    Re: Arcadia 2M: greatest depth ever

    Holy @#$%! And I thought that 4:01-4:03-4:11 1600 here in Texas was impressive. That 12th placer would be the year's state leader here.

    Arcadia 2M: greatest depth ever

    Yes, they actually ran (shame-shame-shame!) a 3200, but whatever 8-lap race you want to call it, the Arcadia men's one last weekend was the deepest in prep history, says T&FN High School Editor Jack Shepard.

    First, here's the top end of the results, with times as taken, and as converted to 2M by T&FN formula:

    3200: 1. Solinsky (Stevens Point, Wi) 8:43.24 (HSL) (11, x HS) <worth 8:46.28 for 2M>;
    2. Vaughn (Smoky Hill, Aurora, Co) 8:45.60 <8:48.65>; 3. Moe (Riverside, Auburn, Wa) 8:48.04 <8:51.11>;
    4. Curtis (Xavier, Louisville) 8:48.39 <8:51.46>;
    5. Debole (Mt Tabor) 8:50.16 <8:53.24>;
    6. Hassen (Vanguard, Ocala, Fl) 8:52.75 <8:55.84>;
    7. Ruiz (Monroe, N Hills, Ca) 8:55.80 <8:58.91>;
    8. Trafeh (Duarte, Ca) 8:55.87 <8:58.98>;
    9. Kollar (Strongsville, Oh) 8:56.35 <8:59.47>;
    10. Nelson (Liberty, Redding, Ca) 8:58.89 <9:02.02>;
    11. Alizzi (Syosset, NY) 8:59.63 <9:02.76>;
    12. Dalpiaz (Sayville, NY) 9:01.20 <9:04.34>.

    Looking at preps-only races, that race generated best-ever marks-for-place in places: 3 through 12, 15, and 18.

    And with 11—or 9 in a 2M frame of reference—the race had the most sub-9:00 performers ever: ’81 Cal State and ’02 Arcadia each had 6, in both yard and metric sense. Three other 2M races had 5: ’72 Cal State, ’73 Golden West, ’74 Cal State). In short, wow!
