The 2007 Clemson High School indoor invitational, set for January 27, is a South Carolina High School League sanctioned event.
It was an attack of the sub 11 two milers from the Virginia girls this weekend with three runners dipping well under the 11 minutes this weekend. Homeschooled junior star Aurora Scott ran a US #1 time of 10:29.12 at the Asics Invitational in Lynchburg, while Deep Run senior Courtlin LaReau challenged her through a 5:12 first mile and held on for a US #3 time of 10:45.86. Incredibly both were newbies to the event indoors with this weekend being Scott\'s first indoor meet. Meanwhile, Chantilly sophomore Lia DiValentin clocked a US #5 time of 10:49.11 on Friday evening at UNC\'s Eastern Challenge.
The state of Virginia was well represented at the Eastern Challenge held at the University of North Carolina\'s Eddie Smith Fieldhouse in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. While conceding the sprint and hurdle events to North Carolina athletes, Virginians swept the distance events with winners and many top finishers in the 1000, 1600, and 3200 meter races for both and girls as well as the 4x800 meter relay. In field events action, Virginia had several meet champions beating some strong competition.
The Eastern High School Challenge at the Eddie Smith Field House showcased some of NC\'s finest track and field athletes. 5 athletes set new US #1 marks for the 2007 indoor season.
