Big City improves on his club record, runs 1:54.08, with Witters close behind in 1:54.37
The real story of the night is Jason Myers' 4:01.52 1500m, with New Sam (4:05.04) and Wertz (4:08.62) following.
Witty went for it in the 8, and paid the price late when he tied up with
about 70 to go. Big City reeled him in about 50 meters out and
finished strong for a new club record. "Witty ran a very aggressive race
and notched another solid PR, his second in the last 8 days," noted Coach Jerry "(while) Big City
ran very even pace and looked great in the last 100."
"Jason had the
breakthrough he's been waiting for all season. His workouts have been
great, and this PR was well-earned. Wertz not only ran a 1500 PR, he
ran an 800 PR on route (2:09). Dave also ran PRs this spring at 5k,
10k, and 10 miles, so we'll call that a successful season for him."
Danielle ran a 72 last lap, dominating the alumni mile, without having
the benefit of a warmup.
