A total of 7 meet records were set at Thursday's Region B Outdoor Track & Field Championships at East Rockingham High School including a pair set by both Amelia County's Jasmine Mitchell and Strasburg's Katlyn Ayers. Mitchell scored 47 points total among 6 events including meet record performances in the high jump with a 5'4.50" clearance and a 56.49 clocking in the 400 meter dash. Mitchell also won the long jump with a leap of 18'4" and finished as a runner-up in the 100 meter dash and 800 meter run. It took a meet record run from Strasburg's Katlyn Ayers to keep Mitchell from fourth individual title on the day. Ayers earlier battled in the 1600 meter run with this fall's Group A state cross country champion Hannah Rose of Wilson Memorial and received some redemption from her state cross country meet loss with a meet record victory of 5:08.88. Ayers again faced major competition later in the 800 from Amelia County's Mitchell and came out in first place again breaking a 14 year old meet record with a time of 2:19.20. Strasburg made a clean sweep of the team titles for boys and girls with Ayers and thrower Taylor Cockerille (discus winner and shot runner-up) leading the girls to a team score of 81 points. Strasburg boys (52 pts) squeezed out a one point win over Stonewall Jackson (51 pts) as a sweep of the distance races and the 30 points from those wins by Anthony Wallis in the 1600 (4:33.72) and 3200 (10:07.39) in addition to Strasburg teammate Dylan Callaway running away with gold in the 800 meter run by a resounding four seconds with his time of 1:59.78. The boys 200 meter dash was the fastest race ever in meet history with two runners breaking the old meet record and the third place finishing tying the old all-time meet best of 22.00. In any other year, Dan River sophomore Antwane Ferrell would be the regional champion with his 22.00 clocking but had to settle for third behind Altavista's Justin Brown rolling a swift 21.62 performance for the title and followed by Nelson County's Rodrell Smith (2nd, 21.95) for runner-up. Brown also took first in the 100 meter dash earlier with a 10.82 clocking, while Ferrell ran a leg on a meet record shattering 4x100 meter relay for Dan River at 43.04. Both 4x100 records went down as the Gretna girls lowered the time set by Appomattox County one year ago down to 50.49. Chatham's Tori McKenzie was a double champion in the sprints with times of 12.24 and 25.64 respectively in the 100 and 200 meter dash. McKenzie is the reigning Group A state champion in both events and looking to match or better her performance from a year ago when she ran personal best times of 11.96 and 24.99 in state competition. William Campbell boys have some talented jumpers as showcased by the 6'7" clearance from Maxie Crews in the high jump and a leap of 45'11" by Marques Adams in the triple jump.

The Loudoun County boys (84 pts) and John Handley girls (56 pts) were team champions at the Region II Meet on Wednesday at Tuscarora High School in Leesburg. Steven Graham in the sprints and Patrick Joseph in the distance races led the Loudoun County boys with Graham winning individual titles in the 100 (11.00), 400 (48.28), and 200 (22.89), while Joseph doubled with victories in the 1600 (4:15.82) and 800 (1:54.98). After never breaking 40 seconds before in the 300 meter hurdles, Loudoun County senior Teddy Murphy not only broke 40 at the Region II Meet but made a run after a 38 second flat time with a state best FAT performance of 38.44. Murphy was also runner-up in the 100 meter hurdles as he traded wins with Heritage's Marcus Finney in the two hurdle races. Verna Hilaire-Lee and Britani Myers helped the John Handley girls hold off the Louisa County girls and impressive meet from Louisa's Javanique Burruss. Burruss notched 3 regional titles between the long jump and triple jump with marks of 18'11.75" and 37'5" clocking along with a swift 14.73 clocking in the 100 meter hurdles. Verna Hilaire-Lee and Myers teamed up together for the first place 4x100 meter relay from John Handley, while Hilaire ruled the sprints with the fastest times in the 100 (12.18) and 200 (25.09), while the 500 indoor state champ Myers won a competitive 400 meter dash in 57.27. Another strong individual performance from Handley girls came from sophomore Lisa Meneau posting a performance of 44.04 in a 300 meter hurdles victory. Millbrook's Crystal Nelson, a likely favorite in the Group AA state meet at 3200 meters, tuned up for next weekend with a 1600 and 800 double at the regional meet. She won the 1600 in 5:03 and came back to run a personal best time of 2:15.30 to finish second in a great battle with Woodgrove's Audrey Houghton (2:15.04). Fauquier's Grant Holmes and Fluvanna's Chance Parmly will be duking it out again at Harrisonburg next Saturday for the state title in the pole vault. Parmly is the returning state champ, but Holmes right now is the top performer including a recent 14'6" clearance over Parmly at the regional meet.

