A week after his sub 9 minute two mile run at Nike Outdoor Nationals, Thomas Porter finished 7th in the 5000 meter run with a time of 15:05.49. The three-time Foot Locker finalist was just a few seconds off his cross country personal best of 15:01. Also competing in the race was former Abingdon High School standout Griff Graves, competing for Syracuse University and placing fourth in 14:50.00. Both Porter and Deep Run's Briana Hudson competed on the final day of competition at Hayward Field on Sunday as Hudson made the trip to Oregon for the junior women's triple jump. The two-time Group AAA state outdoor champion in the triple jump finished 10th overall with a best mark of 39'10.75". Porter, Hudson, and Nansemond River's James Taylor were the only three current high school athletes from Virginia to compete. Taylor was disqualified for a lane violation in the preliminary round, but Keith Ricks had a big meet in the event as the 2008 graduate of King's Fork High School who just completed his first year at Virginia Tech will be competing at the Pan-Am Games for the United States after a runner-up in the 200 finals in 21.18. The USATF senior national championships were also held in conjuction with the junior nationals and several past Virginia preps will be representing Team USA later this summer at the IAAF World Championships in Berlin, Germany. Olympic 400 meter gold medalist Lashawn Merritt was an easy winner in the 400 meter dash in a 44.50 clocking with rival Jeremy Wariner opting to run the 200 at the national meet. Sheena Tosta (formerly Sheena Johnson), a silver medalist in the 2008 Beijing Olympics in the 400 meter hurdles, had to settle for second place behind long-time rival Lashinda Demus after Demus won in a facility record time of 53.76 with Tosta in second at 54.45. It was no surprise for either Merritt or Tosta to make the World team, but Charles Clark was unexpected qualifier in the 200 meter finals coming out of lane 8 to spoil some expected qualifiers as a second place finisher to Shawn Crawford in a personal best time of 20.00. Clark, who starred at Bayside High School and currently runs at Florida State, was coming off a long, but successful collegiate season in which he won a NCAA title this spring at 200 meters. Menchville grad Keith Moffatt made the US team in the high jump in a close battle for the 3 spots to move onto Berlin.
Jason Cook, a 2004 graduate of Brentsville High School, is now a NCAA All-American in the shot put at the University of South Carolina and throws the 16 pound shot well over 60 feet. However, Cook's specialty was the discus in high school with a personal best throw of 172 feet and 10 inches as well as the 2004 Group AA state title in the event. Cook's second best high school mark came in that outdoor state championship at 168'2". Cook is now teamed up with another MileStat.com All-Decade thrower down in Columbia with former E.C. Glass star and past AAA state champion Mike Zajac as an All-American performer in the weight throw. Cook is ranked #9 among top performances this past decade by Virginia high school discus throwers.

We have attempted to contact all selected All-Decade team members and asked them to respond to our generic questions given out to all selections.
Jennifer Marinacci (pictured right by John Herzog) may not have looked like your typical discus state champion nor put up the marks which normally would be needed in order to win the AAA state title, but the Manchester High School thrower came through in the pressure situations when the other contenders would falter. Her high school best mark of 127'10" does not rank her high on the decade list of performers, but Marinacci won state championships in the discus as a sophomore in 2004 in a huge upset at the time, but she would prove herself again as a senior with another state title in a situation where she was not expected to win. Under the guidance of Coach Allen Bayuk, she was able to make up for smaller size compared to her competition with great technique and a competitive fire which would be showcased in the championship meets. Marinacci competed in her underclassmen years on the track team at James Madison University and set school records in the discus and hammer, but now has shifted her focus to life after college in becoming a nurse with the nursing program at JMU as well as working at St. Francis Hospital in Midlothian during her summers.

It is easy for Daniel Garrett's name to get lost with the long list of great vaulters produced by Great Bridge High School in particular with two of the all-time greats in Lawrence Johnson and Michael Morrison have come from the school in Chesapeake, Virginia. However, Garrett certainly kicked off this decade as the leader of the Great Bridge vaulters and likely had a great influence and impact on the eventual state outdoor record holder and USATF Junior National champion Morrison. Garrett went over 15 feet on numerous occassions in his senior year of 2002 including a 15'9" best (ranked #5 performer in decade) at the AAA State Outdoor Meet. Garrett came up empty handed in both indoor and outdoor state championships as a runner-up to Centreville's David Sullivan, but the two had a great rivalry pushing each other for some exciting competitions in the vault. At the 2002 Adidas Outdoor Championships in Raleigh, Garrett was an All-American with a fifth place finish in the pole vault. He went onto compete at the University of Virginia. After graduation, Garrett has become a high school history teacher at Orange County starting a young family with a wife and 9 month old daughter.

