Records Fall 
at MAC Youth Invitational

Natasha Hastings - Samantha Shepard

Natasha Hastings beats a Marion  Jones record! - the precocious freshman from  New York City ran 200 meters in 24.38 at the MAC Youth Invitational Sunday 2/25 at the NY Armory, setting a new US record for a freshman girl.  The old record holder?  Marion Jones 24.40!  Hastings had to run down her  A.P. Randolph NY teammate Desiree Moorer, who hung on for second in 24.66.   They were the US#2 and #7 fastest 200 meters run this season.  Before her record setting 200, Hastings won the 55 in 7.12 US#9 in her only try at that distance this year.
