VA @ AAU JO (Day 5 Highlights) Brandon Miles Aug 3, 2011

Who is Nichelle Scott? A bunch of people may be asking that question seeing the results from the intermediate girls' 800 meter run finals at the AAU Junior Olympic Games, which has a 2:14 national age group runner-up from Chesterfield, Virginia. We actually caught a small glimpse of Scott's talents in the fall running cross country as a freshmen for L.C. Bird High School when she placed 9th in an always competitive girls' race at the Dominion District Championships (pictured above by John Herzog leading the entire field early). Read more highlights from day 5 at AAU JO's (more to come as well)...

Andre McLean named USA Deaf T&F Runner of the Year Brandon Miles Jul 9, 2010

Recent L.C. Bird graduate Andre McLean (pictured left by John Herzog) was named for the second straight year as the USA Deaf Track & Field's Runner of the Year. McLean, a distance star for the past four years for the Skyhawks, who will be running at the collegiate level at Virginia Commonwealth University in the fall, concluded his high school career running a 3200 meter personal best of 9:38 to place 10th at the Group AAA State Outdoor Championships. McLean won the award in a composite scoring based off his season best performance ranking against other deaf track & field athletes in the country.   A three-time state qualifier and two-time district runner-up, McLean ran the nation's fastest times for a deaf athlete in the 1600 meter run (4:25.25) and 3200 meter run (9:38.86) with the second fastest time in the country in the 800 meter run (2:02). The margin of time between McLean and the next fastest deaf runners in the US is remarkable as McLean is 21 seconds faster than the next fastest in the 1600 and 50 seconds ahead of the second best in the 3200.   Congratulations to Andre McLean on the second consecutive honor and more importantly being an inspiration to so many athletes, coaches, and fans of Virginia high school cross country and track & field for the past four years!   2010 USA Deaf Track & Field Results (compiled from meet results throughout the season)

Athlete Spotlight: Andre McLean Amanda Lineberry Jan 6, 2009

   Take a second and picture your normal cross country race.    Imagine the sound of the gun echoing in your ears as you take those first strides. Your family and friends stand on the sidelines cheering as hundreds of footsteps rumble around you. The crisp, fall air rushes against your face and cools your quickly inhaling lungs. Coaches and parents scream splits at you and the other runners around you as you pass each mile marker and teammates continue to cheer you on. As you reach the spectator-free areas of the course, you start to focus more on how tired your body feels, the soft breathing of the runners around you, their feet crunching the colorful leaves that have recently fallen on the trails you now tread on.    Now take away the gun. Take away the cheering, the rumbling, the screaming, the breathing, and the crunching. What do you have left?    The average cross country race of L.C. Bird junior, Andre McLean (pictured right by Linda D'Amato). Read more...

Lee-Davis Subvarsity Invitational Preview Brandon Miles Oct 11, 2007

Hanover's Lauren Hopper winning the 2007 Lee-Davis Subvarsity Invite in 18:59.While small in size, the Lee-Davis Subvarsity Invitational will have some great quality in a meet which emphasizes the freshmen and sub-varsity divisions with medals going 25 individuals deep in those races versus 10 deep in the varsity races. In particular, several girls could be pushing to go under 19 minutes on the Pole Green Park 5K course in Mechanicsville as cooler temperatures and dry course should cater to fast times. Tallwood's Octavia Rinehardt as the #4 ranked runner in Virginia and coming off a 18:23 5K personal best run on Wednesday leads a handful of fast individuals racing this weekend at Pole Green including Disney Classic winner Lauren Hopper of Hanover, Hagan Stone Park Classic winner Amanda Lineberry of Lee-davis, and one of the state's fastest freshmen in Abby Badura of Clover Hill. The Jamestown boys headline the varsity boys field as the Eagles look to have a better showing in Richmond than they did two weeks ago at the Maymont Festival.

adidas Wolfpack Invite: Western Albemarle & Louisa enjoy joint trip to NC together Brandon Miles Sep 15, 2007

  The Western Albemarle and Louisa County cross country teams made the trip together down to Cary, North Carolina this past weekend for the adidas Wolfpack Invitational. The Western Albemarle boys, recently ranked #3 in the latest Southeast region rankings, did not have the showing they hoped for with a third place finish behind two unranked North Carolina squads Broughton (1st, 64 pts) and Enloe (2nd, 77 pts). Despite having two of the top four finishers with Tyler Stutzman (3rd, 16:07) and Kyle Satterwhite (4th, 16:09), the two North Carolina teams were able to pull ahead of the Warriors (3rd, 79 pts) in the remaining top five positions as Broughton gained a 10 point advantage alone in the fifth man position. Louisa County had a solid showing in fifth place behind last year's NTN squad Chapel Hill (4th, 134 pts) with two top 8 finishers in Thomas Baker (6th, 16:31) and Lawrence Minor (8th, 16:42).   L.C. Bird also represented the Commonwealth well with a sixth place finish in the invitaitonal division as they were paced by race runner-up Justin Kendall in a time of 17:09. Hannah Best's third place run of 20:27 led the Louisa girls to a fourth place showing in the invitational division, while the Western Albemarle girls finished sixth in the championship race.  Aurora Scott also competed at the Wolfpack Invite as she won the championship division race easily with a 18:27 5K at SAS Park. Scott had competed two years ago at the same venue for the Great American Festival as she raced unattached in the college race in 2005 with a time of 17:35.
