Sarah Robinson WOW......... can she please run track in college??

Albert Caruana said...

Lots of upside. I am sure the Stanford coaches will have a conversation with her about running.

How many meets in a row can you triple?

Albert Caruana said...

Depends on how extended you are in the three events. Realistically, Sarah had one hard effort yesterday which was in the 800m. Her 1600m. and 3200m. seemed fairly controlled.

any reason why Dante Hay was DQ'd in the 1600 at Redwood Empire?

Some comments on the Bayshore venue. I should be happy Castro Valley hosted but some critique. There were no programs, speaker system hard to hear, the announcers only gave the entries last name and without their school's affiliation but most of all none of the running results were announced or given. I think they did announce some of the winners of the field event but nothing for the track events. Had to get those results here 8-(!

Robinson will be fried by state. She ran in all three for league, SCVAL qualifier, now CCS Trials. If she runs three hard races in the finals spread only an hour apart for the finals that girl will be toast for state. Four weeks in a row doubling? I understand the "why not" thought but she has a shot at State. Why risk that tripling? Running all out in the 1600 then 800 then a 10:30 for 3200 then state trials then finals? Way too much. Focus on winning the mile, you can be state champ! 3200 is a bonus.

I was one of the announcers at Bay Shore...

Yeah, the speaker system was not easy to use and it was hard to hear if you were on the backstretch. But people on the homestretch could hear it for the most part I think. We can't really hear how it sounds on the track when we're in the booth and no one was really complaining to us.

As far as reading the entry names, the heat sheets we were given only showed last names and some of the first names. But as you may know, some names are very hard to pronounce and we certainly don't want to guess what the name is if we can't see it or pronounce it. So we went with the last names since that was all we could see. I'm quite knowledgeable of many runners around the area so I knew who some were, but only the top runners really. We only gave the names of athletes because sometimes the heats cycle very quickly and we only had time to say the names. The stadium needs to be quiet when the gun goes off after all. When I did only say names, I tried to mention the school of the kids I was announcing during the race.

And as far as results, we only read what we were given and had time for. Sorry, you did not enjoy the meet as much as we did and thank you for your critique. If we are asked to do it again next year, we will try to improve upon it.

Hey Andrew,

I'm the one complaining about the Bayshore. Couldn't be all bad..was there to support SMB..so it was all good.

Love the BHS rendition of the National Anthem but quit with the promo of State Farm insurance..cause I don't think he knew all the words too! 8-)

Albert Caruana said...

That promo is paid for by you know who. Have to take care of the advertisers.

Anonymous said...

Sure..I understand it about the advertisers. But think the state farm song was being sung after each lull ..cause the announcer had to fill up the silence

Albert Caruana said...

I believe they have a script they have to follow.

Andrew said...

Haha, yeah. One of my co-announcers did the jingle a lot. He was bored I guess. Congrats to St. Mary's, the girls dominated and boys did very well too!

As for my question with Hay - yeah, it looked like something happened at the beginning of the last turn (looking at video taken by Hay's dad). It was hard to see since it happened right where there was a tent on the infield. Thanks for clarifying, Steve.

CCS girls 800 final will feature 6 of 8 who have times in the Top 50 AT. The 2 girls who made state finals are ranked 5 and 6. 5 of the 8 including the final 2 had already run the 1600 and qualified.

I wish I was in the position of Robinson's coach but I can't imagine why she would triple in the finals. She's going to likely drop one of the races at state and it is hard to pass up an automatic final. I can't imagine 5 all-out races in 5 days and doing well in them. If you drop state why burn a race at the finals. I really don't care either way it's not my kid but if it's true finals will be her fourth week tripling if be surprised to see her run at state for the fifth consecutive week of doubling or tripling. Amazing she has made it this far, at testament to her talent and ability to recover. Probably could be a world class runner.

If you got it flaunt it. And she got it. I personally would love to see what she could do absolutely fresh in the 3200. Drop the 800 and 1600 for the finals, only run 3200. Run controlled for the win at CCS and go for sub 9:50 at state, maybe the state record.

My second choice, do all three. It's a test of the human spirit. An experiment of sorts. Insane, but that's what we love about track.

I do agree on one thing, glad I'm not the coach. Tough decision.

Albert,
You took my post down?
You should then take yours down on the same subject. You post, without explanation, has slanderous overtones.

Albert Caruana said...

Done.

Any idea when heat sheets for the MOC will be out?

Anonymous said...

THE NCS has NOT released heat sheets before the meet in th epast

Andrew and anybody else interested, If you want to see a better video of the 1600 at NCS Redwood Empire, check this video out (link below). You can see where Hay pushes the leader from San Rafael on the last lap very clearly.

You can also see on the video how the San Rafael kid clearly impedes Hay by not allowing him a stride length before cutting into the rail. Hay's shove would appear to be necessary to keep from being tripped. Not worthy of a DQ.

Anonymous said...

Well the kid didn't have a stride length and the push was a little more than necessary no doubt. The right thing to do would be to let it go (you all know Billy Mills on the last lap of his 10k gold medal 10k right?) or you DQ both.

Unless there was an official right there you can't make that call from across the track.
