  • Alcorta spring breaks a 10:19 3200, hoping for Brooks PR bid

    West Springfield (VA) senior Caroline Alcorta decided instead of traveling far for her spring break, she would be traveling fast at her nearby track for the Leslie Sherman Memorial Invite hosted on Thursday at her high school in Springfield, Virginia. Alcorta, an New Balance Nationals All-American from last spring in the two mile as well as the Foot Locker South Champion and Foot Locker All-American (third in the finals at Balboa Park) in the fall, set a torrid pace in the 3200 meter run at the Leslie Sherman Memorial Invite on Thursday to run her fastest 3200 time ever at 10:19 to move her into a US top 10 ranking.

  • Arcadia Boys 3200 Preview: Can anyone stop Cerake?

    It seems that there is a lot of talk about the Girls 3200m run that will be awesome this weekend in Arcadia. Can Alexa Efraimson break Kim Mortensen's record of 9:48.59 from 1996? Can anyone else even hang with Alexa (maybe Baxter, Maxwell)? Though, to be fair, the Boys 3200m is going to be just as exciting. Why? Because it'll feature Cerake Geberkidane.

  • Video: Luke Winder clears US #2 17'5" in pole vault

    Luke Winder, a senior at Plainfield Central High School in Illinois, cleared a US #2 indoor height of 17'5" at the Bolingbrook Fast Times Invitational on Saturday. The new personal best clearance for Winder puts him just outside of the US top 10 all-time list in the event. Winder had been building towards a performance like this all winter after clearing heights from 16'1" to 16'8" in the first month of indoor competition prior to putting together two consecutive meets with personal bests over 17 feet leading up to Saturday's competition.
