How untouchable is the girls 4x800m relay national record from 2008 by Greenbelt Roosevelt (Md.) High?  

Nine years ago, the team put together a time of 8:43.12 -- an average of 2:10.9 per leg -- and that effort has stood since. 

It seems to be the kind of performance that might take a herculean performance to overcome -- and just the right team on the track. 

Over the past seven seasons, the girls 4x800m relay has found a sweet spot in the national rankings, sitting somewhere between a range of 8:50.58-8:59.03.

Last year, Shenendehowa (NY) High became the fastest team in five seasons to run 8:50.58, but history says the Shen girls will need to cut a little bit more time to make a national record happen. Fortunately, good teams that return talent often have a great chance at returning to the national rankings. 

Fayetteville-Manlius (NY) had a three-year stretch from 2009-2011 where it found itself in the top five of the national leaderboard. Two other teams in the past seven years -- Grosse Point South (MI) and Columbia (NJ) -- have had at least two straight seasons in the top five, while two more schools have found success two times over a three-year period -- Western Branch (Va.) and Suffern (NY).
