Irondale's Morganne Phillips won a pair of events for the Magic City Runners at last weekend's USA Track and Field Junior Olympic Outdoor Alabama Championship at Mountain Brook High School.

The upcoming freshman at Shades Valley High School captured the intermediate girls 200-meter dash in 25.27 and the 400-meter dash in 56.51. She also finished third in the long jump.

She had a great meet, said Magic City Runners coach Larry Holmes. She came to us when she was about 9 years old and I told her parents then that she had a gift. She's getting stronger each and every meet.
