Eighth grader, Rylee Bowen, was 2nd her heat in North Carolina at the New Balance Nationals Outdoor mile in 4:58.57.
Three HS seniors and two sophomores finished ahead of her.
That time is equal to a 1600 meter run in 4:56.84.
Only eight local high schoolers have ever bettered that time. And only two, both national high school champions, Julia Stamps and Sara Bei, have run faster as 9th graders.
