Haddonfield girls place 5 in top 15 and win first Shore Coaches title in 11 years!!!

The Haddonfield girls won their first Shore Coaches team title in 11 years Saturday, easily outscoring second-place Voorhees in the Varsity D race.

All five Haddonfield scorers finished in the top-15, and the Lady Bulldogs outscored Voorhees 38-88.

Haddonfield and Voorhees went into the race sharing the No. 8 spot in the New Jersey MileSplit top-10 rankings.

It was Haddonfield’s seventh team title all-time at Shore Coaches.

Juniors Sarah Naticchia and Payton Weiner placed third and fourth in 19:14 and 19:40, senior Lilly Sirover was ninth in 20:10, junior Linsday Colflesh ran 20:33 for 12th and senior Evie Andrews took 15th in 20:53.

Junior Allison Colflesh and sophomore Jess Goode made it seven finishers in the top 21 for Haddonfield.

The Haddonfield girls averaged 20:06 over the hilly Holmdel County Park course. Naticchia was racing Holmdel for the first time.

Andrews, Haddonfield’s fifth runner, finished ahead of the second runner from 19 of 20 other teams – all but Summit, whose second runner was 12th overall.

Haddonfield won four straight Group E team titles from 2005 through 2008. They also won Group B in 1982 (shared with Ocean City) and Group E in 1993.

Nattachia’s 19:14 is seventh-fastest ever by a Haddonfield girl and Wiener’s 19:40 is eighth-fastest, behind Briana Gess (17:45), Marielle Hall (18:17), Vanessa Wright (18:22), Erin Donohue (18:28), Shelby Cain (18:41) and Meghan Malloy (18:50).
