Bronxville High's Mary Cain never disappoints. The junior has just set two national indoor high school records, making history while running in the New Balance Games. The event was held on Saturday at the Armory in New York City.
Cain ran the Elite Mile event in 4:32:78, beating the old record of 4:38.5, according to MileSplit.us. That record had been held by Debbie Heald since 1972.
In addition, Cain's time was also under the time of the national outdoor record. Cain came in at 4:16:11, beating the record set by Polly Plumer back in 1982, which was 4:35:24. Quite a number of accomplishments for someone who actually finished the New Balance Games in third place this weekend.
On January 12, Cain ran six seconds faster than the national high school outdoor record, which has remained intact for 38 years, according to Armory Track. However, because the track was not regulation, the decades-old record still stands.
