Pittston Area’s Dave McLean saved his best for last.
The Patriots senior distance runner posted his best time of the season to win the District 2 Class 3A 1600-meter run and earn his first Track & Field gold medal in his final district event.
For his effort, Dave has been named The Sunday Dispatch Pittston Area Athlete of the Week for the week May 23-May 29.
McLean ran a 4:29.42 to win the event by more than six seconds over the second-place finisher. He also bested his season-best time by almost seven seconds.
Posters of Dave can be seen at Tony’s Pizza in Pittston, and Smart Designs and Graphics in Wyoming, sponsors of the Pittston Area Athlete of the Week.
