J-Mee Samuels breaks 100m record with 10.08 +0.7
GREENSBORO NC 7/24/05 - At the Russell Blunt East Coast Invitational age group meet on the North Carolina A&T track, Arkansas recruit J-Mee Samuels, of Mt. Tabor NC, broke the national high school record in the 100 meters by winning in 10.08 +0.7. Earlier, he had run a barely windy 10.05 (+2.1) in a heat. The old record (see Track and Field News) was 10.13 by Derrick Florence of Galveston TX in 1986.
Meanwhile, Tennessee recruit Sarah Bowman, of Fauquier County VA, won the YW 800m by 15 seconds in 2:05.27, US#3 this year. Both Bowman and Samuels were warming up for the Pan Am Juniors this week.

Stat of the Week
All time top 100 miles grouped by meet
John Sullivan is a track nut who can't get enough track stats. He cranks out lists for his own amusement -- and now he can amuse you as well. This week, All Time top 100 high school miles grouped by meet. Two thirds of the boys top 100 were run in post season meets, but more than half of the girls were run in-season. Cutoff for all time top 100 ranking is 4:07.3 for boys and 4:48.85 for girls.

Texas Sweeps GHAC Relays
Cinco Ranch Katy boys, A&M Consolidated girls
win first online high school track meet
Cinco Ranch added the GHAC crown to their second straight Texas 5A championship. They were led by the stellar trio of Scott Sellers (HJ), Queito Teasley (LJ) and Trevor Gerland (110H).
A&M Consolidated's strength is in distance (Jocelyn Gardner) and throws (Candis Kelley). Those events are undervalued in the sprint-centric Texas state meet scoring system, but they played well in the GHAC Relays, which test the spectrum of skills in track and field. MORE
