    Cool. The site is a kick-ass one, anyway. He is a first-year university athlete, so his 2008 time was from high school. Keep up the good work.

    NB: Thomas' brother, Danny, a grade-11 athlete, won heat-2 in 4.17,67y last night. He'll be a better high school miler than Derek, who was an 800m specialist who has now apparently moved up to the 1.500m in university.

    We don't really have 2008 college results in the database. We didn't have a good results importer then, so only a handful of marks are in there, mostly ones we have retroactively done. I have my hands full and then some trying to keep up with 2009!

    High school results are mostly uploaded by coaches and meet directors using the very wonderful (and free!) meet registration system. Nearly complete in WA and OR, hit and miss in CA.

    Are you talking about something missing from athletic.net?

    I haven't entered results from Stanford yet, and the high school stuff is incomplete...

    Milesplit has addressed that problem. Most state affiliates of Milesplit (flrunners here in Fla) have a database of most of the meets run with FAT. When you run your registrations thru their product (vice Directathletics) the database enters the best mark - no fudging! If you have no mark, you have no mark, and are seeded last (or not allowed in at all). I LOVE it. No more lying!! That's why we run our first meets as totally open, so everyone can get a mark in the database. When it comes time for the post-season, there will be no more jobbing - you MUST have a good mark from the database to get a good lane in the prelims.
    Same thing with athletic.net up here in the Pacific NW.

    Also, now that I have athletic.net running for college, it will be easy for meet directors to use it to verify marks if they want. Especially once we get two year's worth of data in the system, since some meets take marks from the previous year.

    I left when the 1500s were done, and should have left when the 1500w were done.

    Fair enough, but what are you going to do during 10/20 races during that time that have a W. in their title? Dare we ask?
    And are only Caucasians invited to this Meet?

    One problem with the Stanford meet is that, aside from indoor (SC?, 400h?...?), it is essentially the first meet of the year. Thus, there is no performance history without going back to the prior two years, and that results in both people that are not as good as their marks (the vets) and those that are better (especially FR/SO).

    Things have changed quite a bit in the past 10 years. Before, you'd see quality distance races at Alabama Relays, Raleigh Relays, SeaRay (Dogwood) Relays, Penn, Drake, etc, but now, Stanford (along with Mt. SAC, although the depth there has probably dropped off) has become THE place for 5000 and 10,000 qualifying times. So no wonder the fields have ballooned.

    Last year they had 2 nights of distance running. Not sure why they dropped the second night, but I imagine that took quite a toll on the staff and especially the officials.
    Given that it falls on Penn/Drake weekend, guess it won't attract many collegians, but note that Cal's Brutus Hamilton meet has NYRR money this year to help stage a big Q meet for open types. Story was posted a couple of weeks back.
