A couple of big miles today for Montana boys - both at the UW Husky invite on the big indoor oval at the University of Washington.
In the open mile, John Ricardi ran 4:10.77. John's a native of Gardiner and ran at Idaho State. This run came after a nice 14:46.16 at 5K last night.
But, the fireworks really belonged to Lyle Weese. A Dillon native, MSU Alum and current assistant coach for the Bobcats, Lyle came oh so close to being Montana's third sub-4:00 miler. Running in the invitational mile - with several olympic and world championship caliber athletes, Lyle popped a 4:01.61 for 10th place overall. Lyle seems to be approaching his best fitness ever. Impressive effort. Congrats Lyle.
