Winslow wins Millrose Games girls 1,600 relay with U.S. #10 3:52 at the Armory!

Junior Flora Ahiarakwe’s sub-57 second leg gave Winslow the lead for good and the Eagles won the suburban girls 1,600-meter relay Saturday at the 110th annual Millrose Games at the 168th Street Armory.

Senior  Iyianna Williams led off for Winslow with a 59.34 leg and handed off to Ahiarakwe about two steps behind North Rockland. But Ahiarakwe took the lead, and freshman Janeya and junior Shakira Dancy held it with carries of 58.92 and 57.08.

North Rockland finished second in 3:53.92.

Winslow’s time is No. 10 in the U.S. this year and North Rockland is No. 12. The former indoor school record was a 3:57.05 last year at New Balance nationals.

Overall, Winslow’s time from Millrose is No. 14 in state history and No. 4 in South Jersey history, fastest by a South Jersey school in 14 years — since Willingboro ran 3:45.57 in 2003. That stood as the state record for 10 years.

Winslow’s time also breaks the Camden County record of 3:52.55, set by Woodrow Wilson in 2006.
