Glenbard West (IL) High sophomore Katelynne Hart was certainly in striking distance of a sophomore national class record in the 2-mile at the UK High School Indoor Invitational on Saturday.
But Hart came up just short, setting a new US No. 1 mark and new indoor career best of of 10:14.56 to down her previous facility record by nine seconds.
Hart, who finished second overall at Foot Locker Nationals and fourth at Nike Cross Nationals, was racing in her first indoor competition of the 2018 season.
She missed Saratoga Springs (NY) High junior Kelsey Chmiel's current sophomore record of 10:12.94, which the New York starlet achieved at New Balance Nationals Indoor last March.
