The two All-Americans both were heat winners in the 110 meter hurdles with California state champ Misana Viltz of Millikan High School taking heat 2 with a 13.59 clocking and University of Kentucky freshmen Nick Anderson (competed in Florida for high school) winning heat 3 with a 13.61 performance. Viltz, the US #2 ranked high school hurdler in the country, is in good position to compete for a top 3 medal if he can make it through the next round of the 110 meter hurdles.
Misana Viltz, a senior hurdler at Long Beach Millikan High School in Southern California, improved upon his US #2 13.93 win at the Arcadia Invitational last Saturday by dropping down over two tenths of a second in the invitational division of the high school boys 110 meter hurdles at the Mt.

Millikan HS hurdler, Misana Viltz, won the 55m. Hurdle race at the CA state indoor meet in 7.36 in mid February. He was able to overturn the results of last year's CA state outdoor meet as he defeated dending state 110m. Hurdle champion, Marquis Morris of De La Salle HS who finished in 2nd place (7.45). Misana has stepped out of his father's shadow in the past year. His father Theo was a 1964 and 1965 All-American in the High Hurdles at USC as well as an NFL defensive back. The younger Viltz qualified to the Southern Section Masters meet as a sophomore but just missed qualifying to the state meet by finishing in 7th place. As a junior, Viltz finished in 3rd place at the SS Masters Meet and improved to 2nd place at the state meet.
