Too bad the way the NCAA schedule works , 200 meter runners can't run the 400 ( too close together). The 4x400 lane selection seems to be a random draw lane selection . Think our men's team got lane 3 ... ..
Hope you are right but Williams of LSU has a 44.30
I was honestly surprised that Trevor & Randolph ran as fast as they did in the 1st round. But we've talked before about the length of the season and the peaking process. Maybe this was a warning shot from us to the rest of the field.
Another thing... Neither Trevor nor Randolph ran in the 200, although I think both had qualifying times good enough to do so.
Regardless, we're clearly focused on maxing out the 28 points available in the 400 and 4x400 in Eugene. Prayers up & fingers crossed.
