FitzSimons 3rd at Junior Nationals 800

Capping a week that saw him win two prep national titles (4x800 and DMR) with stirring anchor legs, Villanova signee Chris FitzSimons (Hamden, CT) today finshed third in the open 800 at the USATF Junior Nationals. His 1:48.83 is a new PR for the open 800 meters, and FitzSimons was bested only by two collegiate standouts: Robbie Andrews (the NCAA indoor champion and outdoor runner-up at 800 meters for the University of Virginia) and Casimir Loxsom (the Big 10 Conference 800 meters champion from Penn State).

Here are the official results:
