Washington Twp.’s Aaron Kolosowsky wins Gloucester County 800 with … 18-second PR???!!!

Washington Township junior Aaron Kolosowsky won the 800 Thursday night at the Gloucester County Championships in what appears to be the first major 800 he’s ever run.

Kolosowsky ran 1:59.00, edging Clearview senior Cavan Agatone, who was 2nd in 1:59.66. According to MileSplit, the only 800 Kolosowsky had ever raced previousloyz was indoors as a sophomore in a meet at Ursinus College in Collegeville, Pa., where he ran 2:17.07.

It’s possible he ran some fast 800s in dual meets – he probably did since he was seeded in the faster section – but the only result on his MileSplit page from before Thursday night is a 4:29.25 to win the 1,600 this past Saturday at the South Jersey Open.

Kolosowsky ran 4:37.02 and 10:11.01 last spring and 4:35.99 indoors. So he’s made a huge leap in both the 800 and 1,600.

The Minutemen went 1-3 in the race, with senior Colin Keane PR’ing at 2:01.46 for 3rd. And Williamstown freshman Dominic Burgio took 4th in 2:03.59, No. 4 among New Jersey freshmen this year and No. 2 in South Jersey behind Delsea’s Matthew Littlehales, who ran 2:01.01 Saturday at the South Jersey Elite at Delsea.

Littlehales didn’t run the 800 Thursday but ran a PR 9:49.70 for 3rd in the 3,200 behind Peyton Shute’s stat-leading 9:11.11 and Williamstown’s Nick Krol [9:37.71]. Littlehales is the No. 1 freshman in the state in the 1,600 [4:23.69] and No. 4 in the 800 and 3,200.

Washington Township outscored Williamstown 106-78 1/2 to win the team title.
