Woods Goes US No. 1 In Solo 800 Win

Last week Theo Woods took over the state leaderboard with his win at Bojangles, this week he took over the national leaderboard and did it completely by himself. His 1:50.24 winning time was not only good enough to take over the US No. 1 spot but it also now ranks him VA No. 15 all-time. 

His time is also the fastest time since 2016's Dogwood race which featured VA No. 2, No. 3, and No. 4 all-time. 

In the race itself Theo was on a mission. He opened in 25 mid and came thru halfway in 52-53. He then finished sub 60 in blustery conditions at The Heritage Invitational. He went on to win by a staggering 13 second margin. 

Next up for Theo will be a local twilight meet this week followed by the Dogwood Invitational at UVA the first Saturday in May.
