SOMERVILLE, Massachusetts—University of Washington alum Eleanor Fulton (left/photo by Mike Scott)  continued her consistent running, as she finished third in the 1500 at the first night of competition at the adidas Boost Boston Games Friday night at Dilboy Stadium.

Fulton ran 4:12.80, as Emily Lipari took the win in 4:12.32, followed by Arkansas alum and 2016 South African Olympian Dominique Scott in 4:12.48.

On Thursday night, Fulton set a personal best in the mile at the Adrian Martinez Classic in nearby Concord, running 4:30.34 in finishing second to Nicole Tully. In that race, Fulton nearly set her personal best in the 1500, as she split 4:12.53, just off of her personal best of 4:12.43, set on May 18th at the USATF Distance Classic in Los Angeles.

In other events involving Washington affiliated athletes, Washington State alum Jeshua Anderson was fifth in the 400 hurdles, as he ran 49.88.  Michael Stigler took the win in a time of 48.69.  New Zealand's Angie Petty, who is now being coached by Beasts TC coach Danny Mackey, was fifth in the women's 800 in 2:01.73, as Charlene Lipsey won in 1:59.57.

The adidas Boost Boston Games continues Sunday, with several events contested on a special elevated straight track constructed on Charles Street near Boston Common. The meet will be televised on NBCSN (Channel 626 on Comcast Seattle) at 1 pm, pacific, and on the NBC Sports Gold track & field package ($).
