Ryan Riordan profiles Beaver Falls track standout Dom Peretta.
"Beaver Falls was missing one of its 3,200-meter runners at the Beaver County Invitational April 12, so Tigers coach St. Clair Williams decided to throw Dom Peretta into the race.
It was the last race of the day for Peretta, who had already won the 800 and 1,600 meters at the event.
So Williams told him to take the first mile slow and then give whatever he had left on the second mile.
Peretta had enough to win the event in 10:16."
