Ryen Frazier capped off a weekend trifecta with a dominating performance in the girls’ Mile Sunday at the New Balance Nationals Outdoor Track & Field meet in Greensboro.

Frazier, a Ravenscroft alumna who will head to NC State in the fall, blew away the field with a 4:45.23 Mile to add to the 5000 meter and 2-Mile championships she grabbed earlier in the weekend.

“I was just so happy,” said Frazier, who was named a co-MVP of the meet. “I’ve never really smiled across the finish line. My race pictures are always disgusting, but after I crossed I was definitely smiling.”

Wesley Frazier, Ryen’s older sister, was in attendance as Ryen crossed the finish line. The elder Frazier, the only other person to win all three events at the New Balance meet, plans to transfer from Duke and join Ryen at NC State in the fall.

“It’s crazy. She’s always been my role model for running,” Ryen Frazier said. “It’s kinda cool to repeat what she did, and I know she’s really proud. It just made the weekend that much better.”
