Final 3 races at state XC meet postponed until Tuesday, Haddonfield boys must wait

They got 9 of the 12 races in before wind and thunderstorms finally halted activity Saturday afternoon at Holmdel County Park.

The three remaining races – Parochial A boys and girls and Group 2 boys – will be held on Tuesday.

A severe thunderstorm watch remained in effect until 7 p.m. for Monmouth County, according to the National Weather Service.

That’s a tough break for the Haddonfield boys, who are favored to win Group 2 but will now have to race in the Meet of Champions just four days after a hard effort at the state meet.

The Parochial A girls will race at 2 p.m. Tuesday, Group 2 boys at 2:30 p.m. and Parochial A boys at 3 p.m.

The forecast for Holmdel on Tuesday looks better, with sunny skies and temperatures in the high 40s projected for the afternoon.
