Sterling’s Sydney Coppolino of Virginia blazes an 800 PR, races to ACC finals!!!!!!

What an 800 by Sterling graduate Sydney Coppolino Friday in the 800 trials at the ACC Championships.

Coppolino, a junior at Virginia, lowered her PR more than a second to 2:06.15 and advanced to the finals with the 4th-fastest time in the trials at Morris Williams Track & Field Stadium on the Duke campus in Durham, N.C.

Her previous PR was 2:07.26 on the same track last month at Duke Invitational.

Coppolino’s time is No. 8 in Virginia history and appears to be fastest by a South Jersey alum in nine years, since Haddonfield graduate Greta Feldman ran 2:03.34 at the American Milers Club event in Indianapolis in 2013.

.The 800 final is scheduled for 6:40 p.m. Saturday.
