USA Junior Nationals

Women's 1500 meters

Kathryn Anderson 4:24.04

Anderson alone in the homestretch

Brigham Young freshman Kathryn Anderson held off the youth movement of a sensational high school underclass trio -- freshman Chantelle Dron NH, sophomore Shannon Bergstedt MN, and junior Kristina Smith AK. Anderson won comfortably in 4:24.04, with Bergstedt 2nd in 4:30.25 at the front of six runners who hit the finish in a pack. Smith was 5th in 4:30.98 and Dron, who ran 2nd much of the way, was 6th in 4:31.16. Starkville MS sr Julia Cathcart finished a fine post season at 7th in 4:32.36 and will now go to France to study for a year before returning to run at William and Mary.

Lap 2 - Anderson leads but is closely pursued by a pack that includes 3 Dron and 4 Bergstedt

Dron loomed large in the stretch of lap 3 (left) - note Dron and Andersen are sharing lane 1. As they hit the first turn of the bell lap (below), things got very crowded.
After some European style bumping, Dron was unable to get the lead and Andersen held the rail.
