Running events preview to be posted late Thursday night.

Athlete Spotlight: Kimberley Ficenec Mar 5, 2011

 Kimberley Ficenec’s principal never gets her name right. In fact, just about everyone she meets has trouble saying it. One time, someone mispronounced her last name “finance.” “It’s hard,” Ficenec, whose parents are from Czech Republic, says of her last name. “I’m not going to lie. If I met someone with a name like that I’d probably get it wrong, too.” Folks will probably start getting it right now that Ficenec (pronounced fitz-uh-nitz) has made everyone take notice by winning a state title. The Mountain View junior won the 1,000-meter run at the Virginia AAA championships Saturday in Hampton, crossing the line at Boo Williams Sportsplex in 2 minutes 54.47 seconds, the fastest time by a Virginia girl this season.   Link to Race Video of Ficenec's surprise 1000 meter state victory

Group AAA State Meet Preview - 4x800 Feb 24, 2011

With the 4x800 meter relays being held on Friday, MileStat.com has rushed to release its preview on the only running event finals for day one at the VHSL Group AAA State Indoor Championships. Seven girls' teams come into the state meet with times under 9:40 and several of these teams look to join top seeded West Potomac (9:27.13), who is looking to get over the hump and finally win a state title after contending for several years in a row. The first sub 8 minute 4x800 meter relay of the indoor season in Virginia might be produced at the Group AAA State Indoor Championships. Grassfield boys, anchored by 1000 US #2 performer Jeremy Greenwald with a 1:54 split, nearly broke the barrier at the Eastern Region Championships, but will be chased by a handful of other serious state title hopefuls.
