Drew Hunter Crushes The B.A.A. Mile In Boston Ahead Of Marathon Monday
By Johanna Gretschel - FloTrack
Loudoun Valley (VA) High graduate and adidas pro Drew Hunter won the B.A.A. men's mile title Saturday in Boston in 4:08.2. The race included three laps around the city block, beginning and ending on Boylston Street, and finished at the marathon finish line for Monday's Boston Marathon.
Hunter and his Tinman Elite teammate, Sam Parsons, controlled the pace up front with Patrick Casey. On the final loop, Dartmouth middle distance coach John Simons and Daniel Herrera of Mexico surpassed Casey and finished second and third in 4:09 and 4:09.2.
While Hunter enjoyed the crowds and atmosphere in Boston this weekend, he's not sticking around to watch the marathon because he said he has to go to class on Monday; watch the interview video here.
Nicole Sifuentes won the women's mile and it was her second consecutive title. Last year, she established a venue record of 4:33.7. Windy conditions today slowed down the pace-though Sifuentes noted after the race that lack of challengers also impacted the time, as she led wire-to-wire en route to victory.
