Now with video: Luff outkicked by timid Webb at Mason

BAN: Luff leads at mile, 4:39 Luff -4:36 split for second mile Webb runs a modest 14:15 sitting on "our own" Sam Luff for two miles. Luff couldn't match Webb's 4:23 last 1600 and rans 14:22.51 with a 4:34 third mile., just holding off a BU runner  DEVELOPING...


Coach Jerry Alexander liked what he saw, at least in terms of how Sam raced.
"Sam led right form the gun, and Webb was happy to sit back and let Sam do the work.  When Webb made his move with 4 laps to go, it was decisive, and Sam could not answer.  But Sam ran an excellent last mile, and finished in 1:39 for the final 600.  If Sam had some help with the pacing, he certainly could have run a PR.  As it was, he ran an excellent race that will leave him confident and ready to roll at Penn."

Watch Sam's race starting at 4:10: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NMT8eaxckHY&feature=player_embedded

"Thanks to Sam, Alan had someone to follow" - J. Webb. Great work Sam, that's really awesome!

For a guy with a 13:10 pr, he sure ran like a coward.

Nice job Sam-way to run tough. I loved seeing you go straight to the lead. All guts. There needs to be more of that in championship racing.
