonfield, Kaitlyn Bonnet, Gianna Cucinotta, Lauren Lynch and Briana Gess ran, and for Lenape it was Alexa Woltjen, Dana Duffield, Shannon Lambert and Megan Quimby.
