Delsea’s Andrew Littlehales posts fastest time at Cherokee Challenge!!!

Delea’s Andrew Littlehales led five runners under 10 minutes over 3,200 meters at the Cherokee Challenge and won the Senior Race with the fastest time of the day.

Littlehales ran 9:46 and won by 50 meters over Ryan Banko of Salesianum School in Wilmington, Del.

Banko ran 9:55, Charles Stock of Westfield was third in 9:56 and Camden Catholic’s Billy Clewell was the second South Jersey finisher, fourth also in 9:56. Another Westfield runner, Conor Daly, took fifth in 9:59.

Littlehales’ time is fastest by a South Jersey runner at the Cherokee Challenge in seven years, since Luke Petela of Haddon Township won the Senior Race in 9:28.

In the 25-year history of the Cherokee Challenge, Littlehales is the first Delsea boy to win any of the class races. His 9:46 is the fastest by a Delsea runner at Cherokee since Nick Costello ran 9:38 and placed second to Cherokee’s Shawn Wilson in the Senior Race in 2012.
