What is a average competitive high school mile time?

Competitive Varsity Mile times are anything under 4:30. You would think that's amazingly fast but I wouldent worry about it. At those speeds, a few seconds of time is a huge difference. Runners at the 4:30 mark are far behind those runners at the 4 minute to sub 4 range. This time is totally obtainable. As a freshman, I ran a mile in 4:56 and ended up only running 4:15's.
