Haddonfield boys roll to 18th state XC title since 1978 and 3rd Group 2 championship in a row!!!!!

The Haddonfield Bulldog XC machine keeps rolling!

Haddonfield won its 3rd straight state title, 9th in the last 14 years and No. 18 overall Saturday.

Of course official results aren’t available, so we don’t have any details, but at least we know from legendary Jim Lambert at the finish line reporting for N.J. MileSplit that Haddonfield did win the Group 2 team title.

Only CBA [30] and Bernards [23] have won more state titles than Haddonfield in meet history. Only Haddon Township [12] has even won half as many in South Jersey history.

Here’s a look at Haddonfield’s incredible record at states:

Group 1: 1985, 1987, 1989, 1990
Group 2: 1978, 1980, 2000, 2002, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2013, 2014, 2017, 2018, 2019

Haddonfield has now had two separate recent winning streaks in Group 2 — five straight from 2006 through 2010 and three straight from 2017 through this year.

No other school has won three straight in Group 2 since Voorhees from 1981 through 1983.

In all, that’s 18 titles in the last 42 years for the Bulldogs!

    Haddonfield’s average of 16:34 was not only the fastest they have ever run in Group State competition, but the fastest recorded by any team in Group 2 since these have been recorded beginning in 1997. Previous fastest was Voorhees’ 16:35 in 2015, and the previous fastest by Haddonfield was 16:37 in 2009. Haddonfield has only ever recorded three faster team averages at Holmdel: 16:20 in 2010, when they finished second at MOC, the MOC winning 16:21 in 2001 and 16:31 last year, when they also finished second at MOC.
