1) Some thought Grant Fisher was unbeatable at the high school level. He did not lose a race for the entirety of his junior and senior seasons . . . until June 20, 2015. With 400m left in the Brooks PR 2 Mile, Fisher and junior Drew Hunter separated themselves from the field. Either the favorite would win or the young Hunter would shock the masses. With 200m to go, Fisher attempted to make a move by going around Hunter on the outside. Hunter held him off there and the rest of the final curve before dropping Fisher on the final homestretch. Hunter ran a US #9 all-time with his 8:42.51, proving that Fisher can be beat by a fellow US high schooler.

2) Candace Hill crushed the 100m National Record at Brooks PR Invitational with a 10.98. The sophomore is the first high school girl to break 11 seconds in the 100m, beating the previous NR by .12 (Kaylin Whitney, 11.10). Hill also set the American Junior Record, a World Youth Best and #10 in the World this year. For comparison, her 10.98 would rank #8 All-Time in the NCAA 100m. This simply was the most impressive national record on paper.

1) Grant Fisher becomes the seventh American high schooler to break four minutes in the mile. He ran a U.S. No. 3 All-Time mark of 3:59.38, exactly what Matthew Maton ran earlier this spring. 2015 marks the first year that two different American high schoolers broke 4:00 in the full mile in the same year.

2) On June 6, 2015 Vista Murrieta's Michael Norman arguably ran the best sprint triple in US high school sprint history. A day after running 200m, 400m, and 4x100m prelims at the California State Meet, the junior came back the next day to run U.S. No. 6 all-time in both the 200m and 400m running 20.30 and 45.19. To put the cherry on top of this historic day, Norman split 44.9 on his 4x400m anchor leg to bring his team from 7th to 3rd and help them solidify Vista Murrieta's first ever overall team state title.
