Faith Guides Frosh Michaela Rose To All-American 800

Previews and recaps from New Balance Indoor Nationals for Team VA

Freshman superstar, Michaela Rose, used faith to guide her to an All-American 6th place finish in the 800m run this past weekend. She achieved that with a pr of 2:09.73 in her morning section. She had to wait around for another six hours or so to finally see she was an All-American. 

Michaela also ran a pr in the 400m dash indoors with her 55.47 finish in the EE 400. That was good enough for third place. 

This type of time puts her well on her way to breaking the Virginia State record of 2:06.03 for the indoor 800. She is well ahead of where Rachel McArthur or Kate Murphy was at this stage in their careers. She wants to be running 2:04 by the outdoor season.
