Paul VI’s Mike Mazero upsets top seed to win state 400 title, PRs in 100!!!

Terrific start to the state Parochial A meet for Paul VI junior Michael Mazero, who won his first state title in one event and PR’d in another.

Mazero ran 48.95 to edge top-seeded Joe Morrone of St. Peter’s Prep and win the 400 at Neptune High and ran 10.82 on his way to third place in the 100. He ran 10.82 in the trials and placed third in the final in 10.93.

He’s run slightly faster for 400 meters – 48.93 to win the Camden County title last month – but his previous 100 PR was 11.17 when he won the Olympic Conference race. 

Mazero will run the 200 and 400-meter relay on Saturday.

      Oh gosh, I’m so sorry! I will fix that as soon as possible! Please pass along my apologies to Matt! You’ve got a very fast family! Congrats on all their success!
