Sebastien Reed solo’d a South Jersey #1 9:27.16 at the Bubble Saturday, an indoor-outdoor PR for the Pitman senior.
That’s fastest by any Gloucester County runner indoors since Nick Costello of Delsea ran 9:24.71 at states in 2012.
Reed broke his overall PR of 9:27.52, which he ran last spring at Middletown North, and lowered his indoor PR from 9:28.59, which he ran last year at the Meet of Champions.
Reed, a two-time state Group 1 XC champion, won the race by 150 meters over Brady Shute of Woodbury, who was second in 9:53.19.
Cherokee junior Brett Shea (9:54.45), Clearview junior Anas Bensaoud and Lenape senior Matt Richardson (9:55.89) also broke 10 minutes.
Reed’s time is fastest by a South Jersey Group 1 runner since Owen Long ran 9:24.21 at states in 2016.
Mike Mantini of Gateway has held the Gloucester County two-mile record of 9:19.0 for 42 years.
