So. Gavin Richards, North Hunterdon
Fast take: Richards comes in seeded 22nd with a best time of 1 minute, 56.05 seconds. He will also be on the Lions’ 3,200-meter relay (see below) which has championship aspirations, and there’s not much time between them. Could just be a warm-up for Richards, then; but he does have a blazing kick and could break that 1:56 barrier. Or he may not run at all.
