Junior Sophie Steidle is the only Collingswood girl to win a Camden County XC title. And now she’s won two of them.
Steidle edged Highland freshman Grace Wassell at the finish line at Timber Creek Park to win her second straight county title.
Steidle ran 20:09.00 and Wassell was two steps back in 20:09.65 on the 5,000-meter course, with nobody else finishing within a minute of the two frontrunners.
Steidle was Collingswood’s only entrant in the race.
Haddonfield won its third straight team title, 31-62, over Highland. From 2007 through 2016 Haddonfield did not compete in the county meet.
Senior Evie Andrewes [4th in 21:23], sophomore Jess Goode [6th in 21:32], freshman Helene Usher [7th in 22:03] and senior Katherine Rice [8th in 22:19] all finished in the top 10 for the Bulldogs. Junior Georgia Nussey was Haddonfield’s fifth sorer, taking 12th in 22:36.
Others in the top 10 were sophomore Vanessa Marinero [3rd, 21:22] and freshman Juliana Grasso of Timber Creek [3rd and 5th in 21:22 and 21:32], sophomore Megan Faucett of Cherry Hill West [9th in 22:23] and sophomore Heather Mattern of Highland [10th in 22:24].
