Dunbar Coach Romero On Mile Fields Assembled


The Set Goals No Limits Distance Showcase was a smashing success this past Friday at Satellite High School. We have another elite and high-caliber meet for the distance stars of Florida to attend this weekend in the first annual Dunbar Tigers Classic in Fort Myers.

A lot of it has to be a credit to the brainchild behind the idea over wings with other coaches for dinner after the FACA Clinic in Dunbar cross country and distance track coach Ray Romero. He has put in a lot of time and energy recruiting these fields reaching out and communicating with coaches throughout the state over the past few months.

The meet within the high school-sanctioned meet is hosting elite open/unattached races at the mile and 3200-meter distances. Some of the top names already entered in the elite boys and girls mile fields listed below.

Top Boys Mile Entrants

Top Girls Mile Entrants

Sub 5 in the girls' mile certainly could and should happen by several girls, while the boys field will have great depth to push for a sub 4:10 winner among the group and a large number of finishers well under 4:20. There will be a high school pacer in the boys race taking the field just around or above 2 minutes thru the first 800 meters.
