Sammy Watson sets new U.S. High School record in the 1,000m

A brilliant indoor season continues for Sammy Watson of Rush-Henrietta High School as the senior ran 2:43.18 to set a new U.S. high school record and advance to the 1,000 meter finals.

The previous record was held by Sarah Bowman 2:43.40 in February 2005.

Back in 2014, a 17-year-old Mary Cain clocked a 2:35.80 but was a professional with Nike at the time so it is not listed as a U.S. high school record.

Watson’s time was the fifth fastest of the day.

If you’re keeping up with Watson’s indoor campaign, she’s set high school indoor records in the 600m (1:27.13), 800m (2:01.78) and now 1,000m.
