The NJSIAA Group 3 Championship race came down to a crazy kick at the finish on Saturday, November 16. Two of the best in New Jersey, Mendham High School's (NJ) Jack Jennings and Allentown High School's (NJ) Liam Murphy raced head to head on the historic Holmdel Park course.
The two were next to each other coming out of the woods, but as they got closer to the finish Jennings started to pull away from Murphy. Jennings would come out on top running 15:19.00 while Murphy would finish just behind him at 15:21.00. Murphy was undefeated heading into the race and ranked US No. 10 on the MileSplit50 Boys Individual Rankings while Jennings was a bubble list athlete.
