Natalja Piliusina of the Brooks Beasts wins 800 at BU Last Chance meet...

BOSTON—Natalja Piliusina (left/photo by Paul Merca) of the Seattle-based Brooks Beasts won the 800 meter run at the Boston University Last Chance meet held at the campus’ Track & Tennis Center Sunday.

Piliusina, a native of Lithuania, and Oklahoma State University graduate, ran 2:02.96, to take the victory over Stephanie Brown’s 2:05.75, but was disappointed that she did not get the IAAF standard of 2:02.50.

The hashtag #armory refers to the last chance meet on March 4th at the Armory in New York, which is being billed as a last chance meet to get the standard (US athletes who finish in the top 2 at the USA championships in Portland on February 12-13th will not advance to the world championships unless they have the IAAF standard by March 7th).

Rainier Beach HS grad Michael Berry won the men’s 400 in a time of 46.09, well under the IAAF standard of 46.70.

Complete results of the Boston University Last Chance meet are available here.
