Mountain View senior runs fastest indoor mile in Idaho history

STATESMAN STAFFJanuary 26, 2014 

NAMPA — Mountain View High’s Sam McKinnon became the first female runner in Idaho high school history to run the indoor mile in less than 5 minutes, Mavericks coach Tracy Harris said. McKinnon, an Oregon State commit, won the race in 4 minutes, 59.25 seconds Saturday at the New Balance Boise Indoor Invitational.

On Friday, Pocatello’s Elijah Armstrong clocked the fastest 2-mile time in the nation for a high school boy this season, winning his race in 9:08.60. Timberline’s Andrew Rafla finished third in the same race — and recorded the third-fastest time in the nation — with his time of 9:10.23.
