Fast 800 highlights Club West Masters Meet in Santa Barbara

Stan Whitley doubled.

Meet director Andy Hecker says the resurrected Club West Masters Meet on Sunday fell short (by maybe half) of the usual 150 entrants. He said the Westmont College event — conflicting with some meet in Western Australia — had rainy conditions off and on and a sizable number of no shows in Santa Barbara. “We had a fantastic 800 with three guys breaking 2:00, M35 Nick Thornton won in 1:58.74. M42 Perry McBride was 1:59.53. M65 Nolan Shaheed was a distant fifth (in 2:27.03).” (which would have taken fourth in Perth). Here are results, which show standing long jump and some great M70 marks by Stan Whitley (100 in 13.66 and 200 in 28.95.) Perry, BTW, ran the 400 hurdles in the 50-second range early this millennium. He applied for the 2004 Olympic Trials in that event (but didn’t make it). He also was a good triple jumper. Welcome back, Perry!

    I enjoyed competing in this meet. The Westmont facility is excellent, and it was only the cool and sometimes rainy weather that was slightly problematic. Hopefully, the meet can continue to use this venue in the future, and develop a larger level of participation!
