Nick Foster posted an exceptional time of 4:08.16 to claim the 1600m race win at Saturday's April Showers Relays, which took place in Dexter. The Ann Arbor Pioneer junior resides on top of the Michigan leaderboard due to this effort and his result also represents a new pr and a US No. 2 for the 2018 outdoor season. He finished eleven seconds ahead of the state's No. 2 ranked 1600m athlete, Anthony Dekraker of Saline. Foster, who trails only New Mexico's Jericho Cleveland (4:07.89) in the overall national standings, is the top ranked junior in the country.
