Notes:  Singleton and Marcus Krah are boys' team's only seniors ... 10.48 victory at
Taco Bell established him nationally, then completed a fine meet with 21.43 200 (3rd) ... 2nd 100, 3rd 200 at 4A state in '15; hoping for double win this time ... is unbeaten in 100 finals vs. South Carolina competition this spring; just one loss in 200.

Notes: The NSAF "discovered" Christensen during his World Youth Trials javelin win last summer and invited him to join Project Jav ... he nearly made WY final with 238-2 heave in prelims (lighter Youth jav), then finished '15 with 2nd's at USATF JOs and JavFest ... launched his '16 campaign with a bang, winning Penn Relays with PR U.S. no. 2 219-2.
