Hammonton graduate Lou Corgliano, now a Maryland senior, PR’d in the steeplechase this weekend, running 9:05.48 at the Florida Relays.
Corgliano placed third behind a post-grad who ran 8:55 and a Florida A&M runner who finished about half a second ahead of him.
Corgliano’s previous steeple PR was a 9:10.55 from the same meet last year. This was his first steeple this spring.
His time is fastest by a Maryland runner since Greg Kelsey ran 8:55.80 at the 2010 NCAA East Regionals in Greensboro, N.C.
Corgliano moved into the all-time Maryland top-10, displacing Rob Bedell, who ran 9:07.93 in 1990.
At Hammonton, Corgliano ran 9:04.94 for 3,200 meters on the track and was a Foot Locker finalist and third in the XC Meet of Champions as as senior in the fall of 2013.
