Distance Preview

The 3200m state record holder.. will not be running the 3200m but defending her title in the 1600m. Abby Loveys of Randolph has been the elite of the elite for New Jersey this entire year in the distance events, from cross country in the fall, through winter, and now the end of spring. She's the defending outdoor 1600m champ and at Groups she ran a 4:47.96 just off her PR of 4:46.03 which won her MOCs last spring. Keep an eye on that meet record of 4:41.61 by Josette Norris in 2013. 

The 1600m race won't be easy though, Chloe Gonzalez of North Hunterdon went 4:48.33 last week at Groups and was with Loveys to the line. She's been right there in the past and it is possible we haven't seen her ceiling this spring as of yet.  

Now to the 3200m, which even without state record holder Loveys, is one of the best events of the meet. Two-time defending Champ Alexa Westley returns as the third seed at 10:29.33, Julia Trethaway, the indoor Meet of Champions winner, has had a great year of running and looks to be the top seed without Loveys racing. Trethaway and Westley have met two times already this season head to head with Trethaway taking both meetings by around four to five seconds each time. 

If Loveys and Trethaway take the 1600m and 3200m titles it would be a Morris County sweep of those events.

We have another returning champ in the 800m, Victoria Vanriele hasn't lost an NJSIAA Meet of Champs 800m during her high school career with five straight titles between indoor or out. She's the fourth fastest in meet history with her 2:06.68 from last year, let's see how low she can go this time round. She'll have the likes of Leena Morant and Kate McAndrew to push her early on.
