NIC Day Two: Virginia Highlights Brandon Miles Mar 13, 2005

24 All-American honors total were bestowed to Virginians in the final day of competition at the Nike Indoor Nationals on Sunday. Two Virginian individuals and one relay were crowned national champions. Fauquier\'s Sarah Bowman took charge of the girls\' mile race early on and never let go of her lead as she won convincingly in a time of 4:46.79. Bowman recaptured the title which she won two years ago as a sophomore. An All-American a year ago, Thomas Dale senior Dennis Boone is now a national champion in the long jump at Nike as the favorite and national leader did not disappoint with a winning leap of 24-7.75 in the event. The Bethel girls, led by individual All-Americans Francena McCorory (2nd, 60m dash) and Shakirra Pinnock (4th, 400m dash), won the national championship in the 4x200 meter relay with a 1:40.59 as McCorory split a 23.4 on anchor.
