Big mile PR by Duke freshman Austin Gabay, a 2020 graduate of Cinnaminson High School.
Gabay ran 4:10.83 at the Hokie Invitational at Virginia Tech’s in Blacksburg, Va. He placed 12th overall in the event but third in his section. Gabay closed in 31.44 for his final 200.
It was Gabay’s first full mile as a collegian and his first open race this indoor season.
Gabay ran 3:46.10 outdoors last spring for 1,500 meters, which is the equivalent to a 4:04.19 full mile. He also PR’d at 800 meters with a 1:54.17 in a meet at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville.
Gabay’s indoor mile PR was a 4:20.31 two years ago as a Cinnaminson senior in a meet at Ocean Breeze. His 1,600 PR was 4:16.02 outdoors at the 2019 state Group 2 meet at Central Regional in Bayville.
