Event Info: 2016 Winner: Kevin Moshier (Corning) 4:20.44, State Record: 4:05.50, Meet Record (2000s): 4:11.21, State Qualifier Mark (FAT): 4:28.74
State of the Action: It would seem as if the Corning middle-distance runners are starting to coordinate race plans. How can we tell? Kevin Moshier unleashed a kick not unsimiliar to what we've seen from Jess Lawson over the years, and it paid off with another 1600m State Title. The senior has never gone under 4:20, his winning mark from the year before, and through much of the race, it would appear as if Moshier would be in for a blanket finish. However, with one lap to go, he put himself in the lead. There, he would throw down the biggest split of the day, hitting 27.80 in the final lap, the only sub-30sec lap of the field in the entire race.
