Even a small meet in California feels the impact of Minnesota runners. The competitors will include Laura Januszewski, Garrett Heath, and Will Leer.
Our question this week will focus on the performance of the Minnesota men in the 1500.
Y/N: Will both Will Leer and Garrett Heath run faster than 3:40.00 at the USATF High Performance meet at Occidental College on Saturday evening?
Garrett Heath is a former state champion from Winona who graduated from Stanford in 2009. He finished 2nd in the NCAA 1500 outdoors and ended his career as a nine-time All-American. Heath boasts a 1500 P.R. of 3:37.57, and recently finished the Medtronic TC 1 Mile 5th in 4:06.4.
Will Leer is a Minnetonka High School grad and competed for Pomona College. He won four national titles at Pomona and graduated as one of the best D3 middle-distance runners ever. Leer has taken major strides since college as well - running 3:37.37 and finishing 4th and 5th in the last two USA Outdoor Championships. Leer recently ran 3:38.68 at the Oregon Relays on April 30th.

My answer: Yes
The question from last week was: Y/N: Will three or more runners break 4:00.00 in the Medtronic TC 1 Mile on Thursday? The answer was no - the race was tactical and David Torrence repeated in 4:04. Thirty one contestants answered correctly with very little change at the top of the leaderboard.

Good luck and thanks for playing Yes/No on DtB!
