Tireless distance crew & versatile Rachel Bonnet lead Haddonfield girls to record-setting performance at sectionals!!!!!

Led by their tireless distance crew and the remarkably versatile senior Rachel Bonnet, the Haddonfield girls won their state-record ninth team title Sunday in the 13-year history of indoor sectionals.

Haddonfield scored 137 points, the most ever in any South Jersey indoor sectional and most ever in any Group 2 sectional and one point shy of the record for most points in any indoor sectional.

Haddonfield had been tied with Bernards and Ridge with eight titles since indoor sectionals were first held in 2008. Bernards competed in North II Group 2 on Friday and placed fifth, and Ridge will compete in the North II Group 4 sectionals this coming Friday,

The Haddonfield girls won Group 1 in 2008, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2015 and 2016 and have now won Group 2 in 2019 and 2020. 

Haddonfield swept the 800, 1,600 and 3,200 for 72 of a possible 72 points in the three long track events.

The only school to score more points in an indoor girls sectional is Bernards, which scored 138 to win North Jersey Section 2 Group 1 in 2010.

Despite Haddonfield’s three distance sweeps, the star of the day may have been Bonnet, who not only competed in an unusual selection of events — the high jump, hurdles and shot put – she recorded a first and two seconds for 26 huge points for the Bulldogs.

Bonnet won the high hurdles in 9.10 and placed second in the high jump at 5-0 and shot put with a 33-9.

Lindsay Colflesh led the 1-2-3 800 sweep with an indoor PR 2:19.84, with Allison Colflesh second in 2:21.33 and junior Olivia Stoner third in 2:23.34, an indoor PR.

Here’s a post about the 1,600 – https://wordpress.com/post/sjtrackblog.com/17192 – which Haddonfield swept behind juniors Sarah Naticchia, Allison Colflesh and Payton Weiner.

Naticchia and seniors Evie Andrewes and Lilly Sirover ran on the 3,200-meter sweep, Naticchia winning in 11:25.46, Andrewes second in 11:53.40 and Sirover third in 11:55.47. That’s a 26-second indoor PR for Andrewes.

Lindsay Colflesh also placed third in the 400 in 1:00.12.

Grace Kegler took second in the hurdles in 9.21 and third in the pole vault at 9-0. That’s a one-foot PR in what appears to be just her fourth career pole vault competition, according to MileSplit.

Junior Robin Rosen tied for fourth in the high jump at 4-10 and was second in the pole vault at 10-6.

    Olivia Stoner’s 2:23.34 is her indoor PR but not her outdoor PR for the 800. That is 2:17.86 2019 spring Season. Is it possible to correct that?
