USA Track to honor local stars Kelly, Foster

Two Pinellas County athletes will be honored today for their 1994 accomplishments by the national track and field governing organization.

Sabrina Kelly, formerly a star at St. Petersburg High and now a sophomore at San Jacinto Junior College in Texas is the world junior 100-meter champion. Char Foster, a ninth-grader at Clearwater Central Catholic, set a world youth 400-meter dash record and four national youth records at the Junior Olympic Championships.

The pair will be honored with assemblies at St. Petersburg and CCC. The tributes are of part of USA Track and Field's "Hometown Heroes" campaign to recognize American performances in this year's World Junior Championships in Lisbon, Portugal.

USA Track and Field also is co-sponsoring a free clinic from 1-3 p.m. Saturday at Clearwater High School.

Former Olympic sprinter Rey Robinson is among several veteran athletes and instructors, who will discuss all events. Call 462-7531 for more information.
