Three Compete in Sizzlin MileTuesday, July 28 2009
Stewart, Swyney, and Atkinson Represent well in SpringfieldJustin 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.
