stunned pre-race favorite Shadrack Kiptoo during the final stretch for the victory. Kiptoo, roughly a sub 4 minute miler from Kenya, had been heralded as the possible high school champ ever since arriving from Kenya over a year ago. Withrow, only with a 4:26 mile best, had fallen off many people's radar heading into this year due to injuries during last year's track season.
Girls: Katelyn Kaltenbach had been in the shadows of her sister Megan for much of her early running career, but she put those issues to rest for good on Saturday as she won the national crown over surprise runner up Marie Lawrence, only a 9th grader from Nevada.

Prep phenom Dathan Ritzenhein put the hurt on some of the US's best professional 5k runners in the Olmpic Development 5k at Penn Relays Friday night. While Ritz didn't get the highschool record of 13:44.0, he still clocked the 2nd fastest US highschool time ever with his13:51.69, bettering the legendeary Pre's 13:52. More impressive than his time was Ritz's placingand the gutsy race he ran. He finished 2nd overall and pushed the race's pace throughout as it turned out to be more tactical than he was hoping for.
