With perfect conditions (cool weather, no wind, music playing, amazing competition) Sara McCoy crushed her own 1600m school record at Palatine Distance Night on Saturday with a 5:13.54 beating her previous record by over two seconds. Sara now ranks 8th in Illinois Class 2A in the 1600m.
After Sara and Erin completed their 30 minute cool down run, Sara and her supporting teammates competed in the costume 4 x 400m relay.
Congratulations to Sara on the new record, and thank you to everyone who came out to support on Saturday!
