For those that don' remember, O'toole almost beat Manzano in highschool at the Adrian Martinez Invitiational to run a 4:01.89
I think this is O'toole's first sub 4 mile equivalent, could be wrong.
In a post-race interview with Ryan Fenton on milesplit, Hunter called his run very "average" and a "so-so" performance. He said he was proud of the fact he fought the last 100.

Why can't the best high schooler in the country win races? He seems to get a lot of press, but is always mid pack in his competitions.
So Hunter beats a bunch of studs, runs one of the fastest 1500s ever (only he, Ryun and Webb have run faster), and the thread title is about the two guys that beat him? Pretty messed up priorities.

I'm almost 70 and wear my hat on backwards periodically.
It keeps the sun off my neck, and sometimes I just want it that way.
However, Hunter doesn't look healthy in that photo.
Could he be the first high schooler to have a season where none of his miles (or converted 1500s) is over 4:00?
