Marion Jones of Rio Mesa High, the state champion in the girls’ 100 and 200 meters, will not run in The Athletics Congress Junior Track and Field meet, which will start Thursday in Fresno, because of a stress fracture in her left foot.
Rio Mesa co-Coach Brian FitzGerald said that Jones, who recently completed her freshman year, probably sustained the injury four weeks ago in the state meet, in which she ran with a swollen left ankle that was heavily taped.
