Couple of college updates from past NorCal athletes...

Kevin Griffith formerly of San Ramon Valley HS and now Purdue University ran a 1:49.69 on Saturday at the Big Ten Conference Championships. He finished 11th overall and quailifed for the NCAA East Regional meet in Jacksonville (May 24-26). The 800M race is really deep in the Big Ten with 17 runners running 800M regional qualifying times. It was his first ever sub 1:50 time. He also ran on Purdue's 4x400M relay team which ran 3:12.93.

Sarah Sumpter formerly of Healdsburg HS set two new conference records for UC Davis at the Big West conference meet and was named Big West Athlete of the Year.
