Brady Shute takes 6th at Holmdel Invite, finishes season unbeaten vs. South Jersey competition!!!!!

Woodbury senior Brady Shute mixed it up with some of the top runners in the state Wednesday afternoon and emerged with a monster 16:09 at the Holmdel Invitational.

Shute, who competes for the combined Woodbury-Gateway Co-Op program, placed sixth among New Jersey’s best in the unofficial Meet of Champions at Holmdel County Park.

Shute was the top South Jersey finisher, and his 6th-place finish is highest by a Gloucester County runner in a [official or unofficial] Meet of Champions since Washington Township’s Brian Skelly placed 3rd in the 1999 race. 

Shute did not lost a race to a South Jersey runner this year. He won every previous race he entered this fall, including the Colonial Conference All-Star meet, the Gloucester County Championships and the Group 1 sectionals.

His time makes him the =#4 performer in Gloucester County history over the 5,000-meter course at Holmdel and is fastest in 10 years. 

His previous Holmdel PR was a 16:30 when he placed 2nd in the Varsity F race at last year’s Shore Coaches Championships.

Highland senior Cole Wassell, also running as an at-large individual, ran a Holmdel PR 16:26 and placed 13th overall, and Collingswood senior Josh Forrest ran a Holmdel PR 16:47 and placed 32nd.

This year’s Meet of Champions was cancelled, and the Holmdel Invitational replaced was scheduled in its place as a way for New Jersey’s top teams and individuals to race together on the historic course that has hosted the Meet of Champions for nearly half a century.

Although the meet is not recognized by the NJSIAA and all individuals and teams technically ran for clubs or unattached, the times and performances will go down in the record books – at least our record books – as official, since they did happen during the high school season and in accordance with accepted high school rules.
