When OT sophomore Euchari Murray stepped onto the track for Saturday’s competition at the Cal Berkeley all-comers meet, the last thought running through his mind was that his name would soon be mentioned among the favorites to win All OAL honors in the 800m. Graham took the 400m Heat 3 running a new PR in 53:63 (his old mark was 53:75 in last years OAL championships).
“I’m pretty surpised I ran that today considering where I am with my training,” Graham said. We are still going five days a week with some heavy two days. Coach Noah Hinkston said we’ll scale back over the next couple of weeks and work more on pace.We all should start showing major improvement each week.
Teammates Leo Theus (sophomore) and Lamar Oakes (freshman) were 7th (57:17) and 10th (1:01.45), respectively, in the 400m. Freshman David Harris was 10th in the 1500m run 4:52.12. The teams return to action this weekend Jan 30@ The Skyline High All -Comer @ 11:30am
