44th Annual Volunteer Track Classic - 4/20/2007 to 4/21/2007 Tom Black Track, The University of Tennessee Performance List
Blacksburg, Colonial Forge, and Fork Union will have their teams competing at the Volunteer Track Classic this weekend at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Tennesse. Tonight's boys 3200 meter run will feature Peter Dorrell and Axel Mostrag.
This coming Saturday in Knoxville, the Volunteer Track Classic will host, what many regard, as the greatest high school boys 800 field ever assembled on Tennessee soil.The site will be the University of Tennessee where James Gilreath, of Bartlett Tennessee, will try not only to win but break the Tennessee boys state 800 record.“The goal for this weekend is to go under 1:50.20 and break the state record,” said Gilreath’s coach, Kris Harmon.
Fork Union boys ran a US #3 time of 7:47.78 at the Volunteer Track Classic today as they broke the meet record by 15 seconds. FUMA was the runaway winner as Smiths Station (AL) was a distant second in 8:09.49. Peter Dorrell got even with FL South champ Ryan Hill from North Carolina after finishing second in Friday's 3200 with a victory in the 1600 meter run in 4:17.46. More to come from Knoxville....
Fork Union senior Szymon Rola had a splashing debut in the 2000 meter steeplechase in Friday night's portion of the Volunteer Track Classic at the University of Tennessee. Rola won the race in six seconds with a final time of 6:19.99. Rola's time is only five seconds off the national qualifying time in the event for Nike Outdoor Nationals, but the qualifying time is insignificant to Rola as both Fork Union teammate Axel Mostrag and Rola will be headed back home to Poland at the end of the May and jump into the track championship meet series there. Mostrag competes in the 3200 meter run later this evening with current state leader Peter Dorrell of Blacksburg (9:10 best), while Fork Union will be loading up their outstanding 4x800 meter relay on Saturday in Knoxville. The Fork Union boys without Mostrag or Rola won the DMR in 10:36.09, while the Blacksburg girls (12.33.51) were a close second with less than two tenths of a second separating them from a win in the girls' race.
