    He is just a junior, but is giving up the sport after this season to focus on football.
    Also ran 10.18w (2.1) at TX Relays

        • In Day 1 of the Georgia state champs (8 classes in 4 locations), Brunswick sr Riyon Rankin takes down the 20yo Dothel Edwards HJ state meet record -- and claims the national lead at the same time -- with a 7-3.75 in Class 6A. His old PR was 7-2. http://milesplit.live/meets/552223/events/2/results/F/M

            Watched the video (https://www.firstcoastnews.com/video...f-e1912ee04214).

            One can see from the lack of technical refinement that there should be lots more there!

            • 10th-grader Maurice Gleaton (Langston Hughes HS, Fairburn) 10.14 (+0.5) at GA state meet (6A) today ... I think that's a soph-class HSR. He had run legal 10.37 and 20.52 this spring, plus a 10.16 nwi.

              • Have to give a shout out to Refugio's Ernest Campbell (a junior), who just ran 10.22 (w2.0) in the UIL 2A state meet 100 and set a division record.

                Refugio has a strong track and field history, but was almost destroyed in Hurricane Harvey in 2017. Enrollment is just over 200.

                  • Today is the CIF southern section meet at Moorpark High - home of the "magic strip of 100 meters". This is where Rodrick Pleasant ran his 10.14 last year, and he's back today after a mostly quiet spring. Seems to be coming to form. Conditions look to be good, won't know about the wind until I get there.
                    Sadie Engelhart is the other big name in the meet, but this meet tends to have as much depth as any sectional meet in the country. Like '22, Sadie is running the 8 and 16 in the post-season, as well as anchoring Ventura's 4x4.
                    Last year, internet access was pretty pathetic, so I may not be able to post as things happen. We shall see.

                    • After running 8:41.50 for 3200m last week in a fast, deep invitational 3200 in mid-Michigan (Shepherd), Grand Rapids Ottawa Hills sr Benne Anderson went for a sub-4 mile last night in his Ottawa-Kent Gold conference meet, according to Jeff Hollobaugh's reports on his Michtrack.org twitter (https://twitter.com/michtrack). It was a 1600m race, but a special finish line was set up just beyond for a full mile, he said. Anderson crossed 1600 in 4:01.60 (# 2 in state history behind Grant Fisher), then 4:03.04 for the mile.

                      • Weather is always fun... UIL state meet in Texas, 6A (largest classification) girls 3200 was stopped mid-race due to lightning.

                          Memories of the Rosa twins from NJ who, IIRC, were running near 3200m record pace with a couple of laps left when the race had to be halted because of lightning.

                            Looks like they're finally going to resume at 1pm CT ... close to a 3 hr delay, I think.

                              Do they line up the girls from the 3200 in the same spots they were in when the event was stopped and fire the gun again? :-)

                                That would be interesting, wouldn't it! But no, they re-ran it.

                                Meanwhile, in Georgia 7A state meet this afternoon, Westlake soph Sidi Njie blasts a HSL 45.46, knocking more than a half-second off his PR. I think only Tyrese Cooper (45.38 in '17) has run faster among 10th-graders.
