Armwood senior Brandon Duncan recorded another personal record in the 1,600-meter run, clocking 4 minutes, 21.69 seconds to take third place in Saturday’s All-Star Showdown at Melbourne Holy Trinity.

Duncan, a district champion and regional runner-up in the event, was poised to run a lifetime best at last week’s Class 3A state track finals in Jacksonville but was knocked down just before the halfway mark of the 1,600. This time, Duncan kept his feet to slice nearly two more seconds off his PR. Lake Brantley senior Otniel Teixeira was the winner in 4:19.07 and Billy Anguish of Winter Park was second in 4:20.84.

Hawks coach Chris Biernacki says Duncan will likely run the 1,600 again before the end of the school year at another invitational similar to Saturday’s meet.
