GRC To Race at Princeton (again)

Sean Barrett will return to Princeton tonight to race the 5,000m at the Larry Ellis Invitational.

"Sean did not run well at Princeton 2 weeks ago, and he's on a misson of redemption," said Coach Jerry Alexander. "His workouts have been superb and he's ready to pop a big race, and build his confidence before the 10k at Penn Relays next week."

Ryan Witters is entered in the metric mile, which will be held on Saturday.

"Witty is rounding into shape nicely. The level of competition should be perfect for him, and he's got a great shot at lowering his club record, which will be a great springboard for him for the 5k at Penn Relays."

Additionally, Susan Hendrick and Meghan Lockett will be racing the 3,000m. Coach Alexander was equally optimistic about their chances.

"Susan is using her misadventure at the Loyola meet last week as motivation to fuel a major breakthrough on Saturday.  As long as she doesn't get wanged by a pole vault standard, she's got a great shot at the club record."

Meghan has had a couple of aches and pains that have hindered her so far this spring, but she's healthy now and is on the cusp of a major PR.