Before the recent string of dominance by the Central Region girls on the state level, there was Nicole Kazuba as the current William & Mary track athlete was the last vaulter outside of the Central Region to win the AAA state title in the girls' pole vault. Kazuba (photo left by Tim O'Dowd) swept the state vault crowns in 2006 while at Chantilly High School. Kazuba cleared over 11 feet at least 8 times in high school competition including achieving a high school best of 11'6" at the 2006 VHSL Group AAA State Outdoor Championships, which ranks her as the #9 performer during the decade. Kazuba has continued to improve at the next level collegiately as she recently competed at the NCAA Championships for the Tribe and has already claimed CAA and ECAC titles during her time at William & Mary.

Will an individual or relay quartet step up an deliver a national title today or will the state of Virginia experience a rare shut out of any national titles? James Taylor and the Western Albemarle DMR came close in pulling off victories for the Virginia boys, but it ended up being Tynita Butts in the high jump as the lone champion from Virginia. Two state records were produced in the meet though by the Bethel girls in the 4x400 and Blacksburg girls in the DMR. Read entire summary of Saturday's events...

A list of Virginia girls competing at the 2009 Nike Outdoor Nationals to be held this weekend in Greensboro, North Carolina.
A list of Virginians entered in the boys' events at this upcoming weekend's Nike Outdoor Nationals.
Almost a dozen former Virginia high school preps competed this past weekend at the NCAA Division I Outdoor Track & Field Championships held in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Charles Clark led a good size group of collegiate All-Americans from Virginia in winning the NCAA national title in the 200 meter dash. Charles Clark (Florida State University - Bayside HS '04 - Virginia Beach, VA) Men's 100m Dash - 1st, 20.55 Tierra Brown (University of Miami - Hampton HS '06 - Hampton, VA) Women's 400m Hurdles - 2nd, 55.98 Murielle Ahoure (University of Miami - Hayfield HS '05 - Alexandria, VA) Women's 100m Dash - 7th, 11.41 Women's 200m Dash - 4th, 22.98 Francena McCory (Hampton University - Bethel HS '06 - Hampton, VA) Women's 400m Dash - 3rd, 50.58 Sarah Bowman (University of Tennessee - Fauquier HS '05 - Warrenton, VA) Women's 1500m Run - 4th, 4:14.27 Jerome Miller (Georgia Tech - Colonial Forge HS '04 - Stafford, VA) Men's High Jump - 4th, 7'2.50" Catherine White (University of Arkansas - Northside HS '06 - Roanoke, VA) Women's 10,000m Run - 6th, 34:15.26 Stephanie Garcia (University of Virginia - Broad Run HS '06 - Ashburn, VA) Women's 3,000m Steeplechase - 9th, 10:14.35 Donnie Cowart (VMI - Rustburg HS '04 - Rustburg, VA) Men's 2,000m Steeplechase - 12th, 8:54.93 Nicole Kazuba (College of William & Mary - Chantilly HS '06 - Chantilly, VA) Women's Pole Vault - 21st, 12'3.50" Chris Mocko (Stanford University - Thomas Jefferson S&T '04 - Alexandria, VA) Men's 3,000m Steeplechase - 23rd, 9:02.27
A total of five Virginians were selected to compete for Team NSSF at the fourth annual Caribbean Scholastic Invitational held this past weekend in Puerto Rico. Western Branch junior Jeff Lewis (pictured left by Ted Plunkett), who will be one of the top returnees for the defending AAA state team champions, faired well in the hurdles including a personal best performance of 14.30 to place third in the 110 meter hurdles. Lewis also ran in the 400 meter hurdles with a sixth place effort of 56.29. DeVaughn Benion Jr, one of the state's fastest underclassmen as a sophomore at George Washington High School in Danville, finished as runner-up down in Puerto Rico with a 10.78 clocking in the 100 meter dash. Two girls from Virginia finished high in the 400 meter dash with Great Bridge freshmen Shakeela Saunders running a time of 56.83 for third place then being trailed in by Bethel junior Emmy Fraenk in fourth place at 57.02. Albemarle junior Jordan Hill picked up a pair of fifth place finishes in the long jump and triple jump. Caribbean Scholastic Invitational - Complete Results
