Luke Overbeck delivers Haddon Twp.’s 6th sectional XC title in 10 years!!!

Junior Luke Overbeck became Haddon Township’s sixth sectional XC champion in the last 10 years Saturday when he won the South Jersey Group 1 title.

Overbeck ran 16:34 through the puddles at DREAM Park in Logan Township and won by 175 meters over senior Zachary Williams of Audubon, who led the Green Wave to the team title.

Overbeck joins Tim Kenna [2011], Trey Thatcher [2012], Luke Petela [2013 and 2014] and Owen Long [2015] as sectional XC champ from Haddon Township.

Teammates Matt Conaway, a senior, and Max Tomashek, a junior, also placed in the top 10 for the Hawks, Conaway in 3rd in 17:19 and Tomashek in 6th in 17:43. Haddon Township took second in the team battle behind Audubon.

Overbeck finished either first or second in every race this year, winning five times and finishing second to Brady Shute of Gateway-Woodbury Co-Op twice.

Overbeck placed 5th at sectionals last year an 12th at states, helping the Hawks win team titles in both events.
