Burlington Twp. grad Sean Burtnett of TCNJ wins NJAC 800 title in wild finish!!!!!!

Burlington Township grad Sean Burtnett of The College of New Jersey, who never ran indoor track in high school, edged Washington Township grad Jake Kolodziej of Rowan to win his first NJAC title Monday at Ocean Breeze.


Burtnett, a TCNJ junior, ran 1:56.11, leading four finishers within 30-100ths of a second across the line. Kolodziej was 2nd in 1:56.17, TCNJ freshman Thomas Blach was 3rd in 1:56.29 and TCNJ senior Roman Rychkov from Old Bridge placed 4th in 1:56.41.

Burnett, a 1:58 half-miler outdoors for the Falcons, is enjoying a breakthrough season for the Lions. He PR’d at 1:53.37 last week in Boston, No. 4 in school history and only two seconds off the school record of 1:51.32, set in 2006 by Notre Dame High graduate Jeff Zodda in Boston.
