Great HS 3200 fields set for Friday at Raleigh Relays

Two outstanding high school 3200 meter fields are set for Friday at the Raleigh Relays which feature several of Virginia's top distance runners. NSIC mile champion Colin Mearns of Jamestown will be looking to achieve a 3200 PR two weeks after dropping 7 seconds off his mile PR at the indoor nationals against virtually all of North Carolina's top distance harriers including Nike Indoor Nationals 2 mile runner-up (9:02) and Foot Locker All-American Jake Hurysz of Eastern Alamance (NC).


In the girls' race, 3A state cross country champion Kaitlyn Davis of Mountain View and NSIC mile All-American Stephanie Frenchik of Landstown with PR's just under 11 minutes for 3200, look to run significantly under in a stellar field with a loaded field headlined by Foot Locker All-American freshmen Wesley Frazier of North Carolina and three girls with 1600 bests right under or at 5 minutes from the homestate in Carolyn Baskir, Samantha George, and Laura Hoer. Lee-Davis High School will have their trio of state caliber runners in Bonny Turnage, Stephanie Cario, and Amanda Lineberry also competing together at 3200 meters for the first time ever.


The race is held at NC State University's outdoor track facility in Raleigh, North Carolina. Girls race at 7:05 PM on Friday with the boys to follow at 7:20 PM.
