MAMARONECK, N.Y. -- The Mamaroneck High School girls' 4x800 relay team made the Tigers' track squad proud Saturday by winning gold at the prestigious Millrose Games.
In a highly competitive race at the New York Armory, the Mamaroneck foursome recorded the fastest time of the indoor track season nationwide for first place in the event, with a time of 9:09.36.
Lauren Chapey, Katie DeVore, Lauren Shpiz and Shari Rauls won the Eastern States Championship in the relay, which spans nearly two miles.
In an exciting finish, junior Shari Rauls outsprinted defending champion Bronxville's anchor leg for the coveted title. On Sunday, the team will compete in a State qualifying meet, followed by State and National championships if they advance.
