Tales of Two From Tappan Zee: Prepping For Big Races

Orangeburg, NY - This winter, Tappan Zee High School garned both a male and female individual win at the NYSPHSAA Indoor State Champions.  But the story didn't start there.  The two, who live less than a block from eachother, have been running together for years.  Over that time, they've learned how to prepare under pressure, and execute on race day.  We gave them a camera, and asked them to document these preparations, in time for the New Balance Indoor Nationals.

This weekend, both have entered into the Penn Relays.  Luke Gavigan, the 1600m champ indoors, is the top seed for the Invite Mile.  Erin Jaskot, the 1000m champ indoors, is taking her talents to the 4x800m.  We expect many of the same routines to occur in their preparation.  Hit fullscreen and enjoy!
