Sasha Wallace

By Stephen Underwood

As we get current on the new DyeStat.com, we catch up on the 2013 indoor season to date, with New Balance Indoor Nationals looming ahead next weekend.  Third in this series is the girls’ sprints and hurdles.

55/60 Hurdles

Hall/Wallace rematch looms

The Dior Hall-Sasha Wallace showdown at Brooks last Sunday was pretty much as good as advertised, with Wallace Sasha Wallace, shown at last year's NBNI, is now #3 all-time after beating Dior Hall.  Photorun.net photopulling off the mild upset, 8.18 to 8.21.  Hall, the George Washington (Denver) junior, had come in with her 8.17 PR this winter than made her #2 all-time.  But instead of shaving a few more hundredths off for a USR, she was edged by the Castro Valley (Calif.) senior – who herself became #3 all-time in the process.  It hardly could have been a better race.

Unless you’re Hall, that is.  But she’ll have the perfect chance to avenge her loss at New Balance Nationals Indoor, where she’ll try and defend her 2012 crown.  Fans will recall the win last year by Hall being a dramatic upset over Trinity Wilson, the Californian who’d won Simplot and been World Youth 100H champ in 2011.  Wilson was fourth in that race and her fellow Golden Stater – Wallace – was second at 8.35.  Wallace has improved since, obviously, prefacing her Brooks win with an 8.24 earlier at U-W and a Simplot win.

Also making waves

  • Skylar Ross-Ransom – The Brooks PR 60H might have been as big for this Langham Creek (Houston) senior as it was for Wallace and Hall.  Ross-Ransom ran 8.50 at Brooks in 2012 and had a best of 8.67 this winter before last weekend, so her third-place finish in 8.33 opened some eyes.  At 100H last spring, she was New Balance Nationals Outdoor champ in 13.59.
  • Kendell Williams –The hurdles is just part of the big picture for this Kell (Marietta, Ga.) senior.  Williams is now the national record-holder in the heptathlon outdoors and the two-time NBNI pentathlon champ indoors, but her extreme individual talents include the hurdles, where she ran an 8.35 at Brooks in taking fourth.  She is also US#3 over 55H at 7.93.
  • Leah Lott-Chantel Ray – These two hurdlers have had a great rivalry in Virginia this year.  That culminated at the AAA state meet, where Lott (Landstown, Virginia Beach) edged Ray (Hampton), 7.84 to 7.88 – the US#1-2 times for the year.  Outside of en route times at 60H national championship races, they are two of the best 55H marks of the past decade.


Peek ahead to NBNI
It’s pretty simple after what we mentioned above – a national record will be on the line when Hall and Wallace have their rematch this coming weekend.  Ross-Ransom (seventh last year), Williams (fifth), Lott and Ray will back up the favorites among a monster group of entrants.  Five of the eight finalists, in all, return from 2012.



Long Sprints (200 through 600)

Eyes on Baird

Ever since she opened eyes wide last summer with a 51.04 400 at the IAAF World Junior Champs, #5 all-time and the fastest since Sanya Richards’ USR in 2002, Kadecia Baird has been earmarked as the long sprinter to watch during 2013.  This indoor campaign, the Medgar Evers (Brooklyn, N.Y.) senior has had her moments, but it probably hasn’t been the smooth performance arc she’d hoped for.

She started the winter with a fast early-season 39.22 300 at Bishop Loughlin in December.  But in the big Hispanic Games 400 in January, she injured her hamstring and did not finish.  Fortunately, the injury healed fairly quickly and Baird was back on the track in early February, where she blitzed a US#1 37.54 300 in the Armory Collegiates, second only to Francena McCorory on the all-time national list.  She ran nearly as fast at the PSAL meet with a 38.00.

Then at the NY state meet this past weekend, she won the 55 in 7.08 – just off a recent 7.06 best as she’s been trying the shorter dashes – but then false started in the 300 final.  That ruined another great battle with Cardozo rival Deajah Stevens, who also won the Hispanic 400.  In fact, Stevens is near the top of the national lists in three events, the 200, 300 and 400.  They could race again at NBNI in the 200 and in relays, but neither is entered in the 400.

