At the Nassau Coaches meet on Saturday, April 30 Paul D. Schreiber Varsity Track athlete Richard Schmitz won the 1600 in 4:26 and came back an hour later to win the two-mile in 9:48. He was awarded a watch for winning both races. Richard came within 1.5 seconds of the Schreiber school record. The meet featured dozens of teams from all over Nassau and Suffolk Counties. It is a high profile invitational meet that attracts Long Island's best runners.

Track Coach Jeremy Klaff said, "What is so remarkable about Richard's performance was not only that he had the fastest times, but his extraordinary ability to come back on a short-rest period to run such an impressive second two-mile race. His ability to recoup is certainly one of his strongest attributes.
