Gamble Bridges the Gap on Congress

Sam Chambers
Meredith Gamble surged to third place in The 2010 Congress Avenue Mile run giving her East team an overall victory as she crossed the line on South Congress Avenue.
Meredith Gamble led the East squad to team victory at the 2010 Congress Avenue Mile in Austin, Texas today.  Sitting in a pack in about 9th place with 600 meters to go, Meredith finished strong and closed on a couple runners in the last few meters to finish 3rd in the entire race!  Her unofficial time was 5:00.3. 

52 of the top 53 1600 meter runners in the state of Texas were present today (state leader Chelsea Sveinsson of Greenhill School is injured), and Meredith was the third to cross the finish line - quite an accomplishment for Meredith personally, her coach Viet Do, and the St. John's Mavericks Track & Field and Cross Country programs!
