Melissa Sapa
ST. LOUIS

Shameika, 13, and Melissa, 12, each broke two national records at the 1993 AAU Indoor Track & Field Championships in Lawrence, Kans. Shameika broke her own record in the 60-yard dash by running a 7.46 and also established a mark in the 300 (37.94) in the youth (14-and-under) girls' division. Her time in the latter race was 1.2 seconds faster than the previous record. Melissa also competed in the youth girls' division and finished first in the one-and two-mile races with record times of 5:29.92 and 11:48.67, respectively. Her one-mile clocking was more than seven seconds faster than the old mark. In the two-mile race she shaved an astounding 26.7 seconds off the record.

Jeff, a senior wrestler at City High, pinned Rod Ergenbright of Newton High in the 130-pound division at the state final to complete an undefeated four-year varsity career.
