8:48.6 in the World Junior Steeple heats. A 15 second PR! Huge congrats!
36 inches. The same as the Seniors.
What size barriers do high school boys use? Any conversion chart for men's barriers?
WTF? The HS steeple record was very weak. Should be at least 8:35 to 8:40.
Absolutely phenomenal. I never thought this would be broken. I ran close to 9-flat to place 3rd at US National over 10 years ago and always looked at that national record as crazy fast. !!
Pittman did run that time as a freshman at NCAAs but he must not have been a junior by age because the AJR is 8:33 by Gregorek.
Too lazy to look it up...does Rickey Pittman still hold the US Jr record--8:27?
Why would I have been able to set the hs record? 1) I never ran it and 2) I was a 4:16/9:10 hs runner. Those times don't even come close to what you need to become a hs record holder.
Yeah, that's why you couldn't break it and why it's been around 35 years. I think it was Jeff Hess from Univ. of Florida.
Think about it, malmo, it's a pretty stout time. 8:35-8:40 is equivalent to about an 8:35-8:40 for 2 miles, which has only been done by 2-3 kids in this country's history.
How is it stupid? You arent in college until you are in college. Why should high school kids have a no-man's land in the Summer where they don't count for anything? That would be stupid.
It's completely stupid that kids about to start college can set "high school" records. That window should close on graduation or June 15th or some reasonable date.
It is clearly a great time though. I'm certain that the rarity of the event being contested has led to it standing for 35y however.
Once you graduate from hs, you are no longer in hs. Correct?
Also when you finish X grade in school and are promoted to x+1 grade, that's what you are. X+1. On that day.
