TBC Athlete Runs Top 1600m Time in California!

This is a photo from this past Saturday's Mt Carmel Invitational. Here is Shyan Vaziri, and his teammate Brad Littooy behind him, in the fast heat of the boys' 1600 meter run, (aka mile). Shyan went on to win this race in 4:14.86, the fastest time in California, 5th fastest in the nation, and a time which will win most state meets in the US. Shyan is a senior headed to UC Santa Barbara, and with 2+ months to go in the season, could be a force on the national scene!

Brad is a junior, who finished 3rd in this race, in a PR of 4:18.57, good enough to put him in the top 30 in the US. He's far peaked as well, and I believe when he turns a focus to the 3200, he'll be a national force there as well. Plus, he has another year, which is very exciting!

I have had the pleasure of working with these two from September thru February, and it was a very proud coaching weekend to see them do so well, after just handing them over to their new high school coach a few weeks ago. I also had another athlete finish in a PR of 4:26, who is also just a junior, and a member of my TriJuniors program.

If you know a high school athlete seeking help, I love being a part of seeing young kids progress.
