MILESTONE CLUB RECORD IN TEXAS!
Damian was back at it again this weekend.
Rice University in Houston, the venue on this occasion for the clubs newest record and first ever sub 4minute clocking in the 1500m!
The official Mark of 3:59.45 was a 2 second PB for Damian, Breaking the old record of 4:00.40 Set by Jamie Fallon back in 2014, as he finished a battling 4th in his Heat 2, as part of a 3 man top 5 for McNeese, lead home with a winning performance from Welsh Senior Nathan Jones, followed closely by local homegrown talent, Fisher Hamilton in 3rd after an impressive sprinting finish over the last 200m.
This was the second meet of the outdoor season for Damian and the Cowboy’s Distance Squad having opened their season at Home in Lake Charles two weeks previously.
Damian took on the 3000m at that meet, along with teammates Nathan Jones and Enrique Soto, finishing in an outdoor Best of 8:44.67 only marginally slower than the time he recorded indoors a few weeks earlier. The switch from indoor racing and Air Conditioning to the Heat and Humidity of the Deep South, showing evident for all 3 men, even as they went 1-2-3.
The Team Travels to Florida next week for the renowned Florida Relays Meet as they begin to shape up for the business end of the season, with the Conference Championships only a mere 4 weeks away!
