First day of Junior Olympics


WALNUT, Calif.

 

The USATF National Junior Olympic Track & Field Championships is the largest and most visible youth athlete developmental program in the world. The Junior Olympics feature the following age divisions: Bantam (10 and under), Midget (11-12), Youth (13-14), Intermediate (15-16) and Young Men/Women (17-18). Entry for this championship is based on athlete performances at preliminary, Association, and Regional levels of the 2007 USATF Junior Olympic Program.

Sarah Higgens of Greenwood, Ind., moved up from a silver medal effort in '06 to win the young women's 2000 steeplechase in 7:13.72, with fellow Hoosier Brooke Bierhaus of Bloomington's Indiana TC clocking 7:34.12 to take the intermediate girls' event.

Youth girls' gold in the 3000 walk went to Taryn Wrotny of Monmouth Junction, N.J., who won in 17:30.63. Caitlin Palacio of the Umoja TC from San Jose, Calif., was the podium-topper in the bantam girls' 1500 walk at 8:41.98, and William Katzman of the Albuquerque TC took gold in the bantam boys' race at 10:02.91. Nathaniel Roberts of Salem, Ore., TC added the midget boys' 1500 title to the bantam boys' gold he won in '06, covering the distance in 7:24.37.

Multi-event golds went to Cadija Caldwell-Harris of Chandler, Ariz., in the youth girls' pentathlon

Last year's young women's heptathlon champion, Victoria Dunlap of the Continental T-Belles in Nashville, Tenn., leads after the first day's events with 3,103 points. In the intermediate girls' heptathlon, the 2006 youth girls' pentathlon gold medalist, Shanay Briscoe of the Northwest Flyers in Cypress, Texas, had 3.020 points to lead after day one.
