The 2017 Middle School Mile
It's shaping up to be another great competition in this year's Youth Runner Middle School Mile for the boys and it could be a show down between Ben Balazs of Portland and Drew Oliver of Seattle. Ben's time coming into the meet is 4:47.65 and Drew's time is 4:49. The third seed time is from Misha Cheek of Santa Rosa, CA. in 4:54. Fourth seed time is Adrian Tafolla. We haven't seen Misha or Adrian but we have seen Logan Law-4:55 so this could be anyone's race. There are other competitors coming in from California and Washington.
At last years middle school mile Matti Erickson ran a meet record in 4:32.47. Here are the higlights from that race.
