  • Oregon's sub-4:00 quartet

    With Rupp's mark this last weekend now in the books, the Ducks have four active guys on their roster (Wheating, Centrowitz, Acosta) who are members of the sub-4:00 club. I'm trying to remember if that has ever happened before.

    DJ---sub-16:00 at Penn this year!!!!!

    Not sure, but Arkansas might've had such a quarter in the early/mid-90's with the likes of Hood, Bruton, Bunston, Moran, etc. Not sure if all those guys actually overlapped, or were all sub-4 for an actual mile (not 1500m conversion).

      Burleson, Grelle, San Romani and Foreman maybe ?

        Wisconsin has Miller and Bolas, with Gaspar close. These guys were under last year when they also had Bethke and Jager. Since Finnerty (4:01:09 HS mile) is also on the roster but not yet competing (injury) they may get there again very soon. In addition, a couple 800 guys (Ludwig and Beth) just ran 1:47s this last weekend, indicating that they could possibly go sub-4 as well.

          Lannana mentioned at the "Track Tuesday" meeting for the community last week there will be a Duck 4X mile attempt at one of the meets at Hayward field this spring. New collegiate or american record? 8-)

            Yes, but USATF has mandated that only 5000 people will be allowed into the stadium that day so as not to violate the new spectators-can't-have-fun rule :twisted:

                  Michigan had 4 sub-4 guys on the current CR holding relay - Woods had run 3:57 to compliment 3:58 Ellerton, Willis, and Brannen.

                    I think Oregon is the correct answer for first collegiate team with four sub-4s, but not until 1968 with Roscoe Divine, Dave Wilborn, Wade Bell and Norm Trerise[?].

                    Of the earlier Oregon group of runners, I think Grelle didn't run sub-4 until after he graduated, and San Romani, not until 1963. By then, Burleson, at least, was graduated.

                      In 1999, Arkansas had:

                      Seneca Lassiter (3:33.72 / 3:57.22i)
                      Ryan Travis (3:59.51i)
                      Michael Power (3:59.85i)
                      James Karanu (3:41.67)
                      Sharif Karie (3:41.67)
                      Matt Kerr (3:41.76)

                      Add Murray Link at 4:02.49 for good measure.

                      That same year, Stanford had (some redshirted at least outdoors):

                      Jon Riley (3:40.20/3:58.72i)
                      Jake Maas (3:41.99)
                      Michael Stember (3:39.05/3:58.57i)
                      Gabe (3:39.85/4:00.58)

                      In 2000 the Cardinal were even more impressive:

                      Stember (3:35.11/3:59.40i)
                      Gabe (3:35.21/3:59.46i)
                      Riley (3:38.90)
                      Andy Powell (3:40.65)

                        I don't think Trerise ran sub 4 until 1970. What about Arne Kvalheim instead of Trerise in '68?

                          I would guess the Twilight.

                          Wherever, at least they won't have to go to New Zealand for it this time.

                              Although Bowerman did take the boys Down Under, the WR was set in Fresno.
