Four High School Records Set
BOSTON (AP) _ Dominique Calloway of Denver, Colo., set two national high school records Sunday while winning the 60-meter hurdles title at the National Scholastic Indoor Track and Field Championships.
Calloway ran 8.50 in her winning semifinal heat to break the national record of 8.52 set last year by Joyce Bates of Philadelphia. Calloway then lowered her hour-old record to 8.34 in winning the final. Bates came in second at 8.43.
Muir High School of Pasadena, Calif., won three relays and set two national records for coach Clyde Turner.
After clocking a record 3:25.90 in the sprint medley relay Saturday, Muir won the boys’ 800-meter relay Sunday in 1:28.91, the fourth-best time ever. Then the fearsome foursome of Jucorie Tryon, Sultan McCullough, Makio Haywood and Obea Moore ran 3:13.34 in the boys 1,600-meter relay to break their own record of 3:14.84, set on Feb. 16.
Moore, a junior, has qualified for the 1996 U.S. Olympic trials in the 400 meters, where he will face world-class competitors such as Michael Johnson.
Wilson High School, of Long Beach, Calif., set a national record in the girls’ 1,600-meter relay. The foursome of Veronica Calloway, Latrice Borders, Joni Smith and Kinshasa Davis clocked 3:44.38 to easily break the mark of 3:46.59 set in 1982 by Central High School of Seat Pleasant, Md.
Sophomore Angela Williams of Walnut, Calif., won the 60 meters in 7.32 and the 200 meters in 23.73. Both times were the second best in U.S. high school history.
Tamieka Grizzle of New York, won her third straight national 800-meter title. Her time of 2:04.90 is the second-best U.S. high school time ever after Mary Decker’s 2:01.7 in 1974.
Michael Granville of Bell Garden, Calif., won his third straight boys’ 800-meter title in 1:51.26.
