There’s absolutely no excuse why the Coaches of Wisconsin High School Track & Field can’t devote an hour of their weeks to submitting their marks. We are already off on the wrong foot.
- Wisconsintrackonline.com looks to have already fallen behind updating their boys hr (separate to girls contributors): http://wisconsintrackonline.com/pdf2015/BOYSHRPRESEASON2015.pdf
- The precious WISTCA initiative to use “free website” athletic.net is not off to a good start: http://www.athletic.net/TrackAndField/Division/Top.aspx?DivID=66731
- Inferior pay websites such as milesplit don’t have it right either (and never will) http://wi.milesplit.com/rankings/2015/indoor/hs/m
Meanwhile, as many of our attentions are focused on basketball this week, there was quite a race last night in Oshkosh, especially for this early. Junior Jacob Caswell took Ben Eidenschink and Sam Hinz (beat Caswell 4:27-4:30 earlier in the meet) to school in the 800. Mark my words this means he is a 1:52-53 type outdoors. Berlin is D2, Hinz a 1:54/4:15 last year, Eidenschink a 4:16 guy.

And, yes, I am hyper focused on distance but that’s not all I care about. The D3 high jumper from Princeton/Green Lake put down an impressive mark. He jumped 6-11 last year.

People out there need to take initiative and keep track of this stuff. (And no, its not going to be me…)
