Plainfield East RecapFriday, March 1 2019 - Plainfield East Open Meet
Its is such a privileged to live in an area that contains so many great track and field programs. We can go to a low key Thursday night open meet and compete against the defending team state champions. Getting to compete against some of the best programs in the state forces the team to rise to the level of competition. And the team certainly did that at Plainfield East.
The results of the night was 21 new PRs, and one new indoor school record!
The highlight of the night was Jonathan Goetsch running a 2 second PR to break his own school record running 9:49 for 2 miles. Great job Jon!
The throws crew continues their steady improvement. Coach Capshaw has the guys all headed in the right direction. Six different throwers PRd at this meet:
Cam Henderson (40'7)
Mitch Hunter (28'8)
Jack LaLonde (30'9)
Brodie McIntyre (36'7)
Gavin Schryer (30'5)
Nick Syron (33'11)
The young sprint crew continues to improve, Thursday was no different. Christopher Miller led the way with 2 PRs (7.7 in the 55, 66.9 in the 400). Aaron Larkins Jr. ran a PR in the 200 (26.2), and Anthony Nieves ran a PR in the 200 (25.6).
The distance crew carried momentum from a great last week of work to crank out a huge number of PRs. Goetsch in the 3200 setting that school record. Luke Edmondson got it rolling for the distance guys with a PR in the 800 (2:45). The real PR machine took over during the 1600 when 11 guys ran PRs.
