A recent feature on former South Lakes High School (Reston, VA) distance running great Alan Webb, who is once again making a change in coaching and training, but for the first time is moving up in distance to make the 5K and possibly 10K and marathon distance in the future become his primary events. Another transition Webb has been experiencing in the past year is fatherhood. Webb last summer with his wife Julia welcomed their first child (daughter Joanie) into the world last summer during the Olympic Trials.

Additionally, Drain was a state qualifier as a junior in the 110 meter hurdles outdoors and as a senior in the 500 meter dash outdoors. The South Lakes school record holder in the 300 meter hurdles with a personal best of 38.72, Drain will be attending Virginia Tech in the fall.
All photos by Tim Hagen Outside of the Potomac Falls boys roll through the 32 team seeded varsity division with a team score of 118 points and time average of 16:26 on the newly designed full 5000 meter course at Bull Run Regional Park, the Glory Days Grill Invitational was full of thrilling finishes and nail biters in determining the team outcome. The VA #9 ranked Potomac Falls made easy work of the field putting their entire top five under 17 minutes including three among the top 20 in Juan Campos (9th, 16:09), Connor Wilson (14th, 16:18) and Nick Mogensen (18th, 16:20) to put 74 points between them and runners-up James Robinson (192 pts). The Robinson boys have been surging in the past two weeks with their solid team showing at Great American last week as they clipped VA #14 and Northern Region rival South Lakes (3rd, 209 pts) for second in the team standings and look to challenge for one of the four state meets at the regional meet at Burke Lake in a few weeks. Northwest High School's (Germantown, MD) Chris Miller defeated some of the better runners from the Northern Region including Abraham Yacob (2nd, 15:42) of Robert E. Lee, Sean McGorty (5th, 15:53) of Chantilly, and Paul Gates of W.T. Woodson (8th, 16:01) as well as top Group AA runners from the Northwest corner of the state in Tommy Curtin (3rd, 15:42) of Loudoun County, Thomas Delaney (4th, 15:51) of John Handley, and Juan Campos (9th, 16:01) of Potomac Falls in his 15:35 victory. While Northwest's Miller was able to create a gap of 7 seconds by the finish line on his nearest competitors, there was no breathing room between Thomas Edison's Myah Hicks and Herndon's Carolyn Hennessey. Hicks was able to repeat as Glory Days Grill Invite champion after winning last year's race on a shorter course in 18:18, but not before having to sprint through the line for a second win due to a hard charging Hennessey as both runners posted matching final times of 18:28. The two led a total of eight others under 19 minutes at the new 5K course including Robert E. Lee freshmen Bailey Kolonich (3rd, 18:38) and Monacan junior Kaila Blackburn (4th, 18:46). It was bragging rights for Fairfax County with two of the county's arguably best group of athletes pulled onto teams with the science & technology magnet school of Thomas Jefferson and private catholic school of Bishop O'Connell. The Thomas Jefferson girls were able to remain unbeaten in invitational competition, but their streak of wins only remained alive after a one point scare from the O'Connell girls. The O'Connell girls were coming off their big win at the Wendy's Invitational in Charlotte, NC with three girls well under 19 minutes and their top three did their job against Thomas Jefferson at Glory Days as well with Sarah McCarthy (6th, 18:50), Devin Nihill (7th, 18:51), and Emily Blagg (14th, 19:12) all finishing among a very tough top 15 to crack into. However, the TJ girls turned the tables on O'Connell with their depth in the fourth and fifth runner spots to make up the points difference lost on O'Connell's front three with a 1:08 top five pack and team score of 91 points to squeak by O'Connell's total of 92 points and 1:24 scoring five spread. The seeded varsity girls' race featured to two favorites to win state cross country team titles in private school O'Connnell and Group A George Mason (3rd, 150 pts), while team champions Thomas Jefferson figure to be one of Group AAA favorite Midlothian's top challengers.

