Paul VI girls run 9th-fastest time in S.J. history in blazing Millrose Games 4-by-400!!!!!

What a race by Paul VI at Millrose!

The PVI girls, led by senior Aliya Rae Garozzo, ran 3:53.81 to place second in the Private School Girls 1,600-Meter Relay Saturday at the 113th Annual Millrose Games at the Armory.

That’s No. 8 in South Jersey history, fastest ever by a South Jersey non-public school and makes PVI the second-fastest non-public in state history.

Paul VI placed second only to Union Catholic, which ran 3:52.91. It was a two-team race, with nobody else under four minutes. Union Catholic anchor CHidunga Nkulume split 56.05 to hold off Garozzo.

Blair Daniel led off for PVI in 59.74, and Abigail Lutz split 58.8 to keep the Eagles right behind Union Catholic. Sofia Errichetti also split 58.8 to set up Garozzo.

The two times are No. 1 and No. 2 in New Jersey this year and No. 6 and No. 8 nationally according to the MileSplit database, pending other races today.

It looks like Paul VI’s time is second-fastest ever by a South Jersey school at Millrose. Winslow ran 3:52.17 to win the Suburban 1,600-Meter Relay section in 2017. The meet was held on a slow 176-yard 11-laps-to-the-mile board track at Madison Square Garden through 2011.

Paul VI’s previous school record was a 3:58.16 just last weekend at a meet at Ocean Breeze.

Paul VI’s time makes the Haddon Township school the 10th-fastest school in state history. PVI passed Pope John as the second-fastest parochial school in state history. Pope John ran 3:54.64 at New Balance Nationals in 2012.

The Winslow and Rancocas Valley girls 4-by-4s will run later this afternoon at Millrose.
