2013 Brooks PR, Full Results from Brooks Running, notes on meet by Larry Eder

The 2013 Brooks Pr Invitational was the third event put on by Brooks Running to celebrate high school running. The idea was to invite the top ten athletes in events from the 60 meter dash to the two mile, and put them on a very fast track and let them run. 

The event was a huge success from the first year. This was for several reasons: a well-organized event, bringing many of the best high school athletes in the country, and the 307.5 meter over sized indoor track at Dempsey Fieldhouse at the University of Washington.

Meet records were set in both two miles, both 800 meters, the boys 60 meter dash and girls 60 meter hurdles. Cameron Burrell, the son of Leroy Burrell, who held the 100m WR in the nineties, ran the National leader and meet record in the boys 60 meter dash!

In the girls 60 meter dash, Kali Davis-White went by Aaliyah Brown and won the 60 meters in 7.31 to 7.34 for Brown! 

The 60 meter hurdles were no different. Sasha Wallace went by Dior Hall, the national leader, just before the finish. Sasha Wallace ran 8.18, a meet record, with Dior Hall at 8.21! Both girls were flying and expect to see them go much faster! 

In the boys 60 meter hurdles, Aaron Mallet ran 7.80 to take Freddie Crittendon, who ran 7.82. Mallet just grabbed the race, once again, near the finish!

Hannah Meier took the lead early in the 800 meters and never relinquished her position. Using her speed, Meier just hammered the field with her national leading 2:07.45, giving her a margin of two seconds over second place. Hannah had told us that she would like to get her 800 meter faster in 2013 and run a mile under 4:40. Many will recognize Hannah as a winner in Brooks PR mile in the past years.

Tyler Smith used the lead from the front tactics to win the boys 800 meters, where 11 guys ran under 1:56! Tyler hit the 400 meters in 55 seconds and he was off! Running nearly even splits, Tyler ran 1:50.88 for the win! 

In the 400 meters, both the boys and girls races were tight, with the nod going to the girls 400 meters.

The two mile races were won very differently, but they were two of the highlights of the meet. 

Erin Finn takes the lead, photo from Brooks Running

In the girls race, Erin Finn was running her third and final two mile at Brooks PR. The 5,000m high school record holder had finished third in 2011 and 2012. In 2013, Erin Finn left nothing to chance. Hitting the first 400 meters in 73.91, Erin Finn took the lead and built a strong lead. By charging away, Erin made sure that her competitors, lead by Wesley Frazier, could not see her around the long turns on the oversized track at Dempsey Fieldhouse. Finn hit the mile in 4:59, one of eight times that she had been under five minutes.

Erin Finn continued to dominate the race, and built up a lead of 35 meters. By the time Erin Finn hit the finish line, she had six seconds on the field, and set a new Meet Record of 10:08.24. Erin had told RBR before the race that she wanted to run under ten minutes, but most of all, improve on her third place performances. As her fifth race of the year, Erin Finn added to her bucket list: win a Brooks PR title.

Bernie Montoya told RBR the night before the race that he wanted to get under 4 minutes for the mile this year and get under 8:40 for two miles. But his immediate goal was to go sub nine minutes in the two mile. 

Jake Leingang took the pace out controlled, hitting the 800 meters in 2:19 and mile in 4:35. Then, Jake slowly began the grinding pace that had them run a mile in 4:19 for the second mile.

Bernie Montoya moved up from the back of the pack, to just behind Thomson and Leingang. With 600 meters to go, Jacob Thomson went by Montoya and Leingang. Montoya responded and Thomson made one huge move with 200 meters to go. Montoya woke up, started to accelerate, and held his final move until he came off the final turn. Looking up at the large video screen, Bernie Montoya sprinted away from Jacob Thomson, to win and run 8:54.65. Three buys under 8:57!

The afternoon before the Brooks PR event, RBR spoke with Haley Meier. Coming off a series of injuries, Haley wanted to get under 4:40 for the mile and do well in the mile. As the race began, it was quite evident that Haley Meier had one intention: she was going to steal the mile. Amy Eloise-Neal was upfront and controlling the race, but with 200 meters to go, Haley Meier gave Amy the only real challenge that she had in the entire race. Meier went by determined and held off Amy Eloise-Neal until the last fifty meters, when Amy Eloise-Neal showed that she was one miler who wanted the race more than Haley Meier.

The final event of the evening was the boys Brooks PR mile. HItting the halfway point in 2:07, the race picked up as the second half only took 2:01 for the winner. Four runners made attempts to take the race, and in the end, Trevor Gilley won in 4:08.24. Gilley used the mantra of the king of the boards, Eamon Coglan, who noted, if one wanted to win an indoor race, make one, big move. 

The Brooks PR invitational gives many of the top high school athletes a chance to run on a fast indoor track, meet some of their competition and enjoy a weekend away from home. The meet is continuing to grow in stature and interest by the top athletes in the country. In three years, the Brooks PR has become a fixture.
