A little catch up on some high school action from this past weekend. The Brooks PR Invitational meet took place in Seattle at the University of Washington indoor track this past Saturday. There were a couple of Montana boys who took part in the elite 2-mile event.
With the win going to Bernie Montoya (Yuma, AZ) in 8:54.63 (which included a 50 second + last lap), Zach Perrin of Kalispell (Flathead HS) was 6th in 9:07.91. Pretty impressive time indeed. He spent most of the first 1,000 meters in the lead pack; but, fell back just a bit when the hammer dropped at about 1.5 miles.
Troy Fraley (Kalispell Glacier) was 12th in 9:16.01. Troy ran a nice, even paced race and got an excellent time as a result.

With just 10 days until the first official day of HS track practice, these two are clearly ready to crank it up in their senior seasons.
See you on the roads, tracks and trails
