    Re: Arcadia 2M: greatest depth ever

    3rd-placer in that 2003 Arcadia race, Mr Moe, became an 8'41 steepler. Injuries derailed his consistency at UW.
    5th-placer, Mr Debole, eventually ran a 7'56 3000M.
    6th-placer, Mr Hassen, ran 14'13"67 at Florida.
    7th-placer, Mr Ruiz, immigrated to the USA by sneaking across the Mexican border. He attended school year-round to graduate in 3 years instead of 4; he arrived with zero English skills and graduated with a 3.84 GPA. He ran 30'20"25 for Northridge.
    9th-placer, Mr Kollar, ran 3'46"05 at NC State.
    11th-placer, Mr Allizzi, competed four years for Boston College.
    12th-placer, Mr Dalpiaz, ran a 9'01"75 steeple for Georgetown. Competed 4 years for the Hoyas.

    8 Robert Curtis 27:33.38 (PR/28'06"74)

    7 years later 4 of them were in the Stanford 10K.....

    I would say that is 5 pretty decent set of marks. Note that Nelson finished 32 seconds back but broke his PR from last year when he won by 6 seconds. Both he and Simon Bairu have indicated that they are now off to run a fall marathon (NY, I think).

    I can only speak for the CA guys but Tim Nelson ran 27:31.56 in the same Solinsky race and Mo Trafeh has had some recent success on the roads as well.

    But also the most confusing.
    Confusion is merely reality's way of say, "yes, you really are senile!" :P

    But also the most confusing. I thought for the longest time this thread was about the 2010 version, which ALSO has unprecedented depth.

    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>;
    In the category of "what ever happened to?", here's one of the few success stories.

    As pathetic as it seems, 9:02.77 was also the New Mexico state record breaking Brandon Leslie's by 5 seconds.

    It's Albuqerque High School, not Albuquerque Academy. Completely different schools. One's ghetto, the others fancy and private.

    There were several errors in the results last weekend, including Alberquerque Acadamey's Alex Romero, who was initially listed as a scratch in the invitational 3200. (Meet director) Rich Gonzalez went back and found his time to be 9:02.77, which throws him into 13th place. No idea how that impacts the AT lists per depth, but the marks surely makes the race just that much more impressive.

    In the woulda-coulda category, Vaughn finished his 10 days of antibiotics on the Thursday before the race. The race coulda been different.

    If Arcadia wasn't the greatest 2M ever, then what was?

    An absoultely awesome race. Still not the best 2 mile/3200 ever, but depth beyond belief and its only April.

    Also, check the girls 3200 where Amanda Trotter ran 10:28 and got only 4th, while her sister ran 4:48 to win the mile. Oh, and its only April.
