John Marshall's Mary Allen (pictured above by Ryan Kelly) showed a lot of range and toughness in completing the indoor sprint triple of the 55, 500, and 300 meter dash at Monday evening's Jamestown Winter Track & Field Festival. She not only competed in all three events, but won all three races with swift times of 7.29 in the 55, 1:17.81 in the 500, and 41.10. The John Marshall junior had close competition in each including teammate Breanna Taylor right behind in the 55 dash finals at 7.30 and thrilling 500 race with Churchland's Khadeja Kearney (pictured above) and Tabb's Kiara Porter both timed at 1:18. Allen will certainly be a force within the Central Region and her triple on Monday proves that she is capable of pulling off the same feat at the regional championships if her coaches decide to enter her in all three events.
