Izaic Yorks Wins Furman Elite 1500

Izaic Yorks got his first win as a pro Saturday night at the Furman Elite Invitational in Greenville, South Carolina. Izaic ran 3:38.01 in the meet’s elite 1500 meters to lead the first five finishers under 3:39.0, the qualifying standard for this month’s USATF outdoor championships.

The win provided further evidence that Izaic is rounding into shape at the right time in his first full season as a professional athlete. Last month he set an 800-meter personal best of 1:47.59. Saturday’s win was just a quarter-second off his 1500 PR.

In the women’s elite 1500 at Furman, Nicole Sifuentes placed 4th in 4:06.24. The race was won by Marta Pen Freitas in 4:05.71.
