Gary Young

April 27, 1993

School: Woodbridge

Sport: Track and field

Position: Sprinter

Class: Junior

Young, the fastest athlete at the Orange County Championships on Saturday, could have gone even faster, Woodbridge Coach George Varvas said. "He did not have his normally explosive start out of the blocks (in the 100 meters)," Varvas said. "I think he has a lot more in him timewise." Young's time in the 100--10.82 seconds--was fast enough to win the race and tie the meet record set by Kevin Alexander in 1992. It is the best mark in the county this season. Young, who was named the male sprinter of the meet, also won the 200 in 21.5 and anchored the Woodbridge 400 relay team to a victory in 42.88. He anchored the 1,600 relay team, which finished eighth in 3:25.5. "I think the 200 may be his best event this year but he runs all three so well it's hard to pick," Varvas said.
