Amelia Paladino of University High must like running at the Spire Institute in Ohio.
A year after breaking 5 minutes in the 1,600-meter run for the first time on the 300-meter oval, Paladino ran a US#3 clocking of 4 minutes, 46.41 seconds to finish second to Brianna Schwartz, a Pennsylvania standout and fellow Foot Locker All-American. Schwartz crossed the line in 4:42.10.
Paladino's effort converts to a 4:48.07 for the mile and is US#5.
MORE TO COME.
