We didn't have a great photo of Sadie during her 1600m but we had this one from last fall at the VCYTC XC Championships.
SIXTH GRADER SADIE ENGELHARDT RUNS A SUB-5 MINUTE MILE
Sadie Engelhardt, 12, from Ventura, California, shattered a seventeen year-old meet record at the VCYTC Championships on Saturday with a blazing 4:59 in the Girls Youth 1600 Meter run. Engelhardt, a 6th grader at Cabrillo Middle School, runs for the Ventura Tigres. Breaking the 5-minute barrier had been Engelhardt’s goal for the season. “I was hitting my splits so I knew I was going to do it,” Engelhardt said after the race. She plans on competing in the USATF National Junior Olympic Track and Field Championships later this summer.
