Gar-Field senior Sheena Johnson and Potomac senior Rico Lloyd continue to excel this indoor track season.

Johnson ran the nation's fastest time this season in the 55 hurdles (7.85 seconds) at the East Coast Invitational at the Arthur Ashe Center in Richmond on Saturday.

"She is off to a good start," Gar-Field Coach Jeff Custer said. "I'd like to see her at least get under 7.80, which would be the fastest time ever run in Virginia."

Johnson was also second in the long jump at 19 feet 0 inches.

Lloyd was second in the 55 (6.49), 300 (34.61) and long jump at 23-3 1/2 at the Microtel High School Invitational at Virginia Tech Saturday.

"The funny thing was, he did not win an event, but he had three great performances," Potomac Coach Bill Stearns said. "He was doing events back-to-back, and the other people weren't."

Lloyd has committed verbally to run track and play football at Indiana University, Stearns said.

Potomac senior Jason Lewis won the mile run in 4 minutes 25.05 seconds at the Blacksburg meet.

In Richmond, Gar-Field senior Kira Sims won the pole vault at 9-6, and teammate Katie Fricke was second at 9-0.

Brooke Point junior Colleen Connell won the 1,600 (5:20.04) and 3,200 (11:41.50). Gar-Field junior Dionne Evans was second in the 1,600 (5:30.1) and third in the 3,200 (12:00.8).

Brooke Point junior Keosha Sanders won the 300 at 42.9, and North Stafford sophomore Victoria Buskirk won the high jump at 5-2.

For the boys, Woodbridge's Robert Bonner won the shot put at 47-2 1/4, and Brooke Point senior Byron Dunham won the 55 at 6.44. The Black-Hawks also won the 4x400 relay at 3:39.38.
