Also, live results from the following meets:

Granada Distance & Sprint: http://diablotiming.com/results/2019-04-13/

I will be posting a preview of the CCS Top 8 meet tomorrow. In the meantime, feel free to comment on any of the most competitive events. It doesn't appear like the meet will have as many of the top competitors as it usually does and that may be because of the spring break dates this year. Nonetheless, it should be a great night of competition.

Photo of the week


While working on the CCS Top 8 meet preview, I noticed this one photo from last year's section final in the boys' 3200m. It was taken by Pietro Brezzo. Very cool. 

Feel free to share some of your favorite photos in the comment section below if you have a link. If you want to send the photo to me as an attachment, go ahead and do so to albertjcaruana@gmail.com and I will be happy to post.

Unsportmanlike or not?




I know I have seen lots of discussion about this but was curious what you thought about the LSU sprinter's reaction after the race. Was it bad sportsmanship? Good for track? Thoughts?
