    Here are the places after Sellers (the Flash Results site seems to be unavailable).

    2 - Drouin
    3 - Tie among Harris, Barbiasz, Wright, and Fritz.
    7 - Wijesekara
    8 - Arrivey (at 2.09)
    9 - Tie among Frick, Silcock, and Thomas
    12 - Gill

    All others no-heighted.

    Do we have full results? (I know the server seems to be down at the moment). All I know is Fritz finished T3.

    Actually, only 7 cleared 2.14 (7- 1/4). But that height was good enough for second place. Reminds me of 1975, when Warren Shanklin won the NCAA outdoors at 2.16 at altitude (Provo).

    14 guys clear at 2.14 & bugger all but 1 at 2.19 ?!?!?!

    that is pathetic

    i was looking forward to maybe 1/2 dozen guys still clear at 2.21 & possibly 3 fighting it out at heights higher than 2.29

    Really, it sounds like your average high jump championship.

    Scott has cleared 2.33m before so the potential is definitely there, it was just a matter of getting some run up things ironed out. He'll probably have a really good outdoor season to boot.

    That sounds like one super-quick competition!

    At least he is rounding into form. I'm happy for the guy.

    Sellars misses all three attempts at 7-6 1/2.

    Bar now at 2.22 (7-3 1/4). Sellars is the only one left. He clears on his first attempt.

    Next listed height 2.25 (7-4 1/2), but he's asked that the bar be raised to 2.30 (7-6 1/2).

    CORRECTION: When they raised the bar, at that point, I presumed it was to the next listed height of 2.22, and in fact I'm pretty sure it was actually posted that way on the scoreboard, at least at first.

    In fact, it appears that he passed. 2.22 and jumped at (and cleared) 2.25. Sorry for the confusion.

    Wijesekara clears on his third. Thomas, Frick, Gill, Arrivey, and Silcock eliminated.

    Grinnell had been triple jumping, passed the opening height took his attempts at 2.14 after all other jumping was completed. Missed three times.

    No sign of Hamilton. He may have withdrawn. We'll update this when we figure it out.

    Post-event UPDATE. He missed three times at the opening height. I must have missed his third attempt.

    Next height 2.19 (7-2 1/4).
