Living the Dream: Sanders Strikes Gold

Shayla Sanders of Boyd Anderson wins with a personal best 11.34 for the "national championship" of sorts at the Dream 100. Her teammate Kali Davis-White was third in 11.45 and Tristie Johnson was sixth in 11.65.

Unfortunately, Shayla's interview with us was cut short... she started to feel light-headed and dizzy in the middle of it and had to sit down. Great job today!

Lily Williams Makes History: State Record Mile

Chiles senior Lily Williams followed in the footsteps of Shelby Hayes. Two years ago Hayes represented Florida in the first Dream Mile and came home with a state record in the event. In 2012, Williams bested that time by Hayes with a new state record of her own! Lily finished in sixth place in the deepest ever field in the event that saw three go under 4:40. Lily finished in 4:42.79, which topped the former state record by .21. The time converts to a 4:41.15 1600m.

How Sweet it Is: Levonte Gives Florida Second Dream Victory

Levonte Whitfield proved he's got what it takes. He continued his amazing season with a Dream 100 victory of 10.43 in New York City. Previously Levonte said he was going after Junior Nationals next weekend, but in the interview tonight he said he is going to wrap it up this summer and start training for football season. So until next spring, great job Levonte!

Marvin Bracy did not compete and Tyreek Hill, who Whitfield narrowly defeated at Golden South, DQed in the race.
