It is/was about 85 degrees today as well.
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.
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)
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."

Current North Carolina State University freshman Craig Engels, who ran 1:49.89 (800), 4:03.96 (mile), and 8:55.51 (3200) last year as a North Carolina high school senior. He was also the 2012 Penn Relays high school boys mile champion.
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.

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.
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!! ), 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.

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.

Well, two seconds slower than a 7th grader ran last year... but still pretty good (especially with a seed time of 2:13).
