  • 2015 NCAA & USA Womens Heptathlon/Multis

    Looking forward to another great season in the NCAA & USA women’s heptathlon (and indoor pentathlon)…

    NCAA (D1):
    - It may not be easy for returning NCAA champ Kendell Williams (6018, 4635)… Looks like Erica Bougard (6118 PR unattached at 2014 USATFs) may be back at Mississippi State after redshirting 2014, and we should see Lindsay Vollmer (6086) in action for Kansas again this season.
    - A handful of other girls could near the 6000 point barrier: Harrell, Oudenaarden and Sadeiko all have sum of PR’s that are at/above 6000… and returning from redshirt years are Deanna Latham (Wisconsin 5745) and Tatum Souza (UCLA 5691).
    - Any surprises surprises this year?... Maybe Akela Jones, who is now at Kansas State (from NAIA’s Oklahoma Baptist). Although she has not been a heptathlete in the past, she already has 6000 point potential and posted a 4200 pentathlon last year, despite a very slow 800m (in 2:39.62).


    USA:
    - After Sharon Day (6550), there’s Barbara Nwaba who had a great season last year (6307) and has some room to improve on that score with her sum of PR’s over 6500. A handful of other girls who competed last year are in the approx. 6000-6100+ point range, including a couple college gals.
    - Any surprises this year?... A surprise return to the heptathlon scene this year could be 2012 Olympian, Chantae McMillian (6188), who appears quite fit and is supposedly in training for 2015/2016.
    - More 6000 point performers this year, than ever before?

        Latham's PR was set with a 13.73 100h; she has now run a 13.15 -- that is an 85 point difference, and her Pent has a 170 HJ and 598 LJ vs her Hept of 162 and 581, which are also pretty big point differences, enough to hit about 6000. In addition, her PR was in an early-season (April, very early season for Wisconsin) meet in a red-shirt season, so there was nothing on the line. [However, she did the USATF (5680) with a 598, and the Pan American Combined Events Cup (5,668 points) (7/16-18/14)]

        Apparently, she jumped 165 Saturday and then just stopped at that height.

          Akela Jones broke her PB in the 60H this weekend. Her result 8.17 (8.30) is better than Kendell Williams's PB (8.21). If she will compete in the NCAA Pentathlon this season she is likely to lead after four events as her PBs (8.17, 1.87, 14.16, 6.55) are much better than both Williams and Bougard.

            She apparently is, as she's just the 800 away from possibly going over 4400 points.
            I think it's a meet AT Ole Miss, but not sure.
            Her first 4 events (8.27 PR, 5-9.75, 11.89 & 6.31) have her at 3609 points.
            According to a tweet I saw, if she runs 2:17.7, she'll surpass 4400.

            ADD: Tweet was from USTFCCCA.

              This is a good performance for Bougard. If she will run 2:15.1 in the 800 (her PB 2:10.80) she will score 4500 points.

                meet is at Samford (well, hosted by them at least, even if not on campus)

                  She ran 2:20.97 for 824 points, and total of 4433.
                  Slower than her best, but it's still just January!
                  And I don't think she had much competition!

                    Thanks for the updates... I corrected one of Erica's individual PRs on my original post (I missed a PR 35.50 JT last year unattached at a small meet), so her sum of legal heptathlon PR's is exactly the same at Kendell Williams (both at 6328). Should be a great NCAA year, and maybe another fight for the last 1 or 2 spots on the WC team.

                    Add: Williams has her first pentathlon of the season this weekend at Kentucky, along with teammate Chapman, and a first look at new collegians Moore (Oregon) and Harmon-Thomas (Texas).

                      Checked T&FN A-T Collegiate Performances list, to see if Bougard was earliest over 4400 as a Collegian!
                      Nope, but she's 4th!!

                      BTE---4555 (1.27/12)
                      BTE---4507 (1/28/11)
                      Alcide-4464 )1/25 13)
                      Bougard--4424 (1/21/15)

                      No one else in January!
