Toronto West flexed its muscles around the US and at York U this weekend.
First of all, I will deal with the University athletes. Best run of the weekend was Alex Lucki with a great 3k and new club record of 9:28 at Iowa State. Mikaela Lucki followed up with a big PR in the mile with a 4:50 mile (4:30 1500) Finally, Peter M had a big PR in Boston running 8:38 for his 3k. Great double for Jake Carroll, who had a great weekend at the university meet at Spire- 2:28 1k PR! and 4:14 mile.
At York, a large group of athletes competed at AOs on both Saturday and Sunday with all running personnel or seasonal best times. Great runs by Ivan (4:05) and Hamza another PR in 3k in 9:09.
A small group travelled to Geneva Ohio for the Spire Scholastic Showcase. Highlight of the trip was Sophia Lucki in the 1600 (the US high school distance) running 5:03. She passed 1500 in 4:43- a new PR.
Isabel Raymond ran a perfect race to keep moving up in her section and finished in 5:14, passing 1500 in 4:54-another new personal record.
We had a great experience in Ohio and are determined to go back next year and win the girls’ 4×800!
