Sarah Baxter's performance takes me back to 1975, featuring a much anticipated duel between Thom Hunt of Patrick Henry HS and Eric Hulst of Laguna Beach HS. Both were seniors and Hulst had been running sub-9 minutes consistently in the 2-mile ever since he was a sopre. Hulst and Hunt ran neck and neck the whole way over the old 2-mile course and it came down to a kickdown in the final chute. Hunt won it, but it was one of the most amazing races I'd ever seen.
