In the men's 10K, the times weren't special.....the winner running 29:34.
But what WAS interesting was that the first 5 places were all UT runners, ranging from frosh to seniors!
Fifth place was 30:08.
Sounds like the makings of a decent CC team!! :)

Anyone know what her HS 300h time would technically convert to?
Her PR (42.11 I think) is about high 56 to mid 57 maybe?

She's right at the conversion which is why a 57.34 shouldn't be much of a surprise, but what is a surprise is that she did it so soon after Indoor Nationals.

The 4X400 prelims were interesting!!

Oregon's women did NOT qualify for the final!!
They ran 3:39.17 with a team of Okodogbe, Roesler, Prandini, and Francis, and finished 11th team!!

However, the OR men's team DID qualify....finishing FIRST, time of 3:08.18, with Berry anchoring.

There is an elite men's and women's 4 x 400m which did not have qualifying rounds. It is being run tomorrow.

I thought I read on the Oregon site that they were using the Texas trip to get in some training time as well as compete in the relays. In the woman's race, it appeared each of the competitors ran in the same fashion and that was to run an comfortable 200m and finish the last 100m strong. They didn't look all out. Roesler ran about a 54.

I think this was just a prelim, so time wasn't important.
She ran 57.34 a week or two ago.

ADD: Yes, it was a prelim!!
The final is tomorrow!


Spencer didn't run the final.

So, for example, Beach in this meet had a 100m wind of 2.8, a LJ wind of 3.0 and a 110HH wind of 1.1. Therefore, he met at least the first condition in whether an athlete has reached a certain standard within the rules, since no event was greater than 4.0 mps... so if he does finish over 8000 points, it'll count as a legal B qualifier, right? (even though his average wind speed was over 2.0 mps (2.8+3.0+1.1)/3 = 2.3).


That's my interpretation of the rule.

kingcoe on tracktalk.net posted this link to a 2010 article that indicates the 'no event under 4.0mps' was changed..

That rule may be for the validation of a record whereas the qualification for entry standard is what I posted and they are a bit different....or at least the rule the IAAF has on their website says it's different since that is where I copied it from.

Based on the section I posted earlier in the thread...which addresses the change...it appears for entry standard the 4.0 rule still applies.

That height (5.81m) remained his best. Second-placer Shawn Barber of Canada is also one to watch. He set a big PB of 5.71m, breaking not only the Canadian junior record but also the national senior record. It's also a North American age-18 best.

How strange was that? Agree with Dutra that the women didn't go all out; not with three members of a team that ran 3:24.54 at the NCAAs last year. No point in peaking in March.

Oh, and to answer the original question, I've been there all three days and plan to attend tomorrow. Good training for the NCAAs, USATF and Worlds. Weather has been very windy, but the temperatures have been most tolerable. Had no idea that there are over 6300 competitors in the various events.

This is a HUGE result that probably deserve a thread of its own. Sam Kendricks is 20 years old. His previous PB is 5.50 (6.60 indoor). The result is equal second best (behind Walker’s 5.90) by all Americans since 2010. Only 10 vaulters jumped higher than him since the beginning of this decade, the youngest of them was born in 1989 (three years before Kendricks). Kendricks and Andrew Irwin give the US hope to be competitive again in the PV.

As amazing as Kendrick's pole vault win was, it was only the tip of the iceberg of a great competition: nine athletes vaulted 18-1 or higher tonight in Austin. According to TFRRS, only six vaulters cleared 18-1 in the entire 2012 season.

Perhaps GH or some other historian could tell us what the deepest-ever NCAA vault competition was?

Valarie Allman, Longmont Silver Creek [Colorado] (SR), 184-02 in the discus.

That shows to put her #6 on the all-time U.S. high school list.

Lots of good races and marks to report:

Drouin beats Kynard!
7-6 and 1/2 for Drouin. 7-5 and 1/4 for both M Jackson and Kynard.
3 more at 7-3 or better!
So 6 collegians at 7-3....in March!

TX A&M---1:20.78 in the 4X200R (Bryan, Hardy, Bailey, Webb).
TX A&M---38.64 in the 4X100 (Webb, Bailey, Bryan, Hardy).
Florida 2nd in 38.99.

TX A&M women---42.56.

In the open race, Elite Speed, with Muna Lee anchoring, ran 42.97.
VCB's team DNF'ed.

Stratton Sprint (Spearmon, Mitchell, Connaughton, Patton) ran 38.36 in the 4X100R.

Brianna Rollins ran a slightly wind-aided (2.1) 12.54 in the 100H.
2nd was Vashti Thomas in 12.70.

Cabral ran a wind-aided (2.6) 13.33, followed by S Adams in 13.47.
Eddie Lovett was 8th in 13.84.

Finally, in the HS boys 110H, Tony Brown ran 13.38 with a wind of 0.9!!

Question to those in attendance at the TX Relays:

Is the HS girls PV finished?
The results show Lakan Taylor and Annie Rhodes at 13-8 and 1/2, with Rhodes ahead.
Rhodes made that height on first try, Taylor on 3rd attempt.
Are they still going, or did they decide to stop after that height??

I feel both are capable of getting the HSR this year.
Rhodes has already gone 14-0 this year, and Taylor is just a half-inch back.

That's a 9.93 adjusted. Regardless, it's one of the fastest times ever run this early in the year.

Grandpa Patton is picking up speed whoot whoot. I am a bit dissapointed with Duncan this time last year she was 10.94(3.0). I wonder if she is taking things easier because she is seriously eyeing a spot in Moscow? Lauryn Williams is showing she can't be counted out just yet. That time this early in the season shows she has just as good a shot as anyone(except myabe Jeter) if she stays healthy. Cameron Burrell is well on his way to being elite he may be giving Bolt and Blake problems as soon as 2016.

History. If questions of "authenticity" about Loughborough, Clermont, Eugene and Rieti had an origin it's locus would be Texas.

Kynard bowed out before attempting 2.33. Since Drouin was ahead on misses, I assumed that Kynard would come in after Drouin's three misses, but that didn't happen. Perhaps a mild injury caused Kynard to pack it in early.

Some of us with stop watches were laughing at some of the announced splits. That said, I do believe Wariner's was in the 44's. He ran a great leg.

One mark not mentioned yet is the 17'8.5" PV by HSer Daven Murphree. If I'm not mistaken, that puts him in the top 10 of all time for US HS vaulters. Quite a week for vaulters.

Are you saying Kynard did have a mild injury or is that your conjecture?
