The U.S. Open Track & Field, the first event in USA Track & Field's 2012 Visa Championship Series, was held at Madison Square Garden this past Saturday. The meet also featured four high school events.

In the Girls One-Mile Race, North Shore, NY, senior Samantha Nadel dominated with a time of 4:47.66, beating teammate Brianna Nerud by seven seconds. Nadel's time is the fastest ever for a high school girl on the MSG track. In the Boy's One-Mile Race, Liverpool, NY, senior Zavon Watkins kept his hot streak going, following up a big NB Games win last week with a 4:19.86 triumph.

In the Girls 4x400 Relay, St. John Villa, NY, took the CHSAA event in 4:02.08, leading wire-to-wire and fending off a late run by St. Anthony's, NY, (4:03.05). The race also featured teams from Archbishop Molloy and The Mary Louis Academy, both in Queens.

In the Boys 4x800 Relay, Kellenberg, NY, topped their CHSAA rivals in 8:07.40, taking the lead on the final lap to win a see-saw race. The race also featured a team from Xavier High School.
