Roosevelt Track Star Wins Two-Mile Race At New Balance Games

NEW YORK – Sarah Trainor already had a remarkable cross country season for Franklin D. Roosevelt High School in the fall.

What the junior is doing now in winter indoor track is … well … let FDR coach Bryan Halling describe it.

“This,” Halling said, “is once-in-a-lifetime kind of stuff.”

Indeed, Trainor is simply on another level at the moment as she won the girls 2-mile run Friday night at the 24th annual New Balance Games at The Armory.

Trainor’s time of 10 minutes, 38.97 seconds won the event by more than 19 seconds over Mary Hennelly of Suffern. Trainor’s time is currently the No. 2 time in the nation in the 2-mile among high school girls according to a tweet by The Armory..

Just 13 days ago, Trainor participated in the Freedom Games as one of 2,200 girls, and won both the 2-mile and the 600-meters with top-10 national times.

“The level she is competing at right now is something we’ve never seen before,” Halling said. “Her range is ridiculous.”

Halling said he had an inkling Trainor was heading toward something special.

“Everything I’ve put her in, she’s blown our expectations away,” he said.

Trainor is one of just 11 high school girls in the country to earn an invite to compete in the 2-mile at the prestigious Millrose Games next month in New York.
