Thanks to some major work by Pat Montferrat and Joe Lanzalotto we present all-time individual and team performance lists for Holmdel Park. These lists include some names that every New Jersey cross country enthusiast should know.
The boys all-time individuals see Edward Cheserek as number one with his course record 14:53 from 2011's Shore Coaches Invitational. The only other athlete to go under 15 minutes is Joe Rosa of West Windsor Plainsboro North who threw down a 14:55.6 in 2009. The boys team with the fastest overall time is CBA who averages 15:33.6 thanks to a top five for the ages ranging from 1987 to 2015.
Course record holder Megan Venables of Highland Regional leads the girls list with her 17:27.9 from the NJSIAA Group Championships in 2010. Only 15 girls have gone under the 18 minute barrier, one of them returns this season as Alyssa Aldridge looks to defend her title once again. Team wise for the girls the historically successful program out of Haddonfield has the run of things with their total time of 91:33 and 18:18.6 average. The most recent graduate on their all-star top five is Briana Gess who ranks fifth on the individuals list thanks to her incredible 17:45 freshman year.
