In her first race of the indoor season, Heritage's Asonya Anderson sent some shockwaves through the Boo Williams Sportsplex facility as she broke 7 seconds in the 55 meter dash and defeated returning Group AAA state 55 meter dash champion Carolyn Brown of Phoebus in the process with a US #4 clocking of 6.97 at the final Peninsula District regular season meet. Her performance ties her for #8 all-time in Virginia high school indoor history.

Virtual meet preview for the Peninsula District Indoor T&F Championships based on the performances currently in the MileStat.com database as of February 2nd.
Photo by Andy Paisley The 2007 Peninsula District Championships saw an exciting duel between Gloucester's Hannah Varnell and Hampton's Kristina Woodard for the individual title with both runners posting times well into the 18's with Varnell as a two second winner over Woodard at 18:18. Both return in 2008 and another fast race should be expected between the two. Woodard has been a district runner-up twice in cross country and will attempt to knock Varnell off for her first championship. After running her first full year of track this past year as a sophomore and qualifying for state competition indoor and outdoor in the 3200 meter run with a 11:21 best, Woodard may be ready to make that jump. Varnell leads the Gloucester girls as favorites to repeat their district championship as the Lady Dukes have three of the top six returnees from the 2007 district meet in Varnell, Elisabeth Drake, and Danielle Martin. Freshmen Victoria Luera should also make an instant impact for the team as well individually within the district. Meanwhile, another sweep of the district team titles for the Gloucester program will be no easy feat as the Gloucester boys should have their hands full with two solid returning teams in Menchville and Gloucester.
