Andrews' 1:45.54 Demotes Tufariello & Others

The University of Virginia's Robby Andrews (who came close to running for Villanova, but opted for Charlottesville) ran the third fastest 800 meters time of any American junior in history. In so doing, he bumped down a peg some great Villanova half-milers: Tufariello, Belger, and Marshall. Here is the list:
