Our inaugural Athletes of the Week for the week ending January 19th are Sabrina Southerland of Cardozo HS in Queens, New York, and Cameron Burrell, also a senior at Ridge Point HS in Missouri City, Texas.
Southerland was selected for her US#1 performance (2:09.67) in the 800 meters at Yale over the weekend. She also ran the anchor leg on Cardozo's US #1 DMR (11:55.96) Cardozo's unofficial splits were 3:41, 55.0, 2:22 and 4:55)
Burrell ran a blistering US#1 and All-Time #12 60 meters (6.69) at the Carl Lewis High School Invitational in Houston, Texas. He now holds the US#1, #2, #4 and #5 times in the 60 meters.
Congratulations to both. Each of our AOWs throughout the season will receive a commemorative certificate and a pair of New Balance shoes generouly donated to the NSAF by our friends and event title sponsors at New Balance.
