At the Mobile Challenge of Champions, the youngest athlete of the field won the invitational 2 mile in 10:52.48. That would make Abby Merner, only a seventh-grader, the eighth-fastest runner in this event so far this outdoor season.
There were 780 votes tallied throughout the week. Merner accumulated 526 of them to earn about 67-percent of the vote.
Congratulations Merner on the incredible accomplishment at the Mobile Challenge of Champions.
