    Fischer, just an eighth grader, ran even splits throughout the eight-lap race and finished with her fastest lap of 1:22.

    In the end though, after an exhausted Fischer crossed the finish line, she barely missed the school record with her 12:37.73 time - just .45 seconds off Foree's mark, which will last at least another week.
