Anthony Kostelac faired well in the Millrose Games high school mile on Friday night. Maybe not the win that some were predicting, but still a strong runner-up showing in his first mile race of the season with a state leading time of 4:16.75, which converts to close to a 4:15 flat 1600 for the Albemarle senior. Kostelac's finish ranks among the best finishes and fastest times in Millrose history by a Virginian in the high school mile race. Only Fork Union's Ibrahim Aden (1992) and Lafayette's Seneca Lassiter (1995) have ever won the race from Virginia with Aden's 4:14.13 runner-up performance in 1991 as the fastest all-time by a Virginian prep. Winning this year's race was current national mile leader Pat Schellberg from New Jersey in a time of 4:14.84.
