Later on in the day athletes ran amazing 1500m races. Nicholas Mejia made a smooth dash in the boy’s (11-12 age division) to cross in 4:46.27. Amelia Kang set the pace for the race early, as a sixth way fight for second place followed in the girl’s 11-12 age division.

 

One of the most decorated athletes of the weekend, Clare Martin took home her third gold medal on Sunday in the girl’s 17-18 1500m, with a time of 4:31.43.

Erick Steward had a superior run to bring home a title in 49.93, after he dashed out of the blocks taking control of the race. Steward was DQ at the start of the 400m (13-14) race, following a second DQ which allowed him to compete.

 

Closing out the afternoon was the 110m, 100m, and 80m hurdles followed by the 4x400 relay finals. Anjoli Mathew improved her former seed time in the girl’s (13-14) 100m hurdles in 14.80.
