Ellerton at Alex Wilson Invite

Andrew Ellerton busted out a 1:47.2/800m split in Michigan's third place finish at the Alex Wilson Invitational at Notre Dame last night. That's moves Michigan from 22nd to 4th in the NCAA and qualifies them for Nationals. He runs the 800m open tonight.

There are links to the video and a story about the race below. The race is on an oversized track, so each lap does not equal 200m and exchanges are in different places every time. Michigan's jersey's are dark blue with a big "M" on the front. Andrew gets the baton in the 3rd leg in about 7th place and is barely in the movie frame until the later laps of his leg, at which point he has gotten Michigan back into contention.
