This Day in Track & Field – Webb Breaks Ryun’s H.S. Mile Record

The speculation about Webb’s potential started to build after he ran 4:06.94 in 1999 to break Ryun’s National H.S. sophomore record. It continued the following year when he ran a 3:59.9 anchor 1600-meters at the Penn Relays, but an injury kept him from any serious efforts to break 4-minutes the rest of the season (he had to turn down an invitation to the 2000 Pre meet). An early sign in his senior year that everything was going according to plan came at NY City’s Armory in February, when he set a H.S. indoor record of 3:59.86 and became the first prep 4-minute miler since Marty Liquori ran 3:59.8 in 1967.
