Timber Creek senior Brian Eaton opened his 2021 indoor season with a big 800 PR at the Bennett Center.
In a tri-meet with Highland and Delsea, Eaton won the 800 in 2:00.20, more than three seconds below his previous PR of 2:03.46 from the Ocean Breeze Invitational in January of last year. It was Eaton’s first race since Group 3 states last February. Eaton’s outdoor 800 PR is 2:06.67 from the 2019 Camden County Championships at Haddon Township.
Eaton’s time is fastest by a Timber Creek half-miler in 11 years, since Saliym Starkey ran 1:58.04 to place 3rd at the 2019 state Group 3 meet on the same track in Toms River.
