GET GET UR HOLMDEL PARK ON!!!!!
GET UR BOWL ON!!!
GET UR EXIT 114 ON!!!
For the longest time I thought I wouldn't get the chance to type that this season!!!
But thanks to the great efforts by CBA coach Sean McCafferrty, a loaded, big-time meet will actually go down today at Holmdel today at the Colt Invitationall!!!
Are you as jacked as I am????
Don't answer that! Of course you are or you wouldn't still be reading!!!
It feels like Christmas Day has come early!!!!
I just rolled into Holmdel and it feels so good!!!
Everything just feels so right when I am here. There is just not a better place to be!!
I had forgotten that feeling you get when you're on the way to Holmdel. You know what I mean!!! That feeling that people that don't know running can't possibly ever understand. The adrenaline rush that comes over you as you chug down the Parkway, the anticipation that grows and grows as you pass each exit.
And of course, having some sweet dance music jams blasting with the windows down on the ride is a must, at least for me!
I could go on and on about all the history and the great memories this place has provide, but that's for another day. Stay tuned!!!
Good luck, everyone!!!
GET UR HOLMDEL PR'S ON!!!
FYI-No spectators are allowed, but have no fear, the NJ MileSplit crew is here to give you the latest updates as many of the top teams in the state will square off.
The girls race is at 4 p.m. and the boys to follow. Just varsity.
Check out these stacked fields!
In a boys race that will likely decide who finishes No. 1 in the state, CBA will put its No. 1 state rankings on the line against No. 2 Ridge, No. 3 St. Peter's Prep, No. 6 Colts Neck, No. 8 Haddonfield, and No. 12 South Brunswick.
This will be the second meeting of the season between CBA and Ridge. CBA defeated Ridge, 70-89, at the Cougar Invitational at Bucks Mill on Oct. 10.
Individually, some of the state's best will square off as Matt Bogdan of Colts Neck, Jackson Barna of Ridge, Edwin Klanke of St. Peter's Prep, Chris DeSousa of CBA, Vidhur Polam of South Brunswick, and Nathan Armstrong of Pompton Lakes, should provide plenty of firepower up front. Bogdan edged Barna, 15:24 to 15:25, at the Cougar Invite.
The girls race is just as loaded with No. 2 Haddonfield, No. 3 Middletown South, No. 8 Colts Neck, No. 11 Metuchen, No. 19 Ridge, and Trinity Hall, the State Non-Public B runner-up last year, set to battle it out. This should be another epic clash between Haddonfield and Middletown South.
Haddonfield defeated Middletown South on a sixth-runner tiebreaker to win the team title at the Cougar Invite after both teams finished with 54 points. Individually, Lilly Shapiro of Colts Neck, who won at the Cougar Invite in 18:07, No. 2 in Bucks Mill course history, is favored to win.
4:41 pm GET UR JACKSON BARNA AND CBA ON!!! Holmdel PR of 15:50 FOR BARNA! Vidhur Polam 2nd in 15:59. Barna's previous PR at Holmdel was 15:55 when he was 7th at the M of C as a soph. last year.
