The Jimmy Carnes Indoor Meet is an age group meet. However we wondered how it would play out if it was run as one big meet so we combined the results. Seneca Milledge, only an 8th grader, scored the top time in the 55m dash and second best leap in the long jump regardless of age. In addition he also tallied the 17th fastest time of the day in the 200m dash. Check out how the boys would fare in the 2015 and final installment of Florida's only indoor meet!
Age is just a number and a trio of girls proved that Saturday at the Jimmy Carnes Indoor Meet.
