Big PR Saturday for Bishop Eustace graduate Connor Melko, who won the mile at the Big Apple Invitational at Ocean Breeze in 4:08.55.
Melko, a senior at Lehigh, ran the No. 4 time in school history and lowered his PR from 4:10.12 in his last race, last weekend in the Scarlet Knight Open at the Armory.
The 4:08.55 qualified Melko for the IC4A Championships March 3-4 in Boston.
Melko finished two steps ahead of Connor McMenamin, a former Bucknell and Penn State runner. The next collegiate runner in the field was Melko’s current Lehigh teammate, sophomore Aidan Lynch, who was 3rd in 4:11.23.
Melko has shown great range at Lehigh, from 1:52.62 for 800 meters to 14:15.73 for 5,000 meters. His mile PR before this month was 4:14.39 from last year’s Dr. Sander Invitational Columbia Challenge at the Armory.
