Simpson (4:00.98) won her third straight DL race while Centro missed out on the win by .10 as Ayanleh Souleiman repeated in the Bowerman Mile (3:51.10). Efraimson broke Mary Cain's HS/U.S. Junior record by running 4:03.39.

Alexa Efraimson has displaced Mary Cain as the queen of American high school running and she's the prom date of sub-4 miler Matthew Maton.
