Triton senior Dennis Fortuna ran 16:02 and led a 1-2 South Jersey finish with West Deptford’s Jacob Cobb in Group D at the Shore Coaches Invitational Saturday.
Fortuna won by about 200 meters over Cobb, who was second in 16:48.
Fortuna became Triton’s first Shore Coaches winner ever and broke the Triton Holmdel County Park school record of 16:15, set in 2010 by Robert Rawls at the Meet of Champions.

Cobb’s previous best at Holmdel was a 17:14 at the 2019 Shore Coaches.
The Shore Coaches Invite, states and Meet of Champions were all cancelled last year.
