UW Alum Sayenko Finishes 14th At NYC Marathon
Former Husky Mike Sayenko, a 2006 graduate and native of Bellevue, Wash., finished 14th today at the New York Marathon, one of the world's premier races.
Sayenko, a Sammamish High alum, has developed into one of the top marathoners in the world over the past few years, and was the eighth-best American finisher today in New York, running a personal-best time of 2-hours, 16-minutes, and 38-seconds. American Meb Keflezighi won the race in 2:09:15, becoming the first American man to win the race in 27 years.
At UW, Sayenko ranks fifth on the school's all-time 10,000-meter list with a time of 29:07. In his last cross country season in 2006, he was 65th at the NCAA Championships, helping UW to a 12th-place finish, its best finish since 1993. He became the first Husky since 1992 to run at three NCAA XC Championships. In November of 2007, Sayenko was 29th at the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials.