It had been a dream spring junior year for Patrick Henry's Lizzie Powell. Powell had risen to become one of the state's top vaulter with clearances consistently over 12 feet including a state best of 12'7" and state meet record victory of 12'3" to win her first title at the VHSL Group AAA Outdoor State Championships in Newport News. She was taken to her high school prom by the AAA state champion boys' pole vaulter, Deep Run senior Matthew Armentrout. She was just about to celebrate her 17th birthday on Wednesday when on Monday she discovered a lump on her neck in class on Monday morning. Her father, who happens to also be a doctor at St. Mary's Hospital in Henrico County, had her checked out at the hospital on Tuesday and the worst news was revealed on her birthday...she has lymphoma, a form of cancer. Despite learning of the sad news, Powell is in good spirits as the doctors have told her its highly treatable and cureable. Powell was slated to compete in this past weekend's MileStat.com Elite Track Gala, but instead was present as a spectator to cheer on her fellow club vaulter teammates under coach Val Osipenko. When the top six finishers from the meet were announced and presented their medals, event champion and club teammate Kate Collins of Nelson County gave Powell her first place medal and had her step up onto the podium with her. For virtually all of the spectators, they were unaware of why the girl in street clothes was on the podium, but the meet director presenting the awards was well aware of what was happening at that moment and was strongly touched by the show of camraderie and support that Collins was giving her fellow teammate and friend facing her toughest test up ahead. Any thoughts and prayers from the Virginia high school track & field community would be appreciated by Lizzie and the Powell family in these trying times for them. For all those who know Lizzie and her family, they are truly great people to be around and deserve our support!

The excitement is building for this year's MileStat.com Elite Track Gala as the fourth annual post-season meet once again has drawn quality fields to Sports Backers Stadium in fun close to the outdoor season for some, while a tune-up for others as they press on into the summer for national competition. There are several events in the meet of particular interest starting in the field events with a deep boys pole vault competition which should take center stage as the lone field event still underway as the running events take over in the evening. AAA state champion and NSIC indoor national champion Matthew Armentrout of Deep Run leads a group of six vaulters with season best clearances over 15 feet at his 15'9" best followed by four from out-of-state including two from North Carolina (Aaron Zakula & Kevin Calhoun) and one each from Delaware (Darwin Gibbons) and Maryland.(Erick Artusio). The discus meet record should be seriously threated with Virginia and Maryland's best facing off with AAA state champion Quintin Fortes of South Lakes at a 180'10" season best and Marcus Brown from Gaithersburg, Maryland. Brown has thrown over 170 feet in the discus and is also knocking on the door of a 60 plus foot throw in the discus, where he is capable of achieving a new meet record at the Gala. Karimah Shepherd of Grassfield will attempt to garner two wins and two meet records on the runways of Sports Backers Stadium as the NC State bound Shepherd is coming off an outstanding AAA state meet with a state title in the long jump and state runner-up performance over 40 feet in the triple jump. She will be challenged by a group of talented sophomores in Sibohan Ford-Holland of Thomas Dale, Nefertiti Smith of Norfolk Collegiate, and Montasia Golden of Lee-Davis along with Henrico senior Elaine Derricott. There are way too many girls sharing the current meet record of 5'6" in the high jump, so 2007 Gala champion Pearl Bickersteth of Potomac figures to change all that if she can approach anywhere near her season best and state leading height of 5'11". On the track, the hurdles will be exciting events to watch in particular with the girls 400 meter hurdles featuring the debut of Marlena Wesh in a hurdles race. Wesh won a historic three state titles last weekend in the sprints, but will be stepping into unfamilar territory in a race against established hurdlers including teammate Taylor Wheaton who ran fabulous times last weekend to win both hurdles state titles including a sub 42 performance in the 300 meter hurdles. Also in the race will be two outstanding athletes in Yvonne Amegashie of Potomac Senior and Becca Sinichko of Lake Braddock as the top four seeds all have the potential to run at 60 seconds or faster in the 400 hurdles. Wheaton is the defending Gala champion in both the 100 and 400 meter hurdles. The boys hurdles should have some swift times and meet records threatened with Vincent Brown of South Lakes in the 110 meter hurdles and Ben Majors from Fayetteville, North Carolina in the 400 meter hurdles. Brown was a close runner-up for the AAA state title and is closely approaching a sub 14 second time after his 14.05 performance last weekend, while Majors has clocked a 36.84 time in the 300 meter hurdles and will be pressed by North