Outstanding prep performances at Mike Long TrackBy David Yon
The FSU Relays are primarily designed for college and open performances, but two local high school athletes and Chenoweth Fund Athletes of the Year, came up with big performances on Saturday, March 23, at Mike Long track.
Ryan Deak led the way with a Mike Long record in the 1500 meters. The Lincoln sophomore closed with a 55 second or faster lap to run 3:53.82. If you want to compare this time to a mile effort it would probably convert to somewhere between 4:10 and 4:13. It is a personal best for Ryan and a very significant performance improvement for him. On the girls’ side Zita Magloire ran a very impressive 1500 meters as well finishing her effort in 4:46.32. Zita is a senior at Chiles High School.
