Region 4 & Region 12 Day 1 Results - Missing data?

 
Wayne weather ended the meet. Some field events completed. 100 and 110 hurdle prelims. Girls 100 prelims. Guess they are running all finals Friday.
Hmmm....it must've hit after I went by that area earlier in the evening. Moving to timed finals? Not a fan of that. Would rather go through standard prelims for non-relays starting early on Friday & push the finals back an hour. Timed finals for relays, sure, I understand that.
 
If I'm not mistaken, weather interrupted Day 1 in 2022 at Wayne. The same exact events were completed - 4x800s, 100/110 hurdle prelims and girls' 100 prelims. Everything else was moved to a timed final on Friday.

Thank you for the update.
 
Troy had a hail storm right before the 4x100

When I was officiating track meets, here is what the OHSAA says: if there is thunder of lightening, you have to suspend then meet for 30 minutes. If there is more thunder or lighteniing at any time during the 30 minutess the 30 minute wait starts anew at that point.

This is correct. We shouldn't even be on the track warming up again until 30 minutes after the last thunder was heard.
 
I understand the rule but with today technology (smart phones) it seems a little dated. Was at a track meet this spring and there was thunder so the meet was delayed (eventually cancelled because just kept hearing thunder to the east and was a school night) but everyone could see on their phones that the storm formed after it when over where the meet was and it never did rain. So everyone just stayed seated on metal bleachers and kids just hung around the track area until it was cancelled. The school/cars/buses were about a 1/4 mile walk so not really convenient.

It seems that with this technology that wasn't around when the rule was put in place would enable the policy to be updated. Obviously don't want to put people at risk but we have all seen or heard lightning and thunder look at our phone and knew it wasn't going to hit where you were.
 
Nope. If you hear thunder, it's too close. During the day, you will hear thunder before you see lightning. But, you only hear the thunder if it is less than 10 miles away or so. Get everybody inside.

Doesn't matter what the technology. Lightning can strike 12 miles in any direction from it's origin, so if you can hear thunder, you are within the strike zone. That doesn't change with technology. Just for fun, I looked it up to see if what I remember is correct. I remembered correctly.

"Lightning can travel 10 to 12 miles from a thunderstorm. This is often farther than the sound of thunder travels. That means that if you can hear thunder you are close enough to a storm to be in danger of being struck by lightning. When thunder roars go indoors."

The weather was bad. The wind was horrible.

Timed finals are very nice for all athletes doubling or tripling. The top athletes benefit from having two heats instead of one heat. The extra rest for everyone sprinters and distance runners will be appreciated.
 
Nice results coming out of the Wayne D1. Just noticed that the boys' HJ record is held by Ryan Fitzpatric (they misspelled...there's no "k" at the end), and that he's from Cincinnati Archybishop Moeller. I must've missed Archybishop Moeller...related to Archie Bunker?
 
Likewise one new record was set in girls competition.
There wasnt much doubt if Wayne ever put together a fully loaded girls 4x100 this year they would be the fastest in the state. And now they are. Will be interesting to see if they can grab the state record in addition to their new Regional mark. They certainly have the personnel.

#2 Wayne girl rolled. It was one of the best legs of a relay that I have ever witnessed. Shot out of a cannon.
 
I am amazed at how Withrow’s program fell apart. They did not score a single point at the district meet, boys or girls.
 
The Lady Tigers had a five year run finishing in the top four at state:

2013 -2nd
2014 -4th
2015 - 1st
2016 - 1st
2017 - 1sr
There has to be tons of talent in Cincinnati Public. The kids didn’t migrate to other schools when Withrow’s coach retired. They just aren’t competing anywhere. What a shame. Someone could be building another monster team if they wanted to.
