New Balance Games
Natasha Hastings to gun for 500m record
Jan 25 at the New York Armory - Home Page -
Preps run with Elites at New Balance Games - This is the meet where high school mile record holder Alan Webb made history by going sub-4:00 for the first time (3:59.86), setting a high school indoor mile record when he ran 3rd in the elite men's mile 2 years ago. This year, another high school runner, Natasha Hastings, will run with the elites in pursuit of a high school record. The A.P. Randolph NY junior star will enter the elite 500 meters trying to break the HS record of 1:12.05 set by Tasha Downing in 1987. Hastings has run the fastest 400 meters (53.80) in the US this season and is in the top three of DyeStat Elite in the 200, 300, and 600. In the New Balance women's elite 500, Hastings is matched against 2-time Olympian Jearl Miles-Clark, who in turn is trying to beat the American record of 1:08.82 set by Jearl's sister-in-law Joetta Clark in 1988.

The New Balance elite high school boys and girls miles will have 14 top runners in each race, with entries including such standouts as Brian Dalpiaz, Hakon Devries, Ahmed Haji, Chris Pannone, Nicole Blood, Catha Mullen, and Meghan Owen. Elite men's and women's miles will also be run. There are 245 high school teams entered in the meet, with field events starting at 9 am and running finals starting at 1:30 pm. New Balance preview

Jan 11 at the New York Armory - a DyeStat on-site meet
Donna on the Side at the Hispanic Games
65 scenes from the sidelines, plus a chat with Mike Morrison, Latin student and the nation's leading high jumper "Track makes me tick," says Mike, who keeps raising his goals one inch at a time.

11 new national leaders, including:

Newburgh NY1:28.54 4x200

Shana Cox 24.08 200m
Natasha Hastings 24.51 in lane 4 appeared to have made up some of the stagger on Cox in lane 5 through 150 meters, but Cox powered off the last turn to win without an argument through the stretch.

Mike Morrison 7-3 HJ
The Willingboro NJ sr boomed over on his third attempt with plenty of room to spare to the delight of a packed Armory crowd. After going down to his third attempt before clearing 7-0, Morrison raised the bar three inches and again missed his first two attempts. Then, Morrison soared over in a perfect arc and the crowd's rhythmic clapping turned to a roar.

Brian Dalpiaz 4:14.52 mile
Sayville NY sr appeared all the way back from his emergency appendectomy last August as he outkicked Kevin Tschirhart to win impressively in the fastest mile this year in the US. Tschirhart was second in 4:16.77. Chris Pannone rallied to win a 3-way fight for third in 4:19.72. Dalpiaz led for the first few laps with a 4-way single file lead group consisting of Dalpiaz, Jeremy Zagorski, Brian McCabe and Tschirhart. Tschirhart moved to the front at the end of the sixth lap, but Dalpiaz stuck on his right shoulder until striking quickly on the backstretch of the last lap. Tschirhart broke the New York State boys indoor sophomore class record of 4:19.5 set in 1971 by Matt Centrowitz {Power Memorial]..

Natasha Hastings 53.80 400m
A.P. Randolph NY star spotted Eleanor Roosevelt MD sr Tiandra Ponteen 55.07 a big lead through one lap in 24.4, but burst from behind in the last 100 meters to win in the stretch. William Penn PA sr Juanita Broaddus was third in the seeded section in 55.82. Willingboro NJ Okechi Ogbuokiri won the second section in 55.05 to claim second overall. Hastings ran the fastest 400 in the nation this season and the 11th fastest on Jack Shepard's all time indoor list, where Hastings already stands 6th. "I was a little worried (after one lap)," Hastings said, "but I stuck to my plan and hit my target time right on the nose."

Trotter twins 4:55.42 and 4:55.54 mile
Bayshore NY soph Laura Cummings blew out to a big early lead and was still out there as the bell rang for the last lap. But Katy and Amanda Trotter had moved up to second and third and kicked as a team in a sizzling last lap. The Trotters caught Cummings in half a lap and won going away to place 1-2 on the 2003 indoor season rankings. Cummings held on for third in 4:58.33 US#5 and Heather Iatauro was fourth in 5:02.80 US#6. Cummings' big lead muted the expected battle of the twins -- the Trotters of New Jersey and the Mullens of New York -- as the Mullens were never in contention.

Gar-Field VA sr Afua Amponsah 8.25 55H (Tiffany Nesfield 8.30). Largo MD swept the 4x200 (1:44.34) and 4x400 (4:00.89), but was edged by Walter Johnson MD in the 4x800, 9:48.16 to 9:49.20.

Colonial For Jerome Miller doubled in 6-8 and 43-10. Six shot putters top 50 feet, led by Leif Krago of Bowie at 58-5.5.

Wilson Long Beach CA could not attend because of state association rulings. Meet Director Tom Martin said, "The State of California would not let Wilson run as anything but a club or unattached and the Maryland association wouldn't let any team other than an official HS team compete." Apparently Wilson was already in the area and switched to George Mason University to run unattached in a college meet. They acquitted themselves well there with DyeStat Elite times in the 4x400 relay (3:53.50), the 400m (Mackenzie Hill 57.06) and the 500m (Ashley Freeman 1:15.38).
