New Balance HS Indoor Nationals

Postby aaronk » Wed Mar 06, 2013 3:46 pm

The entry lists are up.
I can see at least 3 girl's HSR's broken:

60H.....Hall or Wallace could get it....and even approach the 8.00 barrier!!
5000....Erin Finn has SAID she wants to get her own HSR!! With her recent 10:08, she's definitely a threat......to her record AND to the 16:00 barrier!!
4X1 mileR....the Grosse Point gals said they want to get this record. But the team is listed as the Grosse Point "CLUB"!! Do they have any NON-HS runners?? Why call it a "club"??

I'll have some comments on the boy's side a bit later.

ADD:
On the girl's side, add Kendell Williams as a threat to the HSR in the Pentathlon!!
Can she reach 4000 points??

On the boy's side:

I note that Edward Cheserek is entered in THREE races...the mile, 2 mile, and the 5K.
Will he really run all 3?
If he does, I can't see any records going.
But if he eliminates one of those races, he COULD get ANY of the other's he runs!!
Including the mile record of Alan Webb!!

Others to watch are Michael Cherry in the 400.
With his recent 33.05 HSR in the 300, he has the wheels to cut the HSR of 45.92 down a bit!!
45.5??

The 2-17 foot PV'ers are in the mix.
Hopefully they'll go at least 17-6!!

Rudy Winkler won't get the WT record, but he could go well over 80 feet!!

Have to imagine that Ben Malone is going to try to go for the high school indoor 800 record.

The top 3-5 girls could get into the top 10 all-time at the Mile RW. Staying legal is the only question. No chance any of them break the record there.

In the boys race, it should be a duel between the Peters brothers, with everyone else far back. they could challenge 6:30 if having a good day.

A guy that I work with has a daughter running in the meet, and he said that it will be streamed live. I can't find the details though. I would guess that it will be through the armorytrack.com website. They have a youtube channel that might be streaming it. If I get more details, I'll put it up.

Sad to find out Erin Finn MIGHT have to scratch from the 5K!!
She's fighting a virus!!

She says....on her blog....she HOPES to be there, but takes her races one at a time...and looks forward to a record-breaking outdoor season!!

BTW, if you haven't read her blogs....Erin is a VERY good writer....and quite funny!! :D
(Check out the graph of how she's spending her sick time!! HILARIOUS!!!)

16:18.02 HSR 5000 for Erin Finn!!

She was on a crazy ass pace through 3000.....running 3:09, then 3:11, then 3:13, for 9:33 at 3K!!

Then she hit 12:49 at 4K after a 3:16....
finally dragging herself across the line after a last K in 3:29!!

Too fast at the start?/
Nah!!
How about she'd been fighting a virus all week prior to the race....
and wasn't even sure she'd run AT ALL tonight!!

WAIT!!
STOP THE PRESSES!!

It's now been revealed that Wesley Frazier BEAT Finn at the line.....by 0.01.

Wesley Frazier is the new HSR holder at 16:18.01
Erin Finn......a SICK Erin Finn.....runs 16:18.02.

Oh Oh Oh OH MY GOD!!!

I still can't get over that girl's 5K finish!
A fading Erin Finn was overtaken right at the tape by Wesley Frazier in one of the more shocking, and one of the closest finishes in a distance race (or ANY race!! Tarmoh/Felix, anyone???) I've ever seen, or heard of.

I feel so very bad for Finn, who pushed her whole sick (sinus infection) body to the MAX.....shooting through 3K in 9:33...a 15:55 pace....and running steady 76-78 second 400's.

Then she started running some 40-41 and slower 200's, reaching 4000 in 12:49.
Not a bad fade....only from 3:13 3rd kilo to a 3:16 in the 4th.
But you could tell she was struggling.
At one point, she tripped, and very briefly stepped over the curb to the infield, but it was an accident, not on purpose.

The announcer kept on yelling Finn's name, and urging the crowd to carry her to a new HSR.
To the announcer....and to me...it wasn't THAT she would break the record, but by how MUCH!!

Then, she hit the tape, apparently having won in a new HSR of 16:18.02.
While everyone was applauding her courageous run, the race results were posted.....
with Finn SECOND....and Wesley Frazier in FIRST.....with a time just 0.01 faster than Finn!!

WOW!!

Frazier will be back tomorrow, entered in a couple of races.
I don't see Finn's name anywhere, so maybe she's dropped out of the meet.

Sabrina Sotherland, who ran a 4:44.9 anchor 1600 in her team's 11:39.10 DMR, will return, according to the entry lists...in 2 races tomorrow.....the mile and the 800.

They're about 3 hours apart!!

