6/01-07 Notables
  • Interesting weekend  The number of new national leaders picked back up to 17 this past week, but in some unexpected ways.  Three of the new marks are wind-aided, one came in a prelim (and a US record at that, by Reggie Wyatt), and California and Texas didn't rewrite the lists as extensively as many might have thought.  Great Southwest didn't get a new #1 (let alone a record) in the 4x400, but Tavaris Tate revised his own open 400 mark and Shade Weygandt exploded back on the scene to take the PV lead
  • Can't get enough Curtis Curtis Beach had another amazing weekend, as he tried for US decathlon records with both HS and international throwing implements.  While he didn't quite revise his Arcadia HS mark, he did take down a 37-year-old record in the international event - one that's rarely contested by preps any more.  So after basically doing 13 deca events, Curtis came back on Saturday and added relay legs of 1:50 (4x8) and 46.45 (4x4).  Is there anything he can't do? Shaye Maurer of Utah also set a new 2009 standard in the heptathlon, coming within 37 points of 5000.
  • Jammin' in Jersey If you go by states, the star of the weekend was not California or Texas, but New Jersey.  That state's Meet of Champions produced 4 national leaders, which California's state meet would later equal.  Texas wound up with just two new US#1s, and that's counting Marquise Goodwin twice with legal and windy jumps.  NJ, with Jillian Smith, Robby Andrews, Amber Allen and Nick Vena, may not be the biggest state but certainly has a handful of the nation's best athletes
  • Jordan on top again  Jordan Hasay has dominated the 3200 US#1 the previous two years (and #2 as a freshman), but since she didn't run Arcadia this year and had focused her top efforts more on 1500s so far this spring, it would come down to one effort to see if she could lead that event for the 3rd straight year.  She did it - despite a fast early pace that wound up foiling sub-10 hopes, Jordan easily surpassed Chelsey Sveinsson's mark
  • Andrews, for now The week looked promising for a new boys 800 leader with NJ's Robby Andrews putting his eggs in that basket at his Meet of Champs and Elijah Greer OR going against the pros at Pre.  Andrews, the indoor USR-setter, wound up with the best of it, with his 1:48.66.  Look for both to give that distance at least one more big try and for at least one of them to get under 1:48
