ALLENDALE, Mich. -- Sophomore Robert Crockett (Detroit, Mich./King) recorded a pair of PRs at Friday's (Jan. 18) Mike Lints Open hosted by Grand Valley State University. Crockett big day was all the more impressive due to the fact it came against NCAA Division I & II competition.
Running in the mile, Crockett came back strong after a five-minute-plus time at SVSU last weekend by posting a personal best 4:49 time. Crockett's time was good for 30th in a loaded mile event.
Teammate Gaoussou Cisse (Southfield, Mich./Lathrup) also entered the mile and ran a 5:40.
Crockett would also set a personal best in the men's 800m race. The sophomore would cross the line with a time of 2:05 to best NCAA Division II competition on his way to his record performance in the event.
Freshman upstart Jonathon Rutkowski (Riverview, Mich./Gabriel Richard) would run the 3000m in 11:09 and the 5000m in 18:46. Teammate and sophomore Akil Prowell (Detroit, Mich./Crockett) clocked in at 17:28 in the 5000m.
