Has a HS team ever had 4 milers that went under 4:10 in a single race? Does this achievement compare more favorably to 4 runners under 9:00, ceteris parabis?
I would say that 4 milers under 4:10 is slightly more impressive than 9:00. Newbury Park has 4 under 9:00 right now: 8:43, 8:43, 8:55, 8:56.
Their top 4 1600 times: 4:08. 4:10, 4:12, 4:14.
Doesn't appear Colin has ran an all out mile, so throw a 4:06 or something in there. Lex can run faster than his 4:12, thinking maybe 4:08 range. Leo could probably bring that 4:10 to a 4:09 if he raced it more.
That's a bunch of what ifs, but that team could have both if they wanted. I think you can go back and find some other teams with 4 sub 9, maybe CBA or Great Oak or something, can't name an exact year off the top of my head. Maybe there is, maybe there isn't. I doubt there a team with 4 sub 4:10
They all ran sub 4:10 at Music City
