Girls High Jump
A duel of high flyers fizzled a bit. Both Kaylah
Burks, Davidson Mobile AL, and Kelley Bowman, Berea KY, have their eyes
set on 6 feet, but they were disappointed today.
Burks has plenty of clearance on her winning 5-8
jump, but couldn't make 5-10.25
Bowman approaches at 5-8, which she missed.
Girls Long Jump
Shamekia Louis, Sacred Heart LA, (red below) took
the lead with a 19-0 +0.8 leap.
Nikita Taylor, Holly Springs MS, and coach
Maxine Tucker watched the measurement intently after Nikita's
19-2 ! Coach Tucker jumps and shouts on hearing the
"She's never been beaten," said Coach Tucker,
raising Nikita's arms in victory. Taylor is also a star point
guard in basketball and a softball player.
Girls Pole Vault
Lacy Janson, Sarasota FL senior, burst on the elite
scene this spring after only 13 months experience with two 13-foot marks at
the Disney World series. She "only" got 12-6 today
but could be forgiven an excuse of being tired. She had a conference
meet in Tampa Friday; she and her coach drove all night to Mobile,
arriving at 6:45 a.m. the day of the meet.
Over at 12-6
Pat on back from coach
Just grazing bar at 13-1 - Janson clearly
is ready to take aim on national record.
Woodham FL anchor accelerates in mid-stretch to
win in 48.69
