The winner is Princeton University!!!
After winning the NJ Meet of Champions in the 1,600 with a PR of 4:46.03 and running 10:39.57 in the 3,200 last spring, Loveys came into this cross-country with huge expectations.
She responded by becoming the state's top XC runner as she reeled off seveal jaw-droping performances this fall.
Loveys won the Eastern States Championship race at the Manhattan Invitational in 14:03, the fastest time by a NJ girl on Van Cortlandt Park's 2.5-mile course, and she repeated as Morris County champion when she smashed the Greystone Park course record with a time of 17:07.5, one of the fastest times ever run by a NJ high school girl on a 5K course.
At the state meets, Loveys crushed the course record at Garret Mountain when she won her second straight N.J. Sec. 1 Group 4 title in 17:41, repeated as state Group 4 champion in 17:52, No. 11 all-time at Holmdel Park, and won the Meet of Champions in 17:54.
Then at the Foot Locker Northeast Regional Championships on Nov. 24, Loveys placed fourth in 17:49.4, No. 6 all-time on the NJ list for Van Cortlandt Park's 3.1-mile course. That qualified Loveys for the Foot Locker National Championships for the second straight year. Loveys will on the line for 40th FL Nationals in San Diego on Saturday.
