Yesterday, the nation’s fastest high school runners convened in Seattle for the inaugural Brooks Sports PR Invitational. Held at the University of Washington’s Dempsey Indoor Track, the Brooks PR Invitational gave these athletes the rare opportunity to compete against each other and chase their personal records at one of the fastest indoor tracks in the nation. Lots of personal records were broken, and many of this year’s fastest high school times in the nation were produced, including the 5th fastest run of all time in the Girls’ 60M dash.

Some of the highlights:
• 6 of the nation’s fastest high school times this year in these events: Girls 60M dash, Girls 400M, Girls Mile, Girls 2Mile, Boys 60M, and Boys 400M.
• 7 of the nation’s second fastest high school times this year in these events: Girls 60M Hurdles, Girls 400M, Girls 800M, Girls 2Mile, Boys 60M, Boys Mile, Boys 2Mile.
• In addition, the top eight finishers in the girls 2Mile were all faster than the previous national leader in the event. Sophomore Wesley Frazier (Raleigh, NC) took the lead with an amazing final stretch run to finish with a time of 10:17.46, just edging out the number 2 finisher Kayla Beattie (Woodstock, IL) at 10:17.93.
• In the Girls 60M, Dezerea Bryant (Milwaukee, WI) ran the 5th fastest time ever by a high school athlete, clocking-in at 7.26
• Ajee Wilson (Neptune, NJ), who is currently the national leader in the 800M, claimed the number 1 spot in the US for the mile as well, clocking in at 4:49.48

You can see all of the results on ESPN Rise and video from the meet on Flotrack.
