Haddonfield’s 20-year-old hold on the S.J. girls 4-by-1,600 record! And the all-time top-50!!!

The Haddonfield girls have held the South Jersey four-mile relay record for 20 years now, and nobody has gotten close.

Haddonfield’s Mary Mulholland, Erin O’Donnell, Holly Cosnett and Erin Donohue teamed up to run 20:48.7 in 2000, breaking the South Jerey record of 21:50.9 set in 1995 by Bishop Eustace – by more than a minute!

Haddonfield didn’t break the record at East Coast Relays or Nationals. They actually did it at the Ike Willie Open at Rowan University in Glassboro, and they led two other teams under 21:45. Cherokee ran 21:24.1 [with Lauren Jones, Erin Chiarulli, Melissa Razo and Michelle Bilicki] and Wilson ran 21:43.9 for second and third, and those marks to this day are No. 3 and No. 8 in South Jersey history.

Eustace’s previous South Jersey record was actually set the first weekend of the 1995 season, with Adrianne del Sol, Roxanne Hughes, Kathleen Linck and Ann Clock
at the Camden-Gloucester County Relays on April 8, 1995, at Farnham Park in Camden and winning by more than three minutes!

It’s a tough event to run fast because it’s hard to find good competition, good conditions and four people who run well on the same day.

But this year’s Haddonfield girls team sure seemed like it had a very good chance to break the record after Allison Colflesh [5:03.82], Sarah Naticchia [5:04.24], Payton Weiner [5:06.12] and Lindsay Colflesh [5:19.64 full mile in January but 2:15.31 in March] totaled sub-20:34 indoors.

Their PR’s – 5:03.82 for Allison Colflesh, 4:55.90 for Naticchia, 5:03.53 for Weiner and 5:17.79 (converted from full mile) for Linday Colflesh – add up to 20:12.27, which would be No. 2 in state history (behind Roxbury’s 19:50.87 in 2006). And based on that 2:15.31 and a very early 5:17, you know Lindsay Colflesh would have been right there with the other girls in a big late-season mile.

But all four girls are back next year and hopefully will get a shot at that mark. For now, here’s the all-time list!
