Good luck to these athletes.


A good article from the TU, but I wish I knew what his (Burns) chances are. At this point you know who qualified and what their times are. In all liklihood they have been seeded by this time.


Also I wasn't familiar enough with some of the other athletes and coaches to vote, but if Burns makes it to nationals he should move up everyones list. Also a huge fan of Coach Vives and what he does with this program every year.

His distance in the javelin must show how weak that event is at the high school level. What a huge disparity between the champion and eighth-place competitors:


1. Sean Furey (Dartmouth), 241-09


8. Marc Pallozzi (Albany), 209-07


That is a hell of a margin. But to me that just says there aren't a whole hell of a lot of javelin throwers out there, right? Most races are decided by a few seconds, top to bottom.


Now, here is something: Pallozzi's distance would have made the nationals if he was in the Midwest Region.


I think the story on the UA also says he fell short of making the nationals, but really I think they take some wildcard entries based on distance from the competitors who didn't finish in the top five. That is what the TU story said about Burns' race.


I count five people among the four regions that threw better than him (but weren't in their top 5) ... meaning if they take six wildcards, he would get in. Thoughts?

Not just first to 8th - the margin over second place was 13 feet. Five guys were between 228 and 218, and Pallozzi lost seventh place by only one centimeter.


Pierson finished 10th in the 3K steeplechase, Elliot was 28th in the triple jump.

I think this guy threw amazing. I worked with a guy who is an Assistant at NU. His specialty was the Javelin when he was at Maine. If he threw that distance he would be very happy...and this is a guy who was trying out for the US Olympic team.
