On Jan. 30, Senior Drew Hunter ran a 7:59.33 for 3,000 meters at the Camel City Elite meet in North Carolina, becoming the first high school runner to break eight minutes at that distance. The very next week, on Feb. 6, Hunter broke another record, this time running a 3:58.25for the indoor one-mile, breaking fellow Virginian Alan Webb’s 15-year old record. After an undefeated cross-country season that culminated in a dominant victory at Foot Locker Nationals, there was no question that he was talented. But many were still unsure about his placement among the all-time greats. There’s no question now.
