800 meters
Sophomore Katya Kostetskaya, Russian student at Jonesboro AR, should be in complete charge. Her state record time in Arkansas is 5 seconds faster than second seed Devon Williams, another wunderkind as an 8th grader in Maryland who travelled to New York to win the Colgate Women's Games and to Kentucky to win the big UK Invitational. Virginia AA double champion soph Sarah Bowman (1000/1600) drops down to the 800. Crystal Anyanwu is close to home and has won several times on the Landover track this season.

Mile
Megan Kaltenbach is wrapping up an illustrious high school career before coming East to run for the University of North Carolina next year. She hopes to resume a long unbeaten streak on the track, which included the 2-Mile at this meet as well as miles at Penn Relays and AOC Raleigh, in between disappointments in the last two Foot Locker cross country national finals. Kaltenbach will have to contend with next generation Nicole Blood. Only a freshman, Blood already has 3 years of big meet experience that includes the scalps of older runners Molly Huddle (2002 Loucks Games 1600), Amber Harper (2002 Great American), and Ari Lambie (2003 Millrose Games mile). Sarah Bowman tries an 800/Mile double with about 90 minutes between races. She did it successfully in the Virginia AAA state meet at 1000 and 1600 meters. Katie Harrington, a Foot Locker finalist in December, has set PR's this winter indoors. Liz Maloy and Blood are familiar rivals in New York meets. Both Blood and Harrington will launch Mile/2-Mile doubles with about 2 hours rest between races.

2 Miles
Nicole Blood and Katie Harrington are #1 and #3 at 3000 meters and should be favored. But with both Blood and Harrington doubling 2 hours after the mile, this race could open up for Virginia AAA double champion Jennifer Boyd (1600/3200). This is the national debut on the oval for North Carolina freshman Katie Albright, who startled the Foot Locker South region in November when her winning time in the freshman race was faster than the seeded race.

60 meter hurdles
With the great Ashlee Williams graduated, four of last year's six finalists look to move up: Vicki Howard 2nd, Candace Davis 3rd, Chandra Pulliam 5th, and Je-Lyn Quick 6th. Best chances would seem to lie with Howard, her Colorado training partner Chanda Hardin-Scott, and Davis -- they are the top three hurdlers in the country at 60 meters. Davis is also US#3 at 55 meters.

triple jump

Season leader Erica McLain, a member of Team USA in the World Juniors last summer, has already become the 4th best US girl indoors ever, and Toni Smith and Yvette Lewis rank 10th and 12th. Not to be overlooked is Michelle Sanford, 2002 California champion.

shot put
Kelly Fazekas is US#1 this season, but the favorite has to be Michelle Carter. Michelle, the daughter of the boys high school record holder and San Francisco 49ers football star Michael Carter, flirted with the outdoor national record all last year and came just one quarter inch short. Oddly, the indoor record of 53-11 is farther than the outdoor record. Record holder Laura Gerraughty, now an NCAA star at U. of North Carolina, has 9 of the top 10 marks all time. If she is in shape, Carter could crack that list, which starts at 52-5.5.

Detroit Cheetahs TC  

distance medley
New York rivals Bay Shore and Saratoga ran 1-2 at Yale and could do the same here, although Rockford and Beaumont are always powerful. Jenks OK came a long way and will want to prove they belong. US#2 Bay Shore is the highest ranking team in the post season (Red Bank NJ is not entered).
