The Narragansett Regional girls 4×8 relay team of Senior Krista Webb, Junior Kylie Chartier, Junior Anna Capps, and Junior Renee Capps will take to the 106th Millrose Games in New York City this Saturday afternoon.

They will enter the meet with a seed time of 9 minutes 30.05 seconds and currently ranked number 15 in country regardless of division.

“We are all extremely honored just to be considered in such a great event.” “They have worked so hard.”
“As a coach, you can’t ask for anything more than what they give.”
The Narragansett 4×8 is currently 4-0 when racing in the relay this season with 4 meet records. Meet records have been set at the Boston Holiday Challenge, the Division 4 State Relays, and Massachusetts Elite Meet, all set at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston. Most recently the quartet set the Meet record at the District E Division 2 Meet where the Narragansett girls team won its first district team title in its school history.

Their seed time also places them 9 seconds ahead of the meet record currently held by the legendary Ari Lambi 2001 Bromfield School team.
“This week will shape up to be the toughest week of the season and probably of their running careers.” Narragansett raced Sunday evening when the team took 1st overall in the District E Division 2 meet and will be competing on Friday in the Division 4 State Meet followed by the Millrose Games on Saturday afternoon. “They have been very prepared and determined.” “They keep telling me that they can’t wait.”
“Our goal in New York is just to have some fun and soak it all in.” “We also want to get ourselves ready for the National meet in March. It will be at the same place, being The Armory in New York City, and we will be competing against the same teams.”
“I am very excited for these girls.” “This is something that they will get to talk about for a long time.”