Also making waves

  • Felicia Majors – After Baird’s 300, the best long-sprint performance this winter arguably belongs to this South County (Lorton, Va.) senior, who at Virginia Tech blasted a US#1 1:12.57, #7 all-time.  Of course, the larger story with Majors is the incredible array of events in which she excels (more on this in upcoming Girls Jumps story), culminating in a 49-point performance in six events at her AAA state meet.  She’s also US#7 in the 300 (39.46) and has run 7.17 for 55.
  • Emma Gallagher – It’s hard to believe that this Garden City (N.Y.) star is still just a sophomore, but she still has two years to improve on her great performances.  The peak this winter has probably been the US#1 1:30.35 600 she ran to win Armory Collegiates, #9 all-time and the second best soph ever.  She’s also run US#5 55.31 for 400 and 40.07 for 300.
  • Precious Holmes – Across the country from her home stomping grounds at Hillhouse (New Haven, Conn.), Holmes ran the year’s fastest 400 at the Brooks PR Invite, clocking 54.37 to hold off Shamier Little.  She is also US#3 at 300 with a 38.22 (behind Baird and Stevens at Armory Collegiate) and US#11 1:34.07 for 600. 
  • Olivia Baker – This versatile junior from the powerhouse Columbia (Maplewood, N.J.) program shone bright with a then-US#1 55.02 400 to win the New Balance Games, but has run even better since with a blazing 54.72 on a 200m flat track to win her state Meet of Champs.  What can she do for 400 at the Armory now?  She has also run a 25.05 200, US#9 1:33.56 600, and 2:13.56 800.


Looking ahead to NBNI
Although lacking Baird, the NBNI 400 is going to be a super deep race, full of talent, including the aforementioned Holmes, Baker and Little.  Also, the US#2-3-4 performers in the 500 are entered: Virginians MacKenzie Kerr and Kendra Wiles, and Tiana Patillo from North Carolina.  Kerr edged the US#1 Majors in their AAA state meet with a US#2 1:13.50 at that distance.  Baker was second last year and Holmes was the leading qualifier, but missed the final due to injury.

In the 200, Baird will be one of the favorites, even if it isn’t her best distance, as will Stevens (second last year).  But Ariana Washington from Long Beach Poly – probably best known for epic relay legs – has the best overall (outdoor) PR in the field at 23.40.  Kendall Baisden – the Michigan star who won the 400 in 2010 and 2011 – is also dropping down and has run a US#1 24.06 (oversized) this year.  Then there’s Florida’s Kali Davis-White (see more below) and several others making the event very competitive.



Short Sprints (55, 60)

Davis-White now tops

Most of the winter, Valor Christian (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) senior MaryBeth Sant has been near or at the top of the 60 dash list, highlighted by a US#1 7.30 at the Tony Wells meet (#13 all-time) and a Simplot win.  But she was off form at the Brooks PR Invite, missing the final.  That opened the door for Boyd Anderson (Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.) senior Kali-Davis White, who triumphed in the final with a US#2 7.31.

It was the second straight victory in this Seattle meet by a Boyd Anderson athlete as now-graduated Shayla Sanders rocketed to the victory in 7.21 (#2 all-time).  Sanders and Davis-White were an amazing sprint duo last year, but Sanders was usually ahead and in the spotlight.  Now it’s Davis-White’s turn and she’s gotten off to a great start in 2013.

Also making waves

  • Aaliyah Brown – Probably no short sprinter in the country has that super-experienced veteran vibe going better than this Lincoln-Way East (Frankfort, Ill.) senior.  It seems like she’s been at the elite level forever.  She and Jada Martin from Tennessee have led the 55 dash all winter since their 6.94s back in mid-December.  At Brooks, Brown was second behind Davis-White with a PR US#3 7.34.
  • Hannah Cunliffe – This sprint prodigy from Washington, who runs unattached, is now a junior and has quietly been getting better than ever this winter.  At Brooks, she knocked down her two-year-old 7.47 PR down to US#4 7.38, running that both in the prelim and the final (third).
  • Asonya Anderson/Carolyn Brown – Some of the best 55 dash battles in the country this winter have been going on at the AAA level in Virginia, where the Heritage (Newport News) junior Anderson and the Phoebus (Hampton, Va.) soph Brown have been dueling.  Both have been in the 6.90s this winter, with Brown winning their Eastern Regional matchup and Anderson taking it at state.


