Watch the NJSIAA Meet of Champions LIVE on MileSplit
Pingry is competing at the NJSIAA Non-Public A South Jersey Sectional Championships today and tomorrow at Donovan Catholic in Toms River, but Vanasse won't be running.
That means Vanasse can't compete at the State Non-Public A Championships next week or the Meet of Champions next month. Qualifying for those meets is done at the sectional championships.
Vanasse, a junior, has built a remarkable resume at Pingry.
She won the 3,200m at the 2018 Indoor Meet of Champions, has won two state XC titles, was a Foot Locker National XC qualifier this past fall, ran a PR of 10:32.77 when she placed 13th in the two-mile at the New Balance Indoor Nationals this past March, and last spring she won the 1,600 at the State Non-Public A Championships and was third in the 1,600 at the Meet of Champions.
