Arcadia Invitational - Friday Highlights Brandon Miles Apr 11, 2009

Photos by Margot Kelly Friday's events at the Arcadia Invitational saw cooler temperatures for at least SoCal standards in a relay heavy first day of competition. A total of six US #1's were produced nonetheless and the boys decathlon national record was simply destroyed by Curtis Beach of New Mexico with his point total of 7909. It was a historic performance thanks to his incredible output of 14.42 clocking in the 110 meter hurdles, over 150 feet throw in the javelin, 14'6" pole vault, and 4:09 1500 to complete the multi-event. Eleanor Roosevelt girls added a US #1 in the 4x200 to their national leading times in the 4x100 and 4x400 from last weekend at the Florida Relays with a 1:36.55 victory. They were unable to win a second event of the day later in the 1600 sprint medley relay as they were turned back by the Long Beach Wilson girls who refused to be defeated in their neck of the woods with a US #2 time of 4:02.31. Two other East Coast schools picked up relay wins on Friday at Arcadia with Monsignor Farrell boys in the 4x800 at 7:51.24 and the Sheephead Bay boys in the shuttle hurdle relays in a US #1 59.50. Farrell has been a factory for producing great half milers including a 1:54 on their anchor leg just as Sheephead Bay has been in finding strong hurdlers. Rancho Verde had a boys and girls squad win a sprint medley race with the boys winning the 1600 meter version quite convincingly in a US #2 3:27.49 and just off their own meet record. The Rancho Verde girls had already own the nation's fastest time in the 800 meter SMR and simply dropped it down a half second on Friday in a time of 1:45.08. Dana Hills boys and Saugus girls have been two of California's most successful cross country programs in recen years and certainly relish any opportunity to showcase their depth in the distances when given the opportunity to compete in 4xmile relay. Dana Hills, who had ran US #1 times in the DMR and 4x800 several weeks ago at the California Relays, took aim at a top time in the 4xmile. They were challenged for much of the race by a Seattle Prep squad from Washington, but the Valdez twins (Ryan and Tyler) with 4:19 and 4:16 splits as the final two legs allowed them to pull away with a US #1 17:27.75 win. Despite already posting such strong times early in the outdoor season, the Dana Hill boys are confident of running much faster this season. The Saugus girls had some company through three legs with in-state rivals Dana Hills and then a squad actually from Australia in Ruyton High School, but anchor leg Anne Bulder broke the race open with a 5:04 anchor. Saugus finished with an overall time of 20:38.75, which tops the national leaderboard. More to come from Arcadia including photos from Margot Kelly, videos and interviews from Brandon Miles.

Florida Relays (Day 2): Eleanor Roosevelt girls 45.38 4x100 & 3:41.40 4x400 Brandon Miles Apr 5, 2009

The Eleanor Roosevelt came all the way down to Gainesville, Florida to find some competition and great weather to post swift relay times. Their times at the Florida Relays indicate that the girls from Greenbelt, Maryland found a worthy opponent in the Miami Northwestern girls and warm and sunny Florida weather as the Eleanor Roosevelt girls rolled to national leading times in the 4x100 at 45.38 and 4x400 at 3:41.40. Miami Northwestern, second to Eleanor Roosevelt in both races with respectable times of 47.48 and 3:45.15, was able to claim at least one relay victory on the weekend in the 4x800 with a US #2 performance of 9:17.45. Their 4x800 squad featured Skyler Wallen, who broke 2:10 and became the new US leader in the 800 on the first day of high school events on Friday. While Friday's highlights were focused on individual performers, the theme seemed to focus on the relay times on Saturday as the Flagler Palm Coast boys were sensational in relay action with four victories over the course of the weekend in the 4x800 (US #3 7:46.57), 4x400 (US #2 3:13.15), 4x200, and 4x100 (42.35). Austin Gamble of Cypress Bay proved his first 200 foot performance last week was no fluke in the discus throw as he won at the Florida Relays with a best mark of 195'6".

2 HS National Records Fall!! Christopher Hunt Feb 6, 2009

It’s in the quiet moments that the truth emerges. It’s after the people had patted his back and shook his hands and told him what a great thing he had done. It was when he squatted down and closed his eyes; when he was finally alone despite the crowd, that’s when he could accept his own feat.

