Saratoga's Tooker finishes third in Millrose mile

Fresh legs got the edge over determination Saturday in the boys’ mile at the Millrose Games at the A

Fresh legs got the edge over determination Saturday in the boys’ mile at the Millrose Games at the Armory.

Saratoga Springs senior Aidan Tooker, the No. 2 seed, finished third in the field of a dozen elite runners, finishing behind two competitors who had run a total of two races all season.

Isaac Cortes, a senior at Temecula Grand Oak in California, beat Noah Affolder, a junior at Carthage High School in northern New York, by one one-hundreth of a second. Cortes stopped the clock in 4:09.87, while Affold finished in 4:09.88.

Tooker was third in 4:10.20, while top seed Conor Lundy of Fordham Prep was fourth in 4:10.68.

Cortes only raced once indoors, recording a 1:18.0 for 600 meters. Affolder’s only race was at the Hispanic Games.

In comparison, the boys’ mile was Tooker’s second race in a week. He ran a 9:46.29 to win the 3,200 in the Section II state qualifier last Monday.

In addition to Tooker’s third-place finish, a quartet of Saratoga girls was victorious in the invitational high school 4x800 relay, finishing in 9:03.55, which is No. 2 in the nation. Colonie finished fifth in the relay in 9:15.29, which puts the Garnet Raiders fifth.

Competing for Colonie (with splits) were Amanda Chambers (2:18.8), Bellame Bower (2:17.9), Noell Saxe (2:20.5) and Marilyn O’Brien (2.17.8).
