some help!). Anyway 69.2-2:18.1-3:29.0-4:38.7.  Josh has developed the 

ability to gradually accelerate over the last half of his races, 

something he utilized here.  Reyes was the only one who could travel 

along with him as they accelerated through 68.8-69.1 and 66.9 laps 5-6 

and 7.  They were within three meters with a lap to go with Josh really 

digging in.  The Utah junior had to cover the final 400 in 61.8 to keep 

ahead of his fellow eleventh grade rival.  These athletes along with 

Caliornian Josh Spiker and his 8:56 conqueror yesterday evening (Augie 

Escobar) should make the West tough to beat in the Foot Locker National 

team contest next Fall.  Josh 4:38.7 then 4:26.5 for his 1600 meter 

segments here.

--Strange, looked like good, but not great race, with Smith moving 

ahead of James over the final three flights to win by about a meter and 

a quarter.  The Finishlynx crew radioed up 14.26 to the announcer, with 

second we figured back about 14.40. Results came up with 13.96-13.98 

and other strange clockings which we dismissed.

General Notes: 

--One of the funnest meets of the year, with athletes from most of the 

states split up into three or more divisions for state. Many dominate 

locally all year long with this their first big introduction to the 


--Best unknown talent--Provo HS's Kassie Anderson who led off Utah's 

Meet Record setting 4x800 relay team with a 2:13.5 PR, then took the 

Open race that barely bested her seasonal open time with a 2:13.86.      

--Expect some big things down the road--Nicole Ireland.  The Mohave HS 

from North Las Vegas star was a good short hurdles winner, was very 

competitive in the very next 100 meter event, raced in the 4x100 relay 

in the middle of the meet here, then placed second in the 200 meter 

run.  Future Olympian in 400 meter hurdles.    

--Toughest performer - Josh Rohatinsky.  After some early season 

sickness Josh led almost every single step of the 3200 in his lifetime 

best 9:05.18 run, blasting a 61 second final 400 to set himself up 

nicely for a run at 9:00 against a super Golden West Invitational field 

in two weeks.

--Derek Poynter (Valley, Albuquerque, NM) (HJ) will join the U.S. 

National team for the first ever IAAF sponsored World """"Youth"""" 

Championships this summer.  This competition will be a World 

Championship level meet held in Poland for athletes who will not turn 

18 during the current year 1999.  Poynter, a 6-10 leaper, was selected 

off his performance in last year's National Junior Olympic
