NEW YORK - A 17-year-old Bronxville teenager won the Wanamaker Mile at the 107th Millrose games at the Armory in Manhattan Saturday.

Headlining phenom Mary Cain had already set the world junior record for the 1,000 meters and the American junior record for the mile race. She finished the Wanamaker Mile in 4 minutes and 27 seconds.

The Bronxville senior was able to get the victory in front of her family and friends, just 10 miles from her hometown.

"That was one of the reasons I was really excited to run here,” said Cain. “When I was taking my victory lap, I got to give everybody a big hug…They usually do not get to see me run.”

Cain went pro as a middle-distance star at the age of 16. Her next challenge will be the USA indoor championships in Albuquerque, New Mexico. If she can finish in the top two, Cain will move on to the world championships.
