NEW YORK — Maddie Meyers of Seattle beat an elite field of high-school girls runners to win the Jim Ryun Dream Mile on Saturday at the Adidas Grand Prix IAAF Diamond League track meet.

Meyers, who recently completed her sophomore year at Northwest School, won by more than a second in 4 minutes, 41.93 seconds at Icahn Stadium on Randall’s Island.

Shelby Hayes, a senior from Winter Park, Fla., who was the Florida state champion in the 3,200 and 1,600 meters, finished second in 4:43.00.

Kelsey Margey, a state champion from Greenlawn, N.Y., was third in 4:43.91.

Last month, Meyers set Class 1A state-meet records on her way to titles in the 800 and 1,600, and also won the 3,200 state championship.

Meyers also has won two state prep cross-country titles, and was state champion in the 1,600 and 3,200 as a freshman.
