The Top Athletes To Watch At Flo Golden South


Girls Classic 100

Athletes: Tamari Davis

Breakdown: All eyes will be on the Gainesville (FL) freshman, who will be competing for the first time since the Florida High School Athletic Association Class 3A Championships, where she set a world age group record for 15-year-olds in the 200m in a time of 22.48 (+1.9) seconds. Davis, however, will not be running in the 200m. The freshman phenom will hope to lower her wind-legal 100m best of 11.29 (+0.5) from April at the Pepsi Florida Relays. Recently, Davis ran her third fastest time of the season at the state championships, finishing second to Briana Williams in 11.36 (-0.9) seconds. For reference, the freshman class record in the 100m is 11.24 seconds, last achieved by Angela Williams in 1995. The world age group record for 15-year-olds is 11.13 (+1.7), which was last set by Briana Williams this season. Can Davis approach either record?
