Paladino Fourth in Mile At Brooks PR Invitational

Amelia Paladino continued her strong performances in races against the nation's best, finishing fourth today in the mile at the Brooks PR Invitational in Seattle.

The recent graduate of University High School in Morgantown was clocked in 4 minutes, 46.69 seconds, narrowly missing her outdoor PR in a victory at this year's Penn Relays. Sarah Feeny of Utah backed up her triumph in last Saturday's Dream Mile with another win, covering the four-plus laps in 4:39.42, while Katie Rainsberger of Colorado was second in 4:41.07 and Anna Maxwell of California was third in 4:44.07.
