JAVMAN83 would know better than me. He has more statewide information.This meet was FAT. This was an impressive effort. Second place was 4:37. Yingst was the D3 cross-country champ last fall and was runner-up in the 1600 last spring at the state track championships. He broke Sam Borchers of Yellow Springs record set in 2007. Lancermania, would you know what this would place him all time in the state of Ohio, all divisions
I have no problems with that. However, I differ in calling them "separate" events. If you've covered a mile, then you've covered 1600m. Converting down is done for comparison purposes only, not for record purposes UNLESS you have another recording device at the shorter distance enroute to the longer mile. Conversions on my lists do not count for records and rankings (the first two columns on my lists), but do provide a historical comparison between the two events. After all, Reggie McAfee's 4:08.5 mile in the '69 state meet is certainly a better performance than a 4:10 1600m. There's no denying that. I just don't use the conversion for official rankings.For conversionphiles like JAVMAN83 and Seek Up, one mile is 1609.344 meters. For any ranking on the coaches web site, I will continue to maintain separate rankings for the mile and 1600m as it should be, separate rankings for separate events.
