James Gilreath breaks state record in 800m

Recommended Posts

Really now?

 

 

Andrew Bumbalough's post season record times have counted for state records. Other people in the sport have said that this record should count.

QUOTE(WestTNtrack @ Jun 4 2007 - 03:37 PM) 826471238[/snapback]I talked to a TSSAA official today and he said that he didn't think the record would count.

No way this will become a TSSAA recogonized state record.

Awesome run, but this was not in a TSSAA meet.

 

neither was bumbi's 2-mile state record but it counted anyway. jackie also broke her own 100H record so hopefully that counts too. the TSSAA is going to have to start excepting that with how rapidly the quality of TN track has grown in the last few years and is still growing, most people will be running state records outside of TSSAA events. i really hope they accept it

yeah he went 1:49.98 for second at NON then was 4th at jr nats in the 400m with a 46.62. top 4 would put him on the 4x4 team for jr pan am but unfortunately he did not have his passport at the meet so he doesn't get to go. once he gets to baylor next year he will probably get down under 46 and get on their 4x4 team which you know will be a guaranteed national championship every year. i would say he will make that team his sophomore year but probably won't be quite on that level in the 400 his freshman year. if he was at any school but baylor he could make the 4x4 team his freshman year with a low-46. he will immediately be one of the top 800m runners in the nation so that will still be his bread and butter but from what i've heard he really wants to try to get on that perenial national championship 4x4 team as soon as possible.
