Southlake Carroll senior Reed Brown became the 10th U.S. high school runner in history to break 4 minutes in the mile Thursday night.
Brown is the first high school runner from Texas to accomplish the feat. Brown ran 3:59.30 to finish third in the pro men’s mile at the Festival of Miles in St. Louis.
“It’s pretty unreal, just to have your name up on a list with all the other great runners that have also broken 4:00,” Brown said by phone. “It’s just kind of an accomplishment I never thought would happen.”
