    Re: Why the California HS state meet is the best

    <<<Dan--I have a question for you. Do you know where I can find the "overall" state records for high school Track and Field in the state of California? Can state records only be set in the "state meet", or can the be set any time there is the proper meet equipment (ie wind guage, FAT, etc.)? Thanks!>>>

    Greg-No, I don't know of a site with Cal HS records. The CIF site does not have them. And I'm not sure what records they'd keep anyway. Perhaps just state meet records.

    In any case, you could easily deduce the best marks by Cal HS athletes from our boys prep editor's amazing High School Track annuan, available by e-mailing [email protected]

    A long time? More than a year?

    Older stars in other states:
    Paul Cross in Florida has been 19 for a long time. Sam Zasquez of Florida is 19 now, although I don't know when he turned 19.

    If that's the case, please explain how in 2002 Edorian McCullough ran the entire season even though he turned 20 on January 6 (so he was 20 the entire season) and Kelly Willie turned 20 on September 7. I'd be very surprised if all states have the same rules. Suspect some are based on what year you were born, others on how old you are when the school year starts. A state that follows the latter rule would have an advantage.

    As to California residence rules, what does that have to do with the discussion of ages? I never brought up residency. I don't live in California and know nothing of what they do there. I noted a statistican anomaly and commented on it. I keep asking somebody to prove that there's a lots of "older" stars in other states, but nobody has done so yet.

    You are wise to remain anonymous.

    Texas follows the same rules as EVERYONE else. If you are 19 after September 1 you are eligible. Quit trying to make California some paragon of virtual. Your residence rules make a joke of "neighborhood schools".

    Bad writing on my part. The primarily should have been used in both places.

    You honestly believe that the former is PRIMARY in one place but not the other and that the latter occurs ONLY in the other? Quit imagining things, save the conspiracy theories for when you brunch with Oliver Stone.

    Well it certainly matters in the sense that if we've have a debate over the merits of CA vs TX and one of them is using primarily 17-18 athletes and the other is using 18-19, the paramters are skewed mightily.
