When Andrew Marinelli crossed the finish line in the 1500-meter event at the CIAC Decathlon competition on Wednesday June 13, 2017 at Manchester High School, it marked the end of several things.
For Marinelli, it marked both the end of a two-day grueling 10-event competition as well as the end of his Notre Dame athletic career, where he he ran track and played soccer for four years. It also was the final athletic competition in the 2017-18 school year for any Notre Dame student-athlete.
It was the second straight year Marinelli competed in this event. While his goal was to finish in the top 10, a 12th place showing and beating his result from 2017 are great accomplishments. Marinelli placed 24th in 2017.
“I am extremely proud of Andrew,” said head track and field coach Glenn Xavier. “He trained well for this competition and to finish 12th among the 62 who entered is a testament to his God-given athletic ability, hard work, training, and dedication to his craft. It was a great two days for ND Track.”
Marinelli saved his best event for last as he placed second in the 1500-meter run finishing in 4:39.75. He had three other places in the top 15. He placed 12th in the pole vault clearing 8-06.25.
He also ran 13th in both the 110 high hurdles (18.23) and the 400-meter run (54.33) and placed 16th in both the 100-meter dash (12.12) and the high jump (clearing 5-04.25).