Eleanor Roosevelt girls run US #3 all-time 4x400 at 3:41.75 with all 55 sec splits Brandon Miles Feb 6, 2009

The Eleanor Roosevelt girls (pictured above by Tim Fulton of ArmoryTrack.com) made up for a dropped baton at the Virginia Tech Invite several weeks ago in the 4x400 as they saw the Bethel girls end up taking the #1 national ranking with a 3:48 win in Blacksburg. At the New Balance Collegiate Invite, there were no baton mishaps and there was not a single weak leg either with a consistent 55 second split for all four legs as the Eleanor Roosevelt girls checked in at a US #3 all-time performance of 3:41.75. Benjamin Cardozo of New York took second in a very solid time of 3:44.  

MileSplit US Indoor T&F Girls Leader Board (1/26 Update) Brandon Miles Jan 26, 2009

Despite losing their head coach and several key legs due to graduation from last year, the Eleanor Roosevelt girls still find a way to rise to the top on the national leaderboard in the relays as shown with their 1:38.27 clocking in the 4x200 meter relay at the Virginia Invitational, which could stay as the #1 time for quite some time. The state of Maryland produced 3 US #1 performances this weekend in Blacksburg including Afia Charles of Eleanor Roosevelt beating two previous US #1 leaders in the 500 meter dash (1:14.69) and Saniel Atkinson of Bishop McNamara now sharing the top performance in the high jump at 5'9".

US #4 Midlothian girls & Lautzenheiser make national statements in Maymont wins Brandon Miles Sep 30, 2007

US #4 Midlothian girls came ready to make a statement at the Maymont Festival's invitational division race as the Lady Trojans put four runners in a loaded top 20 to take the team title by a 42 point margin of victory against a great field which included two fellow US top 25 squads. Midlothian was led by individual champion Kathleen Lautzenheiser (pictured right by John Herzog) as the sophomore broke away from a pack of a half dozen with well under a mile left for a 18:41 5K win. The state of Maryland was well represented with US #6 Eleanor Roosevelt in second place in their first 5K race of the fall, while Southeast Region bubble team Winston Churchill stepped it up big to take third place honors over many quality teams. The Blacksburg girls showed themselves as a team to be reckoned with taking the next highest place by a Virginian squad after Midlothian in fourth despite not having their top runners at full strength. Joining Lautzenheiser under 19 minutes from Virginia in the invitational race were Liz Barclay (3rd, 18:49), Laura Rapp (5th, 18:51), Paige Johnston (6th, 18:55), Kristen Wolfe (7th, 18:58).

NTN Meet Summary: Southeast Teams Brandon Miles Dec 2, 2006

The Southeast Region did not have the greatest day at Nike Team Nationals. The boys had the last place team in the field with Chapel Hill XC Club (Chapel Hill NC) and despite having a pre-race favorite in Midlothian XC Club (Midlothian VA) and predicted top five finisher in Greenbelt XC Club (Eleanor Roosevelt MD), neither ended up cracking the top five at Portland Meadows. The news was not entirely dim for the Southeast. Despite being part of a major fall and pileup with less than 300 meters into the race, Midlothian junior Jason Witt had a gutsy run to take seventh overall in 16:51. While the Southeast girls were unable to matchup with the Northeast, who continued their dominance at NTN with three of the top four teams, the region\'s three team representatives all finished in the top 12 and their first two top ten teams.

The 11th Annual Friends of Indoor Track Invitational appears to have brought together, once again, many of the top athletes from around the area as they continue their hoped for improvement heading into the new year. The meet was held for quite a few years as a relay only meet at George Mason University with very good success; but has now evolved into a regular track and field championship event format at the extremely nice venue at the Prince George\'s Sports and Learning Complex in Landover, Maryland with the same continued success. Approximately 1,150 athletes representing forty six high schools will partake on the 200 meter unbanked six lane track in the hopes of eliciting some post Christmas cheer as they try to build up some momentum before heading into the brunt of the indoor schedule.
