More coverage from NYRR Millrose Games

The Millrose Games High School Mile quickly turned into a battle between four athletes: three New Yorkers in Noah Affolder, Aidan Tooker and Conor Lundy, plus one Californian in Isaac CortesLundy led the field at the bell lap. But it was Affolder charged down the homestretch ready to break the tape in first and even slowed at the tape to raise his arms in celebration -- all the while completely unaware of Cortes, who came from behind to snipe the junior for the win, 4:09.87 to 4:09.88.
