Haddonfield’s Lindsay Colflesh, Allison Colflesh, Payton Weiner and Olivia Stoner ran away with the 3,200-meter relay Saturday at the 52nd annual Meet of Champions.

Haddonfield, with three of their four runners doubling back, ran 9:10.24, winning by 60 meters over Westfield, which placed second in 9:21.35. Cherokee was third in 9:22.73.

Haddonfield is ranked No. 1 in New Jersey at 9:04.72 from a meet at Cherokee in May. That’s No. 2 nationally, a South Jersey record and No. 14 in state history.

It was Haddonfield’s first 4-by-8 win at the Meet of Champions since the event was added in 2010. Ridge had won the last five M-of-C 4-by-8 titles, from 2015 through 2019. The meet was not held last year.

The only previous South Jersey winner was Lenape, which ran 9:18.71 in 2011.

Allison Colflesh led off in 2:18,.35, followed by Weiner (2:19.91), Olivia Stoner (2:16.63) and Lindsay Colflesh {2:16.31).

The Lady Bulldogs will get a chance to race the best 4-by-8 teams in the country fresh at the Outdoor Nationals from June 30 through July 3 at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.
