Justyn Knight Splits 55.2 On Final Lap Of 1500m
We know, of course, that Syracuse distance phenom Justyn Knight is a force on the track. For most of this 1500m, though, Knight was happy to hang around fourth or fifth place — that is, until the last lap, when he turned on the jets and left everyone else comfortably behind.
Christine Bedzinski Breaks Bucknell School Record
Buoyed by a hometown crowd, Christine Bedzinski needed a huge kick in the last 100m to beat Anna Shields of Point Park University. En route to the win, Bedzinski set not just a school record but a facility record as well.
Anna Shields Runs 2:07 & Breaks Point Park School Record
Anna Shields may have lost in the last 100m in the women's 1500m, but she did earn a victory when she absolutely demolished the field in the 800m, breaking the Point Park record.
