Daniel McCarthy & Gordon Doore 800m Time Trial
Bangor High School teammates Daniel McCarthy and Gordon Doore wanted to test their fitness once more in 2021 as they hit the track at Hampden Academy last Saturday evening for an 800m time trial. The duo ran on the Class A state champion 4x800m relay for the Rams a week ago where they clocked 8:10.16. McCarthy also added a third-place finish in the 800m (1:58.21) at the state meet.
During the time trial, McCarthy set the pace from the start as he came through 400m in approximately 57 seconds with Doore right behind. Daniel continued to push the pace as he finished strong to stop the clock at 1:53.3, while Doore finished in a time of 1:57.9. McCarthy's time was a huge personal best from his previous best of 1:58.21 and if in an official race would rank him sixth fastest in Maine state outdoor history, while Doore broke the 2 minute barrier for the first time improving on his best of 2:00.69. Doore will head off to Colby College in the fall, and McCarthy will be a senior at Bangor.
