* Race video of Brodey Hasty going 8:00.92 in the 3K at Music City
- - -
Brentwood (TN) graduate Brodey Hasty made a late switch at the Music City Distance Carnival.
Instead of running in the boys mile, where earlier he was matched up against some of his best peers in high school, the future Oregon Duck tried to take a swing at the 3K.
And the decision yielded a high return.
Hasty ran the second fastest 3K outdoors all-time and the third fastest -- indoors or outdoors -- across all surfaces on Saturday, posting a time of 8:00.92.
Only German Fernandez, of Riverbank (CA), has run faster outdoors -- and under eight minutes. He went 7:59.83 in 2008 at the CIF championships. Indoors, only Drew Hunter, of Loudoun Valley (VA), has run faster. He went an all-time record of 7:59.33 in 2016.
Hasty is entered in the Brooks PR boys mile on June 8.