John Battle's Brent Swiney set a Region D meet record in the 1600 meter run with a 4:24.61 performance. (Photo by Andrew Kicinski) No full results with boys team scores have been posted yet from this past Saturday's Region D Track & Field Championships because the meet results are still being disputed due to a strange and unique finish to the meet in the boys' 4x400 meter relay, which will ultimately decide the team champions. Full story from the Bristol Herald Courier below . Read full story on TriCities.com The Wise County Central girls won the Region D team title with 125 points. Placing in 6 events and totaling 40 points total with individual titles in the long jump, 200 meter dash, and 400 meter dash, Wise County Central freshmen Logan Reynolds proved to be the most versatile athlete of the meet and major reason for her school's team championship. Reigning Group A state discus champion Nikolas Huffman of Virginia aims to add a shot put title this spring to his dominance in the discus. Huffman set a meet record in the shot put with a mark of 55'10.50". Huffman is one of the state's top throwers this spring regardless of classification with season best marks of 58'3" in the shot and 181'1" in the discus. Thomas Walker junior Tyler Scott sprang up to a clearance of 6'6" in the high jump to position himself as a state title in contender in two weeks. As a sophomore, Scott qualified for state competition and finished 19th with a 6'0" clearance. A mere freshmen was a regional champion in the boys' long jump and 110 meter hurdles at the Region D Meet in Gate City's Robbie Hicks with a leap of 21'11.50" in the long jump and 15.85 clocking in the 110 meter hurdles.

The Fork Union boys and St. Catherine's girls successfully defended their VISAA state track team titles on Saturday at St. Christopher's School in Richmond. Three boy's meet records were set including two in the relays by the St. Christopher's boys 4x800 at 7:57.10 and the Woodberry Forest boys 4x400 at 3:22.44 as well as another monster throw from Fork Union's Jordan Roach in discus at 182'10".

Meanwhile, St. Catherine's freshmen Bri Miller also got herself two individual state titles with winning leaps of 16'9.50" and 35'9.50" in the long jump and triple jump respectively. Fork Union senior teammates Avery Martin and Michael Idziak pressed each other to swift times in both the 1600 and 800 meter races with Martin as the 4:16.58 winner in the 1600 and Idziak as the 1:54.78 victor in the 800. The FUMA boys also were dominant in the field events including Roach's mark in the discus and event winners Staton Mayfield in the pole vault with a 14'6" clearance and Obiero Okeyo reaching out for a big personal best mark of 46'8.25" in the triple jump for the team champions. The Liberty Christian boys were upset by Woodberry Forest in the 4x400 at meet's end, but had the top two finishers in the 400 dash finals earlier with great times from William Miller (48.49) and Duane Cargill (49.39). Trinity boys swept the top 3 places in the 3200 and were led by senior Guy Shelby clocking in at 9:27 for the 8 lap event. St. Catherine's girls racked up points and built up their margin of victory over the Liberty Christian girls in the distance races including two PR runs and 18 points from Libby Parrish (1st, 5:10) and Liz Spruil (2nd, 5:12) in the 1600 meter run, while Spruill came back to win the 3200 and Parrish took runner-up in the 800.

