Intermediate North’s Jessica Abbott– last seen winning the Ocean County cross country title— recently won her third consecutive USATF Junior Olympic Cross Country National Championship, which was held at Bourbon Park in Paris, Kentucky, in the 13/14 year-old age group division.

Jessica previously won in 2019 and 2020 in the 11- and 12-year-old age group division. Wet weather, heavy mud, and wind gusts of up to 40 mph couldn’t stop her from winning the 4000-meter event with a time of 15:41.9, 18 seconds better than the second-place finisher. Jessica’s win marks the first time an athlete has won the national title three consecutive years.
