Kent Place second-graders have been studying the people, animals, and geographies of our world’s continents — as they are today and from many years ago — as part of their science and social studies curricula, and this week they went on an exciting field trip that would bring their lessons to life. Equipped with their backpacks, notebooks, and adventurous spirits, the girls visited the Museum of Natural History, in New York City.
Lindsay Hausman ’23 Competes in Millrose Games
Senior Lindsay Hausman was the first student-athlete from Kent Place to qualify for and compete in the Millrose Games.
Known as “the world’s most prestigious indoor track-and-field competition,” the Millrose Games features talent at every level, from youth and high school to collegiate, professional, and masters, all coming together to compete in track-and-field events and test their individual limits. This year’s games were held on February 11 at the Armory, in New York City — a track that has been nicknamed “The Fastest Track in the World."
“Competing at the Millrose Games was an incredible opportunity for Lindsay. She has been working hard, and we’re proud of all her accomplishments so far in her running career,” says Kent Place Track-and-Field and Cross-Country Head Coach Danielle Stanton.
Lindsay qualified for the Millrose Games by finishing first in the invitational high school mile with a time of 4:56.36 — the only runner to break five minutes — and joined a group of just 12 female athletes across the country who qualified for the Millrose Mile, the games’ signature event.
Says Assistant Coach Melissa Webber, “It’s been a pleasure to watch Lindsay achieve the high goals that she continually sets for herself. Qualifying for the Millrose Mile is an impressive honor, and one Lindsay earned and deserved.”
“Making it to Millrose had been a big goal for a long time,” says Lindsay. “It was an incredible experience to race against so many talented runners, and I’m grateful I had the opportunity.”
Lindsay will be attending Duke University this fall, and will compete on the university’s track-and-field and cross-country teams.
