HS Boys Meet of Champions Mile - Spencer Smucker 4:18.66

West Chester Henderson's Spencer Smucker will certainly be one to watch this upcoming fall on the cross country course. But before that, Smucker took one last stab at a fast time on his home track, Friday night, competing in the boys' "Meet of Champions" mile at the Hoka One One John Hay PA Distance Festival.

Smucker, a junior, laid down the best kick of the night, making up a nice margin on the leader in the closing 150 meters. In a dash to the line between Smucker, Haverford's James Abrahams, and Cheltenham's Will Griffen, Smucker took the win in a new mile PR of 4:18.66. Griffen took second in 4:18.70 and Abrahams was third in 4:19.17.
