This isn't her first county championship either, she won the 3200 meter event two straight years in 2015 and 2016 and plans on returning focus to that distance as the season moves along.After missing last year's state season due to illness she has her eyes set on competing well at the NJSIAA level. Before she had to bow out early in 2016 she had an undefeated season going with three wins in the 3200 meter and one in the 1600 meter. Her last indoor victory came at Sectionals where she ran an 11:11.61. Hayes was fifth at the 2016 spring Meet of Champions in the 3200 meter with a 10:37.72 and finished sixth at the Meet of Champions this past cross country season. Top Six Finishers - Full Results GIRLS 1,600 METER RUN FINALSPLACEATHLETETEAMRESULTWINDH#1Niamh Hayes12Howell HS5:04.1412Madison Brand11Middletown South HS5:09.0313Colleen Megerle10Colts Neck HS5:09.6114Amanda Stone10Monmouth Reg.
