    the problem with "anything they want" is that schools do whatever makes them look best, including ignoring monster wind readings, etc.,etc.

    It's Oregon's record; since it is not official (like world or US) they can do anything that they want.

    this thread should be about celebrating Raevyn Rogers, not kvetching about irrelevant rules

    I would also say the same thing about high school records. If you're not eligible for high school competition, you shouldn't be eligible for high school records regardless of whether or not you're enrolled in high school.

    If that's the case, I'm not sure why she'd have the school record. I guess every school can determine on their own what they wish to count as a record and Oregon wants to count Rupp's 26:48 as their school record, to stretch to make a point, they are free to do so but I agree with the others on the thread which mention that any record purposes should really end when your eligibility ends.

    I completely agree and nowadays a graduating 1:58 racer would have a shoe contract the day after the NCAAs ended anyways.

    While Oregon was trumpeting Rogers' run as an NCAA record, I find it odd that Groenendaal is listed ahead of her on their webpage of school records. I would support TFN's position that one's senior year ends at the end of the NCAA season, not a month or two later. You've either graduated and/or used up your eligibility or not. I further don't understand why the Pac 12 would consider Langerholc's record (which was set in the 2000 Olympics while she was enrolled as a junior at SC) to be the conference record while both TFN and the NCAA ignore her for record purposes. I guess the Olympics don't count since they're not an NCAA-sanctioned event.

    And Raevyn has even more work to do to get the Oregon school record of Claudette Groenendaal (1:58.33). But at least she got the NCAA record out of the way first.

    Mantano is still running. Most recently in the Milrose games 500m.

    It should be noted that 2014 was her senior year in college, so she was in mid-season form shortly after graduating. Given that she's undoubtedly expecting to peak in July and August of this year, this is an especially encouraging time for her. The W800 later this year in Sacto should be a joy to watch.
