Daniels and Doswell go against elites
High school stars Brittany Daniels and Katie Doswell, who have posted US#2 all time prep performances this season, test themselves against grown-ups at the USA Indoor Championships.

Brittany Daniels
triple jump, 3:10 pm Sunday
Merrill West Tracy CA senior already holds the national high school outdoor record (44-11.75) and now she is taking aim at the indoor record (43-11.5 by Juliana Yendork in 1991). She broke Yendork's exclusive hold on the top 8 indoor jumps all-time by going 43-5 at Simplot last week, second best ever to Yendork's record. Daniels also won the Simplot long jump at 20-5, US#6 all time. Brittany Daniels interview at Simplot by Doug Speck, who says, " No prep in US History has put together such a quality day of indoor horizontal jumping!! "


Katie Doswell
800m prelim, 1:40 pm Saturday
The St. Catherine's Richmond VA junior was little known outside Virginia until she doubled (1:15.04 500m and 2:52.38 1000m) against a strong regional field at the Virginia Tech Invitational Jan 29. Then she stunned an all-star field in a junior invitational race Feb 5 at the Armory Collegiate Games with a convincing 1000m win in 2:47.21, second fastest ever by a US high school girl. As a private school runner, she is shut out of the Virginia high school state meet, so her coach petitioned USATF for her to run in Boston. Katie Doswell interview
