Marc Sylvester was not 100% at the NCAAs. We haven't had a top 1500m man for a long time. Maybe going back to Tim Pitcher in the early '90s? Middle distance and distance (1500 and up) have fallen off a bit in recent years, perhaps a reflection of Bill Webb's track background. Not saying this is necessarily a bad thing -- just a reflection of Webb's strenghts. Famiglietti was good. George Watts coaches the Vol distance guys. We have a top 800m recruit coming in next year, from Florida. I believe his name is Paul Cross.
The Lady Vols had a pretty good NCAA meet with Dee Dee Trotter leading the way. So far I'm happy with Coach Clark. It's good to get Joetta's brother to town! I'm sure having Jearl in Knoxville doesn't hurt things either. I gradually lost interest in the LVs when Terry Crawford left. It was tough seeing the program slide like it did. Myrtle Chester and that whole fiasco just about put the stake in the program. But I think they're coming back. I hope so!
