Mary Cain, who ran an unbelievable 9:02.10 for 3000m at the University of Washington Indoor Preview last weekend, will try to break yet another another indoor prep record at the 2013 New Balance Games in New York, New York.
Cain will toe the line against the professionals in the Elite Mile in an attempt to break Debbie Heald’s national high school indoor mile record of 4:38.5 set way back in ’72. This is the oldest standing girls’ high school record in track and field.
However, the professionals won’t go quietly into the New York night. The field will also include former NCAA champion Sarah Bowman, Australian Olympian Genevieve LaCraze, and Saucony’s Nicole Sifuentes.
Cain is the high school record holder at 1500m after her 4:11.01 at the World Junior Championships last year. However, her race at UW converts roughly to 4:33 for the mile via Jack Daniels’ VDOT calculator.
If you want to watch the best middle-distance running in high school history attempt to shatter this once “unbreakable” record, you can watch the 2013 New Balance Games LIVE on Flotrack Pro.
