Pitman graduate Sebastien Reed continued his tremendous indoor season for Monmouth Friday when he won the 3,000 at the Great Dane Classic at Ocean Breeze.
Reed ran an insane PR of 8:21.11 and won by 10 meters over Stony Brook junior Colin Ross, second in 8:22.80.
Reed destroyed the Monmouth freshman 3,000 record of 8:35.22, set in 2013 by Domenick D’Agostino from Wallington High School in Bergen County at the Terrier Classic at Boston University.
Reid’s time is No. 2 in Monmouth history behind school record holder Kyle Mueller, who ran 8:12.79 at the Albany Invitational in 2020.
Reed’s time is also No. 2 in the Metro Atlantic Conference so far this year, behind only Iona sophomore Nick Soldevere, who ran 8:09.57 in December at Boston University.
A week earlier, Reed ran a huge mile PR of 4:12.15, No. 10 in Monmouth history.
His time is equivalent to an 8:58.04 3,200. He had an indoor high school PR of 9:27.16 at the Bubble and an outdoor PR of 9:27.52.
In his only prior 3,000, earlier this month, Reed ran 8:34.60 in a meet at Lehigh’s Rauch Fieldhouse in Bethlehem, Pa.
