Senior Sarah Pierce led seven Cherry Hill East runners in the top 22, and East ran away with the Olympic Conference girls XC title by a 63-88 score over Shawnee.

It was Cherry Hill East’s third title in the last five years. East also won in 2014 and 2016.

That’s a 20:15 average on the fast new course at Dream Park in Logan Township, near Rowan University.

Paul VI scored 92 and Cherokee 113. Cherry Hill East is ranked No. 5 in south Jersey and Shawnee is No. 6.

Kate Rathman tore up the Dream Park 5,000-meter course in 18:22, with Bishop Eustace’s Katy Storti also under 19 minutes at 18:49. Eustace senior Clare Morelli was third in 19:07.
