Auburn seventh-grader Abby Merner had quite the weekend. She ran Alabama's all-time fastest performance at 1,600 meters for a seventh-grader, checking in at 5:04.59.
That puts her at No. 12 all-time on the seventh-grade charts, too.
The Auburn junior high runner recently competed in her area Junior High Championship before bumping up to varsity competition this weekend to run the 1,600m and 3,200m.
She now holds the record for the fastest 1,600m run by a seventh-grader in the state of Alabama. She currently sits at Alabama No. 4 this season.
