Virginia's "other" distance star, Bobby Lockhart of Handley Winchester, won his second straight major meet win (Arcadia 3200 meters 2 weeks ago). Opening up a big lead on the third lap, Lockhart did not give Bobby Curtis KY a chance to duplicate the stretch run that beat Lockhart by a split second in the Nike Indoor Classic. Lockhart cruised home in 4:11.45, while Shane Stroup MD 4:13.51 got by Curtis 4:14.51 in the stretch.


Anibal Hernandez of Puerto Rico carried the group through a first lap in 61 seconds (below), followed by Adam Leive PA (16), Bobby Lockhart VA (4), and Nike Indoor Classic champion Bobby Curtis KY (3)

After 800 meters in 2:07, Lockhart goes to the
(right), and Ricardo Iracks DC (17) matches
his move, with Curtis right behind Lockhart.


Lockhart opened up a solid lead on the third lap, which he finished in 61 seconds.

Lockhart stretched the lead on the back stretch before Curtis' kick closed the gap some,
but a stronger kick by Shane Stroup MD (6) carried him past Curtis (3)
