HOLY PACK RUNNING!!!! Ocean City boys pack 5 scorers in 15 seconds in coasting to another SJ-3 championship!!!!!

The Ocean City boys put on a ridiculous display of pack running Saturday, not only gapping 15 seconds between their five scorers but placing their top six within 18 seconds and getting all seven runners across the line in the span of 25 seconds.

That’s a very difficult formula to beat, and Ocean City cruised to a 25-96 win over Highland in the South Jersey Group 3 race at Delsea for the Red Raiders’ second win in a row and seventh since 2004.

This is the 20th consecutive year Ocean City will advance to states. The Red Raiders placed 9th in S.J. 3 in 1999 and have been in the top five every year since.

Senior Luke Kramer, sophomore Owen Ritti, junior Brendan Schlatter, senior Max Kelly and senior Anthony Conte all ran between 16:26 and 16:41, and they were backed up by senior Mike Farley and junior Cameron DiTroia, who made it seven finishers in 25 seconds!!!

Really, the best way to get an idea of how well Ocean City ran is just to look at the results:

157342268616957960
