But ... I also see that you're a freshman. These were upper classmen.
Congratulations on the fine freshman times at both 800 and 1600, and

Just as an example. One of the best high school milers of recent memory J.
Riley from Brookline, MA ran not only the mile but also the 800 and the two
mile. When it was time for the All-States seinor year he ran the 800
because his coach felt quite correctly that it would help his speed the
following week at the nationals in the mile.
