Gary Martin Sub 4 Like Jim Ryun, Katelyn Tuohy 4:06, Go Pro Early?

1 month ago

Pennsylvania high schooler Gary Martin did something that had only been done once before, by Jim Ryun in 1965, go sub 4 in the mile in a high school race without a rabbit.

Former prep phenom Katelyn Tuohy blasted a 4:06 1500m, Maria Garcia Romo blasted NCAA record holder Eliud Kipsang at SECs in the 1500, Yared Nuguse's NCAA career is over, there were some amazing sprint performances at the conference meets, and DII star Christian Noble turned some heads by not only turning pro before NCAAs, but also signing as a male with New Balance.

We break it all down and discuss whether Newbury Park XC was the best high school team ever in any sport and whether Matthew Centrowitz, Donavan Brazier, or Jenny Simpson are in trouble.
