Grimwis Wins National Crown

At the Hershey Youth National Indoor Championships in Oceanbreeze, NY Jacob Grimwis raised the bar for the indoor season by winning the gold in the 800 meter run with a wining time of 1:56.15 and setting a new meet record in the boy’s 17-18 age division.

During the Simplot Games in February at Idaho State University, Jacob turned in a first place performance in the 800 meters with a time of 1:55.0.  His time was solid enough that it automatically advanced him to the USATF Hershey Youth indoor championships in Oceanbreeze, NY.
