Haddonfield’s Seth Clevenger, George Andrus go 1-3 in Meet of Champions 3,200!!!!!!!!

Haddonfield teammates Seth Clevenger and George Andrus finished 1-3 in the 3,200 Saturday at the Meet of Champions.

Clevenger, a senior, won the race in 9:08.92 and Andrus, a junior, was 3rd in 9:16.XX.
Clevenger becomes Haddonfield’s first Meet of Champions winner in 16 years.

The Iowa State-bound Clevenger is the first Haddonfield distance runner to win a Meet of Champions title since Dan Gough won the 1,600 in 4:16.4 in 1987. Other Haddonfield Meet of Champions winners are pole vaulter Mark Murphy in 1984 and 1985 and Dan Purves in 2006.

Clevenger’s PR is 9:03.65 from the Camden County Championships at Haddon Township in May, which is No. 10 in South Jersey history. Andrus’s PR is 9:08.09 from the indoor Meet of Champions at the Bubble in March.

The Meet of Champions title capped a phenomenal season for Clevenger, who ran five 3,200s and never ran slower than 9:12.99. He didn’t run the 1,600 Saturday, but he never ran slower than 4:13.11 this year. His PR of 4:09.34 from the Haddonfield Invitational is No. 6 in South Jersey history.

His only loss at either 1,600 or 3,200 meters came to Andrus in the Cherokee Night of 3200s on April 14, when Andrus ran 9:12.32 and Clevenger 9:12.99.

Clevenger is the only runner in South Jersey history to run sub-4:10 and sub-9:10.

    Rueben, I think you are looking at State results not MOC. Mile Split results have them finish 1st and 3rd.
