Ellsworth's Aleta Looker was selected for the "Performance of the Week" in a very close vote with Greely's Kirstin Sandreuter. Just one vote seperated the two this week as Looker received 19. Looker's performance was impressive as she won her section of the 800m at the Terrier Classic running a state leading 2:18.10. Aleta currently ranks 4th in the state in the mile, and 2nd in Class B (5:19), and is ranked 6th in the state in the 2 Mile. Her 800m time ranks her 7th in New England & 41st nationally.
Alex Nichols of Brunswick had a huge performance at last week's KVAC meet @ Bowdoin. Nichols ran a state leading 50.14 in the 400m, the time is almost 1 sec up on the next fastest in the state. Also of note the time is faster than the current Class A state meet record 50.3, and not that far off the Maine all-time best of 49.93. Alex is also ranked #1 in the state in the 200m (22.89), the ran that last week as well. His 400m time ranks him 4th in New England & 44th in the country. The 200m time is 3rd fastest in New England.
Congratulations to both Aleta & Alex on being selected as the Maine Running Company Performance of the Week
