Kingsway’s Stone Caraccio demolishes Gloucester County indoor mile record at Millrose!!!!!

Kingsway senior Stone Caraccio demolished the Gloucester County indoor mile record Saturday with a 4:15.35 at the 113th annual Millrose Games.

Caraccio broke the mark of 4:17.01 set by Clearview’s Bill Dolan at the 2014 Nationals on the same 168th Street Armory track in Washington Heights, N.Y.

Caraccio has run 4:13.46 outdoors for 1,600 meters, which is the equivalent of about a 4:14.93 full mile, so he wasn’t far off his outdoor PR on a 200-meter track.

Caraccio placed fifth in a field of 15 of the top scholastic milers in the country. He and CBA’s Shaw Powell were the only New Jersey runners. Powell was 9th in 4:17.79.

The 4:15.35 is No. 6 in South Jersey history, including converted 1,600 times [which goes against every track and field statistical rule ever but I did it anyway]:
