Cinnaminson’s Austin Gabay races to first sectional title at Central Jersey Group 2 race!!!

Cinnaminson senior Austin Gabay won his first career sectional title in track or cross country Saturday, running away from the field at the Central Jersey Group 2 race at Thompson Park in Jamesburg.

He’s Cinnaminson’s ninth sectional XC champ but the first in Central Jersey and the first in 13 years. He’s also the first South Jersey runner ever to win a Central Jersey XC title in any group.

Gabay ran 16:13 over 5,000 meters, winning by 35 meters over Voorhees senior Dylan Fritz.

Gabay had been second at sectionals three times in track and cross country but had never previously won a sectional title. He was 3rd at the Central Jersey Group 2 meet last year.

Previous Cinnaminson sectional winners are Gary Noa [1971], Chris Lopez [1989], John Keevey [1990], Matt Feeley [1993], Bill Mason [1998], Jon Anderson [2003], Steve Grabowski [2005] and Brian Tetreault [2006].

The rest of Cinnaminson’s lineup included five freshmen and a sophomore.
