I can’t embed it but this is scary. In what was touted as the big HS girls’ 1500 of the year with some of the top runners in the US, Mary Cain turned it into an exhibition. It’s almost the same way she won NY States in 2011 but faster and even more decisively, in both cases taking the race by the scruff of the neck with 400 to go and, well, going. She’s now going to Barcelona for the World Juniors (she was too young last year, when she was second in this race). Her 2:14.74 4:17.74 (thanks Ewen) is the second-fastest ever by a high-schooler. And she’s just finished her sophomore year.
