Levonte Whitfield (Jones FL) dashed to a 10:15 clocking in the 100m to best Kendal Williams (Stanton FL), 10.18, with a +3.5 wind.  That is some serious speed for mid-March!  But it wasn't over then as the two battled in the 200m as well with Kendal Williams getting the best of Levonte Whitfield in that one with times of 20.63 to 20.66 with a +2.5 wind.  Watch out for Florida as the weather warms up!
