Helena Middle School's Wetzel Sets New 6th Grade Mile Mark

Posted: Updated:

Helena Middle School sixth grader Kylie Wetzel set a new sixth grade city record for the mile with a 5:43 win. The previous record was held by Emily Nay in 1989 with a 5:59 mile. Wetzel fell six seconds off the record during her last meet, so smashing it by 16 seconds this time felt pretty good.


"I felt good, I was really nervous at first," said Wetzel. "I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to make my goal, but once the gun went off I felt really good during the race, and throughout the race."
