Subject: RE: Girls distance times for ivies
To be on the slower side of the Ivy recruiting spectrum you have to be able to help the coach meet their academic index number. (~2100 SAT, A/A- GPA)
If you're in that sort of academic range you can get real looks with times like these in your junior year:
Pure 800 Type: ~2:16 with ~59 second 400 speed
800/Mile: ~5:03 mile with ~2:17 800 speed (I agree with above comment that this will get you a look if you're smart)
3200/Mile: Sub 11:00 with ~5:10 Mile
Also big caveats:
1) You DON'T necessarily need great track times if you are a good cross country runner (place high in your state meet).
2) BIG ONE: If you started running your sophomore / junior year - OR - you're not a year-round runner (you only do track, or you only do cross), a lot of Ivy's will recruit people off sheer potential. If that's the case, you can actually be slower than the times I listed above.
