Mainland graduate Alyssa Aldridge records huge 5,000 PR, top freshman at Big East Championships!!!!!

Georgetown freshman Alyssa Aldridge, a graduate of Mainland Regional, placed sixth in the 25-lap race at SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio, Monday in 16:43.26. She was the top freshman in the race.

Aldridge’s previous collegiate PR was an 18:17.93 outdoors at Princeton last spring. She ran 17:24.43 at New Balance Nationals as a Mainland sophomore in the winter of 2016 at the Armory.

She also ran 9:44.27 in the 3,000, just about two seconds off her PR of 9:42.24, which she ran at Boston University last month.

Her 5,000 time is No. 10 in NCAA Division 1 among freshmen and No. 1 among Big East freshmen.

This is Aldridge’s second year at Georgetown, but she’s a freshman for indoor track because she didn’t compete indoors last year.

I put together an all-time Georgetown indoor 5,000 list, which really shows just how incredible this program has been over the years.

Aldridge is less than one second per lap from the top-10 on an incredible prestigious list. How many other New Jersey women are on the list? Josette Norris of Tenafly is No. 2, Christi Constantin of Kittatinny Regional is No. 3 and Katie McCafferty of Oak Knoll Academy in Summit and Cathy Feeney of Wayne Valley are on there as well!
