Local duo recording fast times on the track.

image 2After two smaller tune-up meets, training partners senior Liam Gair of Villanova Prep and senior Ellis Delvecchio of Thacher headed to the Redondo Nike Track Festival, considered the best early-season meet in Southern California, and the two turned in some stellar results.

Gair finished second in the 400-meter dash with a personal best of 48.27, just a tenth of a second from the winner. Delvecchio also performed well, winning the 800-meter run with a personal best time of 1:54.06.
Both Gair and Delvecchio were ranked third in their respective events after the meet, and their early season marks are impressive. With plenty of races to go this spring, the duo appear to be on track for strong seasons.
