    It seems there have been quite a few low 2:00s so far, however.

      Sometimes.....Let's Run has interesting stuff on their MB.
      Like today, talking about Efraimson's 800, as well as her decision to turn Pro and not run in college, the person listed the top 3 Collegiate times so far----and Alexa's time beats them all!!
      Yep, she'd have the top Collegiate time so far this season!
      Plus, according to IAAF's newest list, she's in the top 10 on the WORLD list too!!
      (The IAAF list is OUTdoor only!!)

        She is not close to being the best younger-than-postgraduate 800m runner in the US, however.

        Also, in the 4x800 relay, there were several efforts that were essentially solo 2:00 or better, and being in 4x800 does not improve the time much and going solo makes it much harder. So, the 'no sub-2:00' is technically correct without being correct in the real content.

          BTW, that same poster on L-R's MB also listed the top 3 Collegiate times in the 1500., led by O'Connor's 4:11.04 and Houlihan's 4:11.06.
          Then he/she placed Efraimson's Mt SAC time of 4:09.43 alongside it!

          So in both the 800 and 1500, Efraimson's times surpass the best Collegiate times so far!!

            That's why she turned pro.

                Beat me to it!
                "Official" times were Almanza-1:59.35, and Diago-1:59.91.

                It's about time!!
                LOL

                  Well, yes and no; what was O'Connor's mile time and how does that relate to a mere 4:09?

                    You mean her INdoor 4:27.18?
                    Based on how fast she covered the final 109 meters, her 1500 time could have been anywhere from about 4:09.0 (final 109 meters in 18.18---slow!) to maybe 4:11.0 (16.18 last 109 meters).

                    For comparison, using INdoor races only, Mary Cain ran her final 109 in 17.48 in her 4:24.11.
                    Kim Conley was even slower in her 4:24.54, as she passed 1500 in 4:05.70, so her final 109 was just 18.84.

                    Two other examples are fairly interesting.
                    In that same Boston race (Cain's 4:24), Jordan Hasay was leading Abbey D'Agostino at 1500, 4:08.66 to 4:09.77 (INdoor CR for Abbey D!).
                    But Abbey ran her last 109 in 18.54---a slow finish!!---but Jordan was even slower, as her final 109 took 19.71.

                    Cain's best finish was in her 4:28.25 INdoor mile, when her final 109 took 16.53.
                    In Efraimson's 4:32.15 INdoor mile, she passed 1500 in 4:15.65, so her last 109 then was a good 16.50, about equal to what Cain had run the year before!
