Boys Highlights from the Warsaw Tiger Showcase #2

Like the girls, there were several performances that would shake up the early season leaderboard. Some of the top boys highlights can be found below along with links for additional coverage from the meet.

Kieran Barnewall would run to an easy victory with a time of 8.23 in the 60m hurdles. The Junior would win the event by well over a half second and improve his time of 8.29 that he ran last weekend at the Indiana Runner Indoor Invitational last weekend.

Last season Kieran would run the 300m hurdles as well as become a state finalist for the 110m hurdles. He would place 12th last outdoor season at state in the preliminaries as a sophomore. Currently he ranks second in the state to Evan Williams by one hundredth of a second and is also in the top 100 nationally.

2 Boys Under 4:30 in the 1600m

Liam Lee and Hunter Quadlin would both break the 4:30 barrier with the pair being separated by less than a half second. Lee would have a crazy kick in the final lap of the race where he would split roughly 30 seconds to pass 4 runners and win the race down the final stretch. His time of 4:29.23 is a season best by an impressive 10 seconds as he last raced at the first Midwest High Performance Series in Fort Wayne. 

Hunter Quadlin would also make a decisive move with 300m to go as he would claim the lead and gap the field by a few meters. It was around this time that a collision in the field left a runner down for a moment. Quadlin positioned himself well at the end with no one expecting the speed that Lee would exert with 50m to go in the race. Lee would also improve his PR once again this meet with a 4:29.68.

Nabieu Nearing Sub 7

In the 60m dash Robert Nabieu would win with a time of 7.05 which was a new season best for the South Bend Riley Senior. He would claim the #7 spot on the Indiana leaderboard as he approaches a sub 7 second mark and a new PR. With the Indiana Runner Sprinter showcase only a week away Robert looks to improve on his mark from last year where he ran a 7.04 at the meet.

Last outdoor season he would run to times of 10.87 in the 100m as well as 22.21 in the 200m. Nabieu would also take the last podium position in the long jump last outdoor season with a leap of 22' 1.5" at the IHSAA State Meet.

Field Talents Himes and Randall Win Again

Luke Himes would narrowly miss his nation leading mark this weekend with a throw of 66' 9.25". Although it was not a new PR this effort today would still beat the second best shot put performance nationally. He was aiming for 68-69 feet and although that was not hit this weekend he is still optimistic for the rest of the year.

Jordan Randall was also just off his performance a few weeks ago at Warsaw. This weekend he would clear 6' 8" to take another win. This performance marks the the third time this season where he would clear this height.
