Pat Schellberg, Delbarton NJ, won the Millrose mile last weekend, and will now attempt the double along with McGee.  Schellberg dominated the race from 800 meters and looked stronger as the race progressed.  With a US#1 4:12.43 this season already, the race is his to lose.  Billy Ledder, Gonzaga MD, is the fastest 800 runner in the nation right now with a 1:54.21, and could use his speed if he is in the race at the end.  Thomas Kehl, Father Judge PA, has a US#5 4:13.48 this year and will be looking for a better race than Millrose last week.  Alex Hatz, Fayettville-Manlius NY, is in shape after coming back from injury.  Hatz has a US#3 2:30.27 to his credit in the 1000 and looks primed for a solid run in the mile.  A pair of Texans and a Californian are making the trek to Boston to begin their indoor seasons.  Craig Lutz, Flower Mound TX, comes into the race with a 4:14.59 1600 PR.  Will Antkowiak, Brenham TX, has an outdoor PR of 4:13.72 in the 1600.  Ammar Moussa, Arcadia CA, the USATF JO XC champ, comes into the race with an outdoor 1600 PR of 4:14.73.    John Gregorek, Seekonk MA, boasts a 4:15.18 1600 PR and has run 2:34.75 for the 1000 this season.  Giving the race a bit of international flavor are Adam Cotton, Penkridge, England, and Thomas De Vries, London, Cananda.  Cotton has a 3:58 1500 PR and ran 1:52.98 for 800 at the World Youth Champs in Italy last summer.  De Vries has a 3:56.63 1500 PR.



New Balance Games Previews

in the girls 4x400 US#1 Benjamin Cardozo (NY) and US#2 Medgar Evers (NY) have clashed all season, most recently with the thrilling finish and Cardozo win at the Millrose Games, making this race a can't miss event.  US#3 Mount Vernon (NY) will keep them honest, having run 3:53.36, just over a second back from Evers.  US#4 Columbia (NJ) and US#5 Dewitt Clinton (NY) will also look to mix it up.   

The roles are swapped in the fast-paced 4x200 relay with Medgar Evers (NY) holding the US#1 position and US#2 Cardozo (NY) chasing them from just over a second back.  US#5 Mount Vernon (NY) and US#7 Delcastle (DE) will be in the race as well.  US#13 Suffern (NY) and US#15 Swenson (PA) round out the field.

The 1000 meter run has the potential to be a barn-burner.  Marielle Hall (NJ) has been on a tear this indoor season, most recently running a US#2 2:12.55 in the 800 meter run at the Colgate Finals, making her a favorite to win this race and set a US#1 mark in the process.  Pushing her will be Kathleen Lautzenheiser (VA), US#9 in the 1000, Kelsey Margey (NY), US#5 in the 800, and Molly McNamara (NJ), US#9 in the 800.  Lindsay Crevoiserat (CT), US#13 in the 1000, will also be in the hunt, as will US#17 Marie Johnston (VA) and US#22 Olicia Williams (NY)

Boys Preview:  The boys junior 300 meter dash is one of many highlights this weekend at the Armory, but it is a big one!  The star of the show is Pennsylvania speedster Brady Gehret (PA), who is ranked US#1 in the 400 and US#2 in the 200.  Patrick Farmer (NY) is US#2 in the 400, but was #1 until Brady began his season.  The race also features Blake Heriot (OH), US#3 in the 200 and Fuquwan Greene (NC), US#4 in the 200.  John Thomas (NY), who has a goal of setting the indoor national record in the 300, has the perfect race in which to do it.  This race is stacked and promises to be a thriller!

The boys junior 600 meter dash features 3 of the top-5 600 meter runners in the country.  US#2 Mike Quercia (NY), US#3 Randy Patterson NY), and US#4 Reginald Mortal (NY) will be screaming around the track for dominance of this event.  A serious challenge could come from 800 US#5 Quincy Downing (OH) and Keith Griffith (NJ), US#3 in the 400 meter dash.  Tevonne Hemmans (NY), US#9 in the 600, will also be in the race.

Zavon Watkins (NY) will be defending his US#1 position in the 1000 meter run against some competition sure to bring the fastest time of the season.  The race also features 800 meter specialists Anthony Kostelac (VA) and Tom Mallon (PA), both sub-1:50 relay split guys last year.  Also posing a challenge will be 1000 US#5 Cody Snyder (VA) and 1000 US#8 Blake Theroux (VA).

In the boys 4x200 meter relay the top 4 teams in the nation will square off in the same race for mid-season bragging rights.  Sheepshead Bay (NY) leads them all with a US#1 time of 1:29.  Within .69 seconds are US#2 Newburgh Free Academy (NY), US#3 Medgar Evers (NY), and US#4 Cheltenham (PA).  This race seems destined for a serious time drop.

The boys 4x400 will be no less exciting with US#1 Cheltenham (PA) and US#2 Newburgh (NY) squaring off in the same race.  US#5 Abington (PA), US#6 Columbia (NJ), US#11 Boys & Girls (NY), and US#17 Mount Vernon (NY) will also be in the hunt.

In the boys 4x800 US#3 Liverpool (NY) and US#5 Burnt Hills (NY) could push each other to some seriously fast times on the Armory track.  US#9 Abington (PA) will look to prove they are as good as their win in the Millrose Games relay last weekend with a 8:01, fast for the MSG track.  St. Anthony's (NY), US#11, will also be in the race.

In the junior boys weight throw US#2 Bret Hardin is the top-ranked athlete, but shares the status of favorite with Alec Faldermeyer (NY), who has been throwing the 35-lb weight really far this season.  Also throwing will be James Hall, US#9, and Tyler Prendergast, US#10.
