|Subject: ||RE: 7th grade miler Runs 4:55|
4:55 DOES happen in middle school, but it's not VERY common, AND the OP was talking about a 7th grader.
1) Your first link didn't have anyone who ran 4:55.
2) The second link had one kid who did, but he was in 8th grade.
3) The third link had three, but they were all in 8th grade.
4) Don't need to compare everyone to Jordan Hasay, especially boys. At about 7th grade is when boys finally begin to overtake the girls.
When my daughter was in 8th grade, I went to all of her meets, and in one I saw one kid run 4:52 (8th grader) and in one other BIG meet, three kids went 4:42, 4:42, 4:43, and all were in 8th grade. I didn't see any other boy run 4:55 or faster.
So, is 4:55 for a 7th grade boy good? Yep. Does it show great things to come? Not necessarily.

4:55 is a fairly common middle school boys time. Case in point: pretty average MS invitationals in Ohio...
Jordan Hasay ran 1500m 4:28.61 and 3000m 9:35.12 while in middle school and she is a girl.
