An All-State performer in the long jump and 55 meter hurdles this past winter in Group AAA as well as an emerging elite division winner in the long jump last weekend at the New Balance Nationals, C.D. Hylton's Hali Mcfadgen (pictured by John Herzog) did not take a break and jumped right into the outdoor season with a pair of first place finishes at the Battlefield Relays on Saturday with a 15.31 clocking in the 100 meter hurdles and 17'4.75" leap in the long jump.
Photo by Porter Watkins When the results from the VA Runner Invitational showed a 187'2" discus throw from Fauquier senior Kyle Fortney, it could have easily looked to many as a typo mistake in the results. Maybe it was really a 167'2? Nope. It was legit and so is the tree chopping young man who has went undefeated against in-state competition this season in the discus. A fourth place finisher in last year's Group AAA State Championships, Fortney is now contending for a Group AA state title with Fauquier's reclassification and the future Navy Midshipmen validated his performance at Colonial Forge with a series of throws over 170 feet including a 179'4" mark at the Evergreen District Championships. Fortney's mark ranks him among the top 25 in the nation and is the second best discus mark in Virginia in the past ten years during the MileStat.com era (December 2000 to present).

Virtual meet preview for the Evergreen District Championships to be held Tuesday, October 27th at Brentsville District High School in Nokesville, Va. Warren County junior Seamus O'Reilly (pictured by John Herzog) will be heavily favored to win the individual boys title in the first ever Evergreen District meet with a season 5K best of 16:02. Brentsville will attempt to sweep the team titles today after dominating the Northwest District previously, but Fauquier boys could spoil those plans coming down to Group AA this year. Allison Bartels of Brentsville will look to a win at the district meet to build momentum ahead to the Region II meet, while Warren County freshmen Kayla Gibbons will look to challenge Bartels and at least break up Brentsville's top three.

Coming off her US #1 3200 performance on Wednesday with a winning time of 10:16.03, Fauquier senior Sarah Bowman continued to amaze at the Northwestern District Meet as she tuned in some fine performances the next day in the 1600 and 800 meter races. In the 1600 meter run, Bowman ran a three second personal best in the event to clock a time of 4:41.17. Bowman just missed reclaiming her US #1 spot in the event as the current leader, Brie Felnagle from the state of Washington, ran a hand held time of 4:40.9 (converts to 4:41.14 FAT) at a tri-meet last weekend. Bowman then came back with less than one and a half hours rest to win the 800 meter run in a solid time of 2:08.62.
Many were speculating what Fauquier middle distance star Sarah Bowman could run for 3200 meters. The last time Bowman had ran a 3200 meter race was in a few dual meets her freshmen year. Well the University of Tennessee bound star showed what she could do in the eight lap event at the Northwestern District Meet on Wednesday night by posting the nation\'s fastest time with a 10:16.03 clocking. Bowman will be coming back today for the Thursday portion of the meet to run in the 1600 and 800 meter races. Bowman currently has the nation\'s fastest time in the 800 meter run (2:05.41) and formerly had the nation\'s fastest time at 1600 meters (4:44.09) until Brie Felnagle of Washington recently ran a 4:40.9 clocking.
Fauquier senior Sarah Bowman ran the nation\'s fastest time at 1600 meters this weekend at the John Handley Invitational in a time of 4:44.09. Bowman now currently has the nation\'s leading time in both the 1600 and 800 meter races. Bowman ran a 2:05.41 on April 8th at the Taco Bell Classic in South Carolina. Bowman will get a chance to improve upon her national leading time in the 1600 this upcoming week at the Penn Relays as she will be back at Franklin Field to defend her title in the mile race which she won a year ago in a time of 4:48.55.
Fauquier senior Sarah Bowman continued her dominance from last spring where she ended as a national champion and national leader at 800 meters by popping a national leading time not far off her personal best with a 2:05.41 clocking at the Taco Bell Classic in South Carolina. In a field that included the likes of fellow Virginian Katie Doswell of St. Catherine\'s, Bowman left no doubt that the national title for the 800 meter run still runs through her as she won the 800 with a time two seconds faster than her 2004 win at Taco Bell. Bowman scorched a 61 second first lap to finish up with a 64 second last 400 meters to cross the line first.
