For undefeated high-school sprint sensation Marvin Bracy, it's either go with the pros or no go for Saturday's Golden South Classic at the First Academy.

Bracy and his trainer, Ricky Argro, said Tuesday night they will make a Friday or race-day decision on whether the Boone senior will compete in Orlando's 36th annual postseason track and field showcase. Bracy has been resting and rehabbing since straining his left hamstring while winning his third consecutive state 100-meter championship on May 5.

If he feels able, Bracy said he will run against professionals in the elite 100 races that are new to the Golden South this year. Prelims in those men's and women's races are set for 4:20 p.m. Saturday, with all entrants advancing to finals at 6:15.

It was decided a short while ago that Marvin would not race at Golden South this weekend as they felt his hamstring is only 80% fit.
