Indoor track meets return to action

Cross country season still has one more day to go, but already there have been a smattering of indoor track and field meets across the country.

Here are a handful of early highlights and their corresponding meet results pages in TFX and a link to a big meet Saturday at New York's Armory:

In Virginia, Shakeela Saunders, a senior from Nansemond River in Suffolk, Va. popped a 20-0.5 long jump at the first Southeastern District Meet. Also, Kiara Howell of Grassfield in Chesapeake, Va., another senior, threw 46-7 in the shot put.

At the Peninsula Ice Breaker, also held in Virginia, senior Willie Davis from Bethel of Hampton, Va., doubled in the jumps, going 6-6 in the high jump and 44-7 in the triple jump.

Senior Kari Heck from Washington High School in Sioux Falls, S.D., won a college meet in the long jump (19-0) at Mankato State University.

The 100-meet season at the New York Armory starts Saturday with the 61st running of the Catholic High School Athletic Association Relay Carnival.
