The Lake Braddock Boys and South County Girls were crowned the inaugural winners of the Conference 7 Championship at Episcopal High School in Alexandria on Saturday.
At the 2012 Gojekian Twilight Classic, Mary Cate Scully set a brisk pace for the first 1600 meters of her 3200 meters and kept it going for another 1600 meters to have a big breakthrough performance with a PR time of 10:54. Her season several weeks after that meet was derailed and cut short due to injury, which forced her to play catch up in cross country and during much of her senior season to regain that form shown in that 10:54 3200 effort. Nonetheless, Scully was able to be a valuable and significant contributor to the South County girls in both their indoor and outdoor state team titles
The indoor state team champions South County will be strong favorites to become outdoor state champions as well with one of the greatest and most versatile athletes in Virginia high school track & field history on their squad in Felecia Majors able to win the state meet by herself as she did during the indoor state championships back in February. Majors is slated to compete in 7 events over the two day meet between four field events in the pole vault, high jump, long jump, and triple jump along with the 100, 200, and 400 meter dashes. Majors is a defending state champion in the pole vault, long jump, 400, and 200, while she is definitely capable of being All-State and challenging for first in the high jump, triple jump, and 100 meter dash. South County has other individuals and relays qualified for the meet (but all their relays will be without Majors now maxed out with 3 individual running events). Athletes with the best chances to possibly add a few more points for South County will be Morgan Knight in the pole vault and 100 meter hurdles as well as Mary Cate Scully in the 1600. Majors scored 49 points among 6 individual events at the 2013 VHSL Group AAA State Indoor Championships and added a few more points as leg on the 4x400 meter relay. Entered in 7 individual events for this weekend's 2013 VHSL Group AAA State Championships, Majors is likely to shatter any existing record of most points scored by any individual in one meet in AAA state meet history.
Virtual meet rankings for Group AA girls and all four regions (Central, Eastern, Northern, Northwest) scoring all events through 8 places based off performances in the MileStat.com database as of May 1st. With Sophie Chase back healthy and running strong including her Penn Relays 3K repeat last week, the Lake Braddock girls are in much better position to challenge their Patriot District rivals from South County, who still have Felecia Majors who can compete for individually state titles in the 100, 200, 400, pole vault, long jump, and triple jump this spring.
Felecia Majors and the rest of her South County teammates traveled southbound this past weekend while on spring break to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and competed in the Beach Run Invitational. It turned out that Majors and South County were not only on vacation time while down in Myrtle Beach, but getting fast times as well. Majors dominated the meet in numerous events just like she does almost every weekend back home in Virginia including wins in the pole vault (11'0") and long jump (19'6"), but in particular, Majors really took it up a notch on the track with the fastest performances that we have ever seen from her.
Was the Lake Braddock girls' depth in the distance events enough to topple Felecia Majors and the South County girls in MileStat.com's depth team rankings (scoring 25 deep in each event) for the 2012-2013 indoor track season?
After her performance this past weekend at the 2013 Virginia High School League Group AAA State Indoor Track & Field Championships in Hampton, South County senior Felecia Majors may have cemented herself as the greatest of all-time in Virginia high school track history. Majors scored the most points ever in the history of the state meet as her 49 points among 6 individual events propelled the South County team by herself to the state team title. MileStat.com interviewed Majors following their historic septuple (meaning 7 events) at the Boo Williams Sportsplex in Hampton, Virginia this past weekend for the Virginia high school 3A indoor state meet, which puts her strongly in the discussion as the greatest all-around and overall female track & field athlete in the state's history.
US #5 performer Anna Williams of Thomas Edison leads all competitors into this weekend's state championships in the girls' triple jump. The Northern Region champion Williams earlier this winter joined a select group of past Virginians to have leaped over 40 feet in the event with her 40'3" win at the Virginia Tech Invitational. Williams is coming off a regional title against one of her toughest challengers for the state meet in multi-event star Felecia Majors. The Columbia University recruit Williams hit her second best mark of the season at 39'6.50" last Saturday.

Northern Region virtual meet pre-season preview for the upcoming 2012-2013 indoor track & field season. Virtual meet pre-season preview includes the top 8 returning individual performers from the 2011-2012 indoor season performances (relays are not included). South County's Felecia Majors won quite a few state title last year as a junior (5 total-3 outdoor & 2 indoor). The state's most versatile athlete is back to see if she can double her state title count this year.
Photo by Ryan Kelly South County junior Felecia Majors is becoming the Queen of Versatility in Virginia high school track & field. Majors, who has dominated the Northern Region in their past two championship meets indoors and outdoors, has taken her winning to the state level. At last weekend's VHSL Group AAA State Indoor Championships, Majors took home a pair of individual state titles in the pole vault and long jump to become her school's first state champion in any sport. She nearly won a third state championship in the meet with a close runner-up finish in the 500 meter dash. Majors also became the first girls' vaulter ever from the Northern Region to clear over 12. After being just one of the legs on South County's great relays from a year ago, Majors has really elevated herself individually to be considered as one of the state's best returning track athletes for 2013. As a freshmen, her coaches did not initially think she could do much for them in the field events, but fast forward two years later and Major is the first pole vault-long jump girls' champion in AAA state meet history. MileStat.com interviewed Majors following with her double state title performance.
Western Branch girls still remain well out in front as the top ranked team in Group AAA and will be favorites to repeat as state champions this upcoming weekend at Sports Backers Stadium. Trailing Western Branch is two more Eastern Region squads in Phoebus and Grassfield, while teams capable of breaking up an Eastern Region top 3 trophy sweep include Cosby, Thomas Dale, Lake Braddock, Osbourn Park, and South County. Ahmed Bile and John Jenkins along with their 4x400 meter relay have the Annandale boys as the slight favorite over indoor state champions Atlee heading into next weekend, while First Colonial and Colonial Forge could be threats capable of scoring near 40 points.
Annandale senior John Jenkins ran one of the fastest times in state history in the 110 meter hurdles this week at the Patriot District Championships. Jenkins joined a short list of past Virginians to have broken 14 seconds in Wednesday's prelims with a 13.96 performance, but then followed that great race with an even better one in the finals with a US #10 clocking of 13.86. His time is the fastest in Virginia since Rickey Harris of Centreville set the current state record of 13.50 in 2000. Jenkins also won the 300 meter hurdles title at the Patriot District Meet with a personal best time of 38.61 to help Annandale boys to the team title with 164 points. South County girls won big as expected with 184 points led by 1-2 finishes from teammates Felicia Majors and Loren Dyer in the 100, 200, and 400 meter dashes as well as taking the top two places in the long jump and triple jump.

#1 and #2 ranked teams face off for the first time this season to settle the debate (for now at least) at Saturday's Manhattan Invitational. Jamestown and Oakton boys have been head and shoulders better than the rest of the competition so far this fall, but both will have their hands full when they race against each other and a loaded field at the Manhattan Invitational. Meanwhile, Glory Days Grill Invitational will feature 6 schools which are ranked among the top 10 currently led by the Octoberfest champs from James Robinson, who are racing in their fourth major invitational in as many weekends and so far have improved their team performance each weekend.
Photo by Ted Plunkett At the Monroe Parker Invitational on Tuesday afternoon, the individual race for first among the boys was a thriller between Chantilly's Chris Foley and Thomas Edison's Leoule Degfae with both runners timed at 15:27 on the 2.98 mile course. With Degfae being more middle distance geared as a 1:54 half miler, it was a surprise for the crowd at Burke Lake to see the All-State 2 miler Foley reel in Degfae in the final loop to the finish and sprint past him for the win in the final strides.
