Will Landowne is very fast.
The news about his record-setting race time is very slow.
But thanks to Inklings — the Staples newspaper — we now know that the Wrecker senior has run the fastest 3000 meters of any high school runner in the nation this winter.
Landowne roared to an 8:33.81 time last weekend, at the 36th annual Yale Classic indoor meet in New Haven.
But that wasn’t all. The track captain — who runs up to 50 miles in training each week — also anchored Staples’ winning 4×800 relay team. Their time was 8:03.13.
The Wreckers are now racing toward the FCIAC, state LL, state open and New England championships. Landowne and his teammates vow to leave everyone else far behind.
