Stacey Ann Livingston (2:10.50) stalks APR's Selena Sappleton (2:12.80) for 600 meters and then explodes on the far turn for the win as Edwin Allen JAM 9:03.25 fades. A.P. Randolph becomes second fastest US team ever with 3rd fastest time. Girls 4x800 results and pix

PHILADELPHIA 4/25/02 -- If this were a basketball game, she's the one you would want taking the last shot. Her teammates would call her "Money." Her name is Akilah Vargas, anchor runner for Boys and Girls High School of New York. She doesn't have killer splits or the prettiest form, but when the game is on the line, she finds a way to win. . . . More on girls DMR

Akilah Vargas (A) regains lead in the home stretch over

sans Huddle,
sans Donais

PHILADELPHIA 4/25/02 -- Smoky Hill CO jr Megan Kaltenbach walked off a winner, but she didn't look it. She was disappointed with her time (4:55.84), she was disappointed that Molly Huddle wasn't in the race (after winning the Arcadia 3200 2 weeks ago, Megan said, "I'm going to Penn to run against Molly Huddle."), and she was tired from a cross country airline ordeal that put her into Philadelphia at 2 a.m. ("I never go to bed after 10 p.m.") . . . more on Girls Mile
