Kick Of The Week: CBA's Tim McInerney Drops Nasty 1600m Kick

This week's Kick Of The Week comes to us from the Garden State.  

At the Monmouth County Championships in Holmdel, New Jersey, the boys 1600m was a showdown last Wednesday evening. The race produced two of the top times in the state. 

From the gun, it was a two-man race between Shore Regional High School's (NJ) Drew Maher and Christian Brothers Academy's (NJ) Tim McInerney. The duo ran one-two for the entire race. With 300m to go Maher looked to make a slight move to pull away from McInerney, but McInerney covered well holding on.

In fact, McInerney didn't just cover Maher's move -- he made a huge push of his own turning on the jets at the 200m mark. After that McInerney was gone, he opened his lead with each stride flying to a new New Jersey No.1 and US No. 19 time of 4:10.75.  Maher finished second with a new NJ No. 3 time of 4:13.91. 

Maher came back for revenge on Friday in the 800m where he flew to a blistering US No. 4 time of 
1:50.73. Watch the 1600m kick above and check out Maher's full 800m race below.
