I checked a few people and they all ran roughly :25 slower than last year at prenats, took a stab at :30. I guessed that nova didn't need adjustments from their slaughter of the course record. :30 did seem like a lot, though.
Hasay is a freshman. A great athlete. In NC's, she should run near the front, compete hard, and see what happens - and have fun doing it. All of these predictions are meaningless.
NC's can be a monster - control it rather than let the fast pace and big crowd control you - and half the battle is won.
Hasay ran a strong 3rd and impressed me with her race savvy and pacing.

Did you watch the race. Susan K. was at the front of the chase pack then droppped back at least 100 yds. to run with a teammate, then just went back to take second without any effort, she will be in it for the win.
I saw the race and I disagree. Jenny was time trialing it. If she is pressed she will leave Susan and co. in the dust. She will win by 10 sec or more. Jenny is far and away the stand out not just in NCAA but in the U.S.A. currently. I hope she can continue her success on the international level.
Here is my top 10:
1. Jenny Barringer
2. Susan Kuijken
3. Angela Bizzarri
4. Kendra Schaaf
5. Sheila Reid
6. Jordan Hasay
7. Megan Duwell
8. Christine Babcock
9. Alex Kosinski
10. Janet Jesang
