Camden Catholic’s Blly Clewell runs huge 800 PR with sub-2 in Virginia!

Camden Catholic junior Billy Clewell became the second South Jersey half-miler to break two minute on Sunday.

Clewell ran 1:59.98 – more than a five-second PR – to place 10th in the open division of the 800 at the adidas Indoor Nationals in Virginia Beach.

Cumberland Regional junior Jalen Ridgeway ran 1:59.11 on the same track earlier this month.

Clewell’s previous PR was a 2:05.45 at the Bennett Center in February of 2020. 

Is 1:59.98 an indoor school record? Richie Castañeda ran 2:00.18 two years ago at the Bubble and that’s the fastest time I can find.
