Maine Goes the Distance at the New England Championship

Maddox Jordan doesn't like to lead races, but the senior adjusted this winter to become comfortable at the front of the pack. Jordan showed his prowess in the New England Championship mile on Saturday as the Noble high school standout found himself at the front of the pack setting the pace through the first 1100 meters. 

With 500 meters to go, Jack Ouellette of Xavier, CT took over the lead while Jordan remained right behind him. "It let me recover a little, which helped me at the end." Jordan wisely moved to the front just before the homestretch with 250 meters to go as he avoided getting boxed in. No one would be able to match the pace of Maddox over the last 200m as he crossed the line first in 4:15.45 covering the final 2 laps in 61 seconds.
