Texas teen went to the Houston Marathon/Aramco Half Marathon planning
only to shop, but "the hype got to me." The 15-year-old
Westfield Spring TX sophomore came back the next day and ran a stunning
time in the half-marathon, which is twice as far as she had ever run before.

flew as Davis caught Williams..." - and a new US 600m record was in
It was a huge weekend at the New York Armory for Queen of Peace NJ sr Janine Davis. Coming off a US #4 all time 1000 meters of
2:48.69 Saturday Jan 15 at the Stanner Games, Davis matched up Sunday with Towson Catholic MD soph Devon Williams (the
US 500m record holder) in the MAC Record Assault Challenge, and sparks flew. Williams
set the pace early on, actually hitting the 500m mark in close to 1:12.0.
Davis (left, in black uniform ) caught Williams with less than 50m left and charged home for a new
National Record time of 1:29.27, breaking Stacey Ann Livingston's (Boys
and Girls, NY) time of 1:29.69 set at the NY Mayors meet on 2/24/02, also
at the NY Armory. Williams finished in 1:31.05. -- Tim Fulton - Armorytrack.com (photo by Kim Spir)

Foot Locker champ Ken Cormier may be
the man to beat on the oval as well, reports DyeStatCal
editor Rich Gonzalez. Cormier tooks his speed up a notch with a visit to
the Albuquerque All-Comers Indoors. His 4:15.30 "is worth sub-4:10
at sea level," Gonzalez said. It was the first indoor meet in Albuquerque
on a new mondo surface installed at the Convention Center.
Meanwhile in Seattle, nNational TJ record holder Brittany Daniels
(Merrill West HS, Tracy) opened her senior season with a nation-leading
20-01.50 and 42-10.75 double at the University
of Washington Dempsey Indoor preview. Teammate Miranda Garrido
goes 7.77 in 60m in final, the #3 US prep time of the year. Central Catholic
Portland OR sr Stephen Oliver ran 8:37.49 3000m US#1 in
a race won by Julius Achon. The next day at the University
of Washington Open Meet, Riverside Auburn WA sr Jordan McNamara
ran 8:40.96 US#2, followed by Crater OR jr Isaac Stoutenburgh in
8:41.09 US#3. Also at the meet, Kamiak WA sr Kelly Spady went 4:19.26,
the US#6 mile. And
David Gettis (Dorsey HS, Los Angeles), the two-time California state
400m champion and big-time football star, orally commits to Baylor University.
Gettis has bests of 46.39 and 21.50 and is rated among the best wide receivers
on the West Coast. [Rich Gonzalez and reports]
