Western Branch senior Keilah Tyson just missed breaking the Virginia high school state indoor 55 meter dash record held by Francena McCorory on Friday night at Boo Williams Sportsplex in Hampton. Facing off in the finals of the Southeastern Invitational against her top rival in defending Nike Indoor Nationals 60 dash champion Christal Peterson of Phoebus, Tyson won convincingly with a VA #2 all-time performance of 6.87, which easily ranks her as the fastest in the country currently. The Western Branch girls might have the greatest depth of hurdlers in state history as shown with their 1-2-3 sweep in the finals of 55 meter hurdles on Friday with all three athletes in Desmonae Gray (8.26), Shamia Lassiter (8.29), and Taranisha Taylor (8.30) impressively posting the top three times this season from the state of Virginia. Gray was not done with edging out a win over her teammates in the hurdles, a national leader in the triple jump for much of last year's indoor season, the returning All-American is back ontop of the national leaderboard after a US #1 leap of 39'9.75" at Boo Williams on Friday evening. Western Branch swept the triple jump with Marcus Dean winning the boys' event with a US #3 mark of 47'4.50".
