Menlo School's Price runs to meet record in indoor track

 

Menlo School senior Maddy Price finished in the top three in three events, including a record-setting win in the 400-meter race of the Great Southwest Track and Field Indoor Classic on Saturday in Albuquerque, N.M.

With her time of 55.97 seconds, Price eclipsed the 400 previous-best of 57.63 set by Payton Miller last year. About an hour earlier, Price - despite being a newcomer to the event - won her 60-meter heat and took third overall with a time of 7.81.

"Running the 60 meters was a whole new experience for me, but it was very fun," Price said.

She wasn't done yet. Price had about a half-hour rest before her next race. She then went and placed second in the 200 in 25.23 behind only Ky Westbrook, last year's Youth Worlds champion in the 100 and who won the 60 this year.

"It was so awesome to get to run my first indoor meet at such an amazing track, and be able to have solid performances to open the season," Price said after the 200. "I have been training really hard this fall, and I can't wait to improve on the performances . . . in upcoming meets."
