Kevin Antczak, Austin Gabay, Oliver Adler race their way onto all-time Holmdel time list!!!

Seniors Kevin Antczak of Mainland, senior Austin Gabay of Cinnaminson and Oliver Adler of Cherry Hill East raced their way onto the all-time Holmdel sub-16 list Saturday at Shore Coaches.

We’ll start with Antczak, who won the Group A race in astounding fashion. Let’s recap:

–> Antczak ran 15:32, which is the fastest time recorded by a South Jersey runner on the legendary Holmdel County Park 5,000-meter course in 31 years and second-fastest ever, behind the  15:16 that Jason DiJoseph of Paul VI ran to win the 1988 Meet of Champions.

–> The fastest previous time at Holmdel by an Atlantic County runner was Louis Corgliano’s 15:35 when he was third behind CBA’s Mike McClemens and Freehold Township’s Dylan Tarpey at the 2013 Meet of Champions.

–> The fastest previous time by a Mainland runner at Holmdel was Greg Hughes’ 15:39 when he was placed second to Mohamad Khadraoui of JFK Paterson at the 2003 Meet of Champions.

–> Antczak’s previous PR at Holmdel was a 16:01 when he was took at last year’s Meet of Champions.

–> He became the first Mainland Shore Coaches winner since Hughes won Group B in 2002 and 2003.

–> He now shares the meet record for the Shore Coaches since it moved from nearby Brookdale Community College in Lincroft to Holmdel in 1979. Two other runners ran 15:32 on Saturday – Luke Jackson of West Windsor-Plainsboro North, who finished second in the A race to Antczak, was also credited with a time of 15:32, as was Liam Murphy of Allentown, who won the Group C race. So the three-fastest times in Shore Coaches history came on the same day!

Gabay ran the fifth-fastest time of the day, winning the Group E race in 15:58. That’s No. 3 in Holmdel history by a Cinnaminson runner, behind Jon Anderson’s 15:51 in 2003 and Michael Ungvarsky’s 15:57 in 2016. He’s the 10th Burlington County runner to go sub-16 at Holmdel, and all 10 are from Cherokee, Cinnaminson or Shawnee.

15:40 … Shawn Wilson [Cherokee], 2012
15:43 … Marc Pelerin [Cherokee], 2001

15:57 … Michael Ungvarsky [Cinnaminson], 2016
15:58 … Austin Gabay [Cinnaminson], 2019

And Adler ran the No. 2 time in Cherry Hill East history with his 15:58 for fourth place in the Group A race. Aaron Groff ran 15:37 in 2015. Adler and Gabay are tied for fifth-fastest overall time in all seven races on Saturday.

Adler’s time is No. 15 ever by a Camden County runner but only seven seconds out of the top 10 with states and Meet of Champions still to come.
