Two Meets in Three Days: A RecapSunday, March 10 2019 - York Indoor Meet
This week brought with it a great opportunity to compete. Two meets in 3 days. A Thursday night meet at Wheaton Warrenville South and then a Saturday meet at York High School. Both meets had some great performances. Both meets allowed everyone to compete. The team is really starting to come around as we approach the end of the indoor season. Next weeks brings the Fr/So City Championship on Tuesday and then Saturday the SPC Indoor Conference at Lewis.
Here are some of the many highlights from WWS:
Cam Henderson got things rolling with a victory and a bomb of a toss of the shot, 42'
Justyn Wheeler, Jaylon Coyler, Jack LaLonde, Gavin Shryer, Nick Syron, and Colin Walzer all had big PRs. What a great performance from the throws crew. Every day those guys are working hard getting strong, and more explosive.
The young sprint continues to shine. Christopher Miller was the only double PR on the day (200, and long jump). Connor O'Leary, Aaron Larkins Jr. and Anthony Nieves all PR'd on the day between the 200, 4x200 and 4x400.
Nick Barner had his best meet of the year thus far, he is starting to look like the athlete we saw at the end of last season.
The distance race of the night was Daniel Hale who ran 5:06 in an epic negative split to show his chops as a miler.
The York Open meet was a huge success for the team. We ran our best two relays of the year (4x200, and 4x400). We also had 30 PRs!
Anthony Nieves had two PRs on both successful sprint relays. Aaron Larkins Jr PRd twice as well in the 4x200 and 200. The rest of the 4x400 crew had two PRs as well with Nick Barner and Jordan Facio also running PRs.
The distance crew put an incredible performance together 19 of 31 distance races resulted in PRs.
The 800 saw 3 heat victories. Christopher Miller won his first ever 800. Daniel Hale continued his impressive week with a heat win and a PR in the 800, and Richard Todd also negative split to win his heat and run a new PR in the 800.
