Brittany Daniels soars,
J-Mee Samuels roars.

Bianca Knight, Kira Robinson, Nicole Leach, Ebony Collins, Justin Oliver, Heidi Houle, Teekay TC (Wilson Long Beach), and Michaela Wallerstadt also star as US#1 and all-time ranking performances abound.
Doubles by Daniels 20-5 and 43-5. Samuels 6.72 and 21.47. Oliver 47.68 and 23-6.5, and Teekay TC 1:38.77 and 3:48.85. Eleven Simplot performances are US#1 for the season on the NIKE LIST.
J-Mee Samuels 6.72 and 21.47
Mt. Tabor NC senior explodes at the finishes to beat Nate Yorks CO 6.80 in the 60m and Justin Oliver GA in the 200m. Both are US#1 times this season, the 60m is US#9t all time, and the 200m is a Simplot meet record.
Brittany Daniels CA 20-5 and 43-5. Below, Daniels soars to 20-5 long jump, breaking the meet record three times in an earlybird special (started at 8:15 am). She returned in the afternoon to break the meet record in triple jump at 43-5, second best indoor TJ ever in the US.

Bianca Knight 23.70 200m US#11 all time
Ridgeland MS soph is only 0.06 off the national sophomore class record (23.64 by Sanya Richards in 2000). Relegated to the morning sections after running 10th in the prelims Friday, Knight burned up the track with a good night's rest, winning the event outright when Ebony Collins won the seeded section in 24.02. Knight got into Pocatello at midnight Thursday after an ordeal trip with 2-hour flight delays on each of three flights between Mississippi and Idaho. Knight, below, later ran 55.68 in the 400 meters, also in one of the "slower" morning sections.

Nicole Leach 54.05 (left), Elan Hilaire 54.06 in a fabulous finish that required 5 minutes study of the Lynx photos. The Owings Mills MD freshman beat Leach to the turn after the break and held a little daylight into the far turn. Leach spurted off the last turn and looked ready to put Hilaire away, but the two churned furiously side by side to the tape. Hilaire set a new freshman class national record (was 54.25 by Char Foster in 1995).

Sanctioning Crisis
Problems end for non-member PA schools competing against NY teams in state -
and there's progress on other fronts, too.
According to PIAA Assistant Executive Director Jodi Good, the state associations of Pennsylvania and New York have reached an agreement to enable non-member schools from any state to compete against NY athletes in any event in any sport in PA. The breakthrough agreement, worked out in a telephone conference Tuesday, involved PIAA Executive Director Bradley Cashman and NYSPHSAA Executive Director Nina Van Erk, along with NY Assistant Executive Director Lloyd Mott. The agreement does not include out-of-state meets, such as those at the New York Armory in New York. But it is major progress. 7th in a series on the Sanctioning crisis by Don Rich
In high school track, not all rules are created equally. Why the rules of competition and the rules of eligibility are managed differently.
At the heart of the current sanctioning discussions - and sometimes arguments that threaten to disrupt major meets for many seasons to come - are the rules of eligibility. 8th in the series on the Sanctioning crisis by Don Rich | Sanctioning Crisis series index

Taking a shot
at the record books

Ryan Whiting chases 70' and more.

Central Dauphin PA senior Ryan Whiting didn't come out of nowhere. It's where he's going this year that has everyone turning from the track to watch, and to watch out for, the shot put.

Jen Barringer chooses Colorado
Florida distance star makes her decision after qualifying for her second straight World Cross at the USA Cross Country Championships in Vancouver WA. She will join U. Colorado freshman Liza Pasciuto, who won the junior women's race at Vancouver in which Barringer finished third. " I'm excited about my future as a runner and student at Colorado. The decision was the hardest one I've had to make in my life," Barringer said. "I had my choices down to the best schools/coaches in the nation.".
