Their were plenty of record-breaking athletes at the 2004 addition of the Jesuit-Sheaner Relays. The question became could they perform in less than desirable conditions. Brad Sellers (Arlington Bowie) got things going early in the Discus competition. Brad had a season best throw of 183-09. That mark beats his best throw he had last year at the State Meet (181-01) in which he earned second place. Brad was not athlete doing great things. Jason Richardson had a monster day. He easily won the 110HH in an amazing time of 13.63. This makes third time this year that Jason has broken the magic 14 second barrier in the 110's. He came back in the 300H and broke 37 for the first time this season in 36.74. That great mark puts him on top in the Rankings.  Jason was not done yet as he ran a sizzling second leg in the 4x400. I clocked Jason at 47.XX on video. He helped Cedar Hill win the relay with a time of 3:18.64.

There were also some great performances in the distance races. Scott MacPherson ran a great 3200-1600 double. He outran a game Brett Olson in the 3200 in the windy morning conditions. Scott came through 4:31 at the 1600. He came back and overpowered everyone in the 1600 with even splits going out the first 800 in 2:08 and finishing in 4:17.30. Jake Morse looked very impressive in the 800, He ran the elite time of 1:54.63 with no one in contention. 

For the first time ever the Jesuit-Sheaner meet had an Invitational 1600 for the girls. The race turned out to be the fastest 1600 race ran in Texas for about 20 years. The race had an amazing 7 Elite performers. The race featured 4 of the 5 top 1600 runners in the State. The pace went out honest in a 71.xx by Miranda Walker. In the third lap Brooke Upshaw threw in a huge surge that broke the pack. Erin Bedell was the only one that went with Brooke. Than in an amazing last lap Erin ran a 64.XX to leave no doubt. Erin won in 4:49.9 out distancing Brooke who ran a fast time of 4:53.1.
