Shawnee sophomores Isabella Turner and Claire Hauser finished 1-2 in the 1,600-meter run Monday night at the Haddonfield Distance Night.
Turner won the race in 5:12.68 and Hauser was second in 5:13.22.
Turner’s previous PR was a 5:14.59 at last year’s Burlington County Open. Hauser’s 5:13.22 is a season best and less than a second off her PR of 5:12.55 from Group 3 sectionals last year.
The times are No. 1 and No. 2 in Burlington County this year and No. 5 and No. 6 in South Jersey. Shawnee is the only South Jersey school with two girls under 5:15.
They also put Turner and Hauser in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots in South Jersey Group 4 going into sectionals, behind only Kingsway’s Kylie Anicic, who has run 5:08.86. They’re also the top two South Jersey times this year by sophomores.
Cinnaminson senior Madison Edwards also PR’d, making it a 1-2-3 Burlington County finish with a 5:15.47. Her previous PR was a 5:17.08 at the indoor state Group 2 meet at the Bennett Center.
