Delsea’s Noah Deckert of St. Joe’s runs eye-popping 1,500 PR at Larry Ellis Invitational!!!!!!

Delsea grad Noah Deckert, a junior at St. Joe’s, notched a huge 1,500 PR Friday night at Princeton’s Larry Ellis Invitational.

Deckert ran 3:50.29, equivalent of a 4:08.71 full mile. His previous PR was 3:55.81 – in his last race – at the Colonial Relays two weeks ago in Williamsburg, Va. Before that his PR was 4:05.57 from a meet last year at Temple.

So Deckert has lowered his 1,500 lifetime-best more than 15 seconds in the last two weeks. Deckert has a 4:15.03 full mile PR from last year’s Larry Ellis Invitational, so he’s lowered his mile equivalent more than six seconds in two weeks.

Deckert ran 45.00 for the first 300 and then ran his 400s in 63.11, 62.28 and 59.92. So he closed in 2:02.20 for his final 800.

Cherokee graduate Nico Grilli, a Monmouth freshman, PR’d at 3:58.09, the equivalent of a 4:17.14 mile. His previous 1,500 PR was 4:01.22.

Rowan’s Jacob Riley, who ran scholastically for North Warren, ran 3:56.56, a 4:15.48 equivalent.
