Before most of the track and field universe shut down this week due to fears of the coronavirus, a few teams in the state of Utah competed one last time at the Snow Canyon Invitational in St. George on Friday. By the weekend, Utah's state association also declared a pause, registering a postponement on all competition until March 29. But it was here where Skyline's Thomas Boyden was able to set a new Utah state record in the 1-mile with a time of 4:05.16, surpassing Casey Clinger's former mark of 4:06.22, which he set in 2017. A Stanford University recruit, Boyden's season-opening career best time was 15 seconds faster than his top time from 2019 (4:20.32).And he's one of just seven athletes to run under 4:10 in Utah state history. - - - Utah Top 5 Milers In HistoryRANKTIMEATHLETE/TEAMGRADEMEET DATEPLACE14:05.16THOMAS BOYDENSkyline2020Snow Canyon Invitational1stMar 13, 2020 - Mar 14, 202024:06.22CASEY CLINGERAmerican Fork2017BYU High School Invitational1stMay 5, 2017 - May 6, 201734:07.95BEN SAARELPark City2013Utah State Track and Field Championships1stMay 17, 2013 - May 18, 201344:08.35PATRICK PARKERAmerican Fork2017Arcadia Invitational2ndApr 8, 2016 - Apr 9, 201654:08.77MCKAY JOHNSAmerican Fork2017Arcadia Invitational3rdApr 8, 2016 - Apr 9, 2016- - - Boys Mile Results From The Snow Canyon Invitational PLACEATHLETETEAMRESULTWINDH#1Thomas Boyden12Skyline4:05.1612Easton Allred12Corner Canyon4:14.7813Alex Harbertson12Corner Canyon4:21.3614Zarek Proffit12Snow Canyon4:22.2215Tim Bryan11Snow Canyon4:22.9716Logan Peel9Cedar4:23.8517Samuel Nelson11American Fork4:24.6618Daniel Larsen11Davis4:28.5719Hunter Stucki11Desert Hills4:29.95110Wyatt Teggins12Grantsville4:30.781
