  • Robbie Haynie - 7598, 17-10.5, 7-0

    Robbie Haynie, Eastern Oregon, won NAIA decathlon (7598) this weekend, and had a vault of 17-10.5 in the multi. A dark horse for the trials?

    Since it is the first time I heard this name ops: I google him. Apparently, he is not your typical NCAA athlete as he is 28 and married.
    This is the full list of his results:
    7598 Haynie, Robbie/E Oregon:
    11.61-4.3 718+3.7 12.31 211 50.19 14.95+1.7 37.13 545 53.45 5:06.76
    You can argue that with better win conditions he could improve by the ~100 points. But his throws (12.31, 37.13!, 53.45) are so bad that he will need a miracle to have a competitive mark (8000+) in the trials.

      I was officiating the HJ's at that meet, so I was an "eye witness."

      He jumped 2.11 in the Decath hj on Thursday, then the next day after the Dec ended, he also won the regular hj, this time with 2.13. He almost flamed out, missing twice at 2.03. Someone said that although he won the Dec by 600 points, he really tried hard in the 1500, reaching for a Q to the OT's. Think he just missed it. And during the individual HJ I noticed that his hand was all bandaged up and then he nh'ed in the PV the next day. He must have hurt it somehow on the 2nd day of the Dec, before the individual HJ.

        With current US pole vault scene, that may be his best bet.

          It would be super hard to come back from that and get a qualifying mark in the deca (though he could certainly enter with the mark he has, and they might take him if the field is not full). He's not far off the PV qualifying mark, and he's a big PV guy (I didn't even know he did the deca until I read this).

            He is sort of like Cato (2nd NCAA Hept), except Cato is much faster (10.8, 14.0, 49, 7.88h indoors...). Cato has only done 5.25 but he is close to 5.35, especially for someone doing multis with only 3 years under his belt.
