Nice double PR for Cedar Creek junior Matthew Winterbottom wins in the 800 and 1,600 at the Atlantic County Championships Friday at Stockton University in Galloway Township.
Winterbottom ran 1:57.68 to win the 800 and 4:25.91 to win the 1,600 with a 62.7 last lap to run away from 2nd-place Ryan Taylor of Egg Harbor, who placed 2nd in 4:29.37.
Winterbottom’s previous PRs were 1:57.85 from last year’s South Jersey Group 2 sectionals at Delsea and 4:33.97 from the South Jersey Open earlier this month, also at Delsea.
In South Jersey Group 2, Winterbottom is No. 4 in the 800 and No. 8 in the 1,600. Among South Jersey juniors, he’s No. 3 in the 800 and No. 4 in the 1,600.
The county titles are the first for Winterbottom, who ran XC in 2020 and 2021 but didn’t compete in outdoor track until last spring and didn’t race indoors.
