Most eyes were on the middle of the track where Piqua OH jr Brandon Saine in lane 3, Littleton CO sr J.T. Scheuerman in 4 and Waco TX sr LaJerald Betters in 5 had posted US top 5 times this season.

Scheuerman and Saine were out well, with Scheuerman having made up the stagger on Betters by the 200.  Saine held a one-stride lead off the last turn, but Scheuerman steadily pulled away down the stretch for a sterling 46.40 win.  Hallandale FL sr Tabarie Henry closed well with his long-striding style to grab the silver in 46.51.  Betters edged Saine for the bronze, 46.60 to 46.73.

“I knew I’d have to work hard, and I was hoping for a faster time,” said Scheuereman.  “I didn’t feel 100 percent, felt kind of heavy.  Plus everyone seemed to lay back a bit today, except Betters who took it out a bit harder than usual.” 

He added, “I’ll be teaming up with LaJerald at Baylor next year.  I’m looking forward to that and the transition should be smooth since my coach, a Baylor-ex, had me on a Baylor-style training program.”

Led by J.T. Scheuerman, four runners dipped below 47-seconds in one
of the day's top races. Scheuerman (Littleton, CO) and future Baylor teammate
LaGerald Betters (Waco, TX), last year's runnerup, were expected to duke it out
for the one-lap crown.
Betters, decked out in red, and Tabarie Henry (Hallandale, FL), running in lane
seven, had very good starts. Coming around the final turn it was junior Brandon
Saine (Piqua, OH) in command, followed by Scheuerman and Betters.
Scheuerman, wearing black, grabbed the lead on the straightaway and was never
headed. He won in 46.40, while Henry's spirited performance earned him the
runnerup spot in 46.51. Betters was third in 46.60, followed by Saine in 46.73.
Scheuerman, the national leader at 46.23, won three sprint titles (100, 200,
400) and anchored the winning 4x200 meter relay squad at the Colorado state
