The First Annual Brookdale Jersey Blues Invitational meet was a huge success at Brookdale’s new and professionally designed course on the Lincroft campus. Eight total men’s and women’s cross-country teams across Region 19 participated in the 5k races.

In an epic finish to the Invitational, Jersey Blues sophomore, Theodore Purdon, finished 1st overall, setting a new course record with an astonishing time of 16:57. This effort gives the sophomore National Junior College Athletic Association Cross Country #NJCAAXC DII Men’s Runner of the Week honors!

Brookdale finished in 1st place.

The men’s cross country team heads to Ewing, NJ, next to participate in the TCNJ Invitational on Friday, September 23rd, beginning at 5:30pm.
