February 3, 2018, New York, NY – Wagner Highschool’s men’s 4x 400 team put on a great performance at this years Millrose Games winning the PSAL 4×400, running 3:24.32. From start to finish Wagner dominated the race, but right on their heels was Benjamin Banneker running 3:24.73, and Dewitt Clinton running 3:25.72.
With the 4×400 being one of track and field’s highlight events, the Millrose PSAL 4×400 serves as a prequel of whats to come at the PSAL City Champs. From the looks of this race, we are in for a treat at this year’s City Champs as these teams battle it out for 4×400 dominance.
The big question on everyone’s mind right now is whether or not Wagner can repeat the same performance and hold off Benjamin Banneker to win the title as fastest 4×400 in the city.

MIDDLE VILLAGE N.Y. –It was one for the record books as Miami Country Day (Miami, Fla.) dominated Hamilton Heights Christian (Chattanooga, Tenn.) 81-55 in the DICK’S Sporting Goods High School Nationals championship game on Saturday.
From the start of the game, Miami Country Day took control of the game and didn’t let up, using their speed to overwhelm Hamilton Heights Christian. Despite Hamilton’s height and size advantage, they were no match for Miami’s speed and good old fashion text book basketball.
MIDDLE VILLAGE, N.Y. —La Lumiere (La Porte, Ind.) with an exciting 70-52 defeat of Montverde Academy (Montverde, Fla.) in the championship of the DICK’S Sporting Goods High School Nationals, takes the title as the best high school basketball team in the country.
Both teams had a slow start, and it looked like it would be a close game, going into halftime; the game could have gone either way. But at the start of the second half, La Lumiere came out and let it be known why they are ranked number one. La Lumiere with four players in double digits (Brian Bowen (27-1) with 15 points and seven rebounds, Jaren Jackson (17 points), senior guard Jordan Poole (13 points) and sophomore point guard Tyger Campbell (10 points, seven assists)), unleashed a beating on Montverde. Montverde put up a good fight but was just over matched by the La Lumiere offense. With just one player in double digits (Sophomore guard R.J. Barrett (26-5) with 25 points), just didn’t have the offensive to fight back against La Lumiere.
