  • the best HS State Meet weekend ever?

    This weekend, simply because that pig-pestilence scare moved Texas so it and Cali are at the same time!

    (not to mention Indiana, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Ohio, Rhode Island, Vermont & Wisconsin!)

    Now if only Texas would drop all the little 1A, 2A, 3A, 4A, 5A stuff...and run one real meet....

      Ohio will have a very fast state meet as well. The most underrated state when it comes to speed in the discussion

        I agree! Mostly because my nephew has a good shot at winning the Minnesota mile or 2 mile (or whatever their ridiculous metric equivalents are.)

              It's my understanding that Minnesota has officially adopted the 1,589- and 3244-meter runs.

              But on a more serious note: Assuming my laptop doesn't croak on me (it's a possibility), everyone please remember that I plan on providing live Twitter coverage of the Texas HS champs at http://twitter.com/tandfn

                  Don't forget New Jersey, which has its state meet today (or tomorrow in case of rain). New Jersey belongs in the top 5 when discussing track talent among high schools. This year's no different, especially with Nick Vena breaking all sorts of shot put records, Clayton Parros among the top quartermilers in the country, and Robby Andrews setting a national indoor 800 record.

                  Ladies are no slouches, either: Jill Smith was T&FN indoor AOL, Dominique Booker among nation's top sprinters and look out for Ajee Wilson, a freshman who was an age-group sensation for many years as a middle distancer, now capable of going under 2:10 in her first year in high school. Joetta Clark's state record may be in jeopardy some day.

                  Who could overlook a state that produced the one and only Carl Lewis? Other than Texas, Cali and Florida, Jersey takes a backseat to no one.

                      A shame Glenville's 3:14 4x4 was dq'd at District for a lane violation. Boys DI high jump should be epic.

                      Weather looks to be perfect.

                          It gets even better! The Great Southwest Track Meet in Albuquerque. Curtis Beach in the Decathlon starting today. Also in the 4x2 & 4x8 Saturday. Seems like a lot of kids from Texas on the start lists......

                            Nice if the CA announcer would update as the TX meet developed. Could cause some athletes simply chasing times to speed up a bit.

                              One of the first rules of announcing a track meet is that you never do anything that casts your own production in a poor light. Bad idea.
