@Coach_Hill 60 high and 66 low for Johnson. Impressed by the eight grader. I believe Pat Crandall had a mark of 2:04 for Robin Campbell as a high schooler at Florida Relays. Rivera was also impressive 24, 51, 1:18. I'm thinking he could go faster with some more races under his belt. He held off Millrose mile champ Josh Hoey who ran 4:08 indoors.

@ubiQuitous1 Robin Campbell does have the actual record at the Florida Relays for the 800 set in 1976 of 2:04.6. That is also the fastest 800 ever run by a Floridian. Campbell did run faster in HS but not while living/attending school in Florida. I assume that is a hand time, but even with the conversion, would still be faster than Caitlin Collier's 2:04.89 from last year. Fun trivia - Campbell was a 3 time Olympian. Moved to Gainesville to train with Brooks Johnson who was coaching at Santa Fe CC and her high school coach at Oak Hall was Dr Cade (inventor of Gatorade). Campbell also had the fastest 1500 ever run by a floridian (4:24 set at Penn Relays) but that record was broken last year by Collier's 4:19. And just for fun, Collier's anchor leg on the 4X800 yesterday was 2:03.0. 59.5 / 63.5
