Reavis' wants Seb Coe to remember as he tries to improve the sport that "people can't root for shoe company logos" and argues with the team component, the NCAA 4x4 would have been "just another tight, but overall meaningless exhibition of track excellence."

Rogers talks about last year's Olympic Trials final where contact between her, Brenda Martinez and Alysia Montano kept any of them from making the team.
"It takes the pressure off my back, but at the same time, it gives me that underdog feeling that I have to work for it even more, and it motivates me to prove that I can be better.”
Distance runners making the cut are Donovan Brazier, Clayton Murphy, Brandon McBride and Edward Cheserek.

Izaic Yorks ran 3:39.14 to beat a solid 1500 field with Matthew Maton 2nd (3:39.97), Sam Prakel 3rd and Sean McGorty 5th. Elise Cranny took the women's 1500 in 4:17, Raevyn Rogers dominated the 800 in 2:02.41 and in Cheserek's absence Colby Gilbert won the 5K in 13:35 over Morgan Pearson (13:36).
Oregon women also won the 4x100.
Edwards had a solid 1500/800 double at Mt. SAC where she took down Oregon's Raevyn Rogers and finished right behind Laura Roesler. Mitchell-Blake ran the fastest wind-legal NCAA 100m of the year with 10.09 and was also on the NCAA leading 4x100.
Roesler won in 2:01.54 with NCAA indoor mile champ Edwards 2nd (2:01.97) and indoor 800 champ Rogers 3rd. Solomon ran 1:45.47 to beat NCAA runner-up Rutto (1:45.59) as well as Lopez Lomong and David Torrence.
The women's meet came down to the 4x400 where UO's Raevyn Rogers just got them the win, an hour after winning the 800 in 2:03. In other distance action, Brannon Kidder ran 1:47.40 to beat Isaiah Harris (1:47.87) and Izaic Yorks won the 1500 (3:41.56) over a field that included Robby Creese, Sam Prakel and Blake Haney.
Molly Seidel and Raevyn Rogers are the two distance runners to make the list.
Her 2:00.90 wasn't far off the 11-year-old 2:00.75 record.
Besides Raevyn Rogers' 600m time, there were a number of performances that show UO will be dependent on mid-d for points at at NCAAs.
We have zero idea why a 1:59 woman would run Jrs in a year when the only meet is Pan Ams. We guess so she remains mentally dominant.
