MILLROSE HS MILE
Fresh off of her eighth and ninth career Sectional event wins West Morris Central senior Kylene Cochrane aims for a great time at the 2014 Millrose Games. At the end of cross country season Kylene committed to the University of Pennsylvania and then went on a gold medal tear during indoor! She was very busy winning eight straight races in various events until placing second in the 800m at the Varsity Classic. Her last two races were victories at North 2 Group 3 Sectionals in the 800m (2:17.86) and 1600m (4:54.96).
Marin Warner has had a pretty good start to her track season coming off her strongest cross country season of her career. The Holmdel junior has raced 6 times through 4 meets so far this season. She also added her seventh and eighth sectional event titles this past weekend winning the 800m (2:16.40) and 1600m (4:55.09) at the Central Group 2 Sectional meet.
Before this weekend Kylene and Marin had to make a tough decision between the Group Championship meet and Millrose, with which they decided to run in NY. However with the snow storms delaying the NJ Group meet a few days, they can now run both meets! This also gives them a chance to advance to Meet of Champions. Good luck at Millrose girls, I'm so happy you have the choice to run in States as well.
Also heading to Millrose...
