League Champs

Today was the battle for the regular season League Championship Title. Liverpool and C-NS were both 3-0. We knew it was going to be close. Alex ran 3 events today. The first was the 4x800. The race was not close... here he is giving a nice smile on his way by toward the finish. They won handily.


Next he ran the 800 meter. He hung behind the leader, as he likes to do.

Then with 100 meters to go, he took off. As he likes to do.

And he won. Not sure what happened to the other guy, he didn't make the shot.

Then he ran the last event, the 4x400 meter relay.

He ran the fastest 400 he has ever run. (51.4 seconds), and the relay team won. And with that, Liverpool beat C-NS by a score of 72-69. That's about as close as you can get. They were very excited. Next week all the teams in the league get together and run against each other for the other "League Title". Then we're on to Sectionals and then State Quals. The season is flying by... This weekend is the Loucks Games in White Plains. Should be a fun one!

* The local newspaper had a nice article about the meet. Alex was even quoted! Check it out!!
