Spartan Track and Field performed admirably at the Section meet at Macalester College on Thursday, May 31 and Saturday, June 2. More than two-thirds of the team set personal best marks at the meet, despite competing in less than ideal conditions throughout the weekend.
On the boys side, the team had a championship showing. Tommy Allen '20 won the section championship in the 800m in the most exciting race of the weekend and qualified for the state meet with his lifetime best time of 1:59.3. The boys 4x400 relay team (Tommy Allen 20, Jak Kinsella '18, Koji Gutzmann '19, and Robin Bartlett '18) ended the meet by winning the event in impressive fashion. The boys ran their best race of the year at championship time and will compete at the state meet next week at Hamline University.
The girls also put in great events. Hurdler Rashmi Raveendran '21 had a strong finish to her season, earning medals in both the 300 hurdles and the 4x400 relay along with Sara Browne '21, Julia Baron '21, and Emma Hills '18. Emma also ended her wonderful SPA running career with a 4th place finish in the 400m along with a season best time.
Congratulations to all our Spartan runners, and best of luck at State!
