Law breaks national record to highlight Day 5 USA Youth Outdoor Championships

6/30/2012
 
ARLINGTON, Texas--  A record breaking performance by Kendrick Law, establishing a new Sub-Bantam boys national record in the 200m highlighted day five of the USA Youth Track & Field Championships at Maverick stadium at The University of Texas-Arlington.

Law (Spar Track Club) battled it out with Kamran McIntosh-Ross (Metro Atlanta Spirit) in the 200m final of the Sub-Bantam boys division. Law edged out McIntosh-Ross and came away with the national record. Both McIntosh Ross (28.96) and Law (28.90) bettered the previous record set in 2011 by Zion Russell.

The 200m was not the first time the pair have faced-off this competition. Both competed in the long jump, where Law finished second and McIntosh-Ross took third. The duo will meet again in tomorrow’s 100m final. McIntosh-Ross goes into the final with the top seed of 14.64, while Law is listed as the second seed in 14.73.

The 3,000m Youth Boys race warmed the track up when Jacob Ogden and Phillip Rocha chased each other for the national record. Rocha (So Cal Roadrunners) led for most of the race with Ogden (South Orange County Wildcats) trailing right behind him. Rocha, who was the anchor leg of the winning 4x800m Relay, could not hold off Ogden in the end. Sprinting down the final straightaway, Ogden leaned at the line to finish in 9:04.41 with Rocha a nose behind in 9:04.45. Both were within half a second of the national record of 9:04.06.

Though Ogden and Rocha are competitors, they both hail from Southern California and reguarly push each other in competition.

“I like racing with [Phillip] because we always push each other,” Ogden said. “We always get a great time when we are with each other.”

“I’m happy for Jacob,” Rocha said. “He helps me push the race. I’m proud of him.”

Rocha and Ogden will meet up again in the Youth Boys 1500m final tomorrow. Rocha has the top seed at 4:20.46 while Ogden has the second fastest seed at 4:21.33.

The Bantam Boys high jump national record holder, Sean Lee, added another national championship title to his resume. Lee (USA High Jump Club) took home first place in the Midget Boys high jump competition, beating out his nearest competitor by 10 inches.
