SPC Indoor RecapSunday, March 17 2019 - SPC Indoor Championship
A rising tide lifts all ships, and we get the benefit of getting to compete in one of the best conferences in the state. Ten excellent track programs fill Lewis's field house and produce an excellent day of track and field. Our day resulted in 33 PRs.
The highlight of the meet was Jonathan Goetsch and his new school record and SPC Championship run in the 3200 meters. Jon had a great mindset going in, don't worry about time just go out and compete, and that is exactly what Jon did. A group of about 5 came through the mile together when Jon asserted himself to the front, only Oswego East had an athlete join Jon, they battled the rest of the way with Jon closing in 66 seconds to runaway with the win.
Justyn Wheeler had a big time PR to crack into finals of varsity shot put.
The other distance races saw some breakout races as well. Mike Forbear became our 10th sub 5 miler, running 4:57! Ryan Bonomo closed very fast to run 4:53. Paul DeAvila ran a PR in the 800 and 4x400. Tommy Adelmann and Aaron Wyckoff ran stride for stride in the 3200 to both run PRs. Austin Emrath ran a PR in the 3200. Jordan Facio ran a PR split in both the 4x400 and 4x800.
The sprinters ran their way to some PRs as well. Tyler Slabanek returned from injury to PR in the 400, Anthony Nieves ran PRs in both the 4x200 and 4x400. Nicholas Barner ran a PR split in the 4x200. Aaron Larkins Jr ran a PR in the 400. And Hunter Fuss ran a PR leg in the 4x200.
With a meet with so many strong teams, Coach Lundin has the great idea of having an open 55, 1600 and shot put, which means almost every athlete gets a chance to compete. I love the open 1600 it results in some great races and Saturday was no exception. Alix Awalt broke 6 for the first time! Kyle Schick and Patrick McCormick have become a dynamic racing duo both running PRs. Mason Magmeneas made his debut running 5:10. Dean Eubanks bounced back after a rough ran last week to run within 1 second of his lifetime PR. Other PRs in the open mile:
The open shot put resulted in some PRs as well:
