Julian Oakley (Providence), Alex Wallace (New Balance) and Olivia Burne (Stony Brook) all ran the mile at the Boston University last chance meet on Saturday.
Oakley, for the second time in a month, finished less than a second outside the four minute mile barrier. Placing third in the fastest heat with a personal best of 4:00:50. This is the third time Julian has run under 4:01 in the past 12 months.
Wallace, who ran 4:03 a month ago, finished fourth in heat two with a time of 4:04.68.
Burne beat her previous mile best by two seconds placing fourth in the Women’s mile. Her time of 4:36:22 places her with an outside chance of qualifying for the NCAA Indoor Championships and follows from two previous outings at Boston University this season where she ran 4:38 on both occasions.
