One-Mile Racewalk
Dartmouth Relays
Hanover, NH 01/12/03

****FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE****

Leverone Field House,
Dartmouth College,
Hanover, NH
12 Jan, 2003

Pollinger walks with the best at Dartmouth Relays as a High School Junior:

Zach Pollinger, a high school Junior from NJ made the 8 hour trek to Hanover, NH to walk his first indoor race of the season, and turned in a spectacular 6:32.82 one mile time while finishing in third place behind a much older Patrick Boisclair from Canada (6:06.89) and University of Wisconsin at Parkside standout Ben Shorey (6:21.39). Although Shorey was only racing the mile for a workout, since he is currently preparing for the 20k Nationals (he has had some outstanding one mile times in the 6 minute flat range), it does not detract at all from the outstanding performance of Pollinger. The first of several high school walkers in the Dartmouth competition, Zach, who is clearly way ahead of his peers, is now preparing for his debut at the exciting Milrose one mile racewalk to be held next month at Madison Square Garden. He will also be competing again, before Milrose, with much older and more experienced walkers at the Greater Boston Invitational 3000 meter indoor racewalk to be held at Harvard University at 9:30 am on Sunday 19 Jan.
