A week ago Scudder battled with Lowell Hensgen (Cardinal Gibbons) and Jack Filan (Cambridge, GA) in the fast section of the 3200m. Scudder led the majority of the race and slowly pulled away from the field over the final 400m to earn a 4 second win ahead of Hensgen.
Scudder ran a converted 4:17.93, good for an NC#3 mark, but will look to beat that against a strong field at Lee-Davis. His biggest competition will be L.C. Bird (VA) sophomore Jacob Plummer who ran 4:18.55 during the indoor season. He'll also have plenty of athletes hungry to dip under 4:20 for the first time.
Saturday, April 20th is also Scudder's 18th birthday so a new PR would be a great present for himself.
Durham School of the Arts will also send a squad to Lee-Davis headlined by star thrower and NCHSAA 1A/2A State Champion Teteateh Snoh who will face off against a few fellow 40 foot throwers.
