Jeuness Invitational – In recognition of a successful weekend across the board from each of our runners, during the Jeuness Invitational held by the Jeuness Track Club, located at Poly Prep in Brooklyn, NY.
Benswic runners yet again came out to perform, and left feeling that much confident in our next few races.
On the track, Abigail Melican (15-16) competed in the 800m with the time of 2:39.20 and the 1500m in 5:18.00, placing her 6th in the 800m and 1st in the 1500m, while Bryana Marshall (15-16) had an outstanding performance in the 100m with the time of 13.20 (PR) and the 200m with the time of 26.40 (PR).
