I've heard rumor of a plan to have the ability to "lease" poles here in NEO. Does anyone have more details on this?

I've also loved the pole vault, but due to the costs I am becoming far less...

That race on Friday looked like a typical men's indoor Big Ten mile. They jogged the first two laps. I don't remember Howell's 800 split, but I would bet it was ~2:40. I wouldn't read anything...

A boy running the 110H and 100 gets less rest than a girl running 100H and 100.

I think Altor is spot on.

"Record eligible" should mean a wind-legal FAT time for 100, 200, LJ, etc. However, if we held ourselves to that standard then many schools wouldn't have a school record...

There was a wind gauge over by the long jump, but there was none at the track. I don't know if it was officially being used.

"All-Ohio"

I just saw a track and field picture with "All-Ohio" below the individual's image.

Is that an official designation? If it is, what is the standard? Top 8 at the State Meet?

Are you making this up?

I've never heard that "not wind legal" is equivalent to "wind aided".

There was a slight headwind all day. The weather history at Underground Weather shows a NE wind of ~9-10 mph. The track sits in a low area. I don't think it was that strong at the track, but what...

Agreed.

Two additional points:

There are always a ton of great performances at this meet.
