Xavier Track earned a good number of PRs today/tonight at the Sun Angel Classic at ASU. In addition, a few Xavier girls qualified for Saturday's finals, where a select number of High School finals are part of the Collegiate portion of the Sun Angel Classic.
Xavier Athletes qualifying for Saturday's finals:
The 4x800 team of Riley Ryan, Kelly Scott, Maria Benitez, and Tatum Goforth (3 frosh and a Soph) qualifed 4th out of the 12 teams who made the finals.
Johnnie Mitchell qualified 12th of the 12 finalists in the 800m with a PR of 2:25.67. Interesting note: her 12th place qualifying time was less than 2 seconds behind the 4th place qualifier. That is going to be a great final on Saturday.
Brooke Bream qualified 14th out of the 16 finalists, running her first sub 5:30 of the season. Her 5:28.62 earns her a provisional state qualifying mark.
