I sort of agree with this, in the 4x800 and on the girls side only, over the past few years. But my honest assessment of it has been exactly what you cite, that the need to run their fastest in order...

The southeast district in D1 sometimes has enough schools (8) to have their own district. Sometimes they have not and have been folded into the central. It is what it is. They have to go through the...

Olentangy Orange at least should be able to give Wadsworth some competition in the 4x800. They beat Wadsworth at the indoor state meet, where they set the indoor state meet record and I think had the...

Probably the best I witnessed was Scott Fry in 1985, winning the 1600 and 3200.

From a biomechanics standpoint, lane 8 should be the fastest lane for most athletes for a 200 or 400. It is the least curved. And the way that race played out, lane 8 was probably advantageous, since...