Skyline junior Thomas Madden continued his torrid pace in his races so far this outdoor season in winning a loaded Southern Track Classic high school 2 mile field assembled at the University of Virginia on Saturday night. The recent Penn Relays 3K champ Madden clocked his first sub 9 minute performance of 8:59.62 at the full 2 miles distance to edge out UVA recruit Michael Marsella (9:00.90) from Chario High School in Rhode Island and broke away from the rest of the Virginians including local favorite Adam Visokay (3rd, 9:05.07) from Albemarle. A total of 9 runners went 9:17 or faster in the boys' race. It was a Group AA sweep as far as the race champions with Millbrook senior Crystal Nelson running a lifetime best time of 10:39.97 to lead five others under 11 minutes in a smaller girls' field. Nelson had tuned up for the big 2 mile in Charlottesville with two personal bests at 1600 (4:55) and 800 (2:18) meters two weeks ago at the Apple Blossom Invite. Two sophomores trailed Nelson in between West Springfield's Caroline Alcorta (2nd, 10:41.34) and Ocean Lakes' Nicole Park (3rd, 10:45.25). Wilson Memorial junior Hannah Rose ran one of the fastest times ever by a Group A runner with her fifth place finish of 10:54.43. HS Boys 2 Mile Results HS Girls 2 Mile Results

Group AAA virtual meet rankings including top 8 in each event and team scores based on performances in the MileStat.com database as of May 10th. A slew of boys' teams are in the hunt as the current #1 ranked squad being the Ahmed Bile-led Annandale squad with 39 points, while the same two schools from the indoor state championships in Cosby and Western Branch are the top two teams in contention for the girls' team title. For Western Branch girls to regain their perch as state track champions over the indoor champs from Cosby, they will need some of their top individuals come through including Tiffany Ellick, who had a big day in the triple jump at the Penn Relays two weeks ago with a third place PR mark of 39'9.25" to become the leading perfomer in Group AAA.
Photo by Don Rich Group AA virtual meet rankings including top 8 in each event and team scores based on performances in the MileStat.com database as of May 10th. The Loudoun County boys and John Handley girls are the current top ranked teams ahead of the class in Group AA. Skyline junior Thomas Madden has had a pretty epic spring of racing. Not only did the 2011 Foot Locker finalist Madden win the prestigous Penn Relays high school 3K in a time which would convert around 9 minutes for 2 miles, but has showcased improved leg turnover with his season best times in the 1600 (4:15) and 800 (1:57).
Group A virtual meet rankings including top 8 in each event and team scores based on performances in the MileStat.com database as of May 10th. Narrow margins separate the top teams in Group A currently with a one point edge for the Stonewall Jackson boys over George Wythe as well as for the James River girls over Strasburg. Strasburg has two individuals who could rack up a lot of points by themselves in state competition between distance runner Katlyn Ayers and thrower Taylor Cockerille. The Christopher Newport University recruit Cockerille launched a personal best mark of 128'8" in the discus at the Falcon Track Classic last Friday night.
Private school virtual meet rankings including top 8 in each event and team scores based on performances in the MileStat.com database as of May 10th. The Liberty Christian and St. Catherine's girls are currently tied at the #1 spot with 114 points each, while Fork Union is well out in front by nearly 100 points in the boys' team rankings. Fork Union senior Staton Mayfield has really taken himself to new heights in the pole vault this spring after a third place finish at the state indoor championship with a string of clearances over 14 feet as well as topping out at 15 feet at the Gus Lacy Track Classic in April. Mayfield recently defeated one of the state's best and Group AA state champion Chance Parmly of Fluvanna on Parmly's home runway at Fluvanna County last Friday night.
This weekend's MileStat.com Sub-Varsity Invitational will now have no entry fee at all to hopefully entice more teams to enter and bring athletes to the meet this Saturday at Dinwiddie High School. We really want to see this meet grow and exist as we think it is a great idea and opportunity for your athletes whose seasons would normally end before the district meet at a ho-hum smaller weekday meet to have a higher quality meet to end their season on a high note with a season best performance and hopefully get a medal as well. We think its important to the growth of track & field in our area's high school programs to keep our younger and developing kids motivated and excited about their future in the sport. This meet is only for athletes who will not be selected by their coaches to compete in the upcoming district and conference championship meets (does not apply to exceptional 9th and 8th graders). The entry deadline has been extended to 8 PM on Thursday. Below you can find meet information and link to enter online. MileStat.com Sub-Varsity Invite - Meet Page & Online Registration
