Jack Bolling of Haddon Heights races to freshman title at Cherokee Challenge!!!

Jack Bolling of Haddon Heights on Saturday morning became the first South Jersey runner in five years to win the freshman race at the 24th annual Cherokee Challenge.

Bolling ran 10:49 over the two-mile course in Marlton, edging Paul Kresloff of Moorestown by 25 meters.

The last four freshman boys winners at Cherokee were from Pennsylvania or Delaware. The last South Jersey winner was Joe Grandizio of Kingsway in 2014.

The last 1-2 S.J. finish in the freshman race came in 2012, when Austin Stoner of Haddonfield and Owen Long of Haddon Township ran 1-2.

Bolling is the first individual winner from Heights in 15 years, since Matt Mitchell won the junior race in 2004. He was the Colonial Conference Middle School champion last year as an 8th-grader.
