Image Contributor Fifth-year senior Liam Boylan-Pett ran the second sub-four-minute mile nearly a year to the day after his teammate, senior Andrew Bumbalough, accomplished the same feat. Yet this year, instead of having one pacer and one runner racing, Georgetown put junior Sandy Roberts, graduate student Liam Boylan-Pett, and recent graduate Matt Debole on the track, with all three having a legitimate chance of going sub-four.
The pacing duties were left to junior Alex Bean, who was given the responsibility of getting the group through meters at a consistent pace in 2: Yet as Head Coach Pat Henner shouted out the splits for each meter lap, Bean could tell that he was keeping the pace even, consistently hitting just under 30s per lap, right where he needed to be.
His duty fulfilled, Bean stepped off the track after meters, leaving the rest up to Roberts, Boylan-Pett and Debole. Debole took up the work from there, keeping up the pace over the next meters and keeping the contingent within striking distance of sub-four.
With each lap the intensity built, as the group stayed on pace, growing ever closer to the final meters, where it all would be decided. Finally, with meters to go, Debole started tying up, and Boylan-Pett made a strong move to take the lead, kicking hard as he tried to beat the clock.
As he crossed the line, he saw that first number that every runner dreams about seeing one day on their mile time — a 3. His final time read 3: Both teammates and coaches exploded in congratulations as they saw Boylan-Pett record the fifth-fastest mile in a storied history of Georgetown milers. It was so impressive.
It still has resonance with the average-type sports fan. For a humble Boylan-Pett, whose previous personal best in the mile was 4: Boylan-Pett, a graduate student who spent most of his collegiate running career at Columbia, has eligibility left only for this upcoming outdoor season, and therefore has been running unattached during the current season. He ran for the Hoyas during the cross country season, but as a track athlete, he is especially looking forward to putting the uniform back on this spring.
Senior Christine Whalen set up the race by pacing the duo in the early going, and then Tomlin pushed it from there. Infeld made a decisive move late, but Tomlin hung right with her as the duo shattered both meet and facility records as they crossed the line. The times stand as second- and third-fastest in Georgetown history, surpassed only by NCAA champion Chris Mullen, who set the mark back in Ogrodnick, who also broke her personal record in the open m, looked especially good as she ran a fast first leg.
After flying in to Happy Valley late the night before, Mason then went on to win the m in 2: Have a reaction to this article? Write a letter to the editor. Thanks for such a handy article….
