NEW YORK (AP) - Drew Hunter broke Alan Webb’s high school record in the indoor mile running a 3:58.25 at the Armory Track Invitational on Saturday.

Hunter, a senior at Loudoun Valley High School in Virginia, competed in the men’s mile won by 2012 NCAA champion Chris O’Hare (3:54.59).

Both Webb and now Hunter ran their sub-4 mile at the Armory. Webb became the first American high school student in indoor history to turn in a sub-4 minute mile with a 3:59.86 in 2001.

Hunter, who is headed to the University of Oregon next year, crossed the finish line with his arms raised, but had to wait a few seconds before confirmation on the scoreboard.

In two weeks both Hunter and O’Hare return to run in the 109th NYRR Millrose Games where they’ll compete in the mile again.
