Ben Crawford photo at the finish line. New NCS record for Cooper Teare plus 2nd fastest time run by California HS runner. Only Tim Danielson's 3:59.4 in 1966 is faster. He will get at least one more opportunity this season at the Sacramento Meet of Champions which will have a mile there as part of the invitational portion of the meet.
Cooper's time surpasses Richard Kimball's 4:02.04 from 1974. Kimball started out as a freshman at Jesuit HS and then finished up his next three year's at De La Salle HS.
Also in the race were two NCS runners and Redwood HS teammates, Liam Anderson and Andrew Thomas. They finished with times of 4:16.14 and 4:18.69 respectively.
Also at Mt. Sac Relays, Rylee Bowen won the girls' mile in a time of 4:48.44 just in front of Anna Gibson of Jackson Hole at 4:48.48.
In the boys' 3200, Davis senior Michael Vernau finished in 2nd place with a time of 8:56.45.
