Since breaking the indoor school record for 3000m, Grayson Ruffner has made his mark in both the 800 and mile qualifying for the state meet and closing in on two more school records.
Last Sunday (1/14) up at the Kristian Marche Memorial meet in NYC, he won the 800 going away while posting the top time in PA to date with 1:55.45. He topped off the night with a 50.71 4×4 split.
This past Saturday, he headed back up to the Armory (Officials Hall of Fame meet) to post a mile time. Finishing a close 4th over-all, his 4:17.92 again tops the PA season list.
The school records are 1:54.92 800m (Hong Cho 2011) and 4:17.07 mile (Nick Crits 2008). Both are easily within his reach.
Ralph Antonucci has also been stepping up his game, posting the 4th best time in PA in the 1000m with 2:42.01 at the Officials HoF meet.
SPRINTERS STEP UP
At that Marche Invite, the 4×2 squad (Dom Sheppard, Quentin West, Aiden Wescott, Zion Ford) got below the state standard with 1:32.68.
While Ruffner was busy with the mile, Dom Sheppard won the Soph division 200m with a 22.89 PR and finished 4th in the 55m.
