Douglas High’s Lindsey Adams ran 5:05.72 in the high school girls mile on Saturday at the Stanford Invitational track and field meet in Palo Alto, Calif.
Adams placed second in her heat and 16th overall against a high caliber field that included entrants from California, Montana, Pennsylvania and Nevada.
The senior placed seventh in the event’s second section with a time that stands as a personal record and the fastest ever at Douglas for one mile (9.3 meters longer than 1,600).
Adams is the two-time Northern Division I region champion for 1,600 meters and ran 5:02.35 to place third in the 1,600 at last year’s state meet.
Christina Aragon of Billings Senior High (Mont.), was the overall winner in 4:53.75. Aragon, whose father, Chuck, ran a best of 3:51 for one mile at the 1984 Dream Mile (Oslo, Norway), is undefeated at 1,600 meters in three high school seasons.
A total of seven runners ran faster than 5 minutes overall in the Stanford meet’s three sections.
Adams will travel this coming weekend to Southern California to run at the Arcadia Invitational. She is entered in the girls mile at 4:30 p.m. on Friday and the 800 meters on Saturday at 1:04 p.m.
