So Tamagno, who set the Mt. Sac course record last year at 14:23 on a Saturday morning race, ended up running the race yesterday afternoon/evening this year so he could take the ACT this morning. Running in the hotter evening conditions, he came up way short of his record - 14:37.
Anyway, when I saw he was taking a test. I wondered why. Obviously a kid that fast will have offers from everyone. I assume the only reason you''d take a standardized test in the middle of the season is if you needed to score higher so you could go to Stanford or an Ivy.
Listening to him talk, he certainly doesn't sound stupid so I can't imagine he's taken the test to try to his the NCAA minimum.
Anyone know where he is loooking?
