Michigan at Nationals - Anzelone scares record

This just in from Boston: Gabrielle Anzelone, after leading the Nike Nationals 5000m most of the distance, finished second in 17:04.48, just missing Marissa Treece's state record of 17:04.32. Watch the video: click here.

Also, Hannah Meier and twin Haley Meier took 1-2 in the 9th grade mile, Hannah clocking 4:56.91 (full mile, not 1600m), with Haley at 5:00.01. Hannah broke Shannon Osika's 9th grade mile record, and got the 1500 standard to boot (4:38.39 FAT). Watch the video: click here.

Austin Whitelaw ran the 5000m in 15:47.31, shy of the 15:19.04 he ran last year, but since he's the first junior we know of to run the event, that's an 11th grade record. Watch the video: click here.

In New York, at the other national championships, Alysha Johnson added more than a foot to her shot best to place third with a toss of 43-5.25.
