High school track star Katherine Lee has broken another record. On Jan. 15, she broke the Suffolk indoor 3,000-meter record at the Art Mitchell Invitational at Suffolk County Community College in Brentwood.

Katherine, a junior, broke the record of 9:48 set by Mary Kate Anselmini of Ward Melville in 2011 by running the meter in 9 minutes and 37.77 seconds.

This is not the first time that Lee, who has been running varsity track since the seventh grade, has topped. This past fall, she broke the Suffolk County 5K record and last spring, the 3,000-meter Suffolk outdoor record.

“I was really happy,” said Katherine of her recent achievement. “It all just came together – I broke all the long distance records.”
