LIVE COVERAGE BEGINS AIRING FROM APRIL 27-29
Inside Franklin Field last year, Gary Martin nearly made history at Penn Relays.
In his second outdoor meet of the season, the Archbishop Wood (PA) star lined up amongst the nation's best in the high school boys mile.
It was a race against the clock for Martin as he was able to separate himself early from the loaded field.
In the final 409m, the energy at Penn Relays rose as spectators and fans rose to their feet to bring him through the finish line in 4:01.04.
Even though Martin was just off his goal of dipping under four minutes in the mile, he shattered the Penn Relays meet record of 4:04.47 by Sean McGorty from 2013.
Later on in the spring, Martin became the 14th American high school athlete to break four minutes when he ran 3:57.98 at the Philadelphia Catholic League Outdoor Championships. He also clocked a high school best of 3:57.89 at the HOKA Festival of Miles just a few weeks later.
