Weekend Results 4/21-22


#1

Some impressive marks from the ACC Outdoor Championships:

Kemar Hyman of Florida State wins the 100 in 10.07 with 0.8 wind. Maurice Mitchell followed in 10.21. Hyman’s best last year was 10.27 but he did run 6.56 indoors this season.

Devon Hill (Miami) won the 110s in 13.35 from Spencer Adams (Clemson) who followed in 13.39 (wind 1.9). Hill is a senior who had a best of 13.54 prior to this season. Adam’s best was 13.55.

Both Hyman and Hill take the collegiate leads with their times.

Lance Roller (Virginia) wins the 800 in 1:47.82, his fastest time since 2010 when he ran his best of 1:46.11.

Bryshon Nellum ran a collegiate 400 leader at Mt. Sac running a personal best of 45.18. His first personal best in the 400 since his 45.38 which was run his senior year in high school. After all the struggles he has gone through, I can’t imagine how he felt after hearing his time.

A nice breakthrough for Hyman.

Nick Vena’s 64-0 at the ACC’s is another step forward. He is slowly gaining on Crouser.

Bravo. Humor at its finest. Truly the cherry on top of the sundae.


#5

Andrew Riley from U of I ran 13.28 in the 110H losing to Aries Merritt by .03 in 0.9 wind. It’s shaping up to be a fantastic field

#7

Kimberlynn Duncan 11.05 1.0w on a rainy, ~60F day.


#8

If English Gardner can find her Pac-10 form from last year and then hold it through NCAAs we could have quite a race . . .


#9

Isiah Young, a junior from Mississippi ran 10.08 at Drake for the win with a 2.2 wind behind him. He has a best of 10.16 from earlier this year and has backed that up with a 10.19 this year as well. In the 200 he has run 20.33, 20.49 and today ran 20.34 to to finish 2nd behind Spearmon (who ran 20.02) with a following wind of 1.7.

Why does any of this truly matter? In the out-of-the-blue category, he did not run outdoors for Mississippi in 2011, ran one indoor race - a 6.30 55m and spent 2 years at Allen Community College in Kansas prior to transferring.

According to his bio on the Ole Miss site, he bests at Allen were 11.00 and 22.00! Not exactly indicative of what he is doing right now.

Might be one to watch.
