    Incredible performance by Jace Posey of Houston Strake Jesuit in the boys HJ... 7-4.25! (that's 2.24 in real measurin')

    Previous PR was 6-10 as far as I can tell

      Sigh, I don't have any time for this any more. Too busy doing my nails . . .

        Incredible indeed ... Took 2 jumps at 6-4, then cleared 6-6, 6-8, 6-10, 7-0, 7-1, 7-2 and 7-4.25 on first tries. Went out at 7-5.

        Appears he's a highly recruited hoopster and son of former NBA player Jake Posey.

          You should probably rip his technique to shreds, seeing as how you're an expert on every event.

            I once heard that the Texas UIL State Championship meet field events are still measured imperially. Is that true?

            The progression in this HJ would certainly suggest so, as 6-10, 7-0 and 7-2 are not BGB conversion equivalents. He probably asked for 7-4ΒΌ for some sort of record reason.

              Better than JuV's!
              I've only been studying the bio-mechanics for T&F for about 40 years now. I'm very good at the hurdles and jumps. pretty good at track races, good at SP and DT. Passable at JT. No idea about HT, except the obvious.

                  Does it bother you (and gm) that I am a serious student of the sport, took my coaching responsibilities seriously, and have loved the sport as athlete, fan, parent, coach, and official most of my life?

                  I did not say I was an expert (gm) at anything, but I am confident of what I have learned and can pass on.

                    Main difference between YOUR expertise (for technique stuff) and MY expertise (for stat stuff) is---you're agreed with sometimes, while I'm not so much!!
                    LOL

                        Pierre Goree of Duncanville finally gets a legal wind and goes 10.22. He had windy 10.10/10.08 clockings in the last month. Big kid, signed with SMU for football. Oops.

                            This guy is listed as a Safety. Maybe his HS puts him back there as a last line of defense so he can run anyone who escapes down but a guy with this type of pickem ups usually is a cornerback if on defense.
