IHS Lions Fourth Straight Win for IHS’s Rob Mitchell Rob Mitchell began the season with a fourth place finish, but he has not settled for less than first since then. Last Monday, Mitchell was back at Swope Park for the EA Markey Invitational, running a 2.2 mile course this time. IHS’s Mitchell, Dominique Bynum from Central AE, and Kamal Adam from East HS pulled ahead of the other runners early in the race. The three developed a comfortable rapport over the first couple of miles, but as the finish line came into sight, Kamal Adam initiated a challenge. Mitchell and Bynum responded, and the spectators cheered encouragingly, as the three competitors tested their limits by sprinting the last stretch of the race. Mitchell, only inches in front of Bynum, crossed the line with a time of 13:44. They were followed by Adam who finished a second later for third place.
