Part Two Of A Detailed Look At The Wilson Or "24/8" Plan for Qualifying For The NCAA Outdoor Track And Field Championships

Part 2: Men's Field Events

By LetsRun.com
May 26, 2010

This is the second of a five part series examining the 24/8 or Wilson Plan which may be used to determine the qualifiers for the 2011 NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships. Today's events are the men's field events. If you missed our initial day of coverage, which included our introduction to the series, please click on the link below. Also, we're sure we might have made a mistake somewhere along the way as it took hours to do all the research. So if you have corrections, email them here. Comments? Email them here.

Coming Sunday - Relays + Analysis/Aggregation By Conference Affiliation

Below you will find a list of the athletes who would make this year's NCAA Championships under next year's "24/8" rule, in which the athletes with the top 24 seasonal bests and the conference champions with the next 8 seasonal bests qualify for the Championships.

A "D" after a mark indicates the athlete has declared entry to this year's NCAA first round. Red indicates an athlete who had one of the top 48 marks in the East or West region for the 2010 outdoor season but is not entered in the NCAA first round in that event. The top 24 national marks of all athletes are listed plus the marks of athletes who make the top 24 when the undeclared athletes are removed from the list. Conference champions with the next 8 seasonal bests are then listed. Conference champions who would be outside of the top 24 if everyone on the descending order list declared entry to the NCAA meet are indicated as such, so you can figure out who would make the NCAA meet this year under next year's "24/8" rule if no one scratched.

Men's High Jump

Top 24 (Actually 25 as 1 didn't declare and several tied for the final spot)

1. Ricky Robertson (Mississippi) 2.28mD
2. Clint Silcock (Utah State) 2.26mD
3. Brian Knight (Mississippi) 2.25mD
4. Erik Kynard (Kansas State) 2.25mD
5. Jacques Watson (Coastal Carolina) 2.25mD
6. Derek Drouin (Indiana ) 2.23mD
7. Geoffery Davis (Purdue) 2.22mD
8. Ryan Fleck (Auburn) 2.22m
9. Major Clay (Indiana State) 2.21mD
10. Ryan Fritz (Penn State) 2.20mD
11. Paul Hamilton (Nebraska) 2.20mD
12. Edgar Rivera-Morales (Arizona) 2.20mD
13. Manjula Kumara Wijesekara (USC) 2.20mD
14. Brede Ellingsen (Arkansas) 2.19mD
15. Matt Fisher (Minnesota) 2.19mD
16. Danny Marconi (Oregon) 2.19mD
17. Darrell Roddick (Texas Tech) 2.19mD
18. Justin Frick (Princeton) 2.18mD
19. Obum Gwacham (Oregon State) 2.18mD
20. Nick Ross (Arizona) 2.18mD
21. Trent Arrivey (Washington State) 2.17mD
22. Tone Belt (Louisville) 2.17mD
23. Adam Bergo (Rutgers) 2.16mD
24. Tyler Campbell (Alabama) 2.16mD
25. Matt Evans (Western Carolina) 2.16mD (Conference Champion)
26. Brandon Fitch (Cincinnati) 2.16mD
27. Donte Nall (North Carolina) 2.16mD (Conference Champion)
28. Jamal Wilson (Texas) 2.16mD

Note: We're assuming that since there is a 4-way tie for the final spot and two of them are conference champs that the two conference champs (Matt Evans and Donte Nall) would go to NCAAs as conference champs. As a result, then either Brandon Fitch or Jamal Wilson would go as the 24th qualifier based on whoever has the 2nd-best jump or whoever closed 2.16 most recently.

Next 8 Best Conference Champions (We listed 10 in case our analysis of Evans/Nall is incorrect)
1. Matt Evans (Western Carolina) 2.16mD (Conference Champion)

2. Donte Nall (North Carolina) 2.16mD (Conference Champion)

3. Jerome McKinzie (Kennesaw State) 2.15mD
4. Ian Winston (Eastern Illinois) 2.15mD
5. Michael McCall (Akron) 2.14mD
6. Brian Miller (UMass-Amherst) 2.14mD
7. Devon Bond (UT-San Antonio) 2.13mD
8. Drew Kanz-O'Shea (East Carolina) 2.13mD
9. Emilio Hernandez (Sacramento State) 2.11mD
10. Quinn Mogoven (Wisconsin-Milwaukee) 2.11mD

Men's Pole Vault

Top 24 (Actually 26 as 1 didn't declare and several tied for the final spot)

1. Jason Colwick (Rice) 5.71mD
2. Jordan Scott (Kansas) 5.71mD
3. Yavgeniy Olhovsky (Virginia Tech) 5.50mD

7. Chris Little (BYU) 5.41mD
8. Jack Whitt (Oral Roberts) 5.41mD
9. Brandon Estrada (USC) 5.40mD
10. Josh Dominguez (LSU) 5.40mD
11. Ben Peterson (Minnesota) 5.40mD

24. Scott Houston (North Carolina) 5.30mD
25. Khalil Uqdah (Lehigh) 5.30mD (Conference Champion)
26. Kyle Walker (New Mexico) 5.30mD
Again we're assuming the system would put Uqdah in as the top conference champ and that two of the remaining three at 5.30m would go after the tie breaker is determined, but details like that haven't been finalized.

Next 8 Best Conference Champions (Actually 9 in case people don't agree with putting Uqdah in as the top conference champ)
1. Khalil Uqdah (Lehigh) 5.30mD (Conference Champion)
