Ben Saarel wins Adidas Dream Mile May 25, 2013

  Ben Saarel of Park City has a ferocious kick, and used it to destroy the field in a come from behind win Saturday at the Adidas Dream Mile. It truly was an all-star pack, with 9 athletes in the field breaking 4:10.  Ben had to go toe to toe with the likes of Foot Locker Champ Edward Cheserek, Arizona’s Bernie Montoya, Henry Wynne and more. Saarel’s winning time of 4:02.72 is the fastest ever run by a Utah athlete in High School, beating out Brad Nye's 4:03.04 from last year.  The win caps off a fantastic season for Ben, in which he set the all classification state record in the 800, 1600, and 3200m, as well as winning every race he entered except for his 3rd place finish at Mt. Sac.  He will take his talents to University of Colorado this fall where he will be a contender for an NCAA title for years to come.
