Girls 800 - Meadowcreek Norcross GA jr Brittany Hall and Pass Christian MS 8th grader Corie McGee ran the most thrilling race of the meet. After one lap in 66 seconds, Hall and McGee broke from the pack and ran side by side in an all out sprint down the backstretch. Hall finally got past McGee on the far turn and pulled away to win, 2:10.19 to 2:14.07. Boys Triple Jump - McGill-Toolen Mobile jr Phelon Jones, the defending champion, locked up with Cahokia IL sr Kali Jackson in just as torrid a duel, with the lead changing hands each of the four rounds. Jackson took the lead on his first jump of 48-5. Jones responded with a 48-11 in the second round. Then Jackson soared past the 50-foot mark for a new meet record 50-1 in the third round. Jones responded on his last attempt with a 50-4.5 leap which Jackson, jumping last, could not beat.

Four more meet records

Emily Reese

Girls Mile - Chamblee GA soph Emily Reese, a Foot Locker cross country national finalist in December, seesawed throughout with White Station TN jr Rita Jorgensen before coming from behind on the last turn to win in 4:57.50 (Jorgensen 4:59.18).

Donte Nall

Boys HJ - Chapel Hill Douglasville GA sr Donte Nall, a member of Team USA at the World Youth Games in Morocco last summer, got a PR and meet record with his 7-0 clearance. He was perfect through that point, but then went out at 7-2.

Boys Discus - Opelika AL sr Zach Clayton AL 190-3 improved by 6 feet on his own meet record set last year. He doubled in the shot put at 58-9.

Boys Pole Vault - Oconee County GA sr Jordan Scott, headed for Kansas next year, cleared 16-6 in the dark to beat Ponchitoula LA sr Joshua Dominguez 16-0. The event started at twilight and by the time Scott entered the competition at 16-0, it was totally dark at the pole vault pit outside the track oval on the first turn as the stadium lights are turned toward the football field. Scott's father held a flash light on the box so the vaulters could see where to plant their poles. Scott had to go to his third attempt to survive at 16-0 and then cleared 16-6 cleanly on his first attempt. Scott raised the bar to 17-2 but missed three times.

Top boys - Karjuan Williams, Trey Harts, Cordera Jenkins, Jordan Scott, Evander Wells
Top girls - Santana Lowery, Jackie Drouin, Brittany Hall, Cory McGee, Emily Reese, Rita Jorgensen

Meet director Steve Schoenewald attracts some of the greatest athletes in the country to Mobile every year. This year should be no different. DyeStat will be on-site for the 7th straight year.
