There are always a ton of great performances at this meet.

This year I thought Vincent Mauri might have had the best performance by an Ohioan. 4:09.42 for 1600. I think it was only his second race of the winter and his first 1600 indoors ever. His PR outdoors was 4:20.00 last spring.

He was beat by Nick Foster of Ann Arbor Pioneer who ran a U.S. #1 of 4:07.16, but Vincent was right with him until the very end. Mauri's time is currently U.S. #7 if you include all converted miles.

I did not see this coming. He looked great running nearly even splits.

It was a very impressive race. Both Mauri and Foster ran very well, as did a number of other athletes who finished in the 4:1x range. Entertaining to watch. As were the girls 800 and the girls 60 dash.

The only "bad" thing about it is SPIRE, along with a number of other over 200m tracks in Ohio, is oversized. Those tracks are more like running on an outdoor oval, minus the weather. They get an asterisk(*) beside the marks. Should be an interest year for them, though! Sounds like sub 4:05 in-the-making for outdoors.
