FSU Relays: Saturday HS Highlights, Day of Twofers

The story of Day 2 seemed to be the big winners from Friday coming back to go two-for-two with a second victory Saturday

Matt Mizereck

Even with some notable withdrawls from the race, it was still a great 1600 meter invitational race that saw 14 go under 4:30!  Erick Montoya gave future Gator teammate Matt Mizereck a challenge with Miz winning out 4:16.60 to 4:17.72 the day after their memorable 3200 race yesterday that saw Miz finish in a US#2 9:02.

Pablo Alvarez

After his US #3 110 Hurdles victory yesterday, Pablo completed the hurdles sweep by winning the 300H in 37.36, which is the second fastest in Florida this season.

Stephanie Kurgatt

Stephanie's second victory in two days (800, 1600), along with Jana Stolting's 3200 victory yesterday gave Maclay a full house in the girls individual distance races.  Today Kurgatt held of Elizabeth Tucker (Bishop Kenny), Sarah Davis (Bishop Kenny) and Courtney Filliben (Lourdes) to win with relative ease in 5:03--five seconds ahead of of the challengers.

Sarah Howard

Sarah Howard of Trinity Christiain in Dublin, GA absolutely cleaned up in the throws!  She won the discus in 127-5 yesterday and the shot today in 47-2.  Great job to the Georgian!

Fort Walton Beach Boys Relay

They came back from their state leading sub-8 4x800 victory yesterday to (with two of the same legs) set the new state leading mark in the 4x400.  That time of 3:17.15 also places them as the third fastest finish in the nation so far this year!
