Wagner Wins Men’s Millrose PSAL 4×400

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.

4×800 World Record Run At 2018 Millrose Games

February 3, 2018, New York, NY – The USA women’s 4×800 team(Ajee Wilson, Crishuna Williams, Raevyn Rogers and Charlene Lipseyteam) ran 8:05.89 to set a new world record at this year’s Millrose Games. This record replaces the 8:06.50 record set by the Russian team in 2011.

From start to finish the USA team dominated the race. After the second leg, there was no question who was going to win the race. The only question on everyone’s mind was are they going to break the record.  As Ajee Wilson got the baton on the anchor leg an pulled away from the competition everyone was on the edge of their seats.   As Wilson came down the backstretch of the final lap you knew she was on pace to break the record or damn near come close. At this point, the crowd was on their feet cheering Wilson on. Comming off the turn with the finish line in sight there was a brief moment where the only sound you heard was the announcer’s voice counting out the seconds until Wilson hit the tape, then the crowd went wild. The cheering was so deafening I bet it was heard several blocks away from the Armory.
