Christmas and Easter breaks are a challenge during their prospective seasons, and this was no different. For our first big indoor invitational, nine ‘starters’ were missing from the line up for reasons ranging from illness, family vacations, missing paperwork, or suspension and/or discipline. This gave opportunities to others.
PR’s were more common than placings, no better illustrated by Justin Cooper‘s shot put performance. Managing only 13th place, his 39′ 9.5″ tacked on more than four feet to his previous best of 35′ 7″ from last spring’s Trojan Classic.
Ethan Dolberry-Wescott continued to whittle down his 60HH time, as he ‘straddled the sticks’ (stole that from an old Track and Field News!) with a PR 8.79 in the pre-lims. He came back in 8.95 for 6th.
Other PR’s : Ben Hoyer mile 4:53.81, Jon Porgorzelski pole vault 10-0, Adit Lala 800 2:19.29
