Another 800 PR for Sterling grad Sydney Coppolino of Virginia!

Sterling graduate Sydney Coppolino found herself in a hot 800 Saturday afternoon and wound up with another personal best.

Coppellino, racing in the Virginia Challenge at Lannigan Field on the University of Virginia campus in Charlottesville, ran 2:08.61 in the fourth of six sections of a race that saw 25 women break 2:10,.

Coppolino, a Virginia sophomore, smashed her personal best of 2:09.21, which she just set earlier this month on the same track. Her time is No. 9 in the ACC so far this year.

Before this season, Coppolino had a collegiate PR of 2:10.67 from the 2020 indoor ACC Championships at Notre Dame.

Coppolino ran 2:11.45 at the 2017 Meet of Champions at Northern Burlington, and that remained her lifetime best outdoors until this month.

Coppolino’s 2:08.61 doesn’t quite make Virginia’s all-time top-10 outdoor times, but it’s only 1.02 seconds off the No. 10 time so she’s in very good company.
