Simplot was a blast! The meet was very competitive with 2 national records going down!! We took 16 athletes and several of them made finals highlighted by a 4th place 4x800 team of Nathan Huerta, Jonnie Rivera, Mike Lucio and Mike Palmtag! The sprint medley team of Ryan Puckett, Alex Doucet, Mike Bradford and Nathan Huerta placed 10th in a very competitive field! Nathan came back for a 3rd final and ran to a 10th place finish in the 2 mile. Ryan Puckett was the other finalist in the 400 where he placed 18th. Great job guys and get ready for outdoors!!
