After her early, early HS success, I'm sure many people never thought she'd continue to be this good. Is there an Oly 10K in her future? She doesn't quite have the kick to get on the team at 5K, but 10K or even Mar might be the ticket!

I don't recall seeing Hasay run for a couple of years.. she seemed taller and leaner today than I remembered her.

The timing problem seems to be related to missing Alexi Pappas in Oregon's scoring. This was apparently due to her affiliation still being listed as Dartmouth (or Princeton), her previous school. If so, that mistake might be hers or might be NCAAs. Since the initial results listed Oregon with a low score similar to its final tally, this must have occurred partly though the process some how.

The confusion was highlighted by there being a verbal 'altercation' between FSU and OU athletes and people jumped to the wrong conclusion (although I heard that someone said a FSU athlete was listed as DQed for a bit, not sure on that one).

I, for one, am much happier for them to be generating results as they go and at the finish that are not yet official. We have sat through some very long periods where they did not list any scores until everything was official. And, in this XC meet, with numerous athletes crossing in a short interval (a casual look yielded five withing 0.6 seconds), there are a lot of close cases. The rules require looking at all cases where times are within 0.10 seconds. Since most of these cases will have nothing to do with the results at the top, why should we wait to find out if Oregon won based on a close contest for 237th place (an actual case), which gets looked at after they investigate 30 or 50 other finishes hitting that criteria?

Can you imagine a football game or other event where they did not provide a running score. Would you not score a track meet because there is a protest in an event that does not affect any scoring or any scoring of the top 20 teams?

OU? Oklahoma did not have a women's team at the meet.

Pappas was apparently listed as non team scoring initially. Ray Treacy's comment that Providence was "We were national champions for 10 minutes" just seemed bizarre if he were near the finish line since anyone watching the race would have to conclude that Oregon won handily.

There were reports of some sort of altercation after the race involving FSU but was this ever confirmed? Karen Harvey once again off the rails a bit with some post race comments....although not quite as weird as last years.

I think, in this case, the O stands for Oregon.. one of the announcers kept referring to the Oregon State bright orange singlets until his broadcast partner finally corrected him. Oklahoma State and Oregon State do both have orange/black as their colors.

That was Bob Kennedy who referred to Oklahoma State a few times as Oregon State.

Apparently at one point they took the top placers and had them spliced in around 24th and with Pappas maybe missed altogether. Delta Timing did the meet and messed up the DIII race also, from what I understand. Again, it was the woman's race and was worse than the DI fiasco.

In the men's race, the top five scorers belonged to OSU (2) and Wisconsin (3), talk about low sticks.
