Masterson Runs Fifth Fastest 800m in OSU History
April 19, 2009
PORTLAND, Ore. – Freshman Casey Masterson ran the fifth fastest 800-meters time in Oregon State history on Saturday at the Lewis & Clark Invitational on Eldon Fix Track.
Masterson (Eugene, Ore.) finished second in the eight-runner first heat running the 800-meters in 2:11.99, a four second personal best.
Sophomore Jennifer Macias (Hermiston, Ore.) led the way in the 1,500-meters for the Beavers with the fourth fastest time in a 42-runner field finishing in 4:44.07.
The Beaver had 15 runners participate in the invitational. Each runner was participating one distance lower than their usual event making it a “training” competition in preparation for the larger upcoming meets. Many of the runners hadn’t participated in their respective events since high school.
Oregon State track is back in action on Friday-Saturday, April 24-25, for the Oregon Relays in Eugene, Ore.
