  NEW YORK CITY (May 29) – Two of the brightest high school stars in the country are set to compete in the elite open division of the Reebok Grand Prix on June 2, organizers have announced today. Matthew Centrowitz, a senior at Broadneck High School in Annapolis, Md., will run the Mile, while Bianca Knight, a senior at Ridgeland High School in Ridgeland, Miss., will compete at 200 meters.

Centrowitz, who is bound for the University of Oregon, set a Class 4A and Maryland state record on Saturday when he won the state title at 1600 meters in 4:04.09, the top high school time in the US this season. A three-time state cross-country champion, he also holds the nation’s fastest time in the mile this year, thanks to his victory at the Penn Relays in 4:08.38 – a time that broke the 35-year-old meet record.

At the Reebok Grand Prix, young Centrowitz has a unique goal: to break the 4:02.7 high-school mile personal best set by his father, Matt Sr., in 1973 while running for Power Memorial High School in Manhattan. The elder Centrowitz is a New York running legend, ranked the #1 high school miler in the country in 1973 and the first New Yorker to break 9 minutes for 2 miles. He is a two-time Olympian and former American Record-holder at 5000 meters.

Knight, the 2005-2006 Gatorade National Girls Track & Field Athlete of the Year, is one of the top high school sprinters in the country, winning 15 Mississippi Class 4A state titles. The 2005 World Junior Champion at 100 meters and silver medalist at 200 meters, Knight has an outdoor 200-meter personal best of 23.06. She is the US high-school record-holder at 200 meters indoors with a time of 22.97, breaking a mark previously held by current World Champion Allyson Felix. She will attend the University of Texas.

The third-annual Reebok Grand Prix will begin at 5 p.m. June 2 at Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island. Named one of the two top international track-and-field events in the United States, the Reebok Grand Prix has tickets at $20 and $30 remaining ($40 tickets are sold out) by calling 1-877-TIX-TRAC.

Pro meet on Randall's Island NY to feature 4 HS Relays

NEW YORK CITY (May 7) – Some of the best high-school relay teams from across the country, the New York area and Jamaica will be featured at the Reebok Grand Prix on June 2, organizers announced today. Teams to fill out the fields in all four relays are still being sought.

In what’s expected to be one of the most exciting international high school relays of the season, three schools from Jamaica – St. Jago, Calabar and Herbert Morrison – will face off against Texas teams from DeSoto High School and Lancaster High School in the High School Boys 4x400. St. Jago, runner-up in a thrilling 4x400 Championship of America at the recent Penn Relays, will feature the phenomenal Yohan Blake, who was named the meet’s outstanding relay athlete. Blake anchored the victorious Jamaican 4x100 squad that set a Penn Relays record of 39.96, the first ever to go under 40 seconds, and also holds the national junior record for 100 meters of 10.11 seconds. DeSoto and Lancaster, both near Dallas, Tex., are two of the top 4x400m relays teams in the U.S. so far this season.

The Reebok Grand Prix will also feature a High School Girls 4x400 and a High School Boys 4x800, consisting of top New York-area high school teams; and a High School Boys Sprint Medley (200-200-400-800) made up of top teams from the US, Jamaica and New York area. The boys 4x400 and sprint medley will be run under USA Track & Field sanction, while the girls 4x400 and boys 4x800 will run under a high school sanction.

The third-annual Reebok Grand Prix, named one of the two top international track-and-field events in the country, will begin at 5 p.m. June 2 at state-of-the-art Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island. It is the third stop of USA Track & Field’s Visa Championship Series. Tickets, at $20, $30 and $40, are available by calling 1-877-TIX-TRAC.
