“Again, they were number one pretty much all season,” North Caroline head coach Glen Whiteley said of his boys’ team. “It’s just we had to PR [hit personal-records] to keep it close. A lot of these kids did good today, but again, we had the numbers on the boys’ side.”
Nichols dueled teammate Erick Sanchez for the better part of the 1,600 meters before gaining separation in the second-to-last lap and winning in 4:49.50 — 3
seconds ahead of runner-up Sanchez. He then swapped leads with Sanchez and Cambridge-South Dorchester’s Connor McCroy and Trevor Goodwin through the first half of the 3,200 before again pulling away late for a first-place mark of 10:31.70.
Cambridge-SD, in its first season running indoor track, was led by Koletsky, who won the 500 (1:09.66) and 800 (2:11.23), and was second in the 300 (37.76). Queen Anne’s Cordell Rogers won the 300 in 37.10.
