Long, Fisher put on a show in field of Pro Runners
ST. LOUIS • More than $6,000 of prize money was paid out Thursday in the eighth annual Festival of Miles track and field meet on the campus of St. Louis U. High.

Eureka High’s Hannah Long and Grant Fisher of Grand Blanc, Mich., are bound for Stanford in a couple of months. The pair gave the folks in Palo Alto, Calif., plenty of reason to be excited.
Long, a 13-time Missouri state champion, finished fifth in the elite 800 against the field of professionals. Her time of 2 minutes, 4.23 seconds, was her personal best by a bunch and the fastest time for a high schooler in the 800 this season. READ MORE from STL TODAY
