Okay I have watched several of the races on the online streaming. Someone mentioned in a different thread that the announcers were doing a good job and I would agree with that. However, I could not believe how casual they were being during the girls D2 3200. A girl went out in sub 5 for the first 1600 and they did not seem that excited or impressed and later in the race when I was guessing Allie would run under 10:15, they said she had a shot at the D2 record, which was only 10:33. Allie was running one of the all time great races ever run in Wisconsin and was potentially going to run the fastest time ever at state for any division, a record that had stood since the mid 1980’s and they did not seem that excited.
Not sure what my point was, except that Allie was absolutely amazing and the announcers could have been a little more informative and excited about what was happening. Only three or four girls from all Divisions ran faster in the 1600 than she did in her first 1600 meters of a 3200 race, just to put it in perspective. Her first 1600 was 6 seconds FASTER than the winning time of the DI girls 1600. Amazing.
