Kingsway girls score a perfect 15 to win Gloucester County Championships, then add Tri-County title to their resume!!!

The Kingsway girls threw a perfect game in the Gloucester County Championships, sweeping the top five spots for a perfect 15 points.

The team title is the 13th for Kingsway and fourth in a row.

Sophomore Ashlynne Burke led the way, running 19:06 on the 5,000-meter course at West Deptford Park. Senior Lauren Krott took second in 19:25, and sophomore Sydney Watts was also well under 20 minutes, crossing the line in 19:35 for third.

Twins Allie and Emily Pierontoni placed fourth and fifth in 20:01 and 20:04.

Kingsway also scored 15 points last year and did it again this year without the top two runners from last year.

But the Lady Dragons actually ran better this year, if that’s possible. They went 1-2-3-4-5-10-14 last year but 1-2-3-4-5-7-10 this year, with freshman Allison MacFarland seventh in 20:23 and junior Kennedy Waterson 10th in 21:08.

Even if Kingsway had rested its top two runners, they still would have scored just 18 points.

Williamstown packed its five runners from 10th to 18th to outscore Washington Township 65-73 for second place.

The last school other than Kingsway to win the Gloucester County title is Clearview in 2014. Kingsway’s previous titles came in 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1999 and 2012.

Kingsway came back to win the Tri-County Championships on Wednesday, outscoring Pitman 27-73.

Krott was the overall winner in 18:50, with Burke fourth in 19:14, Watts sixth in 19:29, Allie Pierontoni seventh in 19:51 and MacFarland ninth in 20:02. The race was at Cumberland Regional.

Pitman senior Briana Hagerty [2nd in 19:04], Schalick sophomore Juia Smith [3rd in 19:04], Delsea sophomore Carly Nicholson [5th in 19:25], Clearview sophomore Katherine Byrne [8th in 19:59] and Clearview junior Hailey Tabar [10th in 20:16] rounded out the top 10.
