(8-22-22) In June Addy Wiley of Huntington North IN became the first girl in prep history to run under 4:30 for 1,600 meters with a time of4:26.16 and her mile equivalent was also well under the barrier.
Wiley’s time broke Alexa Efraimson’s 1,600-meter record of 4:33.29 at the 2014 Washington state meet.
Her converted mile time of 4:27.71 is superior to the 4:28.35 run by Mary Cain indoors in 2013 and also the 4:33.87 run by Katelyn Tuohy at New Balance Nationals Outdoor in 2018.
Since February 2021, Wiley has broken nine Indiana records.
Wiley was paced to her national record by Lauren Johnson, the Huntington University cross-country coach, who also coached Wiley this past summer.
Christmas came early for Huntington University cross country and track coaches when hometown running star Addy Wiley announced recently that she was de-committing from DI powerhouse Colorado to remain home to continue her college career.
For Wiley she avoids being a long way from home, having a coach she is comfortable with and less pressure on her competing at a D I school.
Huntington is a NAIA member and a member of the Crossroads Conference.
Wiley will compete in her first cross country meet for the Foresters on September 1st at Manchester.
From November 2021….
