While the weather may have slowed down the AA Championships it apparently had little effect on the athletes as numerous outsatanding performances were registered. Pete Dorrell ran negative splits in the 3200 to not only win but run an outstanding 9:10 effort. By best estimation Dorrell was 4:38 point at the 1600 and was able to close with a sub 4:32. The only athlete to give chase late in the race was Western Albemarle's Kyle Satterwhite. However, Satterwhite paid in the final laps and was fourth. The early work was done by Abingdon standout Griff Graves. Photo by David Fleenor Natalie Baird made quick work of the discus with a 159'4 on her opening throw. Next up for Baird is the shot put tomorrow morning. Harrisonburg is in excellent position to claim the boys title as Tim Bierle got the Streaks in the win column with his victory in the pole vault and the 4x800 took top honors with a sub 8 effort. Catherine White was an easy winner in the girls' 3200 and the Northside senior is 33% up on a possible triple. The Blacksburg girls destroyed the field in the 4x800. In the girls team competition, Charlottesville may be in the driver seat as Rashawnda James won the triple jump. James will be a huge factor in the sprints and long jump. The other contender, Louisa, has a little work to do to get back in the hunt. VHSL Group AA State Championships Day 1 Results
