Rodolfo Sanchez ran a new personal best time of 4:19.86 in the 1600m to place fifth at the NJSIAA Indoor Meet of Champions on Sunday at the Ocean Breeze Complex in Staten Island, NY.
Sanchez, who had a previous personal best of 4:24.81, used a huge surge with 400m to go to put himself in a strong position and finished fourth in his heat. That time also qualifies him for the New Balance Nationals. The 4x400m relay squad of Luqman Gbadamassi, Sanchez, Miles Hooper and Joey Morrone ran 3:26.61 to finish 13th overall. Morrone used a blistering 49.11 anchor leg to win the heat for the Marauders.
Next up for Prep will be the New Balance Nationals in New York. Prep will be competing on Friday and Saturday.
