Diving For State Championship 800m Title


Ryan Motondo made the decision to focus on the 800m at regionals and the state championship, which, for a runner who had focused on the longer-distances throughout his career, was quite the jump. In similar fashion to his NCHSAA 3A Mideast Regional victory, he used a roaring last 150m to slip into the lead and secure the win. He needed every inch of real estate to take down CATA's Manny Williams.
