The girls of Haverford Township ran a blazing 11:53.19 DMR at New Balance Nationals to earn a fourth place finish.
That is the second fastest team time in PA history. The relay of Camryn McGeehan, Aubrey Leneweaver, Morgan Elliott, and Olivia Cieslak shot themselves up the All Time Leaderboard - after they had run a PA No. 4 All-Time at The Varsity Classic back on February 8th.
McGeehan would start them off with a strong 1200m leg and a 3:46.63 split. She handed off to Leneweaver.
On the 400m leg, Leneweaver split 57.15, which would equate to a PA #10 effort.
The third leg went to Elliott in the 800m and she split a 2:19.59.
It all came down to Cieslak on the anchor leg and she made magic happen. Cieslak got the baton in 9th place and would move up five places during her leg. She proved herself and eventually split 4:50.33.
