I like Columbia’s shot at not only winning the National Sprint Med title but also the 4x800 title. When I look at the times, it seems pretty competitive.
You have a couple of girls that split 55 point indoor in the 4x400 and Baker has already run 2:10, 800m outdoor as a freshman, I think. More importantly, She was impressive with a 2:13 800m run indoor to win the MOC after only having 45 minutes recovery from her meet record 400m run. I think she can easily go mid 2:05 or slightly lower. You couple that with Dessein on the 400 (indoor split 55 point) or the Freshman, Trigg (indoor 56 point) or the other senior, Gadsen (indoor split 55 point) and you have strong possibilities. All of the aforementioned girls are also running 25, 200m times.
For the 4x800. I think they have the same potential to do something special. They potentially have 4 girls who could go 2:15 point each, (Baker already 2:13 and Dessein 2:13/14 indoors) and they have two other girls, Bobbitt and Coleman, who I think can do about the same. If they get on the same page, the state record could go down.
I am looking forward to outdoor season.
