The MHSAA Division 3 State Finals were held at Comstock Park on June 3rd. Steve Mance was entered in the 1600m and 3200m runs, and was the first Foley boy to compete in the state meet since 1989 (several girls have during the 90's, most recently Kathy Green in the SP and DT). Steve started out fast, knowing that in order to place he would need to be near the school record (4:24). He did not place, but still managed to get a 4 second PR with a 4:32.1. His splits were (65,66,71,70), quite different from his regional PR (72,68,71,65). In the 3200m, nothing seemed to work right. Starting off in 72, he struggled to keep that pace up, hitting 1600m in 4:58. The second 1600m was much worse though, with an enourmous lactic acid buildup, running it in 5:32, for a 10:30 3200m (the second slowest serious 3200m this year, only a 10:34 at MCC in January was slower).
