The Stevens dominated the weekend at Liberty University's Flames High School Invitational with the nation's fastest two 1600 and 1000 meters, while Joanna Stevens completed her weekend with a 4:53 1600 and 2:55 1000 on her legs with a 10:29 3200 meter "cool down". There was no question who were the two biggest stars of Virginia's largest high school indoor invitational of the year. However, the huge meet also had many other includes completing some impressive triples including Prince George senior Desi Scott who won the 300 and 500 meter dashes along with winning her section of the 1000 meter run.
The Stevens twins did it again. Kathleen and Joanna Stevens had the high school track & field world's jaw-dropping back in early December fresh off their top 10 performance at NXN when they dropped two of the fastest 3200 indoor performances all-time in Virginia high school history with a 10:26 run at Liberty University. Back on the same track in the middle of January for Liberty's Flames High School Invitational on Saturday, it was the 1600 meter run which the twin duo etched their name further as two of the all-time greats in Virginia high school history posting times of 4:53 respectively with the fastest unconverted 1600 meter performances times in the nation and fastest unbanked track time including converted mile races.
Brief preview for some of the top meets this weekend in Virginia at Liberty University, Boo Williams Sportsplex, and Fork Union Military Academy. This weekend will mark the return of Lizzie Powell back to competition after the defending Group AAA state champion and meet record holder learned she had cancer following last year's state outdoor meet. If you had to choose one athlete to root for this year, the Patrick Henry senior Powell has to be the one after being dealt such life-changing news following her outdoor state title in the pole vault. Powell will be competing on Friday in the pole vault at the Liberty Flames High School Invitational in Lynchburg.
Performance list below for the Liberty Flames High School Invitational to be held Friday & Saturday, January 15th & 16th at the Tolsma Track Center in Lynchburg. A revised time schedule can also be found HERE.
