4:11.57. Second State Record Of The Indoor Season From Cameron Ponder


Furman commit and Mount Tabor Spartan Cameron Ponder got his second state record of the indoor track season.  Two weeks ago he broke the 1000 state record at the VA Showcase.  Today at Camel City Elite in the Men's Mondo Mile Ponder took 11th against a pro and collegiate field.

The race was won in a new facility record of 3:53.85 by Sketchers Pro Edward Cheserek.  The mark is also the fastest time ever on North Carolina soil in the event.

Ponder hung onto the back of the pack knowing the pace up front was going to be too fast for him.  He was out hard and at one point in the race starting to fade back off pace.  After falling off pace he was able to wake up and bounce back to break Kenny Kneisel's state record by .13 seconds!  The top 10 indoor 1600/Mile performances all-time is below.
