Haddonfield, Cherokee, Cherry Hill East boys earn spots on all-time S.J. Holmdel team list!!!!!

Haddonfield and Cherokee both moved into the all-time South Jersey team list at Holmdel on Saturday with their winning performances at states.

Haddonfield and Cherokee both averaged 16:33 for their five scorers, which move them into the No. 10 and No. 11 all-time spots.

Haddonfield was actually slightly faster — 1.21 total seconds, or an average of about a quarter of a second per runner.

They were 3rd- and 4th-fastest Saturday at Holmdel, behind only Parochial A winner Christian Brothers Academy [16:15 average] and Group 3 winner Mendham [16:21]. Cherry Hill East [16:41 average] was next-fastest among South Jersey schools and that’s the Cougars’ fastest since 2014. It’s also No. 18 on the all-time S.J. list.

Great observation from Dave Stewart, who points out that Haddonfield’s 16:34 is fastest ever in Group 2, breaking the record of 16:35 set in 2015 by Voorhees.

Surprisingly, Cherokee’s 16:33 average is fastest in school history. The Chiefs averaged 16:35 twice — when they were second at the 2000 Meet of Champions and at this year’s Shore Coaches.

Obviously, the course runs much faster now than back then, so a 16:35 in 2000 would be considered a superior performance than a 16:35 now.

In any case, Haddonfield, Cherokee and Cherry Hill East along with Group 1 winner Haddon Township all get another crack at Holmdel — the roller-coasters, the Bowl, the tennis courts, the back woods and the final open straightaway — at the Meet of Champions Saturday.

Here’s the all-time South Jersey Holmdel team list. As always, corrections and additions are welcome. Just send me a note through the comments link.
