Cain sets high school record in Portland

6/8/2013
 

One week after setting the American junior and high school record in the 800-meters, 17-year-old high school phenom Mary Cain established the American high school 5,000m record and grabbed the USA Outdoor Championships “A” standard Saturday at the Portland Track Festival.  Her time of 15:45.46 was good enough for sixth place.

Cain’s time betters Emily Sisson’s previous record of 15:48.91 that she set in 2010.

Karolina Jarzynska won the women’s 5,000m in a time of 15:25.52 while Treniere Moser was second in 15:35.96.

One week ago, competing at the Prefontaine Classic at Hayward Field, Cain became the first American junior or high school athlete to break two minutes in the 800m with her time of 1:59.51.
