Haddonfield girls run 9:20, advance to Championship of America 3,200-Meter Relay at Penn!!!!!

The Haddonfield girls raced their way into the Championship of America 3,200-Meter Relay with a 9:20.33 for third place in the second small-school race Thursday at the 125th annual Penn Relays at Franklin Field.

Sarah Naticchia’s 2:17.82 leadoff leg got Haddonfield up front early, and her teammates kept the Bulldogs near the front the rest of the way, Lindsay Colflesh splitting 2:19.75, Payton Weiner 2:23.27 and Allison Colflesh 2:19.50.

The time is No. 17 in South Jersey history indoors or out and sixth-fastest in Haddonfield history.

Haddonfield was third in its race behind Newmann-Goretti of Philadelphia (9:05.84) and Union Catholic of Scotch Plains, N.J. (9:15.58).

The Bulldogs had the fifth-fastest time among all small schools and the sixth-fastest time overall.

The 12-fastest schools from the four combined races — two small-school races and two large-school races — advance to the Championship of America race, which is scheduled for 1:10 p.m. Friday.
