Wildwood Catholic’s Emily Johnson continues remarkable improvement for Seton Hall women’s XC team!!!

Emily Johnson’s season is off to a good start for Seton Hall. The Wildwood Crest native placed fourth overall and was Seton Hall’s No. 2 runner as the Pirates placed second in the Monmouth University Kickoff over the weekend.

Johnson, a senior co-captain who ran at Wildwood Catholic, ran 14:45 over 4,000 meters at Thompson Park in Jamesburg. She finished just 18 seconds behind overall winner and senior teammate Christina Rutkowski from Middletown South.

Take a look at Johnson’s year-to-year improvement on the same course in the same season-opening meet in each of the last four years:

2014: 36th 16:40
2015: 36th in 16:18
2016: 14th in 15:27
2017: 4th in 14:45

Not bad for someone who had PRs of 5:25 and 11:51 in high school!

Monmouth out-raced Seton Hall 30-49 to win the team title in the seven-team race, which had 76 finishers.

Next for Seton Hall is the Wolfie Invitational at Stony Brook, N.Y., on Saturday morning.
