There is going to be a strong Ivy presence at the 107th NYRR Millrose Games on February 15th.
Today, the NYC Armory released the full entry lists for the 107th NYRR Millrose Games on February 15th, and there will be a strong Ivy presence throughout the entire event.
The entry listing includes Olympians Morgan Uceny and Donn Cabral, recent graduates Ashley Higginson and Sharay Hale, and current undergraduates Abbey D’Agostino, John Gregorek, and Maalik Reynolds. D’Agostino and Reynolds participated in the Millrose Games last year, while Uceny won the Women’s 800m race in 2012. Gregorek is one of the few collegiates invited to race in the famous Wanamaker Mile, where Gregorek will be aiming to break the 4:00/mile barrier (he ran a 4:01 last weekend at the Columbia Invitational at the Armory). There will also be Ivy representation in the club and university relay events that will take place earlier in the afternoon.
Tickets are still available if you want to see this action in person. NBC Sports will be providing live coverage from 3 to 5pm of the professional events. Below we present the schedule, highlighting the events where the Ivy League is represented.
