This is the 3rd fastest 1600m race run by a girl in the schools history. Meanwhile moving along at a rapid pace as well were Margot and Beata.

The final event of the night for the Dons team saw 1600m medal winner Noah comeback to run the 3200m (8 laps) race. And run it he did as he ran very smart race.
