step0001Pitman graduate Hannah Vendetta, now a senior at Rowan, was first across the line Saturday in the 22nd annual Salisbury (Md.) Fall Classic.

Vendetta ran 23:28 over 6,000 meters on Salisbury’s home course on the school’s campus. She won by about 14 meters over Catie Cambron of Salisbury.

Vendetta was the NJAC mile champion indoors and 1,500 champ outdoors last spring.

Salisbury, ranked No. 5 in the NCAA Division 3 Region by the U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association, won the team title 31-26 over Rowan despite three Rowan runners in the top five.

Madison Edwards, a freshman from Cinnaminson, made her college debut with an impressive fourth-place finish in 23:37 and senior Jennifer Klavens of Washington Township was fifth in 23:53. Edwards was second last fall in the South Jersey Group 2 race, and Klavens was 12th in the NJAC XC race last fall.

Rounding out Rowan’s all-South Jersey top five were sophomore Alyssa Sanders of Pitman, 10th in 24:06, and Carly Tool of Seneca, 11th in 24:23.

Vendetta and Sanders were teammates on the 2013 Pitman team that won the state Group 1 title by 58 points.
