Stanovsek Runs Big 800m PR On Final Day In Raleigh
RALEIGH, N.C. - Two days after running the fourth-fastest 1,500-meter time in school history, senior Mick Stanovsek doubled back today and set a big PR over 800-meters, wrapping up a great outdoor opener for the All-American and highlighting the final day of the Raleigh Relays for the Huskies.
The 800-meters was the last event to feature any Huskies today in North Carolina, with five Dawgs all doubling back from racing previously this weekend. The three women racing the 800-meters had less than 24 hours since they ran 1,500-meters on Friday.
Stanovsek took second overall in the 800-meters today in a time of 1:48.16. That was a PR of nearly seven-tenths of a second, and moves him into the Husky outdoor top-10 list at No. 8. Redshirt freshman Daniel Maton also ran the 800m today, coming across in 1:51.87.
On the women's side, Marlena Preigh, Katie Rainsberger, and Sophie O'Sullivan all ran 2:09 times. Preigh went 2:09.12, Rainsberger clocked a 2:09.19, and O'Sullivan ran 2:09.88.
Next week will see the Huskies head down to Stanford for the Stanford Invitational on Friday and Saturday, Apr. 2-3.
