NORTHERN BURLINGTON FRESHMAN LILIAH GORDON RUNS ALL-TIME BURLCO #2 TWO-MILE, 5TH AT OCEAN BREEZE NATIONALS!!!!!!!!!!

Northern Burlington freshman Liliah Gordon capped her phenomenal indoor season by lowering her South Jersey freshman record, running the No. 2 time in Burlington County history and earning All-America honors Saturday in the two-mile run at Ocean Breeze Nationals.

Gordon placed 5th in the Championship race in 10:49.55, which lowers her own South Jersey freshman record of 10:56.77 over the slightly shorter 3,200 meters from the Meet of Champions last week, where she placed 7th.

Gordon’s time trails only Cherokee’s Megan Lacy [10:31.06] on the all-time Burlington County indoor list. Lacy last week placed 13th in the U.S. 15,000-meter road championships in Jacksonville.

Gordon was out very fast, hitting the half in 2:37.60 and the mile in 5:18.48 – less than seven seconds off her mile PR of 5:11.62 (converted from 1,600 meters). But she ran strong over her second mile, coming back with a 5:31.07.

For performance list purposes, Gordon’s time converts to 10:45.78 for 3,200 meters. That makes her No. 14 in South Jersey history.
