For the first time in its short history the girl's Dream Mile at the Adidas Grand Prix fulfilled its promise to produce some all-time performances.
A pair of high school juniors were the highlights of Saturday's boys Dream Mile, but it didn't include the one who everyone expected.

Brooklyn's Boys & Girls High School was right at home in New York City tonight at the Washington Heights Armory. The Kangaroos, long known for their success in the sprint relays (they are defending champs in the 1600 meter relay), notched a new title on their belt with an exhilarating come-from-behind win in the 3200 meter relay.
All morning, the buzz at the Armory around the boys 4 x mile was focused on two powerhouse programs that have dominated distance running in recent years. It was a two-horse race, the chatter went, and whichever favorite emerged – Shaker High School or New Jersey's Christian Brothers Academy – would also own a new national record.

Compared to last year's disappointment at the outdoor national meet, this year's let-down doesn't come close for Delaware's Tatnall School.
Michigan runners dominated the girls distance events at the Armory last night, as the first day of the New Balance Indoor Nationals got underway.

Jantzen Oshier led most of the race until Lukas Verzbicas (IL) took over the lead in the final lap.
As a record-breaking high jumper and a dynamic dunker for Oxford High School’s track & field and basketball teams, respectively, Justin Fondren, perhaps more than anything else, relies on a fearlessness when he leaves his feet.
