Former Tiger Sets New Track Record At St. Vincent College

Posted on:

Former North Allegheny Track athlete Vince Tonzo is continuing his successful career at St. Vincent College in Latrobe. This weekend, Tonzo set a new school record in the 800 meters, representing Saint Vincent in the Jesse Owens Invitational, hosted by Ohio State University. Tonzo, competing against a field made up of almost exclusively NCAA Division I runners, finished second in his heat, and 6th overall among a field of 33.  He was timed in 1:51.39.

During the indoor track season, Tonzo was selected as the PAC Men’s Track Athlete of the Week on January 19. Tonzo ran to a first-place finish in the mile run (4:31.37) at the West Virginia Invitational Saturday, highlighting Saint Vincent’s first-ever varsity indoor meet. The junior runner also competed on the 4×400 relay team that posted a second-place time of 3:39.21 in the event.
