Since the United States and the rest of the world are more familiar with the 1500 and 3000 meter distances.....than they are with the 1600/3200.....why not at least do this:
Run the 1600 and 3200 as is, for reasons that you state.
But time the runners at the 1500 meter and 3000 meter posts of those longer races.

Your understanding of a high school meet is fundamentally flawed. The average meet we're in has 50 boy 'milers' who run between a 4:50 and an 8:00 1600. Then 50 girls between 6:00 and 9:00 minutes. What's to be gained by timing their 1500s?

Big invitationals with exceptional runners often have the mile and it is appropriate there. But even there, timing the 1500 is a huge pain that very, very few meet directors would even consider.


It's been a few years since I've attended a high school meet.
The last one was when Becca Friday and a couple of others were in their senior years at Bellingham high schools.....maybe 4 or 5 or more years ago!!

Wow!!
You have boys who run 8 minute miles (1600's), and girls who run 9 minutes??
Times (pun NOT intended, but it works!! :D ) sure have changed since I ran in HS.
That was 1962.
I admit I finished dead LAST in a couple of my mile races!! :oops:
Know what my times were.....in LAST place??
Can't remember exactly, but they were UNDER 5:30!!

I'm glad these boys and girls get to participate in HS track meets.
But wouldn't it be better if you held all-comers meets where these slower guys and gals could get to race against people in their own speed bracket?

that was an impressive '3200' and the last lap was quite impressive as well. As far as Utah's sub 9:00 club (and I wouldn't expect anybody would notice this), the guy who was the last 'sub niner' in this race was a Utah kid "Jake Heslington" from Timpanogos (8:59.73) Additionally, the guy who went out in the lead for ~ 3 laps or so, may have drawn some criticism for naivete but he went past 1600 in 4:31/2 and ended up @ 9:04.x, as a 10th grader. So a fairly evenly paced race for him.

Things look good, I think, for distance people moving ahead to next levels. But a reasonable question to ask would be what happened to last years stellar group? Frankly I haven't followed them ...

Certainly, the only reason someone times the 400 in an 800 race, the 800 in a 1500 or 1600 or mile, etc., is to get how fast the pace is. If they get a 'en-route' 1500 are we supposed to translate it into a mile by scaling by 1.08 (no) and 1.07x is also wrong because it is only a measure of how fast the finish was compared to other parts of the race. And, worst of all, it is not the RACE - it does not matter at all what the 1500m time was.


"And, worst of all, it is not the RACE--it does not matter at all what the 1500 time was."

Oh really?
Well, tell that to Alan Webb, who currently holds both indoor and outdoor one mile records for high schoolers!
Because he ALSO holds both indoor and outdoor records for the high school 1500.
Why??
Because the meet directors in VA and OR timed him enroute to the mile finish!!



Same goes for Mary Cain indoors this year!!
She was timed enroute in both of her HSR miles, and thus has both the one mile AND 1500 records!!
(Ditto for her being timed enroute at 3000 on the way to her two mile finish!! Another HSR!!)

While it may not be important to time an 8 or 9 minute miler enroute at 1500, it DOES matter when you're talking of the Webb's and Cain's of this world!!

And like I said, to everybody OUTSIDE the world of American high school track, the 1500 and 3000 make total sense, while the 1600 and 3200 are meaningless!

ADD:
Oh yes, almost forgot!!
This past winter, Edward Cheserek broke Gerry Lindgren's indoor two mile record of 8:40.0 with his 8:39.15.
And because the meet director at the NB meet timed him ENROUTE at 3000 meters, Cheserek got Lindgren's 3000 mark also!!

You think he cares a hoot for the 1500 meter mark compared to the mile time? No, he is not out there collecting en-route times that might be better than some high school runner was timed in. You completely lose focus on what is important in the sport and clutter things up with trivia - statistics are important, but they are important because they tell us something. That Webb ran a 1500m time that is mediocre compared to his mile time in that race when considered as a 1500m is trivia, not something that has any informational content on his capabilities and accomplishments.

On the contrary I would suggest that for an international audience the 1500m is more widely raced and therefore more relevant than the 1609.3m event. Sure the 4 minute mile still has that historically based prestige but is not as widely practised and therefore doesn't quite have that same relevance, nor depth of performance.

The relative import of a 1500 and a mile is unimportant in this context. A 1500 split that is intrinsically several seconds slower than a comparable mile is really of little interest. If Someone runs a 3:50 mile, about the same quality as a 3:30 150, are we to be really interested in the 1500 time of 3:34 done en route? Not in my opinion - a 3:30 is much different than a 3:34, and hyping the latter because it happens to be the 'best' within a subset but by much less than the mile is best of an at-least-comparable subset it to lose track of what is really of interest, especially in junior athletes, where what we are looking at is the likelihood of them doing great things as 'seniors', and the slower 1500m mark not only provides none of that information, it is outright misleading.

