Oak. Mills' Farmer to undergo MRI

May 02, 2001|By Kevin Van Valkenburg

Oakland Mills' All-America sprinter, Kyle Farmer, will have a magnetic resonance imaging on his hamstring today to determine the severity of an injury he suffered during last weekend's Penn Relays.

"We're praying for the best," said Oakland Mills coach Sam Singleton. "It might be a pull, it might be a tear. We'll wait and see."

Farmer, who is considered one of the top high school sprinters in the country, was injured while running the anchor leg of the 400-meter relay, but still managed to finish second.

Singleton said Farmer could run later in the week if the MRI shows no real damage, but that holding him out of the Howard County Championship next Wednesday is still a possibility.

"It was just one of those things that happens," Singleton said. "I've been there. He just wanted to win and tried to kick into that extra gear. Hopefully, he'll be fine."
