Former Broadneck star Matthew Centrowitz won the prestigious Wanamaker Mile at the Millrose Games on Saturday night, finishing in a time of 3 minutes, 53.92 seconds to break the New York City Armory record. Centrowitz was followed by Americans Miles Batty (3:54.54) and Garrett Heath (3:55.24). The previous Armory record of 3:54.98 was set by Ireland's Mark Carroll in 2000. The Millrose Games were moved to the Armory this year after previously being staged at Madison Square Garden.

Matt Centrowitz Sr. does not recall ever sitting down with his son Matthew to regale him with tales of being an Olympian, or to explain the thrill and responsibility of representing the United States on the world's most-watched athletic stage. They never needed that sort of session. Running, and doing so at the highest levels, was a constant currency in the Centrowitz house, one that streamed through everything. Matthew never had to ask about the Olympics; the men his father spoke to, who came to family gatherings, who were at the other end of vacation trips, so many of them had been there.

Matthew Centrowitz would take pleasure in pulverizing the course record at the Bull Run Invitational, the one cross country race the Broadneck High ace hasn't dominated. Why, then, will The Sun's two-time Runner of the Year be missing at Hereford on Saturday? A college visit will trump the state's most prestigious invitational, but this is more than just another recruiting trip. It's a return to roots for a 16-year-old who was born, literally, to run.

What did Bill King and Emma Larkin do on their summer vacation? They kept busy and did a lot of running around. The Dulaney cross country performers ran nearly every day from the end of school in June to the start of practice earlier this month, logging about 300 miles apiece. King and Larkin are part of a trend that has become the norm, especially among the area's top performers. Maryland Public Secondary Schools Athletic Association rules don't allow teams to have official summer workouts, so the runners must be motivated to do it on their own. "The top runners, or anyone who wants to have a better chance at a successful season, has to put in the summer miles," C. Milton Wright coach Donnie Mickey said.

As he toed the line at the start of the Anne Arundel County indoor track championships on Jan. 17, Broadneck's Matt Llano knew the race for the 800-meter county title would come down to him and Arundel's Greg Marshall. Marshall had beaten him earlier in the year and Llano was out to avenge the loss. Llano began the race in the lead, but the two runners switched off between first and second during the first lap, with Llano regaining the lead headed into the home stretch. "I knew he was a good sprinter and that if he got a lead, he would be hard to catch," Llano said of Marshall.

Track and field Back in form, Gay runs 3rd-fastest 200 ever Tyson Gay, the reigning world champion, ran the third-fastest time ever in the 200 meters in winning in 19.58 seconds at the Reebok Grand Prix on Saturday in New York. The only faster times are Usain Bolt's world record last year of 19.30 and Michael Johnson's 19.32 in 1996. It was in the 200 at last year's U.S. Olympic trials that Gay hurt his hamstring. He didn't win a medal at the Beijing Games after coming in as the world champion in the 100 and 200. Gay's previous personal best was 19.62 seconds in 2007.

PHILADELPHIA -- There's no doubt that running is in the genes of Lauren and Matt Centrowitz. After all, their father, Matt Centrowitz Sr., was a two-time (1976, 1980) USA Olympian and past American record-holder in the 5,000 meters. And their mother, Beverly Centrowitz, ran the 800 meters in 2 minutes, 08 seconds when she was at Hunter College. But after two sizzling performances on the second day of the 112th Penn Relays, it's the next generation of Centrowitzes' time to bask in the track spotlight.

Matthew Centrowitz, the Broadneck High senior who is the fastest schoolboy in the nation over four laps, will try for another distinction this afternoon - fastest high school miler in his household. Centrowitz will compete in the elite open division of the third annual Reebok Grand Prix at Icahn Stadium on Randall's Island in New York. His goal is to beat the high school best of his father Matt, who in 1973 ran 4 minutes, 2.7 seconds for Manhattan's Power Memorial Academy. Last Saturday, Centrowitz shaved more than three seconds from the state meet record in the slightly shorter 1,600 meters, taking the 4A title in 4:04.
