Girls - Saratoga NY sr Nicole Blood wins in 4:51.30, just covering a huge kick by Warwick Valley NY sr Aislinn Ryan 4:51.91. Saratoga's Lindsey Ferguson 4:52.68 and Hannah Davidson 4:57.73 claimed 3rd and 5th, with Canadian Jennifer Biewald 4:56.13 between them. Blood's time was a bit off her own US#1 time this year of 4:49.05, set a week ago at the Greater Boston Track Club meet.

a note from Walt Murphy about the TV coverage

"I'd like to thank all of you who took the time to write to show your
support for the coverage of the high school miles in Sunday's broadcast
of the Reebok Boston Indoor Games on ESPN2.

"To those of you who were disappointed that the girls race didn't get
'equal' coverage, there was only so much time allotted for the high
school races and a decision was made to go with the more 'compelling'
race, in terms of full coverage. It could easily have gone the other
way if Michael Coe (or someone else) had run away with the boys race
from the gun and Nicole Blood and Aislinn Ryan (or others) had battled
all the way in the girls race.

"I will keep you posted on any future coverage plans."
