In his first lifetime 1,500, Brady Shute ran a mile PR equivalent this past weekend.
Shute, a Cornell sophomore from Woodbury, placed 2nd in the 1,500 at the UConn Dog Fight in Storrs, Conn., in 3:54.56. That’s the equivalent of a 4:13.32 full mile.
Shute ran 4:16.76 full mile indoors in January in a meet at Ocean Breeze. His high school PR was 4:18.07 for 1,600 meters in a prime-time meet at Haddonfield in May of 2021, so this is the equivalent of a five-second PR and a 6 ½-second outdoor PR.
UConn sophomore Alex Sauter won the race in 3:53.55.
Shute was in 3rd place with 400 to go but closed in 59.48 to pass teammate Colden Longley and finish 2nd overall. Longley was 3rd in 3:54.64.
