Women Compete Thu./Saturday: *MB: Official 2016 NCAA Women’s Outdoor Track And Field Discussion Thread

LRC 2016 NCAA Outdoor Women’s 5K/10K Preview: Arkansas’ Dominique Scott Goes For the Double That Eluded Her Last Year With Molly Seidel out for the season with a stress fracture and Erin Finn focused on the Olympic Trials, Scott, who finished second in both events last year, is the NCAA leader at both distances (15:25/31:56). On paper, SEC rival Chelsea Blaase is her biggest competition in the 10k but seems past her peak; could Georgetown’s Katrina Coogan threaten in the 5k after moving up from the 1,500?

LRC 2016 NCAA Outdoor Women’s Mid-D/Steeple Preview: Can Raevyn Rogers (800), Marta Freitas (1,500) & Courtney Frerichs (3,000 SC) Deliver As Favorites? Freitas (4:09.80) and Frerichs (9:29.31) have SBs that put them well ahead of the rest of the NCAA, while Rogers is the defending NCAA indoor/outdoor champion. Can indoor mile champ Kaela Edwards challenge Freitas in the 1,500? What about Stanford’s super-soph Olivia Baker (NCAA-leading 2:01.02) in the 800?
