saves Yong Sung-Leal's season! Arroyo
CA distance star, the 2001 California 3200m champ and a former
Foot Locker national finalist, was to have been married to
Lan Tsubata (left) in Seoul Korea May 24 in a Unification
Church mass wedding. This would have knocked him out of a
sectional meet that is necessary to advance to the California
State Meet June 6-7. Because of the world wide SARS scare,
however, the wedding has been postponed to July 13. So Leal
can run in the sectional after all. Story on DyeStatCal
tells of the "matched marriage" plans.

MEXICO CITY 5/3/03 -- Los Angeles Baptist high school
senior Allyson Felix won the 200m in 22.11 at the Banamex
Grand Prix meet, beating world class runners into a
0.5 meters per second headwind. This was a new world
junior record (under 20) for the 17-year-old California
star, breaking the record of 22.19 set by Russia's Natalya
Bochina in 1980. Felix also lowered her own US high
school record of 22.51 set just 2 weeks ago at the Mt.
SAC Relays, and she now ranks #1 in the world this year
in the 200. The Banamex GP, billed as the biggest track
meet in Mexico City since the 1968 Olympics, attracted
a crowd of 50,000.
Banamex GP 200:
1, A Felix (US) 22.11 (World jun record)
2, L Jenkins (US) 22.31
3, K White (US) 22.33
4, D Washington (US) 22.89
5, M Nku (Nig) 23.42
6, E Ojokolo (Nig) 23.79
The meet ended badly for two US men
sprinters. World record holder Tim Montgomery was beaten
by Canadian Nicholas Macrozonaris, who got a PR of 10.19.
World Indoor 60m champion Justin Gatlin was carried
off the track after pulling up injured as he entered
the straight in the 200.

Lincoln OR senior shatters the previous Oregon record
of 1:49.94 (Seth Wetzel of Jesuit at the 1992 Golden West). The
800 was not especially deep in talent and the night was quite cold,
so it didn't look promising. But Joaquin Chapa of Grant boldly led
the first lap in a very stiff :53, setting up the second lap perfectly.
As Chapa and McGrath ran through the curve at the beginning of the
second lap the pace seemed to slow a bit, and then Michael bolted
to the lead and seemed to start running through gears like a drag
racer. He just seemed to go faster and faster with remarkable leg
turnover. The Centennial crowd is not unused to fast 800s (1:52
and better in recent years), but McGrath floored them with his speed.
There's a BIG difference between 1:51 and 1:48.There is talk of
McGrath looking for a fast mile down in Eugene at the Oregon Twilight
Invitational on May 3, and perhaps snaring an invitation to the
Prefontaine Classic on May 24. It could happen. He sure had speed

Michelle Carter 54-4.5 shot put
Red Oak TX sr Michelle Carter, who set a national
indoor record in shot put of 54-9.5 at the Nike Indoor Championships
last month, smashed the outdoor record with a throw of 54-4.5 Saturday
4/26 in the Texas 4A region 2 championships. Carter had two more
throws -- 53-10 and 53-9.5 -- better than the old record (53-7.75
Natalie Kaaiawahea CA 1983), giving her the best 3 throws in US
high school history. This makes the US high school shot put record
a Carter family affair. Michelle's dad Michael holds the boys record
with perhaps the most unbeatable record in the book, a prodigious
81-3.5 at the Golden West Invitational in 1979. Michael Carter went
on to a Super Bowl and all-Pro career in football with the San Francisco
49ers. There is still another Carter thrower in the wings. Michelle's
younger sister D'Andra, a sophomore, was second in the shot put
at 40-2. Michelle and D'Andra also went 1-2 in discus at 153-11

9:06.13 edges Tatu by 0.23 - No rest for Sarah Bowman
(2:11.32, 4:49.52, 5-0 HJ and 56+ relay split just 2 days after
PR in mile at Penn Relays)
[from Milesplit.com]: "Fauquier sophomore Sarah Bowman
was coming off an exceptional race at the Penn Relays on Thursday
where she ran a personal best mile time of 4:48.69 to take runner-up
honors in the prestigous race. With only one day of rest after that
hard run, Bowman completed successfully an amazing triple at the
Dogwood Track Classic. Going up against basically the best the state
has to offer in the 1600 and 800 meter races, Bowman came away with
decisive wins as she took off from the gun in each victory with
times of 4:49.52 and 2:11.32 respectively. Having already put all
of the athletes and spectators on hand in awe after those two performances,
she did it again with a jaw-dropping high 56 split in the 4x400
meter relay. That goes without mention, Bowman also cleared 5 feet
in the high jump earlier in the day."