Blake Theroux on third leg for the Western Branch boys and Liana Epstein on anchor leg (5th) for Lake Braddock girls helped their team secure wins to start the season at the first annual Potomac River Running Relay Kick Off held on Thursday afternoon in Centreville, Va. Theroux, the top ranked runner in Group AAA, took the baton in seventh place (he also accidentally dropped his baton 2K into his leg) and gave his team the lead with time to spare with a 9:45 split. Western Branch lost the lead to Centreville on the fourth leg with Yazid Zouaimia running a strong leg with a 10:02 split, but George Matais ran the second fastest leg of the meet to teammate Theroux with a 9:52 anchor as the Group AAA #1 ranked Bruins won by margin of 1 minute and six seconds with West Potomac moving into second late in the race. Epstein (pictured left by Brandon Miles), a defending Northern Region champion in cross country, was given the baton with a slight lead over Thomas Jefferson girls who were running without 2 of their top runners in Sarah Stites and Lisa Junta. The Lake Braddock girls are look to challenge the returning team champions from TJ this season for the regional title and also get back on the state meet podium after a rare 3 year hiatus from a top 3 state meet finish. Epstein, a senior who started running cross country as a sophomore, has been on the podium as an individual but would like to bring her teammates up on the stage as well at Great Meadow. She was the fastest leg in the girls race by 12 seconds at 11:43 as Lake Braddock finished with a total time of 1:02:55 for the win. Read more and rest of coverage from =PR= Relay Kick Off...
Vincent Brown (photo by John Olson) had to settle for narrow runner-up finishes to Jeffrey Artis of Western Branch twice this year for state titles in the hurdles, but now can conclude his high school career with a national title to his name. The recent graduate of South Lakes High School, Brown struck gold in the finals of the young men's 110 meter hurdles at the USATF Junior Olympic National Championships in Greensboro with a 14.00 clocking (-1.5 wind). Brown was the only national champion from Virginia in the meet. Interview with Vincent Brown - Results
As a junior, Richard Smith was primarily running in the shadows of South Lakes teammate Alan Webb with Webb setting national records at the mile and 1000 meter distance in 2001. However, Smith took over the spotlight as a senior in 2002 to exhibit dominance at the half mile distance which arguably has not been seen since in Virginia. Smith won 3 national titles as a high school senior at the Nike Indoor Classic, Adidas Outdoor Championships, and USATF Junior Nationals all at 800 meters. His high school best came at the USATF Junior Nationals in a time of 1:48.94, which ranks only behind state record holder Webb (1:47.74). He had some solid range as well to be an All-State cross country runner and also drop down to run a 48.22 in the 400 and 1:03.88 in the 500. He was a 1000 meter state champion indoors with a 2:28 best and ran some incredible relay legs for South Lakes in the DMR and 4x800 as a junior and senior as a setup man for Webb and closing anchor leg as a senior. Instead of competing collegiately, Smith ended up competing professionally for several years for Nike while getting a degree from Portland State University.

Vincent Brown made a huge drop in his 110 meter hurdle time last year at the end of season MileStat.com Elite Track Gala when he posted a time of 15.03. To think that now he is running almost a full second faster is simply hard to imagine. The South Lakes junior broke 15 seconds for the first time only a few weeks ago at the Allen Johnson Invite, yet all of sudden after this past weekend finds himself knocking on the door of breaking 14 seconds and owning the state's leading performance with his 14.10 clocking at the Draper Invitational. Brown is not the only South Lakes athlete making a name for himself this spring as the boys' team as a whole seems to becoming the school of speed in the Northern Region. His sudden drop in times will only make the AAA State Meet more interesting and competitive in the hurdles this year as Brown is anxious to prove that he belongs right with the best of them.

Frank Afriyie of T.C. Williams was the top individual performer in both throwing events including 140'9" winning mark in the discus. (Photo by Ted Plunkett) The Eleanor Roosevelt girls of Greenbelt, Maryland put on quite a show at the Carolyn Legard Relays held at Westfield High School. They nearly won every relay event possible and did so by wide margins of victory posting impressive early season times on a cold late March day. The ER girls took the 4x100 (48.54), 4x200 (1:41.36), 4x400 (3:54.56), 4x1600 (21:36.69), and DMR (12:37.39) to help them win the team title at Legard Relays quite easily with 80 points. A sweep of the team titles by Eleanor Roosevelt was denied by the Battlefield boys as the school from Haymarket finished the meet with 78 points. A first place in the 4x800 meter relay (8:22.16) and Nike All-American Rex Parker finishing as the top individual performer in both the long jump (20'8.50") and triple jump (43'9") were the top events for the Battlefield team. South Lakes had another great weekend led by Nicholas Vaughn as the Seahawks swept the varsity sprint relay races with winning times of 43.50 in the 4x100, 1:31.14 in the 4x200, and a state leading performance of 3:22.14 in the 4x400. South Lakes also had a 1-2 finish in the high jump from AJ Price (6'2") and Mike Harrell (5'10") as the team just came up short of moving ahead of the Eleanor Roosevelt boys (53 points) in the final team standings with 52 points for second place overall.

On the same track that Sean Holston ran a US #1 500 meter dash time of 1:03.93 at last weekend\'s F.I.T. Invitational, he did it again with another national leading time in the event he considers his specialty in the 300 meter dash. At the Southern Maryland Mega Meet held at Prince George County\'s Sports and Learning Complex, the Robert E. Lee senior put his name on the national leaderboard once again on an unbanked track with a 33.99 clocking in the event.

Today at the USATF National meet held in Eugene, Oregon, high school school phenom Alan Webb from South Lakes HS right here in our very own state of Virginia, won his heat of the 1500 in 3:45.77.
Only South Lakes senior Alan Webb can make a 14:57 on Burke Lake Park 2.98 mile course look easy. After last week shattering the Burke Lake Park course record at the Concorde District Meet with a sizzling 13:57, Webb just put into cruise control.
South Lakes senior Alan Webb just continues to find a way to always outdo his previous top performance. It's going to be hard for him to top his latest. Webb shattered the Burke Lake Park 2.98 Mile Course record by 20 seconds with his time of 13:57.
South Lakes senior Webb runs over hills fast. Give him a pancake course, he goes into lightspeed mode. Thats exactly what he did at the Hagan Stone Park Classic's relatively flat 5K course as he posted the fastest high school 5K time in the nation.
Horrible weather impeds other runners except Alan Webb as he storms through the rain for a 14:59 clocking at Great American.
The 2000 Woodberry Forest Invitational marked the beginning of South Lakes HS senior Alan Webb's final high school cross country season. Webb opened it shattering the course record with his time of 15:18.
