Watch Race Video of Alexa Efraimson's 9:00.16 3K (Fastest HS Girls Time Ever At Distance) Brandon Miles Feb 4, 2014

Watch below the Flotrack race video in its entirely of the 9:00.16 3000 meter performance by Camas High School (WA) junior Alexa Efraimson from this past weekend's University of Washington Invitational, which is the fastest time ever run by a US high school female distance runner indoor or outdoor in the event. While the performance occurred on an oversized track at the Dempsey Indoor Facility in Seattle, Washington and thus cannot officially count towards an official high school indoor or US junior record with the high school 3K record still remaining with Melody Fairchild 17 seconds slower at 9:17.4 on a 200 meter track from 1991, the 2013 Nike Cross Nationals champion Efraimson did move ahead of another high school phenom in Mary Cain as the fastest high school runner ever at the 3K distance regardless of venue or conditions, who posted a 9:02.10 time last year as a junior at the University of Washington.
