Andy Whitney Goldberg MWG 1979

Whitney & coach Marvin Goldberg talk race strategy in 1979

On this day 39 years ago, Andy Whitney finished 3rd in the two mile at the prestigious Golden West Invitational in Sacramento, CA.

The senior blazed to a time of 9:05.9 to cap an incredible career that included state championships in cross country and the two mile, Suffolk crowns in cross country (2), the mile, and two mile, and a Penn Relays title in the two mile.

Whitney still owns the school record in the mile (4:14.5) and two mile (9:02.9) runs.