Stafford's Reynaldo Radlin for a time faster than the existing meet record of 54.59 in the 400 hurdles. James Taylor is another star from the AAA State Championships slated to compete at the Gala as his focus looks to be on the 400 meter dash and the Nansemond River star's pursuit of a sub 47 clocking as he ran a 47.12 in the state finals last weekend as his fifth race of the weekend. The 800 meter run always produces fast times at the Gala for both genders and this year is no exception with more than a handful of boys ready to dip under 1:55 and likewise for girls under 2:15. Group AA's presence is strong with the boys in having five of the top eight seeds led by Ryan Hagen of Potomac Falls leading the field at 1:53.54. Potomac Falls may make it a sweep of the 800 as AA state 800 champ Christina Lee is back after finishing as a runner-up in the 2008 Gala at 2:13.09. She will be in a seeded section of 8 runners who are aiming to run 2:15 or faster including one of the Eastern Region's best Natalia Kuhn of Ocean Lakes. The 5000 meter run was contested last year in a very humid and warm conditions at last year's Gala, but it appears race conditions will be pretty ideal this year with a later start and much cooler weather for this year's event. Group A state cross country champion and 1600 meter record holder Ben Veilleux of Clarke County will be ready to roll a fast time well into the 15 minute range and approaching 15 flat, while a pack of girls led by Julie Strange from Loudoun County are aiming for times anywhere from 18 flat to 18:30. The girls steeplechase is out-of-state dominated with the top four seeds including a pair from North Carolina and New Jersey, while the a trio of Hidden Valley girls will attempt to mix it up with them. Dan Nafziger of Harrisonburg is back to defend his Gala title in the steeple after winning one year ago in hot conditions with a great time of 6:20. Cooler temperatures and later start should bode well for Nafziger and others to drop their time and not do well for Daniel Callan's meet record of 6:15 to stand another year. Thomas Baker of Louisa and John Holt of Jamestown are capable of running under 6:20 as well. A 100 meter head start should help the runners in the 1500 meter run build confidence in running an equivalent time which would best their current times in the 1600. A trio of girls are fit enough to test running a sub 5 equivalent in the 1500 including Maraya Slatter from North Carolina and Kaitlin harman and Maura Linde from Maryland as the three runners come in with 1600 bests just over 5 minutes this season. Zach Tennant is one of the best milers ever to come out of the state of West Virginia and he will be coming down to Richmond as the favorite in the boys' 1500 meter run with a 4:13 1600 under his best this spring. The All-Star DMR are always a highlight for each Gala and this year is no exception with some notable DMR anchor legs including recent Charlottesville Dream Mile winner Taylor Gilland coming with his Chapel Hill boys squad to run up against All-Star teams from Virginia as well as Foot Locker Nationals champion Solomon Haile, who will be running on the Montgomery County (MD) All-Star team. Look forward to a great meet with a fun and festive atmosphere including some colorful play-by-play annoucing from Dustin Yudowitch, music played throughout the day to keep things rocking, Nike Truck on-site giving free gait analysis and footwear recommendations, and most importantly some great performances and track & field action to get the crowd pumped! If you are in the Richmond area on Saturday, come out and watch. Field events begin at 2 PM and running events begin at 5 PM.
We didn't say it, but a recent Daily News Record by Dustin Dopirak mentioned the impact that MileStat.com has had on the Virginia high school track community. A nice article and some good publicity for the site from the Harrisonburg paper. DNR Article - Website Spurs Runners
Boys Mile Winner - Taylor Gilland (Chapel Hill NC) 4:10 Girls Mile Winner - Joanna Stevens (Blacksburg) 5:01 Despite a poor weather day with persistent rainfall all day long, the Charlottesville Dream Mile was a well attended event not only by some of the state's best milers, but a great crowd of spectators who were enthusiastic in their support for their runners in rain gear and umbrellas. Charlottesville definitely can be considered as the Track Town of Virginia. All of the races had rabbits and exciting play by play announcing from Fork Union coach Winston Brown. The athletes received race t-shirts upon crossing the finish line courtesy of the Ragged Mountain Running Store. Full results forthcoming as well as race videos and pictures.
