Watch video of Smulder's sub 4:00 Mile
Everett Smulders joined the sub four-minute Mile Club clocking a 3:58.93 at the Razorback Invitational today. This feat puts him amongst the most elite collegiate milers for former Georgia high schoolers as he is the 4th Georgian ever to break that barrier which includes Brandon Lassiter (Norcross), Tripp Hurt (North Oconee), and Sam Ellis (Decatur). It also needs to be mentioned that Ben Hubers (McEachern grad) went 3:59.83 indoors back in January of 2013 and Ralph King (St Pius grad) went 3:39.83 outdoors in the 1500m way back in May 1978 converting to a 3:57.42 Mile. Smulders' three-second PR propelled him to becomes the fourth Rebel to ever break the 4-minute barrier indoors! In high school, Everett was a Four-year letter winner in track at The Lovett School ... while also earning three cross country letters, two varsity basketball letters, and played football his freshman year! He set school records in 800-meter (1:53.47), 1600-meter (4:15.18), mile (4:18.57), and 3200-meter (9:27.01) and won the 2016 and 2017 state championship in 800-meter and 1600-meter runs while also being the starting point guard of the varsity basketball team.
