    Curtis Beach (NM) scored 7909 at Arcadia with the HS implements, blasting Theriault's 7417!

    That certainly qualifies as smashing a record. Nice young man on his way to Duke, IIRC.

      ... nothing really ever changes my friend, new lines for old, new lines for old.

          Will be interesting to see how he develops. With HS implements his strength appears to be running (those are pretty nice 4 and 15 times). Jumps are good but throws are pretty weak even with HS implements. Any idea if he plans on sticking with the Deca in college?

            Since implement conversions are so dodgy, let's look at Beach vs. Craig Brigham in the events that are the same

            10.9 (830)
            6.73/22-1 (750)
            1.93/6-4 (740)
            52.3 (706)
            4.43/14-6½ (740)
            4:53.0 (601)

            4367, vs. 5055 for Beach, suggesting that this is indeed quite the talent, but it's also instructive to look at the throws, where Brigham hit these:

            14.18/46-6¼ (739)
            44.16/144-10 (750)
            60.22/197-7 (741)

            So Brigham outscores Beach by 297 in the three throws, despite throwing international implements. No idea what Beach is built like, but he clearly needs to do some major bulking up to be a well-rounded decathlete.

              His throws are actually pretty good for a HS decathlete (which is why he won 2 of the throws in this meet and was second in the other) and probably will not be a serious weakness as he gets older, although he will probably always be a runner-jumper-thrower. He shows how many points are available in the 1500m if you can really run it.
              I'd be absolutely amazed if he didn't stick to the decathlon, especially since he doesn't have another gigantic event like, say, Klech, does. He is an excellent 800 meter runner but it's dwarfed by his decathlon.
              Brigham was great but had no speed at all. I'd rather have Beach's tools.

                Quick calculations equate this to around 7600 with international implements. Craig Brigham's HSR(int'l) is 7359.

                I've heard he's about 6-3 and lanky.

                    In greater Jacksonville, FL (pop 1,000,000), he would be

                    100 10.99 - #4
                    LJ 22-9 - #2
                    SP 44-8 - top 10
                    HJ 6-9.5 - #1
                    400 48.16 - #1
                    110H 14.42 - #1
                    DT 133-4 - #4
                    PV 14-5 - #1
                    JT 155-9 - na
                    1500 4:09.48 (4:30 1600) - #6

                    Just to give some perspective . . . :shock:

                      Another funny thing about Curtis and implements: he throws the 2k about as far as the 1.6k 8-)

                          Those arms don't exactly look fresh from the weight room. I think he has a ton of room for improvement in the throws.

                            Man oh man, that "Duke" part takes my breath away. I'm delighted if it is true, but ( Norm Ogilvie forgive me) WHY ?
