The Mid and Long Distance crew had a double Gold medalist in Brooke Yeates in the 800m, and 1500m (both PRs.) Todd Yeates finished third in the 1500 (pending official review.) Ellie Maynor earned double Silver, and our female athlete of the week, Emory Nessa, earned Gold and Silver. Alex Frohna and Sarah Perrea both got 4th in the 1500m.
