Phipps earns 2 of Creston’s 4 H-10 championships
SHENANDOAH — Creston junior Brandon Phipps, battling injury for much of the 2013 track season, returned to his old form here Monday, winning the distance double at the Hawkeye 10 Conference Meet.
Phipps easily cruised to a win in the 3,200 meter run, running the final seven laps of the race with nearly a 100-meter lead over the chase pack. He would later double back in the 1,600 meter run with a close victory over Harlan’s Philip Sciranko.
“The month of March and most of April, he was pretty frustrated with his leg injury,” Creston head coach Pat Schlapia said. “Patience is a virtue. That was hard for Brandon to accept. The last couple of weeks, it’s been a new world for him.”
