Stegall Lowers Mile Record
Nolensville Sophomore Claire Stegall has raced sparingly since the end of cross country but in her two indoor efforts this season has broken the state record for the mile each time that was previously held by Jenna Hutchins at 4:45.12. She first did so a month ago at Eastern Indoors running 4:44.25 and on Sunday at New Balance Nationals Indoor placing 4th overall with a 4:42.25. Stegall now holds the record for indoor and outdoor for the distance. Fellow sophomore Abby Faith Cheeseman placed 20th in the same event on Saturday running a TN #3 All-Time Mark of 4:51.58. The previous day she finished 10th in the 2 miles just missing her state record time by one second running 10:15.
Nike Indoor Nationals
McCallie Break Eight
At Nike Indoor Nationals, McCallie ran every distance based relay they offered entering in the DMR, 4x800m, and 4xMile. Even though they dropped the baton in the 4x800m relay, they were still able to become the first team indoors to run under the eight-minute mark placing 5th with a time of 7:56.28. The foursome of Jack Bowen, Garrison Corley, Hugh Carlson, and Evan Simpson then doubled back and placed 3rd in the 4xMile with a time of 17:37.37. The DMR placed sixth with Kavan Reynolds in for Corley.
