Cinnaminson’s Gabay blasts another 800 PR, running first sub-1:55 at Haddonfield!!!!!

Austin Gabay may no longer be a miler and two-miler who occasionally runs a fast 800.

He may be a half-miler.

Gabay, who ran a big PR of 1:56.64 at the BCSL Meet on Saturday at Willingboro, lowered his 800 PR nearly another two seconds Monday when he ran 1:54.73 at the Haddonfield Distance Night.

That’s No. 2 in Cinnaminson history, behind only Matt Poskus, who ran 1:52.37 at the 2007 Meet of Champions.

Gabay’s 800 PR before Saturday was 1:58.32 from last year’s BCSL meet, so it’s now come down nearly four seconds in three days.

Seniors Chad Howard and Gabe St. Elien also PR’d for Cinnaminson, Howard in 2:00.76 and St. Elien in 2:00.78. Howard’s previous PR was 2:04.87 and St. Elien’s was 2:02.76.
