Marlon Woods (Booker T. Washington HS, Norfolk, VA) set a personal best last weekend when he won the Virginia state meet with a jump of 6-9.  He didn’t know what to expect this weekend at the Nike Indoor Nationals. 
“I had a cold coming on and a sore throat,” Woods told NSSF’s Dave Kearney.  “I didn’t know how I’d do today.” 
            Hold off on the Listerine. 
            Woods almost matched his PR Sunday, winning the national title with a 6-8.75 clearance.  He finished ahead of Tim Lovick (New Bern, NC) and Justin Frick, who tied for second at 6-6.75. 
“I’m very happy with the win,” Woods said. The 6-2, 185 Woods, who also played high school football, plans to continue in track and field next year at East Carolina or Norfolk State.