Peek ahead to NBNI
If Brown wants to avenge her Brooks loss, or Sant wants another chance to back up her US#1 7.30, they’ll both have their shot in New York.  Those two and Davis-White are all entered, as are Martin, Colorado talents Zainab Sanni and Chyna Ries, the Virginia duo of Brown and Anderson, Canadian Clemence Paiement (only returning finalist) and many more.

By Stephen Underwood

As we get current on the new DyeStat.com, we catch up on the 2013 indoor season to date, with New Balance Indoor Nationals looming ahead next weekend. Third in this series is the girls’ sprints and hurdles.

Skylar Ross-Ransom – The Brooks PR 60H might have been as big for this Langham Creek (Houston) senior as it was for Wallace and Hall. Ross-Ransom ran 8.50 at Brooks in 2012 and had a best of 8.67 this winter before last weekend, so her third-place finish in 8.33 opened some eyes. At 100H last spring, she was New Balance Nationals Outdoor champ in 13.59.
Kendell Williams –The hurdles is just part of the big picture for this Kell (Marietta, Ga.) senior. Williams is now the national record-holder in the heptathlon outdoors and the two-time NBNI pentathlon champ indoors, but her extreme individual talents include the hurdles, where she ran an 8.35 at Brooks in taking fourth. She is also US#3 over 55H at 7.93.
Leah Lott-Chantel Ray – These two hurdlers have had a great rivalry in Virginia this year. That culminated at the AAA state meet, where Lott (Landstown, Virginia Beach) edged Ray (Hampton), 7.84 to 7.88 – the US#1-2 times for the year. Outside of en route times at 60H national championship races, they are two of the best 55H marks of the past decade.

Ever since she opened eyes wide last summer with a 51.04 400 at the IAAF World Junior Champs, #5 all-time and the fastest since Sanya Richards’ USR in 2002, Kadecia Baird has been earmarked as the long sprinter to watch during 2013.

Fortunately, the injury healed fairly quickly and Baird was back on the track in early February, where she blitzed a US#1 37.54 300 in the Armory Collegiates, second only to Francena McCorory on the all-time national list.

Then at the NY state meet this past weekend, she won the 55 in 7.08 – just off a recent 7.06 best as she’s been trying the shorter dashes – but then false started in the 300 final. That ruined another great battle with Cardozo rival Deajah Stevens, who also won the Hispanic 400. In fact, Stevens is near the top of the national lists in three events, the 200, 300 and 400. They could race again at NBNI in the 200 and in relays, but neither is entered in the 400.

Also making waves

Felicia Majors – After Baird’s 300, the best long-sprint performance this winter arguably belongs to this South County (Lorton, Va.) senior, who at Virginia Tech blasted a US#1 1:12.57, #7 all-time. Of course, the larger story with Majors is the incredible array of events in which she excels (more on this in upcoming Girls Jumps story), culminating in a 49-point performance in six events at her AAA state meet. She’s also US#7 in the 300 (39.46) and has run 7.17 for 55.
Emma Gallagher – It’s hard to believe that this Garden City (N.Y.) star is still just a sophomore, but she still has two years to improve on her great performances. The peak this winter has probably been the US#1 1:30.35 600 she ran to win Armory Collegiates, #9 all-time and the second best soph ever. She’s also run US#5 55.31 for 400 and 40.07 for 300.
Precious Holmes – Across the country from her home stomping grounds at Hillhouse (New Haven, Conn.), Holmes ran the year’s fastest 400 at the Brooks PR Invite, clocking 54.37 to hold off Shamier Little. She is also US#3 at 300 with a 38.22 (behind Baird and Stevens at Armory Collegiate) and US#11 1:34.07 for 600.
Olivia Baker – This versatile junior from the powerhouse Columbia (Maplewood, N.J.) program shone bright with a then-US#1 55.02 400 to win the New Balance Games, but has run even better since with a blazing 54.72 on a 200m flat track to win her state Meet of Champs. What can she do for 400 at the Armory now? She has also run a 25.05 200, US#9 1:33.56 600, and 2:13.56 800.


