          The mile was a slow first half with the field spread across 4 lanes. At the bell it was faster and Fernandez made a bid but there were so many that he got swallowed and fenced in. Manzano was not in the hunt for the win.

          The Wariner eased up at the end and looked like he split just under 45. Williamson handed to him, I think, and looked a bit out of shape but still made up 4m, faded a bit then handed off in first.

                Crowd was definitely down this year...probably 15-16K. I guess the lack of high schools definitely hurt. Also, the APD crack down last year may have kept some of the crowd away.

                  No mention of the Texas A&M mens 4x4 3.00.45? Can't be too far down the all-time collegiate list.

                    It's in the A&M depth thread.

                      I'm sure the current gas prices didn't help either.

                        Yep. I have been attending Texas Relays since 1951(?) and it was the the smallest Texas Relays crowd in my memory.. conversational speculation attributed decline to both absence of many HS and the general economy causing many families to forego a traditional 800-1000-mile round trip, $150-$200 gas, $100-200 lodging.
                        Made me nostalgic for the days when State HS meet in Memorial Stadium drew 40-50,000.

                          It hit football hard here in Ohio, where the state tournament games lost 83,000 spectators, and $500,000, from last year.

                          I suspect the state basketball tournament numbers will be even uglier.

                            The out-of-state high schoolers, particularly those from Louisiana, helped compensate some for the Texas high schoolers missing because of the upcoming district meets. Kaitlin Flattmann (Benton High School, Benton, Louisiana), who easily won the girls' 3200 and 1600 (and had really cool sunglasses), was one of the stars. Morgann Leleux (Catholic High School, New Iberia, Lousiana), who won the girls' pole vault, was another. Bradley Sylve (South Plaquemines High School, Port Sulphur, Louisiana) won the boys' 100. Oklahoma was represented by Memorial High School (Edmond). The Long Beach schools weren't here this year, but California was represented by Louisville High School (Woodland Hills).

                              Recently watched a video of her running mile (or 1600?) (@Texas Relays?) in 2008. I think she ran 4:44.xx. A powerful runner with near perfect form. In the lead from the get-go. So is there a story here? ...

                                My understanding is she's hurt(again).
