Xavier Carter doubled in the 200 and 400 in the Florida 3A state meet last year, and he is starting out this year with higher goals in mind. After collecting the MVP award at Mobile April 5 for his 200/400 double, Carter stood on top of the national rankings in both events. Next up is the Arcadia Invitational, where he may go for a 100-200-400 triple.

"I practiced hard this week, and I'll just have to practice hard again next week to run faster at Arcadia," Carter said.

Ashlee Brown was great last year (California and Golden West 300 meter hurdle champion and leader of J.W. North, Riverside's state championship team), and she is looking greater this year. Her winning 300m hurdle time in Mobile April 5 was about a second ahead of her early times last year and it was good enough for US#2 this season. Her 100m hurdle time of 13.86 into a 1.2 mps headwind was the fastest in the country this year.

Ashlee, who will travel east to Penn State University for college next year, is entered in her specialty events at Arcadia April 12 and she will also do relay duty for J.W. North.
