VHSL Group AAA State Indoor Track & Field Championships 2013

Hampton, VA


Athlete Spotlight: Katie Roche (Lake Braddock) Mar 19, 2013

    Lake Braddock junior Katie Roche finally ran her first open 800 meter race two weeks ago at the New Balance Nationals. The recent Group AAA 1000 meter champion and new Lake Braddock school record holder at 1000 meters, Roche debuted with a 2:12.44 to finish 11th from a slow section at the indoor nationals in New York City. She has run plenty of 4x800 legs including the fastest split (2:13) for the VA #3 all-time indoor Lake Braddock 4x800 meter relay (9:11) from the VHSL Group AAA State Indoor Championships in Hampton last month, but she has focused on the 300 meter hurdles mainly in the past two outdoor track seasons. Roche expects to see herself focusing more on the 800 meter run this spring after two back-to-back great seasons of cross country and indoor track to start her indoor season.
