The grittiest performance of Lexy Halladay’s freshman season came in the Girls’ Dream Mile at the adidas Boost Boston Games on June 2 in Somerville, Mass.
That victory against some of the nation’s top high school mile runners continued to pay dividends Wednesday.
The Mountain View High standout was named to the 2017 MileSplit All-American high school distance first team thanks to her nation-leading mile time of 4 minutes, 41.80 seconds.
“These are the best of the best based on head-to-head racing, times, postseason performances and consistency,” MileSplit said on its website.
Never miss a local story.
Halladay’s mile time is the 27th fastest in U.S. high school history, according to MileSplit.com.
The reigning cross country, 3,200 and 1,600 5A state champion will be a sophomore for the Mavericks this fall.
