Andrew Hendrix grabbed the North Carolina flag from one side of the medal podium. His twin brother Anthony snatched the American flag from the other end. They both took off, along with Fuquawn Greene and Miles Sparks for the only victory lap of the entire meet.
Trevor Dunbar made his move with just over two laps to go and no could have expected it would look quite the way it did. No one could have expected that the senior from Alaska's Kodiak High would drop the curtain on the race, that he would bury everyone before the bell lap.
GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Even when Solomon Haile didn’t look as indestructible as people have been accustomed to, his pace still proved abusive to those that followed. Even when his stride length shortened and his lead shrank, he surged again and stifled any hope of chasing him down.

Is one noted Floridan’s national record destined to be taken down by another Floridian? “Youbetcha,” say flocks of Sunshine State track fans who’ve been fortunate enough to see Ebony Eutsey in full flight. The sensational junior at Miami’s Southridge High School has been a state champion since her freshman year and heads to the Nike Outdoor Nationals in Greensboro, N.C. as both America’s fastest girls scholastic 400-meter runner (at 52.42) and a soon-to-be threat to Sanya Richards’s USA all-time girls best (50.69) notched for St. Thomas Aquinas of Fort Lauderdale in 2002.
Start List for the 2009 Midwest Distance Gala being run in Lisle, Illinois on Saturday.
Version 5.0 of the Midwest Distance Gala is taking place this weekend on the campus of Benedictine University in Lisle, Illinois. This year’s version looks to be bigger and better than last year’s version and shows that this meet, which started with just 37 finishers the first year, is growing quickly and the quality of the fields assembled is unbelieveable. This year there are storylines by the dozen and the main one looks to be a match-up that has been building since last cross-country season.
Surpassing the three individual state titles (3,000-, 1,500- and 1,000-meter runs) he earned during the indoor season would be a feat in itself. Westerly senior Andrew Springer did just that at Saturday’s Rhode Island Outdoor Track and Field Championships and also received an added bonus.
