Yesterday was the big dual meet between Baldwinsville and Liverpool. They are big rivals. During Cross Country this past fall, Baldwinsville was less than sportsmanlike... and they also beat Liverpool.
Yesterday was payback time. Alex ran three races, the best of the day by far was the 800 meter. These 2 guys in front of him from B'ville are really good. One of them came in 2nd in States in Indoor, in the 1000 meter. Alex hung back for the first lap. The photo above is with about 200 meters to go.
And with 100 meters til the finish, he once again poured it on. He whipped past the first guy.
Then got the second guy with about 25 meters to go.
And had a nice finish. He ran it in 1:58, his 2nd best time of the year. And a great time for a dual meet. Liverpool ended up winning the meet overall, 71 to 63. (I think that was the score.) Liverpool is undefeated in their league. Next week they take on CNS, who is also undefeated. It should be a great match-up! Tomorrow he's heading to New Hartford for a big invitational. I'm hoping it's warmer and shorter than last Friday's all-night meet!
