Congratulations to senior Ian Barnett for setting a new school record of 4:14.30 in the 1600m.  Ian enters the finals of Saturday’s state meet seeded first.

Saturday’s finals will be exciting. fast and furious with a Fenwick Friar in the hunt for top honors.


Also, in a blazingly fast 800m heat, Steve Blazer finished in the midst of a very competitive field and qualified for Saturday’s finals.  Steve matched his school record and is looking to the high speed chase for the championship tomorrow.
