1970 NY Relays Summary

You may know Tony Colon & Dennis Fikes are two of the best-ever schoolboy track athletes from NYC. You're probably not surprised they finished one - two in the 1970 NY Relays Mile Run York Relays. Tony established a meet record time of 4:11.2. Dennis Fikes was the runner-up in stellar time 4:16.2, also better than the previous meet record. But did you know Ed Walsh finished 4th in the outstanding time of 4:19.8, missing 3rd place by a mere eight-tenths of a second!
