Mixed Mile Heat 4 - Abbe Goldstein 4:48.03 Jun 2, 2017

One of the premiere races at Friday's Hoka One One John Hay Pennsylvania Distance Festival was the mixed mile. In particular, heat four of the mixed mile produced a great matchup between three milers from very different parts of the state of Pennsylvania.Germantown Academy's Abbe Goldstein, Northern's Marlee Starliper, and North Allegheny's Clara Savchik all met in that fourth section for a great post-states matchup. From the east was Goldstein, the two-time PAISAA 1600 meter champ. From central PA was Starliper, a freshman standout who just took third in the AAA 1600 meters at the PIAA T&F State Championships. Then from the west was Savchik, who nearly broke the PIAA meet record in the AAA 3200 meters last week, while winning the state title.In the end, it was Goldstein that took the top spot out of the three, running a new PR of 4:48.03. Starliper clocked in at 4:51.78, while Savchik ran 4:54.46.More PA Distance Festival LinksComplete ResultsPhotos (By Ethan Rissell)Race VideosInterviewsMixed 1 Mile Run Open =================================================================================== Name Year School Seed Finals H# Points =================================================================================== 1 176 Peach, Lucien M Unattached 4:20.69 4:27.48 6 2 172 Lindgren, Elias M Unattached 4:25.99 4:27.91 6 3 195 Borger, Peter M Malvern Prep 4:24.00 4:28.92 6 4 181 Wedell, Westley M Unattached 4:31.59 4:35.30 5 5 171 Jorgensen, Jakob M Unattached 4:24.99 4:36.33 6 6 212 Pollio-Barbee, Har M Unattached 4:35.00 4:37.74 5 7 192 Stassen, Daniel M Germantown F 4:31.00 4:38.17 5 8 179 Tuntivate, Chanon M Unattached 4:35.00 4:39.40 5 9 178 Ratner, Will M Unattached 4:30.00 4:43.79 5 10 165 Chao, Ben M Unattached 4:45.00 4:43.95 4 11 191 Goldberg, Zach M Germantown F 4:31.00 4:44.13 5 12 198 Narbus, Luke M Penncrest 4:40.69 4:45.54 4 13 186 Goldstein, Abbe W Germantown A 4:44.00 4:48.03 4 14 164 Barry, Austin M Unattached 4:33.00 4:48.94 5 15 208 Pash, Calvin M Warrior Trac 4:49.17 4:49.90 4 16 177 Puleo, Gabe M Unattached 4:29.50 4:50.99 6 17 196 Starliper, Marlee W Northern 4:51.36 4:51.78 4 18 1 Harpstead, Eddie M Unattached 4:33.00 4:51.80 5 19 170 Higley, Aidan M Unattached 4:45.00 4:52.76 4 20 199 Theveny, Patrick M Penncrest 4:42.08 4:53.14 4 21 166 Cooke, Kevin M Unattached 4:55.00 4:53.68 3 22 5 Savchik, Clara W Unattached 4:54.46 4 23 203 Geier, Luke M Warrior Trac 4:54.46 4:57.81 3 24 207 McCann, John M Warrior Trac 4:57.07 4:59.88 3 25 185 Queen, Joseph M Franklin Hig 4:26.00 5:00.13 6 26 209 Walton, Luke M Warrior Trac 5:03.92 5:03.51 3 27 210 Zoretic, Brian M Warrior Trac 4:54.58 5:03.95 3 28 213 Orr, Dylan M Unattached 5:04.45 3 29 193 Ziegler, Henry M Germantown F 5:02.00 5:05.07 3 30 173 McGuire, Ryan M Unattached 5:07.00 5:05.79 2 31 206 Manion, Ian M Warrior Trac 5:08.47 5:06.41 2 32 104 Rhoden, Jermaine M Unattached 5:00.00 5:08.25 3 33 201 Blair, Ashley W Selinsgrove 5:07.00 5:08.29 2 34 187 Goldstein, Isabell W Germantown A 4:59.00 5:08.73 3 35 197 Grable, George M Penncrest 5:07.84 5:08.86 2 36 168 Dietrick, Matthew M Unattached 5:06.00 5:09.45 2 37 10 Callahan, John M WCRC 5:05.00 5:10.95 3 38 134 Hannon, Larry M Unattached 5:11.31 5:13.09 2 39 202 Feola, Dom M Warrior Trac 4:57.43 5:14.53 3 40 190 Addis, Ethan M Germantown F 5:10.00 5:14.85 2 41 7 Harris, Steve M WCRC 5:07.00 5:18.03 2 42 205 Kurek, Steven M Warrior Trac 5:13.01 5:18.61 1 43 184 Jorgensen, Caitlin W Episcopal Ac 5:11.65 5:18.87 2 44 204 Jackson, Roman M Warrior Trac 5:23.21 5:23.55 1 45 189 Kaulbach, Griffin W Germantown F 5:12.00 5:25.41 2 46 4 Mogck, Steve M WCRC 5:09.00 5:26.81 2 47 188 Haddow, Oliver M Germantown A 5:22.00 5:29.86 1 48 20 Ledgett, Julia W Carlisle Track C 5:30.10 5:33.94 1 49 9 Maio, Jimmy M WCRC 5:45.00 5:41.32 1 50 132 Sibole, Allie W Unattached 5:45.00 5:48.21 1 51 108 Jeudy, Jaden M Ballistic Re 5:41.01 6:06.58 1 52 200 Wiseman, Colleen W Princeton HS 5:37.61 6:08.40 1 53 107 Corrielus, Sabine W Ballistic Re 6:48.04 2
