Performance list for the 2007 CNU Showcase to be held Friday & Saturday, January 12th & 13th at Christopher Newport University\'s Freeman Center in Newport News, Virginia.
The meet was off to a flying start on Friday in the first day of events at the Christopher Newport University High School Showcase in Newport News. There were three US top five performances recorded during the event and several state leading performances also posted.
Sean Holston did it again at the Prince George County Sports and Learning Complex with his third US#1 performance in his third different event with a personal best 47.90 clocking in the 400 meter dash at Saturday\'s Montgomery Invitational in Landover, Maryland. Holston already owns the US#1 times for 300 (33.99) and 500 (1:03.94) meters as all three nation\'s best times were posted on the same track at Prince George. However, his national leading time was short lived as Chris Ward of Florida (47.42) and Curtis Bilbrew of Alabama (47.68) posted faster times on a much faster and banked track found at the University of Arkansas on Saturday. Axel Mostrag\'s 4:17.76 1600 meter time at the FUMA Invite has to be the best 1600 or mile performance in nation disregarding times based on the fact that Mostrag ran his time on the 160 meter unbanked track at the Estes Athletic Center. His time broke the meet record of 4:19.96 held by a former great high school, collegiate, and post-collegiate miler in Sencca Lassiter. More to come from Montgomery, Fork Union, and CNU.
Saturday at the CNU Showcase held at the Freeman Center in Newport News had three state leading performances and more importantly gave some early indications of what to expect from top teams, relays, and athletes this season. Two teams who looked sharp after the completion of the meet in the Eastern Region were the Bethel girls and Western Branch boys.
