At the Bedford Invitational last weekend, Zach gunned down the currently #3 ranked 3200m AA runner in PA by over 100 meters and smoked the #9 ranked 1600m AA runner by about the same margin.

Coach Steve Everhart’s Quote: 

“Both #3 and #9 in the state of PA were fresh while Zach had run all three distance races…in a blizzard no less. It sounds like a story some BS’er would tell his grandkids about ‘when I was young’…only it really happened.”
