Haddonfield girls pile up 52 points on way to 6th state relays title since 2000!!!

Juniors Sarah Naticchia, Allison Colflesh, Payton Weiner and Lindsay Colflesh all ran on two winning relay teams, and the Haddonfield girls  won their sixth state relays title Friday.

Haddonfield scored 52 points, doubling up Rahway and Holmdel, who tied for second with 25 points.

The DMR ran 12:33.00, No. 1 in South Jersey this year and No. 3 in the state. The sprint medley ran 4:19.01, No. 3 in South Jersey this year and No. 4 in the state. And the 4-by-800 ran 9:51.15, No. 8 in the state and No. 3 in South Jersey.

Naticchia ran on the DMR and SMR, Weiner and Allison Colflesh on the 4-by-8 and DMR and Lindsay Colflesh on the SMR and DMR. Senior Katherine Rice and junior Olivia Stoner also ran 3,200-meter relay legs, and senior Rachel Bonnet and senior Grace Kegler contributed SMR legs.

Allison Colflesh, Weiner, junior Grace Donch and Stoner also ran on the 1,600-meter relay team, which placed third in 4:15.61.

It looks like Haddonfield also won the pole vault relay and placed third in the high jump relay, although it would be nice if the official results compiled field event totals.

Junior Robin Rosen cleared 10-6 in the vault, matching Seneca junior Julia Greeley for the best clearance of the day, and Kegler cleared a PR 8-0 in what appears to be only her second career pole vault competition.

Bonnet cleared 5-0 and Robin Rosen 4-8 for third place in the high jump.

The Haddonfield girls won their first state relays titles in Group 1 in 2000, 2001 and 2003 and have since won Group 1 in 2014 and Group 2 in 2017 and 2020. 

The Delsea girls swept the 800- and 1,600-meter relays. More on the Crusader later!

NOTE: The official results included some incorrect relay lineups for Haddonfield, and an earlier version of this story included those names. The current information should all be correct. We apologize for the errors.
