Boys Invite 300 Heat 5 - Tyrese Cooper 33.03 National Record Jan 14, 2017

Tyrese Cooper owns multiple freshman national records, but now he can add high school national record holder to his resume. The sophomore opened up his 2017 indoor campaign with a 33.03s 300m dash at the VA Showcase, .02 faster than the previous record held by LSU's Michael Cherry. MGX coach Darius Lawshea told us earlier this week the pair's goals aren't to just rewrite the sophomore class records, but to go after senior and world records as well. "He really got out fast and finished strong. I think he could have ran 32 if he hadn't screamed coming off the curve like the Hulk," Lawshea told us after the race. Well, "Smoke" this isn't a bad way to start the year. Earlier in the day he ran a US#4 time of 6.38 to win his heat of the prelims and he still hasn't done. Lawshea told me Friday morning that he will also contest the field at 500m. 

Girls DMR Lake Braddock National Record 11:34.54 Jan 13, 2017

Last March at New Balance Nationals Indoor, North Rockland beat out Lake Braddock 11:34.85 to 11:39.10 to set a new national high school record in the DMR. Lake Braddock wasn't happy about it but with all four girls returning to the track in 2017, they knew they had a strong shot to break the record this year. It turns out they didn't have to wait for nationals as all four legs were raring to go at the VA Showcase and they combined for a final time of 11:34.54 to just slightly edge out the old record!Here's the national record splits:1200m - 3:41 (Shannon Browning)400m - 59 (Skyla Davidson)800m - 2:16 (Samantha Schwers)1600m - 4:37 (Kate Murphy)
