* Barnett posing new to the Laguna Beach timing board after her record-run on Saturday
- - -
Mia Barnett is on a hot streak.
That's putting it lightly.
The Crescenta Valley (CA) High School senior clocked a new U.S. No. 1 time in the 3,200m on Saturday at the Laguna Beach Distance Carnival, producing a time of 9:52.23.
She was nearly a minute ahead of the field.
The performance marked her first time under 10 minutes for the distance and it is now No. 4 in California history, just behind Kim Mortensen (9:48.59), Bethan Knights (9:50.10) and Jordan Hasay (9:52.13).
She's also now just the eighth Californian to ever go under 10 minutes.
But Barnett is no stranger to the national rankings, having already owned the U.S. No. 1 time in the 1,600m and mile with her performances of 4:41.32 (en route) and 4:43.11 at the Sundown Track Series #3 on Mar. 27.
Barnett, a University of Virginia recruit, also ran a personal best time of 2:09.49 in the 800m on Mar. 20 at the Don Green Memorial Meet.