Also tomorrow, Dior Hall and Sasha Wallace will run the 60H, Precious Holmes will be in the 400, Taylor and Rhodes, the two 13-10 PV'ers, will vault, the Grosse Point MI team will try to break the 4X1 mile relay record.
Their coach says the girl's PR's add to a 19:26....33 secs faster than the record!!
They could each slow 8 secs...and still break it!!

Finally, the Bronxville girls.....minus Mary Cain, of course.... will run the 4X800 relay!!

I just watched the video of the girls' 5000m. After the finish the officials were looking at each other as if to say "What just happened?" For a while there I think Wesley Frazier was the only one in the building who knew.

No record.
Grosse Point won in 20:02.80, 3rd best ever.
Hannah Meier ran her first 800 in 2:18 on the anchor, but faded to a 2:29 finish.

After 4 events, K Williams has 3395 points.
She needs just 530 points in her 800 to get the HSR.
Does anyone know what time that entails??

Harmon-Thomas jumped well too, ending with 3053 points after 4 events.
Felecia Majors is at 2940 points after the HJ.
The youngest girl, Maya Neal, a soph, is at 2656.
She only got 644 points from the HJ.

A 2:42 would get 539 points.

Girls Heptathlon - some good action, thanks aaronk for the posts...

-T&FN lists HS record at 3846, Shana Woods 2004, for this she would need 452 points = or 2:51.1
- aaronk's mentions 3924 as HS record, if so, that requires 530 points to break record, or 2:43.9
- US Junior record from T&FN site = 4059, so she would need 665 points, or 2:32.2

Her outdoor best from Barcelona last year was 2:26.6, so all the above are well-within range.

The records I used were the ones in Jack Shepard's HS Track 2013.
He lists 3924 with 60H.......3978 with 50H.....and 3694 with 55H.

They ran 60H today, so she SHATTERS the HSR by 144 points!!!

This is Mary Cain territory!! :D

Magdalene Ewen of MN has put 54-1 in the preliminary rounds of the SP.
This is number TWO on the All Time HS Indoor list, behind Michelle Carter's HSR of 54-9 1/2.
(The INDOOR record, I mean!!)
Ewen is now in the final 3 rounds.

BTW, last year outdoors, Ewen (listed as Margaret in HS Track, but the same girl!!) put 48-6....and threw the discus 172-7 for #2 behind Shelbi Vaughn!! She had no indoor marks in 2012.

That's pretty cool, folks!!

These kids getting to meet two of the USA's All Time best!!

BULLETIN!!

Precious Holmes just ran the 400 in 53.91....a 2013 best time!

Correction:
Precious Holmes' time was 53.86 in that 400....not 53.91.

Also: Michael Cherry ran a disappointing (IMO) time of 47.36.
After his 300 HSR, I expected him to take down the HSR in the indoor 400!
He even ran faster last year.....46.88.

Question... Are girls HS 60m hurdles the same specs as girls Junior 60m hurdles, i.e., is Kendell Williams' 4068 indoor pentathlon total also a U.S. Junior record? (w/ previous total of 4059 by Gayle Hunter of PennState in 2005?)

The hurdles are the same.
Kendell did this score with a 19 foot LJ. There is an immediate upside here.

To answer my critics.....

first, Cherry might be just a "k-i-d".....but when he's on the track, he's an athlete......kid, adult, zombie vampire, whatever!!

When someone runs 33.05 for 300, you expect he's capable of more than 47.36!!

And BTW......according to the schedule I'm looking at......there is NOT any 400 scheduled for tomorrow!!
So my assumption was that the 400 Cherry (and many others ran, in several sections) was the FINAL!!

If it was indeed just a heat, a prelim.....then I ask for your forgiveness as to my "criticism"!!
A 47.36 in a HEAT is indeed quite good!!
But WAS it a prelim??

Like I said, the schedule I see does NOT have a 400 scheduled tomorrow (just the 4X400 relays).

Great girls 200m times... all finalists under 24.

Cal Poly's junior A. Washington I believe was the fastest in 23.57 or so in the heats.

For some perspective, A. Felix non-altitude HS record is 23.14 (B. Knight 22.97 HS record was at altitude).

Should be a great final.

I was WRONG!! :oops: :oops:

Cherry's race WAS just the prelims!!
The schedule I saw earlier had just the MORNING events for tomorrow!!
I just now saw the COMPLETE Sunday schedule!!
There IS a 400 FINAL!!

I apologize to one and all!!

(However, I still believe an athlete, once he or she is on the track....loses their designation as a "k-i-d"!! Same goes for Mary Cain et al. If she/he performs sub-par, I'll call them on it....kid or whatever!!)

I disagree, that type of expectation leads to situations like Alan Webb and Ryan Hall, who are both top-five Americans all-time in their respective events being labeled as failures or disappointments.
