Alabama breakdown at Nike Indoor Nationals

Nike Indoor Nationals (2007-03-10) more...

Landover @ Prince George's Sports & Learning Center



Alabama was well represented this weekend at Nike Indoor Nationals.  On the Girls side of things, Mountain Brook sent a standout girls 4x800 team that places 2nd with a time of 9:08.38 and 3rd in the Distance Medley Relay (DMR) with a time of 12:02.79.  Alexandra Morgan continued to hit the mark of 5-07 taking 3rd in the High Jump.  Erica Whitby of Smiths Station cleared 5-05 down one inch from her performance at AHSAA Indoor State.

Not to be outdone by the ladies, Alabama Boys mounted stellar performances this past weekend also.  Hoover stood out by putting in it’s ever strong mile squad that placed 5th in the 4x1600 with a time of 18:22.  You can hear a post race interview here.  Jake Stephens coming off a successful Indoor State Meet finished 6th in the 800m with a time of 1:55.44.  Chris Bilbrew of Smith Station entering with both a US#1 800m and anchoring the US#1 4x800m relay ended up taking 2nd Place in both.  A post race interview of this team will be posted soon.

Congrats to the athletes of Alabama that represented our state at Nike Indoor.  I look forward to seeing you all run outdoors this season and Ill be seeing you all at state.
