Anyone hear about the shattered National Records in girl’s high school track and field over the weekend?  

Alexa Efraimson ran a 4:33.29 in the 1600m making her the fastest American high school miler of all time.  http://usa.milesplit.com/articles/129530-alexa-efraimson-4-3329-national-record-for-1600#.U40h0fldV8E  – This is an amazing time, but there should possibly be an asterisk next to this time.  Mary Cain, also a senior decided to go Pro as a senior in high school.  Since then Mary Cain is the only high school aged female to break the 4:30 mile!!  http://bringbackthemile.com/athletes/detail/mary_cain – Watch for Mary Cain in the 2016 Olympics.  I can imagine Alexa going to be on the short list for team USA in 2016 as well.   

On another note, we have a lot of talent in Morris County, NJ (where I coach).  Keep an eye out for Mount Olive’s Keturah Orji who has shattered every long and triple jump record in New Jersey.  All year she has been ranked top 3 in the nation and that’s including collegiate marks!  I wouldn’t be surprised if we see her make Team USA some day!
