Peyton Shute shatters course record at Cherokee Challenge!!!!!

Woodbury’s Peyton Shute shattered the 10-year-old course record on his way to a win in the junior class race Saturday morning at the 26th annual Cherokee Challenge.

Shute ran 9:24 – 9:24.49 exactly – and broke the course record on the 3,200-meter layout of 9:26.0, set in 2012 by Cherokee’s Shawn Wilson. Avery Keith of Westfield took 2nd in 9:42.

Shute ran 4:14.89 and 9:15.76 last spring and was 6th in the Meet of Champions. He was second in the sophomore class race last year in 9:55.

Cherokee High has been good for Shute. Last April, he ran 9:15.76 at Cherokee, the fastest 3,200 by a South Jersey sophomore in 14 years.
