Photo by Richard Browder After dominant Tidewater District Championships with perfect scores of 15 points each, the Mathews boys and Middlesex girls look to be the favorites heading into Region A Championships, which will be held on the same course as their district course on Wednesday at Eastern State Hospital in Williamsburg. However, the Northern Neck District champions Northumberland boys and Lancaster girls though ran well earlier in the season on the same course for the William & Mary Invitational to shape up for what appears to be a battle between two district champion squads on both sides.
Except for the hurdle events, all of last year's VHSL Group A Outdoor State boys champions in the individual running events return to make for what will certainly be an even greater year for the small schools than 2006. Radford junior Nathan Brame is one of those returning state champions for 1600 meters and stands an excellent shot at breaking 4:20 this spring and going after the state meet record of 4:19.1 held by New Kent's Guy Alton (2001). Meanwhile, the boys sprints should see some great competition including the likes of Goochland's D.J. Coles, a state champion for 100 meters last June as a sophomore. (Photo by David Fleenor)
