Haddon Twp.’s Luke Overbeck has fastest time of the day as Colonial Conference opens season with several dual meets!!!!!

We’re not going to write about every dual meet this year, but I think we’re all so happy to have cross country back today that I want to celebrate the start of the season as much as possible!

There was a series of Colonial Conference dual meets today at Pennypacker Park in Haddonfield, and Haddon Township junior Luke Overbeck ran 16:24, fastest time of all the meets.

Six Colonial Conference schools raced Thursday, and Haddon Township went 1-4-5-7-9 to edge West Deptford, 26-31. Key man for Haddon Township was 5th runner Grant Overbrook, a freshman competing in his first high school race.

Luke Overbeck, 12th in the state Group 1 meet, led West Deptford’s Zach Rhoda and Jacob Cobb, who finished 2nd and 3rd and also broke 17 minutes.
