The Extra Point sits down with Webster track runner David Lambus
One year ago, Webster junior track runner David Lambus received support from his high school coach, James Crowe, while he competed in track meets as an individual competitor. Lambus said he won races as an individual, but the victories didn’t feel as special compared to winning races for Webster.
The self-proclaimed “Golden Stallion” now leads the pack and has broken six Webster track records.
Lambus said he loves to be part of a team and to help each other out in meets.
“I love being with the team and everything,” Lambus said. “I’m helping the team a lot and they’re helping me. It’s a really good feeling.”
Lambus’ first record-breaking performance was a second place finish in the mile run at the Jim Green Invitational with a time of 4:29.26.
Lambus finished second in the 1,500 meter run at the Washington University Invitational and set a Webster record with a time of 3:56.11.
This past weekend, Lambus won the 5,000-meter run at the Greenville Selects, as he beat the field by over 15 seconds. He set a new Webster record (15:28.41) for the 5,000-meter run.
