A/AA sectionals (middle)

QUOTE(thecrippler2222 @ May 18 2007 - 01:22 PM) 826461973[/snapback]well this is only the third year of the new qualifying format so it has never happened. the middle had 4 qualify in both of the first 2 years as well as all 4 spots in all 4 distance events (32 16 8 4x8) this year is pretty crazy with the middel getting just one of the 2 1600m at large bids and neither of the 800m at large bids. they still got both in the 32 and 4x8 though

 

 

the 1600 had a lot to do with patterson dropping that event. the middle would have easily gotten all 4 qualifyers

Interesting opinion... I disagree though.

Agreed. Patterson could walk a 4:47 in his sleep.

 

 

 

 

But shut up I'll take it.

i would say boys 4x4 then the girls 800 because the guys 4x4 was closer and they were fighting for state spots. the girls 8 had 4 girls all really close (not quite as close as the 4x4 but close) but they all knew they were going to state so they were just fighting to win the race and that was it. it was definately the second most exciting race though. it will be the same 4 fighting at state, neither of the other 2 sections has anyone close. its gonna be Sybil Levine winning it in the last 50m again with a 2:20.7, thats my prediction. the guys 4x4 at state will be extremely intense because it will probably determine who wins the whole meet like it does so many years. i know the middle should do well at state with lipscomb, fra, station camp, and mlk all getting a good number of events there. mlk won't do the best out of those 4 but in my opinion were most impressive as a TEAM getting all 4 relays to state, how often does that happen in A/AA? unfortunately they lack any big name individuals like ryan johnson or adrian bentley. who will be the big contenders from the other sections?

i think Brainerd will win it hands down. how can u compete with them, they like start off with a 30 point lead bc of bentley?

Imagine if the 3200 was between the 200 and 4x4 like in some states and Bentley could close out Brainerd's 4x4.....

i thought it was pretty crazy that the mlk girls managed to get 3rd with only like 5 or 6 girls on the whole team. markie and kara were very impressive as were the pearl cohn girls

I have to agree, if you just take points from where bentley and the rest of the team is seeded then they end up having 76 points. That'll be tough to beat even though they probably won't end up getting all of those points. Having a 76 point prediction coming in is very high.

 

I also found it amazing that Knoxville Catholic qualified someone in every field event, that's impressive. It's too bad they only qualified one person in the 800 or they would have a very hefty lead going into the running events at night.