1. I believe the 1600 and 3200 are TOTALLY USELESS in a world in which the 1 and 2 mile still exist!! (Ask people like Rupp, Farah, Cain, and Lagat whether THEY care about the 1 and 2 mile!!)

2. T&FN's conversion factors (between 1600/mile and 3200/2 mile) are false and misleading! While scientifically formulated, they are just predictions, and nothing more. Runners who END their 3200 meter races AT 3200 meters do NOT run 2 miles!! There is NO WAY to get a 100% CERTAIN prediction of what would happen in the next 18 meters!! (Ask Gail Devers about what happened to HER during the final TEN meters or so of HER Barcelona OG 100H final!!)

3. The current girl's HS list can be used as a great example! The listing for what are MOSTLY 3200 meter times is given the title "two miles"!! In place of ACTUAL 2 mile times, with the exception of the FEW which ARE actual 2 mile times, the times listed are only PREDICTIONS of what the runner "ran" over that final 18 meters!! Wesley Frazier ran a 3200 recently in 9:57.70. It's on the HS TWO MILE list as 10:01.17. DID Frazier run two miles in 10:01.17?? NO!!! She not only wasn't TIMED at two miles, she didn't even RUN two miles!!!

4. The 1500 enroute times (and 3000 enroute times in a 3200/2 mile) provide the athlete and the general public with a REAL indication of what the runner actually RAN than does a PROJECTED time GIVEN to them....without actually having RUN the complete distance (of 1 and 2 miles).

5. While one's enroute times (at 1500 and 3000) are likely slower than what they COULD do at those shorter distances, they are still what they HAVE run...in actual fact!! (Again, ask Webb or Cain if they care if they got one record (for their mile's) or TWO (for the mile AND 1500). Or ask Ryun or Lindgren, or Jennings, if they care that their 1500 marks were broken!!)

6. If Cain had NOT been timed at the 1500 and 3000 points in her races, we would see the following: HSR in the 1500/mile......4:18.9 and 4:28.25. Or HSR in the 3K/2 mile (indoors).....9:17.4 and 9:38.68. So it takes just 9.35 secs to run that final 109 meters? Or just 21.28 to run 218 meters?? Wow!! :roll:

I blundered onto a site listing Oklahoma HS State Champions by school class. The state went metric (in running distances) circa 1982 but still retains yard records. Curiously, both the mile and two mile records are faster than the 1600 and 3200 records.
I wonder if that is true in other states.

They are projections, not predictions. As projections they are very accurate and since there is measurement error on the officially-timed distance, those might also be characterized as projections as well. Again, what matters is the 'information content' of the mark, and the converted 1600/mile conversion provides that information.

From what I can tell, he hasn't ran outdoors yet for Oscar Smith HS, I couldn't even find him on a relay leg. Still plenty time left in the season though, just curious to see what he can do in the open 200/400 outdoors after his great 300 indoor performance.


According to the school's athletic calendar, the school's track team had one early season meet which appeared to be low key and another meet cancelled. So he may not have competed at any great level outdoors yet.


He's had a slight hamstring strain recently too. If all goes well he's planning to open up with an 800m in his school's meet this Wednesday and see how the leg feels.

Good call Blues... looks like he opened his outdoor season with an 800 win in 1:59 today (4/10) and ran the 4x4... good to see him back in action.

Are they running districts yet in FL, or was this at an invitational/other? Good to see the preps are inching closer to 45.xx sec territory.

We're about midway through districts with Dr. Phillips district meet next Friday.

This was at the Brian Jaeger Invite. Andres Arroyo is running the 3200m soon.

Did L. Whitfield run the 100m there? - I noticed he was on the entry list.

Also... from TX Dist 17-4A a few days ago, a decent double for A. Davis 10.44/21.09 (NWI)

Jones' district meet was today so they didn't run at the Jaeger meet. Whitfield finished second in both the 100 and 200 to his teammate in rather pedestrian times for him. I don't know whether he was letting his teammate have a couple of district titles or he's nursing an injury.

This one-day triple becomes even more impressive when you note his previous bests:

According to Athletic.net, his bests WERE....

10.95 (2012)
21.28 (Mar 16, 2013)
47.44 (2011)

Not to mention that he's also run his first 800 this year....a 2:10.19 on March 6!!

Thanks Dutra5 and Marlow for the posts...Make that very impressive.. so after 4 prior races in the day, including a 46.46 400, he looked pretty strong coming home in the 200 final. Looked like there was little wind out there as well.

The Jaeger meet running events started at noon. There were no preliminaries and was over by about 3pm.

Marlow seems confused as to which meet was being discussed.

