What can't Ellie Shea do?
Already this season Shea broke the national high school sophomore class record in the mile with a 4:40.01 and moved up to No. 10 on the all-time list.
This weekend, Shea had another all-time best performance up her sleeve.
At the Boston University Last Chance Meet, she first lined up to compete in the 800m where she stopped the clock at 2:08.59.
Just about 2 hours later, she laced up once again and ran the fastest 3K in the country in 9:08.54. This was her first time running this distance indoors and it was faster than the 3K she ran during the 2021 season at the USATF New England Mini Meet #3 where she crossed the finish line in 9:30.64.
Her indoor performance became the fifth-fastest all-time high school girls 3K ever recorded.
Looking specifically into the sophomore class history, she's the second-fastest girl behind Katelyn Tuohy's 9:05.26 from 2018.
Currently, Shea is the fastest sophomore in the 800m, 1500m, mile, and 3K and is US No. 1 in the mile and 3K respectively.
