It was an attack of the sub 11 two milers from the Virginia girls this weekend with three runners dipping well under the 11 minutes this weekend. Homeschooled junior star Aurora Scott ran a US #1 time of 10:29.12 at the Asics Invitational in Lynchburg, while Deep Run senior Courtlin LaReau challenged her through a 5:12 first mile and held on for a US #3 time of 10:45.86. Incredibly both were newbies to the event indoors with this weekend being Scott\'s first indoor meet. Meanwhile, Chantilly sophomore Lia DiValentin clocked a US #5 time of 10:49.11 on Friday evening at UNC\'s Eastern Challenge.
Footlocker South champion Aurora Scott was competing in her first indoor meet ever, while Deep Run senior Courtlin LaReau was racing for the first time at 3200 meters on the track. The outcome was a US #1 from Scott and US #3 from LaReau proving talent can override inexperience.
