Felecia Majors and the rest of her South County teammates traveled southbound this past weekend while on spring break to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and competed in the Beach Run Invitational. It turned out that Majors and South County were not only on vacation time while down in Myrtle Beach, but getting fast times as well. Majors dominated the meet in numerous events just like she does almost every weekend back home in Virginia including wins in the pole vault (11'0") and long jump (19'6"), but in particular, Majors really took it up a notch on the track with the fastest performances that we have ever seen from her in a 11.91 clocking in the 100 meter dash and another meet record performance of 23.92 in the 200 meter dash. Both times are easily VA #1's by a large margin. South County just missed winning the team title by one point after strong efforts by Majors and her teammates.
Other winners from Virginia in the meet include South County's Morgan Knight in the girls' 100 meter hurdles (14.78) and Khalil Jackson in the boys' pole vault (13'3"). Tanner Cook of Abingdon placed second in the 3200 meter run with a time of 9:44, while Joseph Boyd in the boys' high jump and EnNijah Majors in the girls' 400 meter hurdles were runners-up as well. Virginia High School's Nikolas Huffman got the opportunity to throw the hammer for the first time this spring with a mark of 183'4" for third place, while also throwing well in the discus with a mark of 174'2" for second place.
