SETH CLEVENGER MOVES INTO S.J. ALL-TIME TOP 10 WITH BLAZING 3,200 AT CAMDEN COUNTY MEET!!!!!!!!!!

Haddonfield senior Seth Clevenger ran the 10th-fastest 3,200 in South Jersey history Saturday morning.

Clevenger, racing unpressed, solo’d a 9:03.65 at the Camden County Championships at Haddon Township..

That’s fastest by a South Jersey runner since Haddon Township’s Luke Petela ran 8:58.32 to win the 2015 Meet of Champions in South Plainfield. It’s 2nd-fastest by a South Jersey two-miler in the last 20 years and only 3 ½ seconds off the school record of 9:00.3 – converted from two miles – by legendary Jim Smith 42 years ago.

Clevenger’s previous PR was 9:08.89 at the indoor Meet of Champions in March at the Bubble, and his outdoor PR was a 9:12.99 at Cherokee Night of 3200s in April.

Clevenger was out in 64.33, 2:12.28, 3:20.85 and 4:28.54 and came back in 67.56, 2:16.33, 3:29.07 and 2:35.11.

He won by 150 meters over Triton senior Dennis Fortuna, who ran an outdoor PR of 9:20.93 for second.
