Top Junior Milers, Relay Squads

for New Balance Indoor Grand Prix
in Boston

New England vs. New YorkRivalry Renewed in Relay Match-ups

BOSTON (Jan. 24, 2013) ‰ÛÓ The Patriots and
the Giants will be watching the Super Bowl on television but the New Balance Indoor
Grand Prix will keep alive the sporting rivalry between Boston and New York with
featured New England vs. New York boys’ and girls’ relays on February 2,
organizers have announced. And true to the sport’s roots, the country’s top high
school indoor milers will once again descend on Boston to try to claim a
victory in what is the top event of its kind each year. 


New York and New England diehard sports
fans lamenting their NFL and MLB teams’ early exit from the playoffs will see a
club boys’ 4 x 800 meters and girls’ 4 x 400 meters consisting of athletes from
the top high school teams from both regions in a scored event. Firebirds TC, a club team of athletes
from Kellenberg HS, leads the boys’ entries with a time of 7:51.72 already this
season. New England’s top squad, Lowell
hasn’t posted a standout time just yet but the team of Lowell HS athletes
won the 2012 Massachusetts Division 1 Cross Country Championships. Also in the
field, Brookline TC has the fastest time in the state this season. 


The Girls’ Junior Mile may be the deepest
in the event’s history. Led by 
the 2012 New Balance Outdoor High School
National Champion,
Wesley Frazier from Ravenscroft
High School in North Carolina, the event also features Maine’s first ever sub
5-minute high school girl,
, and Connecticut’s indoor 800m state record-holder, Sarah Gillespie.
