Goethals and Baisden hammer records

Megan Goethals proved once again that she is a ferocious racer, coming back from a three-second deficit on the last lap of the Nike Indoor 2 mile to nail Emily Sisson at the wire, 10:10.14 to 10:10.21. That's a state 2M record, and she passed through 3200m in a state record 10:07.1. It makes her the #5 2-miler in U.S. prep history. En route she broke her own 3000m state record with a 9:34.74.

Meanwhile, in New York, Kendall Baisden led the heats of the 400 with a 54.58, breaking the 54.79 set by Mumford's Jessica Jones on the same track in 2005. Earlier, she ranked 3rd in the 200 heats with her 24.13 (=#3 in Michigan history).
