Jacob Corbett capped off his high school career with a new school record in the 3200m run. Mike McClaran is a legend in NPCC and NPTF history and his 3200 time of 9:24.95 lasted for 31 years. Jacob ran with poise and conviction throughout the race. Jacob competed well with the best runners in the state. Jacob placed 10th just narrowly missing out on a state medal.
During his four years of high school running, Jacob demonstrated selflessness and determination at every opportunity. I am so very lucky to have been able to coach him during this process. Jacob will be missed by us all. Thank you to everyone who came out to support Jacob and for those of you who were cheering at home!
He ended his season having run the 15th fastest 1600m time and the 14th fastest 3200m time in the state for the 2019 season!
