Penn State University sophomore and 2007 Yellow Springs High School alumnus Sam Borchers doubled up and won two races last weekend, April 17–18, at an invitational Track & Field meet at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pa. Borchers left the competition behind in the 1500 meter run with a 4:05 equivalent mile. His winning time, which qualified him for the IC4A meet, was 3:49.81. Second place was 3:55.84. Borchers then came back in the 800 and bested the runner-up by a second in 1:53.14.

This weekend he will compete at the 114th Penn Relays in the distance medley relay (running the 1200-meter leg) and then coming back at the same event in the 4×100 mile relay.

Also competing this weekend at the Penn Relays are the bother/sister duo from YSHS , Mitchell and Reini Brickson. Mitchell is in the men’s 10,000-meter Olympic development race walk and Reini is in the women’s 5,000 ODRW.
