Falcon wins natonal title
« on: May 28, 2019, 09:03:50 am »
Congratulations to Esther Seeland, FY Falcon defender from State College, PA. She won the national title at 800 meters this weekend in a brilliant 2:05. You can watch the whole race, starting at about 2:36:30, here:

Last year, Esther won the HS girls 800 in the state meet. She declined multiple D1 track scholarships, including (so I am told) at least one full ride, in order to play soccer and run at Messiah. This year and last year, PA is perhaps the top state nationally for girls from 800 to XC.

(At about 51 minutes, you can also watch Falcon SR Ben Schott come from behind and win the steeplechase decisively.)
