Perrin Makes History Yet Again, Runs Fastest Prep Mile
Flathead senior won the 1,600-meter race in 4:09.24 at a dual meet in Libby
Zach Perrin’s historic stride continues, and he’s now the king of the high school mile.

The Flathead senior distance runner won the 1,600-meter race in 4:09.24 at a dual meet in Libby on May 10. Perrin’s time was the fastest ever by a Montana prep in the high school mile. The previous best was 4:10.56, established by Flathead’s David Vidal at the 2001 Arcadia Invitational in California.

Perrin’s race was yet another remarkable achievement in an historic prep career. He already owns the fastest 3,200-meter times in state history, multiple state championships and the title of Montana Gatorade Track Athlete of the Year.

Now all that’s left is this weekend’s Western AA divisional in Helena, May 17-18, before the state meet in Bozeman, May 24-25.

Correction: Perrin's time was electronically timed, not hand timed as previously reported.
