Woodbury’s Brady Shute enters all-time S.J. top-50 at 5,000 meters!!!!!

Brady Shute, a senior at Woodbury, posted the 9th-fastest track 5,000 ever by a South Jersey runner at the Garden State Track Club High School Fall Showcase Meet No. 1.

Shute placed seventh in a field of top prep runner from across the Northeast in 15:27.76 in the race at Thomas Edison Park in Edison.

His time is No. 5 in state history by a Group 1 runner and fastest ever by a South Jersey Group 1 runner, about 3 1/2 seconds faster than Haddon Township’s Luke Petela ran in 2014.

The No. 4 time in state history by a Group 1 runner is 15:22.94 by Ben Godish of Highland Park, who finished just in front of Shute.

Shute’s Gloucester County rival, Delsea junior Andrew Littlehales, finished 8th in 15:31.60, and Collingswood senior Josh Forrest and Haddon Township junior Luke Overbeck also broke 15:50, Forrest 11th in 15:44.58 and Overbeck 12th in 15:49.04.

Gavin Sherry of Conrad High in West Hartford, Conn., ran 14:43.15 to win the race, and his teammate, Callum Sherry, was second in 15:12.51.

Shute was third among New Jersey runners, behind Edwin Klanke of St. Peter’s Prep, who was 4th in 15:20.15, and Godish.

Shute was 9th in the state Group XC race as a junior last fall and 4th in the 3,200 at Group 1 indoor states last winter.