Looking ahead to NBNI
Although lacking Baird, the NBNI 400 is going to be a super deep race, full of talent, including the aforementioned Holmes, Baker and Little. Also, the US#2-3-4 performers in the 500 are entered: Virginians MacKenzie Kerr and Kendra Wiles, and Tiana Patillo from North Carolina. Kerr edged the US#1 Majors in their AAA state meet with a US#2 1:13.50 at that distance. Baker was second last year and Holmes was the leading qualifier, but missed the final due to injury.

In the 200, Baird will be one of the favorites, even if it isn’t her best distance, as will Stevens (second last year). But Ariana Washington from Long Beach Poly – probably best known for epic relay legs – has the best overall (outdoor) PR in the field at 23.40. Kendall Baisden – the Michigan star who won the 400 in 2010 and 2011 – is also dropping down and has run a US#1 24.06 (oversized) this year. Then there’s Florida’s Kali Davis-White (see more below) and several others making the event very competitive.



Short Sprints (55, 60)

Davis-White now tops

Most of the winter, Valor Christian (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) senior MaryBeth Sant has been near or at the top of the 60 dash list, highlighted by a US#1 7.30 at the Tony Wells meet (#13 all-time) and a Simplot win. But she was off form at the Brooks PR Invite, missing the final. That opened the door for Boyd Anderson (Lauderdale Lakes, Fla.) senior Kali-Davis White, who triumphed in the final with a US#2 7.31.

It was the second straight victory in this Seattle meet by a Boyd Anderson athlete as now-graduated Shayla Sanders rocketed to the victory in 7.21 (#2 all-time). Sanders and Davis-White were an amazing sprint duo last year, but Sanders was usually ahead and in the spotlight. Now it’s Davis-White’s turn and she’s gotten off to a great start in 2013.

Also making waves

Aaliyah Brown – Probably no short sprinter in the country has that super-experienced veteran vibe going better than this Lincoln-Way East (Frankfort, Ill.) senior. It seems like she’s been at the elite level forever. She and Jada Martin from Tennessee have led the 55 dash all winter since their 6.94s back in mid-December. At Brooks, Brown was second behind Davis-White with a PR US#3 7.34.
Hannah Cunliffe – This sprint prodigy from Washington, who runs unattached, is now a junior and has quietly been getting better than ever this winter. At Brooks, she knocked down her two-year-old 7.47 PR down to US#4 7.38, running that both in the prelim and the final (third).
Asonya Anderson/Carolyn Brown – Some of the best 55 dash battles in the country this winter have been going on at the AAA level in Virginia, where the Heritage (Newport News) junior Anderson and the Phoebus (Hampton, Va.) soph Brown have been dueling. Both have been in the 6.90s this winter, with Brown winning their Eastern Regional matchup and Anderson taking it at state.


Peek ahead to NBNI
If Brown wants to avenge her Brooks loss, or Sant wants another chance to back up her US#1 7.30, they’ll both have their shot in New York. Those two and Davis-White are all entered, as are Martin, Colorado talents Zainab Sanni and Chyna Ries, the Virginia duo of Brown and Anderson, Canadian Clemence Paiement (only returning finalist) and many more.

I think Kadecia is probably one of the more talented runners to come along in a while for the Long Sprints. I know she will have her hands full with Kendall Baisden and Deajah Stevens in the 200m. They are not listed in the 400m where Precious Holmes is leading the nation (Brooks) and will probably do battle with Olivia Baker and Chimere Ezumah.


Yep, that's pretty much what I said. In the 400, Shamier Little from Illinois, plus 500 standouts Virginians MacKenzie Kerr and Kendra Wiles, and Tiana Patillo from North Carolina should all be tough, too. Also in the 200, look out for Kali Davis-White, among others.

No, if you read just a little further, you see Deajah Stevens, Felecia Majors, Precious Holmes, Emma Gallagher and others are mentioned. Each article in this series starts with a focus on one of the top athletes, then notes others as well.
