  • Texas Relays (Friday)

    High School Editor Jack Shepard says the boys fields are "LOADED-LOADED-LOADED"; obviously the change in dating has done wonders for the prep entry lists.

    I figure the ONLY way that Texas will beat Texas a&m in a relay, is to give them a bad lane assignment -- mind you -- A&M has the fastest time and are defending champs in the sprint medley. They were given lame 1. Awesome job Bubba! That is so weak...

        Bracy 10.37 in the 100m heat. First class effort for a HS kid.

          Would've won the Jamaican HS Champs race that was run tonight.

            Actually the winning time was 10.37 in Jamaica so they would at most tie. And also the wind reading was actually legal. Bracy's time was wind aided. The time in Jamaica was ran in -0.5 wind.

              10.37 with wind in the heats, let's see what he has in the final.

                Note the Friday javelin series by Canadian freshman Raymond Dykstra, from Kentucky: 182-04, 189-06, 217-09, 219-10, 240-07, 247-05. He started out trailing Sam Humphreys by 63 feet and ended up trailing him by 14 inches.

                  Bracy ran a windy (2.1) 10.37 today in the prelims. Video isn't the best, but it looks like he eased up quite a bit at the end. That kid is an incredibly advanced starter for an 18 year old.

                  He did ease up, and wind-aided at 2.1 in the semi is pretty good, but with that wind differential it is [2.1 - (-0.5) = 2.6] => 0.13 'different' after adjustment. Of course, the Jamaican guys are peaking while this is Bracy's initial effort outdoors...

                    Oh man. He made that look really, really easy.

                      He was in all All-Star football game and made 3 (THREE!) defenders miss with three steps of acceleration.
                      You can SEE it 'somewhere' under the title "Marvin Bracy pulls one of the sickest moves you will ever see on a football field'.

                        Yeah watching that made me believe he's gonna throw down a sub 10.20 today under any conditions. Can't tell exactly when he shut down but his last 50 or so was extremely relaxed.

                          Actually the Jamaicans are actually more focused on World Juniors. Skeen (FS'd in the finals) has ran probably one or two 100's prior to this. Todd didn't show up for the semi yesterday and said on record that he is focusing to peak for World Jrs. Murphy has also been taking it easy all season in preparation for World Jr. (his school is not in the running for any major medals). Williams (from Turks & Caicos and the winner of the 100) is actually hoping to make it to the Olympics.

                          As for this being Bracy's initial outdoor effort, as true as that is, he also competed indoor in the 55m running the fastest time in over a decade so clearly he is in excellent form.

                            I guess this comment calls into question how important the meet in Jamaica really was. It sounds like everyone had more important things to attend to.

                              For these class 1 boys in particular I must say there are more important things... Reason being:

                              1) None of the schools these athletes represent (outside Skeene's Wolmer's) had a realistic chance of winning the overall title.
                              2) The athletes in question are so far ahead of their compatriots that they can be just fit (not in peak form) to win their event.
                              3) World Juniors is this year and so Class 1 and Class 2 athletes who think they have a shot at at World Junior title will take it as easy as possible in hopes of peaking for it.

                              I must say though that if any of those athletes were from KC, Calabar or JC I can assure you that the focus would have been different.
