Birger Solberg Invitational - 2 Golds For Mason

Click the link above to read the Bellingham Herald's News story for all the information.

What a beautiful day for a race! And a popular race it is becoming!

There was lots of excitment and shocking outcomes, the kids efforts really paid off.

Even Nathan Seely, pushed himself and almost over came Mason in the 800m. Really made Mason work for his first place medal with Nathan Coming in second.

The sprinters and the girls 1600m were all very exciting, and quite the upset in the 1600m with Annie Moore taking the gold by a pinch. Go Annie!

Mason claimed the 800 in 1:54.38, inches ahead of Seely’s 1:54.89 in a tight race, and he also won the 1,600 in 4:19.54 to lead the defending state champion Sehome boys to second with 87 points behind Class 4A Tacoma Wilson. So far, Mase has not lost a individual race this season.

But, he needs to run a 1:52 or better to qualify for the race down in Sacremento.

It was the best day weather wise, in months. I think a lot of us, including Mason got a tan that day!

Now I can't resist posting this picture of one of Mason's buddies that ran and won the seldom-run 2,000 steeplechase. He is a kick! His time was 6:40.32, and was well ahead of the others. Here he is, looks like he is just out for a jog?
