Kingsway graduate Stone Caraccio of Monmouth runs indoor PR for 800 meters at Ocean Breeze!!!

In his first open 800 of the season, Kingsway graduate Stone Caraccio ran an indoor PR last weekend at Ocean Breeze.

Caraccio, a second-year freshman at Monmouth, ran 1:53.58, placing 3rd at the Villanova Invitational.

This was Caraccio’s first collegiate 800 indoors. His  previous indoor PR was a 1:54.53 as a Kingsway senior in February of 2020 at the Morris County Coaches Invitational on the same track in Staten Island, N.Y.

Caraccio has a lifetime 800 best of 1:52.32 from May in a meet at Rowan University in Glassboro.

The Monmouth top-10 performance list goes down to 1:53.22, so Caraccio didn’t quite make it onto the all-time list, but he’s less than half a second away.

Caraccio placed third behind Villanova sophomore Miller Anderson [1:53.21] and 1-100th of a second behind Long Island University junior Lucas Fernandez [1:53.57].

Caraccio got out slowly and was in 11th place after a 28.5 lap. He split 27.9 for his second lap and moved up to 8th, coming through the 400 in 56.4. He moved up to 5th with a 28.8 third lap and closed in 28.9 to finish 3rd.
