but nobody has come close to bettering Michael Carter’s 70’ ¼” shot put
record he set at Jesuit-Sheaner Relays, back in March of 1979.
Last year to suggest that anyone would or could break the 70’ 0¼” mark was laughable. But
Saturday, March 28th, Stephen Saenz is coming to
Record breaker is Matt Kosecki, Humble
two rare, outstanding athletes that are coming to Dallas for the Jesuit-Sheaner
Relays. Both are 2008 High School All-Americans. Come see them in competition
Saturday morning 8:30 and 11:00 am at the Jesuit-Sheaner Relays, 12345 Inwood
... Add Corey Jones, Boonville MO to the list of stand out throwers. Corey, ranked US#5 in 2008, was the '08 Missouri State Champion with shot put of 66' 3¾".
anyone know how much effort is put into training, the number of meets,
competitions and runs, over a four year period, before a
top competition will be Ashley Isham, Cedar
She will be at the Jesuit-Sheaner too making this an event you don't want to
She will be at the Jesuit-Sheaner too making this an event you don't want to miss.
The “Luke's Locker Elite Girls 1600 Meter Run” will start at 4:15 at Jesuit-Sheaner Relays. It will be worth the price of a ticket to see her and the girls in the “Elite 1600 Meter Race”.
Goodwin and Kyle Clemons - THE 2008 STATE MEET “SUPERMEN”
medaled in five events, winning the long jump with a fantastic jump of 26’ 1½”, won the triple jump 50’ 0”, 2nd in the 100 meter dash, ran
a leg on the third place 4x200 relay and a leg on the winning 4X100 Relay.
Rowlett had the nation’s best time in the 4x100, 40.26 in 2008. Marquise is a
returning high school All-American entered in Saturday’s, March 28th
Jesuit-Sheaner Relays. Kyle Clemons won the State Meet
400 meters and has the US#2 time this week. Kyle ran on the relays with Marquise. He is entered in the
and Kyle along with the other two relay runners propelled Rowlett to the class
5A State Meet team championship.
Marquise will have competition at the Jesuit-Sheaner Relays. In the 100 meters, Look for up and coming young sprinters, Chris Bain (Jr.), Justin Northwest and freshman Corey Bassett (Fr.), Plano East. Quite a race here. In the 4A division Skye Dawson, Dallas Christian, running in the 4A Division, has a 10.29 this year and is ranked #3 in Texas. He will be challenged by Darius Jones and Aaron Franklin coming in from Marshall out East Texas way.
Look for Kenith Roseman, TC-Cedar Hill in the jumps too; he has already gone 23' 10" and 48' 7". He wants the meet record of 50' 6"set by Brandel Lawrence, DeSoto in 1999.
Long Jump and Triple jump start at 8:00 am. Running finals begin 2:30 pm.
Local boys will provide plenty
of competition. Michael McLeod, Denton Ryan, won the 4A pole vault
competition last year at the Jesuit-Sheaner Relays and Hayden Clark,
Southlake Carroll won the 5A Division. Both are returning to the Relays this
year. Other outstanding area vaulters are Luke Beck, Royce City, Boston
Spiva, Arlington, Sam Retzloff and Chris Thompson of Argyle,
and Casey Wicker of Jesuit….all of these local boys have cleared 15’
or better in competition. Vince’s top height last year through early May was
15’ 6”…now 16’ 11”.
Probably, Vince’s toughest
competition will come from out-of-the-area vaulters. 2008 UIL 4A State Meet pole
vault champion, Jared Parker, Vidor High School, who cleared 16’ 6”
last year, Logan Cunningham, who cleared 16’ 4” last
year, and teammate 16 footer Landon Ferguson from Smithson Valley, the 2008 Louisiana State Meet Champion, Joseph Caraway,
Lacassine High School, this year’s LSU Indoor Meet Pole Vaulting Champion,
The Frawley family is not
finished. Another son, Vince’s twin brother, Eric Frawley has cleared
16’ 5” this year and is presently ranked 2nd in the state. He also is in the
The Frawley brothers will have their hands full with not only the locals but with the out-of-towners. Their older brother Nick Frawley holds the current 4A Pole Vault Record at Jesuit-Sheaner Relays with a clearing height of 16’ 8” set in 2006. Nick went on to win the 4A State Meet vaulting championship. Back in 2006, I told the younger boys that they would have to break brother’s record. They just nodded and indicated they would. Then I didn’t believe they would get this close but now I know they can.
...Add Jack Whitt, Norman North OK. 2008 All-American and leads the nation this year with jump of 17' 10¾"
Vaulting competition will begin at 1:00 pm. Both
Divisions, all classification pole vaulters, vault together at one time.
RELAYS – Everybody in this
meet wants a shot at running in the finals with Rowlett in the 5A 4x100
Relays. Last year Rowlett had the best time in the nation in the 4x100,
and won the 5A State Meet 4x100 Championship. And they still have
All-American Marquise Goodwin and the 5A State Meet 400 meter champion on their
HURDLES – You can’t have a
better high school competitor in the hurdles than Chance Casey, Crosby
the 2008 All-American and defending State Champion in both events. The top area
and out-of-the area hurdlers will test him.
JUMPS – 2008 State Meet
Champion Toddrick Allen of Plano East has gone 7'0" and Jared
Colbert, Arl. Seguin has cleared 6'10" this season for the TX#1 and
TX#2 rankings. All-American Marquise Goodwin, the 5A State Meet Champion, 50’ 0”, and Kenith
Roseman, Trinity Christian Cedar Hill, 48’ 7” will put on quite a show
in the Triple Jump. They all could break the record of 50’ 6” set by
Brandel Lawrence, DeSoto in 1999.
There are so many good runners
in these events that you must conclude that some very good runners will not
medal. Chris Brown, Southlake Carroll, Anthony Groom, Grapevine, Austin
Roth, Lake Highlands, Stephen Curry, Argyle, Austin Roth, Lake
Highlands, Juan Sanchez of Plano, Jim Stitt, Mansfield
Timberview, Nathan Collier, Pottsboro and Zachary Ornelas, Vista
Ridge and Louisiana State Meet winner, Matt Wolfe, Boozier Parkway head
the list, and are among the best in the state in their event.
