Not many high school runners can say they took down a professional field, let alone, in their outdoor season debut. 

But not many runners are Sadie Engelhardt

While running in the professional women's 1,500m on Saturday evening at The TEN in San Juan Capistrano, California, the Ventura junior remained close in contact with the pacer and leaders. 

Once the pacer stepped off the track, Engelhardt led the pack through 2:12 at 800m. Eventually, Nike's Lauren Gregory took control of the race at the bell but the high school athlete responded and challenged her. 

Engelhardt made a bold move as she decided to charge the last 120m to win in 4:09.70, scoring the No. 6 all-time mark for the distance. 

Engelhardt was just a few days removed from winning the mile at New Balance National Indoor and breaking Juliette Whittaker's meet record. 

Now with her standout performance, Engelhardt becomes the sixth girl in high school history to break 4:10 at this distance. 

Gregory settled for second with a time of 4:10.03 and Tracksmith's Jenn Randall was third in 4:11.49.
