SALT LAKE CITY - The Davis High School girls 4 x 800 meter relay team is heading to New York for a national championship this weekend.

The team, made up of Shea Martinez, Ellie Child, Joanna Boyd and Taylor Cox, will be competing at the New Balance Indoor Nationals this Saturday.

Martinez, a future BYU runner, is ranked third in the nation in the 800 meter heading into nationals. She'll be competing as an individual and as the anchor of the 4 x 800 team.

Two of the other three teammates are ranked in the top 30 in the nation, and they believe the combination of four top-tier runners gives them a good shot at winning.
