    • Are we seeing more, less or the same numbers in the NCAA? I always wondered why our junior sprinters didn't make more of the move? Constraints and commitments yes but a free/cheaper degree and elite training facilities and training partners.

        My sense is the numbers were probably at an all-time high 18 months ago. COVID has presumably slammed the breaks on quite a few who were planning to head over.

        Are there really that many junior sprinters who could have cut it for a full-ride? I suspect the very best feel they won't benefit enough (Nelson, Browning, Day, Hale to name a few), while the next tier down just simply wouldn't crack the top 20-30 aspirants from their age-group. The former are probably incorrect of course, but finding the right fit would be the challenge.

        • I agree covid would have slowed enrolments. Not even sure if education is an allowable reason to leave the country right now.

          Looking back there haven't been too many pure sprinters who have gone to college.

          19yo (at the time) Maisie Stevens seems to have had (dated) PBs of only 11.78/24.2 when she was accepted so for those who want to apply, the standards aren't that high.

          Of course, not every athlete wants an education either.

            Do we know she's on an athletic scholarship? Could just be a walk on. Indeed someone willing to take that gamble would be accessing an infrastructure they wouldn't get here...

            • Story about Dani Stevens' return from debilitating injury. Good luck to her tonight.

                Here's their recruiting standards - https://calbears.com/documents/2020/..._Standards.pdf Not too onerous for walkons but see note that scholarships can be 1-100%!

                • Maisie is the recipient (in 2021 at least) of the "William Ray and Susan Cleary Garratt Scholarship" for track and field.

                  • Maisie Stevens seems to be their second best sprinter based on their website's helpful list of PBs:

                    Zion Nelson 11.41 23.16
                    Maisie Stevens 11.80 24.15
                    Jackie Patterson 11.84 24.19
                    Ezinne Abba 11.87 24.25

                      Nasty injury for any thrower. Hope it is fully stabilised now.

                      • Summing up the noteworthy results so far from the Queensland Champs:

                        BRISBANE - 11 MARCH
                        400H Symons 51.49
                        DIS Cooper 55.46m

                        DIS Lally GBR 56.93m Gollshewsky 56.14m Su'emai 51.31m
                        U20 DIS Su'emai 49.81m

                        BRISBANE - 12 MARCH

                        BRISBANE - 13 MARCH
                        100 sf1 (0.6) Greig 10.53 Omuvwie 10.68 Dubler 10.84 sf2 (1.6) Moloney 10.49 Payne 10.60 Rizzo 10.71
                        U18 100 h1 (1.6) Wong 10.64
                        U20 100 h1 (2.0) Law 10.55

                        100 h1 (1.3) Lewis 11.60 h2 (0.6) Hotten 11.68
                        U20 100 h1 (1.6) Matzer 11.76
                        U18 (1.3) Durmaz TUR 11.66

                        Good conditions for sprinting up there today, even though many of their best athletes are in Sydney.

                        • Forecast for Sydney.

                          Not bad but excess tailwinds might be an issue given the 100m straight is NNE - SSW

                          Mostly sunny. Slight (20%) chance of a shower. The chance of a thunderstorm in the afternoon and early evening. Northwesterly winds10 to 20 km/h, tending northeasterly 20 to 30 km/h along the coast during the afternoon, shifting into the Western Metropolitan during the evening.

                          SOPAC temperature was a max of 32 at 1pm heading towards 19 overnight and a rainy tomorrow.

                          • And the Qld 100m finals are now decided:

                            100 (0.5) Moloney 10.36 Omuvwie 10.46 Greig 10.48 Payne 10.51
                            U20 100 (2.0) Law 10.53
                            U18 100 (2.1) Wong 10.60

                            100 (2.2) Lewis 11.55 Hotten 11.61
                            U20 100 (1.5) Matzer 11.69

                            PBs today for teenagers Wong, Law & Matzer today with the youngest star, Lewis, just robbed by a breath of fate.

                            20yo Hotten was a promising sub-14 hurdler three years back, but seems to be concentrating on flat races now. Law, who has only been competing for two years, also dabbled in hurdles until this season.

                            • More from Brisbane today:

                              400 Beck 45.72 Geary 46.91 Diffey 47.26

                              400 Beer 52.81 Banner 55.12 Sargent-Jones 55.71
                              TJ Parker 13.27m (1.7) Cuba 13.03m (2.4)
                              SP Su'emai 15.05m
                              SP U20 Su'emai 15.26m

                              18yo Beer's 3rd fastest ever time and the veteran Beck pulled out a PB. No wonder he's looking forward to a race with Solomon.

                                One tenth off his PB and only 2hundredths behind coach Ladbrooke's 400 best.

                                In Sydney, Marschall looked amazing at 60 and 75 then went straight to 90 but looked like he tried to hard on first, bottled second and then came down on the bar on third. At least I think he came down, the broadcast director was giving priority to the 2nd lap of the B race over 5000....
