Porter-Gaud's Brent Demarest and Lexington's Zack Langston are entered in Saturday's fast section of the Dash for Doobie 2-mile in Winston-Salem, N.C.
Ben Huffman (Providence Day, in white) signalled the start of a tremendous postseason with a win at Reagan last year.
Huffman pushed the pace early, then Milder provided an incredible finish, and both went under 9 minutes for the first time.
Lexington senior Zack Langston set a personal best of 9 minutes, 7.27 seconds in the Dash for Doobie 3,200-meter run in North Carolina Saturday night. Langston, coming of his Class AAAA state title victory, is preparing to run in Foot Locker South at the end of November.
