NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Freshman Pedro Bravo US'20 and the 4-by-800-meter relay team set records this past weekend at the 13th Annual New York Relays. Bravo broke the previous CHSAA league freshman 3,200-meter record by four seconds, while the relay team ran the fastest 4-by-800 in more than two years.
Bravo ran an incredible time of 9:42.45, good for the fifth-best 3,200 time in Iona Preparatory history and the fastest freshman in New York. And that was just Day 1.
Bravo then teamed up with Gibran Mourani US'18, Tyler Dorsainvil US'18 and Bobby Parisi US'17 on Day 2 to run the fastest 4x800 in the CHSAA, second fastest in Westchester and seventh fastest in all of New York. With splits of 2:04, 2:03, 2:01 and 2:01, respectively, it was a mark the boys had been chasing all year.
