Miles is Devine at All Star Meet

I waited a few days to post this recap, because, quite frankly, it has taken me that long for the results to sink in.  Last Thursday on Senior Day, senior Miles Devine stunned the standing room only crowd by running the fourth fastest time EVER at Penny Packer park!!  His 15:34 is a whopping 1:26 improvement.  To try and put into perspective, he ran faster than Matt Nussbaum, who was a 4 time HS All-American and the owner of a 4:15 mile pr.  His time at Pennypacker is faster than Colin Baker, who blazed a school record 4:09 mile.  Mike Burke, who in 2006 has the 14th fastest time, has a mile pr of 4:17.  Lastly, Miles owns Tim Malloy,  who has the fading 16th fastest time.  Tim  went on to break an 18 yr old record in the 3200 that same spring  at the Camden County track meet while running 9:18. 
Greg Halla ran extremely fast as well.  His 15:35 is 6th all time and Greg is only a junior.  Greg ran a pr by over 30 seconds.   The other Dawgs that raced out of the minds & flats were Sophmore Patrick Shea who cracked the top 30 by running  16:07 for 23rd place all time. Sophmore, John  Greenberg who owns a mile pr that is measured by a sun dial ran 16:15 that is only a 2:39 improvement from last year.  Alex Gigliotti  another super soph, ran a pr as well and his 16:29 would have cracked the top 30 from last year.
Junior Robert Spaeth & Freshman Danny Brennan rounded out the top 25.

Next up is the 15th annual Haddonfield Invitational on Wednesday @ Pennypacker park.

What to look for in the coming weeks?   A Q&A with some current dawgs.  Also a Sectional preview.  Until than.

 See you on the course
