Stars Align for Three Virgos at Little Rocky RunSun, 8-5-2018 | Paul Parry
At a muggy and damp Little Rocky Run yesterday, amid the crowd and under the gaze of the immortal Bob York, three All Stars reached record holder status.
In the 11-12 Freestyle, Michael Mullen of Old Keene Mill stunned the crowd in an upset over the current record-holder, Donovan Kovalsky, finishing with a blazing kick and touching in 26.18. Donovan had just lowered the mark to 26.20 the week before.
Then in the 13-14 Girls Back, Hunter Mill’s Alexandra Dicks tied 18-time All American Janet Hu’s 29.75. Janet’s record was set in 2010 while she was at Mosby Woods.
The last record was set in the Boys 9-10 Breast, when Brandon Lesser of Daventry lowered his own mark of 37.28, touching in 37.26.
