Despite the weather delays, the Bullis School (MD) wasn't messing around in the championship girls 4x200m at New Balance Nationals Outdoor in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
From the start, Greene put the Bulldogs in the lead. Of course, from there, the rest of the team followed suit.
As Sutton grabbed the baton, the freshman was four seconds ahead of the rest of the field and it was her against the clock as she sprinted towards the finish line.
As she broke the tape, the clock stopped at a new meet record-breaking performance of 1:33.71, which is the second-fastest time in high school history. The Bulldogs were just .28 off St. Thomas Aquinas' (FL) national high school record of 1:33.43 from 2014. These are the only two teams in high school history who have broken 1:34 in this event.
What was their secret to success? The Bullis School had the cleanest exchanges and the fastest top-end speed on the track.
Union Catholic (NJ) finished second with a 1:37.89, which ties for US No. 18, and Scotlandville (LA) was third with 1:38.17. The Bullis School improved on their 1:35.16 best from March at the Florida Relays.
