Three Compete in Sizzlin Mile

Tuesday, July 28 2009


Stewart, Swyney, and Atkinson Represent well in Springfield

Justin Stewart (junior), Nic Atkinson (2008), Kyle Swynenburg (2008) compete in the Springfield Road Runners Sizzlin MIle this past Wednesday, July 22nd.

Springfield, Il - 2 alumni and Junior Justin Stewart ran the Sizzlin Mile this past Wednesday, all 3 posting times sub 4:30, and all finishing top 10.

Alumni Nic Atkinson (2008), took 2nd place overall with a time of 4:24.73 - less than a second behind the first place finisher.  Junior Justin Stewart finished 5th with a time of 4:29.53, and alumni Kyle Swynenburg finished 6th with a time of 4:30.93.

All three athletes are currently in the midst of their summer training, running anywhere from 40 to 100 miles a week - so they aren't exactly in prime form for a middle-distance event like the mile.  Nonetheless, personal bests were set for Swynenburg and Stewart, and a near PR for Atkinson.

Full results from the Sizzlin Mile are available here

The cross country season is just around the corner, with practice starting in less than a month.

Alumni is plural, alumnus is single so it should be "alumnus Kyle Synenburg"

Also, there is a margin collapse at the bottom.  If I ever fail to respond to any e-mails or anything of the sorts, check any mental hospitals because I will be there drinking and smoking my brains out because those margin collapses are driving me crazy.

I used my awesome journalism skills and wrote this up in about 3 minutes.

The margin collapse has been taken care of, please don't check into any hospitals my sweet runnion, it was just some extra p tags at the bottom of the page.

P.S. thanks for the info on alumnus vs alumni.... now suck it.
