    Besides Phoebe Wright & Semoy Hackett, I don't see no one else coming close to Queen Harrison to winning the Bowermans award. What are your thoughts?

    Harrison - Lucas - Hackett in that order

      Can't overlook Lisa Koll--won indoor 5k, outdoor 5&10, and set CR in the 10k.

        You've ignored two legitimate contenders (both with far better credentials than Lucas or Hackett):

        •Blessing Okagbare—60/LJ winner indoors, 100/LJ winner outdoors (so she beats Harrison 4-3 in NCAA titles).

        •Lisa Koll—5K winner indoors, 5K/10K winner outdoors, so has same NCAA titles as Harrison; but also sets Collegiate Record in 10K, and for many voters records trump everything else.

          You're right! I don't know how I ignored these two contenders. My REVISED Top 3 in the following order:

          Winner: Queen Harrison - I think she will win because she went undefeated both indoors & outdoors, and accomplished something no other female in winning both short & long hurdlers in the history of the NCAA.

          Runner up: Lisa Koll
          Blessing Okagbare

            Okagbare also did something nobody had ever done before: winning the 100 and LJ :mrgreen:

              Lewis won a few LF/100 doubles.....

              I think that Koll and Harrison both came back from disappointing 2009 seasons and showed that they are dominant performers on the NCAA stage. Koll will have the tougher road on the world stage because US sprinters are at the top, in general, while in the distances they are pushing to get back near the top.

              BO's marks are very good -- three tough choices with a great year by Lucas only very good by comparison.

                Lucas was "runner up" last year, but for this year, I don't see her getting an invitation.

                  I'd put Theisen and Hutson both ahead of Lucas as well.

                    I think that Hutson should be getting more publicity than she has been getting. 4 x Champ, not a big-school athlete, nicer than all get out, comes back from broken pole/hand injury, vaulting world-class level already (4.51 and might be going higher soon.
