Delsea’s Lillie Widmer runs 2-minute 5K PR to win S.J. Shootout, Clearview takes team title!!!!!

Delsea senior Lillie Widmer was the overall winner with one of the fastest times ever at DREAM Park, and Clearview packed its five scorers in the top seven overall Saturday in the championship race at the South Jersey Shootout in Logan Township.

Widmer covered the 5,000-meter course in 18:34, 11th-fastest in the five years since the DREAM Park course was first used. Abigail Waddington of Clearview also dipped under 19 minutes with an 18:49 for 2nd place.

That 18:34 is a nearly two-minute all-course PR over 5,000 meters for Widmer, whose previous fastest 5K according to her MileSplit database was a 20:32 in a batch meet last September at Cumberland Regional.

Clearview, ranked No. 7 in the state, went 2-3-5-6-7, but for team scoring purposes finished 1-2-4-5-6 for 18 points, topping 2nd-place Moorestown 18-58.

Also scoring for Clearview were senior Abigail Kotran [3rd in 19:08], junior Margaret Wisniewski [5th in 19:54], junior Allison Roes [6th in 19:56] and senior Aubrey Donahue [7th in 20:08].

Highland senior Grace Wassell broke up the Clearview pack in 4th place in 19:19.

Also in the top 10 were Williamstown senior Alexa Fisher [8th in 20:19], Sterling junior Cara Coppolino [9th in 20:50] and Haddon Township junior Ella Sherwin [10th in 20:58].

Moorestown didn’t have a finisher in the top 10 but packed all seven runners between 11th and 27th (and between 8th and 17th in team, scoring), with junior Julia Brock leading the way in 11th overall in 21:06.
