Ward Melville High School seniors Allyson Gaedje, Samantha Rutt, and Samantha Sturgess, and sophomore Elizabeth Radke were named Long Island champions during this year’s Millrose Winter Games at the Armory Track. 

During the early February event, the students ran the 4x400 meter relay with a time of 3:57.84. With this remarkable time, the group’s best time to date, they now hold the third-quickest time in New York. 

The students qualified for the competition, the longest-running indoor track and field competition in the world, during a trial event on Jan. 10.
