NIN Coverage: McCorory Breaks 400 National Record...51.93!!! Brandon Miles Mar 12, 2006

The 2006 edition of the Nike Indoor Nationals was a meet filled with outstanding performances that the state of Virginia had a large role in contributing to. In particular, the lone national record that was broken in meet came from Bethel senior Francena McCorory as she broke a 400 meter national title that was set on one of the fastest 200 meter banked tracks in America at the New York Armory. However, McCorory did not let an unbanked 200 meter track surface found at the Prince George County Sports and Learning Complex deter her from shattering the mark set in 2002 by Sanya Richard at 52.10. Her time of 51.93 was by far the greatest performance of the meet and to many respected long-time members of the track and field community as one of the greatest high school races of all time. McCorory\'s time of 51.93 would have won the NCAA Division I Championships in the event this weekend. Even without McCorory\'s performance, Virginia was looking pretty with an impressive medeal count of seven national titles and 13 national runner-up performances to go along with many more top six All-American honors.
