Haddon Heights edges Cinnaminson in hot DMR battle at Woodbury Relays!!!

Haddon Heights and Cinnaminson hooked up in a titanic distance medley battle Saturday at the Woodbury Relays, with Haddon Heights coming out on top and both schools running sub-10:30.

Haddon Heights ran 10:27.31 and Cinnaminson 10:28.95 in the Group 2 race, the fastest times by any South Jersey Group 2 schools since Haddonfield ran 10:10.62 to place 5th at the 2016 Penn Relays.

Both are school records.

It looks like Haddon Heights’ previous school record was actually its 10:37.44 from Armory Nationals last month. Cinnaminson’s previous ‘case!s the school record was a 10:35.3 in 2007.

This is the first time two schools have broken 10:30 in the race at the Woodbury Relays since 2015, when Rancocas Valley [10:20.92], Cherry Hill East [10:23.98] and Eastern [10:29.56] all did it in the Group 4 race. They’re the fastest Group 2 times at Woodbury since 2013, when Pleasantville ran 10:24.40. It’s the first time two schools ran sub-10:30 in Group 2.

Heights and Cinnaminson ran neck-and-neck virtually the entire race.

The 1,200 legs were handled by Colin Patterson for Heights and Tyler Schill for Cinnaminson, with Schill giving Cinnaminson a slight lead with a 3:10.44 and Patterson runing 3:10.72.

Chris Hunter ran a 51.25 split to give Heights the lead while Ryan Malinowski ran 52.78 for the Pirates.

Cinnaminson half-miler Derek Coceano, ran 2:00.71 and Haddon Township’s Matthew Iuvara split 2:01.69 to set up the anchor legs with Heights coming through the final handoff at 6:03.67 and Cinnaminson at 6:03.93.

Heights anchor Jack Bolling got out in 65.81 while Cinnaminson’s Alex Boyko ran his first lap in 65.78. Boyko continued to gain ground on a slower second lap with a 69.12 to Bolling’s 69.42.

Boyko’s 65.59 third lap to Bolling’s 66.29 made the race a dead heat going into the final lap.

Boyko split 64.43, but Bolling closed in 62.12 to secure the 10-meter win. Boyko came back in 2:10.02 and Patterson 2:08.41.

    Haddon Heights was a little mixed up to. It was Patterson on the 1200 and Bolling on the 1600. Thanks for the article!
