In a meet which is suppose to showcase the best collegiates in the country, the few high school events contested at the Armory certainly stole the show at the New Balance Collegiate Invite on the first day of events on Friday. Two national records were set in two high school events, while US #3 all-time and US #4 all-time performances were recorded in two other events.
Robby Andrews, fresh off his Millrose mile victory, capped off an amazing seven days by breaking Alan Webb's 1000 meter national record by over a second in a dominating 2:22.28 performance.An incredible 1:52.3 last 800 meters helped the UVA bound senior from Manalapin High School (NJ) make history on Friday night.
The New Bern boys ran faster than the national record in the 4x400 last week, but on an oversized indoor track at East Tennessee State. The relay from North Carolina now has official possession of the national record after dipping under the old national record (3:13.34) on a 200 meter indoor track at the Armory with their 3:13.06 clocking.
