Strong Showing by Peabody at Nationals [VIDEO]
Highlights for the Tanners were the sprint medley team's 15th place and Grube's 19th place at the indoor national championships in New York.
The Peabody High boys didn’t take home any medals from the New Balance Indoor Nationals this past weekend, but the track team did put on a strong showing.
The sprint medley relay team of Austin Brewster, Bobby Losanno, Nick Christensen and Nick Ingham finished 15th overall in a time of 3:37.86. Christensen ran the 800 leg of the medley and was scheduled to compete in the mile as well, but scratched for precautionary reasons, the Salem News reported.
Christensen, who is ranked highly on the national level as a miler, was recovering from an injury during the season.
Zack Grube also competed in the elite level of competition, jumping into a pack a 19th place at 6 3-1/4.
In the emerging elite competition, Chris Cennami placed 33rd in 7.29 seconds in the 60-meter preliminaries, too far back to qualify for the finals, along with Brewster in 39th at 7.32 and Losanno in 52nd at 7.43.
The 4x200 relay team of Nat Gaye, Michael Reardon, Losanno and Brewster finished 27th in 1:34.65, while the 4x400 team of Tom Martinez, Grube, Tommy Drover and Ingham were 22nd in 3:31.
