Faces In The Crowd

KAYLIN WHITNEY

CLERMONT, FLA. > TRACK AND FIELD

Kaylin, who will be a freshman at East Ridge High, won gold in the youth division 100 and 200 meters at the USATF Junior Olympics in Baltimore. Her finishes of 11.59 and 23.41 seconds, respectively, broke national 14--15-year-old age-group records held by Olympic 400-meter gold medalist Sanya Richards-Ross. Kaylin tied the season's ninth-best high school time in the 100 and the second-best in the 200.

ANDY HYEON BO SHIM

DULUTH, GA. > GOLF

Andy, a 17-year-old homeschooled student, rebounded from a five-hole deficit—the largest comeback in championship-match history at the 36-hole U.S. Junior Amateur—to defeat defending champion Jim Liu (Smithtown, N.Y.), 4 and 3. A two-time Georgia PGA junior champion, Shim qualified for the tournament with a three-under 141 fourth-place finish at the Georgia qualifier in Athens.

BAILEY DICKINSON

JOHNS CREEK, GA. > CLIMBING

Bailey, who will be a junior at Chattahoochee High, won the 16--17-year-old division title at youth nationals in Atlanta in the 10-meter speed climb. With her time of 6.51 seconds, she not only set a women's national record (all ages) but also became the first American female to make the climb in less than seven seconds. Bailey's win earned her a spot in the youth world championships this month in Singapore.
