A Private 1600- This was an epic race as anticipation had built after Emma Grace Hurley's stunning 10:38 3200 and Anna Marion Block being well rested from having just 1 800 race would be an advantage. it was apparent it was a 2 woman race from the get go as hurley and Block danced for 2.5 laps. But, Block was fresher with more footspeed as she began to gap a tired Hurley. Block began to push hard and with crowd sensing someting special happening urged her down the stretch to a new A State record in 4:51.68. Hurley continued to push with a solid 4:57 finish. Landmark ate up 11 points as Nicole Fegans finished 3rd in 5:06, Kathryn Foreman warriored on to 4th in 5:12. Sophia West place 1 spot better than her 3200 grabbing 6th in 5:13 just holding off Shannon Fair of Aquinas at 5:14. Well done small school Ladies! (Full Video coming Sunday or Monday)
