Mikey Scott ’11 Crushes Alaska Ironman
Michael Scott ’11 crushed it.
The University of Michigan graduate — and star on Staples’ 2009 state championship team, known for (among other things) his sizzling long throw-ins — finished Juneau’s Ironman Alaska yesterday in an astonishing 10 hours, 18 minutes and 48 seconds.
He ignored stunning views to swim 2.4 miles in Auke Lake in 36:33. He biked 112 miles along the Glacier Highway in 9:49.09. Then he ran 26.2 miles through the lush Mendenhall Valley rainforest in 3:29:42.
That was good (great!) for 23rd place, out of 733 competitors — and 3rd out of 36, in his men’s age 25-29 age group.
Congratulations, Mikey. Now take a well=deserved rest!