West Coast Relays: Blake Haney, 3rd at Arcadia over 3.200m (8.48,58), wins the 1.600m in a CA state-leading 4.10,39, pulling Jose Herrera (4.18,75y at Stanford) down to a 4.12,03 PB. Haney ran his second 1.56 on the year on Thursday (1.56,39 PB) as part of a 4.21,01/1.56,39/9.23,87 triple.

Scotty Newtown (Bakersfield) won the LJ/TJ in 24-02,25 (+0,2)/49-0,5w (+3,1). Newton's LJ victory marked the first time he'd surpassed the 24-foot mark (jumped 23-11/nwi on Thursday)

According to this article,

http://fl.milesplit.com/articles/103889 ... -2117-4646

Andres Arroyo, with a dominating 3200 yesterday, is now just the 5th prep to run sub-1:50 and sub-9:00 (3200). The other four stated here include some prominent names: Jim Spivey, Alan Webb, Edward Cheserek, and someone I probably should recognize but who is simply referred to in the article as "Engels."

It was slow, but there was an interesting match-up at NY's Icahn Stadium yesterday.

Kadecia Baird beat Sabrina Southerland in the girl's 400, 55.12 to 57.93.

The weather was described as "blustery".

Baird also ran a 24.17 200 (NWI).
And Southerland ran the 1st leg on her team's 4X800 relay. They ran 9:30, so I'm assuming her leg wasn't super fast.

I was curious to see how Reggie Glover stacked up against other recent preps who ran the open 1/2/4 over the course of their HS careers. Using DyeStat's "legal" time database, IAAF scoring formulas, and some Excel work, here's a top-20 list from 1999-current. The cutoff criteria used the top 750 performers for the 100 (=10.71), top 750 for the 200 (=21.54) and top 1,000 for the 400 (=48.10). It may not be perfect/comprehensive as I'm sure I missed some (e.g. I couldn't find a 100m time for B. Nellum who went went 20.43/45.38 in 2007), but R. Glover scoring over 2900 points is something preps don't do very often, and he did his in one afternoon.

Name (Class) (School) 100m 200m 400m (IAAF POINTS)
Willie, Kelly (2002) (Sterling, TX) 10.24 20.49 45.52 (3109)
Carter, Xavier (2004) (Palm Bay, FL) 10.38 20.69 45.44 (3059)

Katie Michta has a 25:47 5000m time, which is only 17 seconds off the IAAF standard for World Youth. Still no word from USATF whether they'll impose a tougher standard on her.

What's the deadline for getting a Q?
Is there another race she could enter before that to try for it?

BTW, she's Maria's younger sister, right?
How old is she?

A walking dynasty in the making!! :D

gktrack: Just checked the LA Unified School District track and field record page. Lists Quincy Watts as having the following best times: 100 = 10.30A; 200 = 20.50A; 400 = 46.67

Yes, as noted, I only had data going back to 1999. Q. Watts total would be 3036, again showing the quality of Reggie Glover's one-day total of 2904 points.
I wouldn't be surprised to see Michael Cherry with a good 100/200/400 this year after his first outdoor 400 over the weekend with a 47.23, winning by 2 seconds.

Attn: Stat Freaks

This might better go in the Historical forum, but I have a question about Erica Whipple.

I'm redoing some of my T&F Record Book pages (They get rather messy sometimes!! :oops: ), and came across a possible error.

On my Top 24 All Time HS girls 100 list, I had Erica Whipple having run an 11:32 100 in 2000, making her 20th on my list.
But while redoing the page, I was double-checking it with the list in the 2013 HS Track book, and Ms Whipple's name is nowhere to be found!!
Not on the all time 100 list, even the wind-aided portion, nor on the 200 list.
The only list she's on is the indoor all time 200.

Then I checked this site's archived list for 2000.
Whipple's 11.32 IS listed there!!

What gives??
Was this an oversight on Jack Shepard's part...or Mike Kennedy's??
Or has that mark been taken from the list for some reason unknown to me?
Thanks for your help.

She ran 11,37 ahead of Sanya Richards (11,61) at the Florida Relays in 2000.

If 11.37 was Whipple's best in 2000, then the T&FN archive list is wrong....because it has her at 11.32.
Also, the HS Track book ends their A-T list at 11.36.....so if she ran "only" 11.37, then that would explain why she isn't on that list.

So....someone has it wrong!
Meanwhile, I'm keeping her 11.32 on my list.

The 11.37 is a known (and notable) mark; it does not imply that is her PR etc. but that she does belong on the list. [Also note that SR eventually ran much faster.]

a decade or so after the fact it was discovered that the 11.32 had been misreported in the media and was actually an 11.47.

100 leader Levone Whitfield (10.28) is out for at least the rest of his HS team's season with an ongoing tendinitis problem.
