All freshmen yeah (the slowest one is actually a junior).
This is at Mamaroneck Relays, NOT PENN
I split a 4:33 (very poorly though 65 69 72 67) for a 1600 in our 4x1600m relay, which got a new school record today! I personally can definitely do much better though. The 4:33 was a solo effort, so I had no one to run against. Put me in an open race with some fast competition (maybe Kevin ) and I think I could do much better.
I also ran another 1600 and an 800 in other relays to win those, but the times weren’t great (not that it mattered since I was running for place).
4:33 is solid enough without someone pushing you. And I know you’ve got better than that in ya. Congrats on the record. I’d probably have been at Mamaroneck (my alma mater) if I didnt have to work today. Kevin was sick all week so we didnt even know if he was running today or not. He ended up going to Monticello and hit a 9:47 for 2nd in the 3200.
You guys probably meet up in two weeks at Loucks.
I just wanna give shout-outs to this group of guys (other than Mickey, cause he’s always been a high-profile guy). 2 years ago, Brennan, Josh, and Pat were JV guys with no indication of these kinds of times. Brennan still hasn’t broken 2:00 or 4:20, so this was a HUGE leg by him! I’m just really proud of the way these guys stepped up, we graduated our entire DMR last year and they throw down a 10:08 with a whole new set of guys!
Also, big-time props to Northport for putting together a sick race on all 4 legs! I’ve been a huge believer in the talent of this team for a while, and it’s great to see them finally achieve something awesome like this. Congrats guys!
