USA Junior Nationals
|With weeks of state meets finally
concluded, the season is not over for hundreds of the better
high school track and field athletes who now turn their attention
to post-season and summer competition. Three big meets take
place in the next 2 weeks -- AOC Raleigh, Golden West, and USA
Junior Nationals --, followed by several age-group youth competitions
into August. Selected athletes can look forward to international
competition in the IAAF World Youth Championships at Sherbrooke,
Canada July 10-13 (USA team selected by USATF from last year's
Youth Nationals and Junior Olympics) or the Pan American Junior
Championships at Bridgetown, Barbados July 25-27 (USA team selected
from top juniors at the USA Nationals). DyeStat

new distance peak? - You might
have thought the high school distance running resurgence
peaked 2 years ago with the graduation of Alan Webb, Dathan
Ritzenhein, and Ryan Hall. You would have been wrong.
Meet managers are calling this year's AOC boys mile field
the best ever assembled, and the girls mile features Ari
Lambie, who ran 4:37.23, US#3 all time, in the Massachusetts

Golden West Invitational
June 15 at Sacramento CA
This is the oldest post-season
meet going, and its all-star format (only 9 entries invited

are the featured events of GWI this year. Five of this year's
six 17-foot pole vault fliers will be at Golden West, with
an expected assault on the national record (18-2.25 Eric
Eshbach 1999). Sandy OR sr Tommy Skipper
has cleared 17-7 this year and had good attempts at 18-2.5
at his last two meets. He opened at 17-feet

State Meet preview - by Rich Gonzalez. Can it
be the best ever? Certainly is on the girls side.
Here's what Rich has to say: "The meet will be
a dandy, with national record assaults in the girls
4x100, 4x400, 100, (not the 200, that 22.11A is safe),
HJ, PV and DT. Also features what might be the deepest
3200m boys pre-state meet field in California history,
with 15 kids at sub-9:09.99 (I thought Arcadia was
over already!)." - Heat
California State Meet remembered - For year to
be the best ever, it has to beat the 1981 meet, which
saw 5 national records and 12 state records. Rich
Section: "Allyson Felix Fastest of Fast"
- First came a monster anchor leg in the
girls' 400-meter relay. That was followed by a winning
time in the 100 that tied for the fifth fastest ever
run by a U.S. high school girl under any conditions.
And then came a win in the 200 with a time that was
