Once again, senior sprinter John Mack staked a claim to the title of fastest man on campus. This time, the event was men's indoor track's Penn State-Princeton-Connecticut Triangular meet held Sunday in University Park, Pa.
Mack's performance in the 400 meters bettered the previous meet record, posting a time of 48.17 seconds, Mack, who also competes in the 200 and in relays, has been a vital part of Princeton's success over the past few years. Last spring, Mack earned Outstanding Performer of the Meet honors at the outdoor Heptagonal Championships. The Tigers' top sprinter competed in the finals of four events, taking home first-place finishes in three — the 200, 400, and 4x400 relay. The senior is also the defending indoor champion in the 400.
As Princeton nears the most important stretch of its indoor season — with the annual Harvard-Yale-Princeton meet this weekend and the indoor Heptagonals at the end of the month — Mack will once again be called on to deliver.
If past performances hold true, one can bet that this fast man will be ready to answer that call.
