Reed, a Monmouth freshman, ran 8:10.69 and placed 10th in the 100th annual IC4A Championships, which brings together runners from Division 1 schools across the Northeast.
He broke the Monmouth record of 8:12.79 set by Kyle Mueller at the Albany Winter Classic at Ocean Breeze in 2020. Reed came in with a PR of 8:21.11 from a meet in late January at Ocean Breeze and was the No. 20 seed in the race.
Reed has made quite an immediate impact on the Monmouth record book. He’s No. 2 in school history in the 5,000 at 14:22.05 and No. 7 in the 10,000 with 31:05.43 in addition to his school record in the 3,000.
Reid ran his 1000s in 2:44.36, 2:43.28 and 2:43.06. Reid’s high school 3,200 PR was 9:27.16 at the Bubble in January of 2020. His pace Sunday was the equivalent of running 8:43 for a high school 3,200.
Reid’s 8:10.69 is fastest this winter by a South Jersey high school graduate.
