Fauquier senior Sarah Bowman continued her dominance from last spring where she ended as a national champion and national leader at 800 meters by popping a national leading time not far off her personal best with a 2:05.41 clocking at the Taco Bell Classic in South Carolina. In a field that included the likes of fellow Virginian Katie Doswell of St. Catherine\'s, Bowman left no doubt that the national title for the 800 meter run still runs through her as she won the 800 with a time two seconds faster than her 2004 win at Taco Bell. Bowman scorched a 61 second first lap to finish up with a 64 second last 400 meters to cross the line first.
Meet directors announced Friday night that Friday's portion of the meet will be run Saturday. The junior varsity 1600 meter runs are at 8 a.m.
