Naticchia, Weiner lead Haddonfield girls to 4th in Meet of Champions, best in program history!!!!!

Sarah Naticchia and Peyton Weiner both ran huge Holmdel PRs Saturday to lead the Haddonfield girls to the best Meet of Champions finish in school history!

Haddonfield, ranked 9th in the New Jersey MileSplit state poll, placed 4th with 172 points, behind only North Hunterdon (65), Ridgewood (78) and Middletown South (134).

Haddonfield’s best previous finish was a 5th place in 2013. Fourth place is the highest by any Camden County school in the girls race in 23 years — since 1996, when Bishop Eustace was fourth.

The Lady Bulldogs averaged 19:50, fourth-fastest ever by a South Jersey school at Holmdel County Park behind Haddonfield at the 2013 Meet of Champions [19:35], Kingsway at the 2017 M-of-C [19:45] and Shawnee at the 2013 meet [19:49].

Naticchia, a junior running XC for the first time, placed 15th in 19:03, and Weiner, a senior, took 25th in 19:13. As far as team points go they were 9th and 15th.

Junior Allison Colflesh was 66th in 20:05, senior Lilly Sirover 74th in 20:14 and senior Evie Andrewes 95th in 20:35. For team scoring purposes they were 39th, 47th and 62nd.

Haddonfield finished 16 points ahead of 6th-place Holmdel, which had finished 12 points ahead of Haddonfield to win the state title.

Four of Haddonfield’s five scorers set double-digit PRs on the hallowed 5,000-meter course at Holmdel County Park

Naticchia’s previous Holmdel best was 19:14, Weiner’s was 19:32, Colflesh’s was 20:15, Sirover’s was 20:41 and Andrewes’ was 20:53!
