Track: Elias Gedyon goes out in style

June 5, 2011 | 12:02 pm

Elias Gedyon of Los Angeles Loyola ended his prep career with a fourth state individual championship, winning the 3,200 Saturday in 8:50.03.

That came after he ran a career-best 4:04.09 to fnish second in the 1,600.

He was the only athlete to run in the 1,600 and the 3,200.

Thirteen of the 3,200 runners finished under nine minutes.

Now it's off to Oregon for Gedyon, who will be long remembered as one of the greatest distance runners in Loyola history.
