2000 Texas State Meet
Day 2 Highlights

Adam Wooten's busy night leads Duncanville to 5A title - Duncanville only scored in three events and Wooten was part of all three.  The US#2 sprinter (both 100 and 200) started off helping Duncanville win a very swift 4x100 (new US#1 40.23 with three more teams under 41 seconds).  Then he got second in the 100 in 10.42 (2 hundredths behind Sugar Land Austin's Nick Nichols).  He wrapped up his night's work with a 21.02 victory in the 200 meters.  With Texas' 20 point relay award, that was 38 points, good enough for a 6-point margin over Sugar Land.  

Houston Westbury breezes to girls 5A title -  Westbury ranks 1-2 in the US in all three sprint relays and they didn't even need the 4x100 team tonight (victim of a dropped baton in the regionals) to roll to a 64-38 victory over South Grand Prairie. Westbury got strong individual showings from Ashley Mitchell (winning the 400 in 54.75), Raasin McIntosh (winning the 300 hurdles in US#5 42.46), and Stephanie Durst (second in the 200).  Add a 20-point score in the 4x200 (1:36.76, less than a second behind their own US#1 1:35.92), and Westbury could afford an upset loss to Arlington Sam Houston in the closing 4x400 relay.   Sam Houston's 3:44.42 bumped Westbury (3:47.35) back to 3rd in the country.  

Other individual standouts:

  • Klein sr Adam Davis moved to the top of the US 800 meter list with a 1:50.10 victory.  He needed every bit of it to hold off fast closing Jonathan Johnson, Abilene, US#3 1:50.42.  Davis' expected rival, N. Mesquite sr Nick Devenport 1:51.41 slipped to third.

  • Permian Odessa's Roy Williams was almost as busy as Wooten.  He posted a US#1 long jump of 25-6 (w +4.0), as well as second (6-10) in the high jump and third (10.48) in the 100.  This versatile athlete, who now leads the US in both long jump and 100 meters,  is headed for the University of Texas as a wide receiver. 

  • Houston Lamar soph Zenobia Reed got a sprint double in US#2 11.53 and US#3 23.90. 

  • Sam Houston sr Tenisha Winston made a big move on the last turn to win a swift 800 meters in US#5 2:10.83, with Houston Madison's Tiffany Wise 2:11.49 and N. Mesquite's Justina Malone 2:11.65 right behind.  Wise led late after beating off a challenge from Houston Klein soph Megan Rademacher, but she couldn't withstand Winston's charge.

  • Klein sr Shannon Murto won with authority in the opening 3200 meters in a fine 10:48.01, but faded to last in the 1600 meters won by Flower Mound Marcus sr Renee Metivier 5:01.42.  The race was run in a tight pack through two laps before Georgetown's Virginia Coindreau got daylight.  Metivier stuck with Coindreau and got the win with a strong kick in the last 100 meters. 

  • US#1 Levar Norris, Houston Aldine, edged Houston Sterling soph Willie Kelley, 46.46 to 46.79.  Norris's time was .07 off his own US leading mark.

  • The Woodlands sr Chris Emme won the 3200, running away from the pack in the last two laps to finish in a strong 9:10.30.  He lost his bid for a double in the 1600, where Abilene Cooper's Dwayne Benoit stubbornly refused to give up the lead to Emme's late charge.  Emme moved at the start of the bell lap but could never collar Benoit, who finished less than a second ahead in US#6 4:12.63 to Emme's 4:13.26.  

  • In 3A action, Luling soph Ychlindria Spears missed a second straight individual quadruple by .01 in the 200 meters.  She won the 100 in 11.98 and added a sensational, albeit windy jumps double of 21-1.5 + 6.1 and 42-0.5 +4.3.  Giddings star Meoucha Davis beat her in the 100, 24.49 to 24.50.
