2009 Outdoor Season
US#1 Index
7/14-8/09 Notables
  • Not too late  There were six new national leaders (and three national records) in the final few weeks of the season, with four coming from Pan Am Juniors and Wayne Davis II NC smashing of the 110H mark with his 13.08 (+2.0) leading the way
  • He liked those Jr weight  Since he turns 19 this year, Mason Finley CO will likely never throw the Jr weight discus or shot again, but suffice it to say his memory of those implements will be fond ones.  At the Pan Am Jrs, he set USRs - 66-09.75 and 214-04 - in both of those events, improving on the USRs he set back at USATF Jrs
  • Clean sweep  Speaking of alternative weight implements, hammer star Conor McCullough CA got a rare chance to throw the 16-lb. senior hammer in late July and topped the USR with a 219-07 throw.  That gave McCullough US#1s in three of the four hammers thrown by preps, and he now holds USR in all four, with three others coming last year: 263-09 with the Youth hammer, 260-00 with the HS hammer, and 248-11 with the Junior hammer.  Adding in his record with the 25-lb. weight, he holds five prep throwing records.  He'll have one more year to try and improve his Jr hammer mark
  • Final word  While there were true superlatives in just about every throwing event this year, the greatest quality depth came in the shot put, with the well-documented quartet of 70-footers leading the way.  Suffice it to say, few expected the final salvo in the 12-lb. ball to come in late July in a "state games" meet in Texas, but that was where Hayden Baillio launched his epic 75-04.75 that puts him on top for the year.  Stephen Saenz TX held the US#1 on the first outdoor list 3/24 and after that, it was revised six times, with Baillio, Saenz, and Nick Vena NJ scoring two revisions each.  After NON, many thought Vena's 72-08 would stand as the final US#1, but Baillio had other ideas.  Ironically, the other member of the quartet that won the clash of the shot titans at NON - Mason Finley CO - never held the US#1
  • Wire to wire  Six athletes in seven total events held the US#1 spot from the first 3/24 list until this final list - Ebony Eutsey FL (400), Kori Carter CA (100H, though tied with Jasmin Stowers SC after NON), Anna Jelmini CA (shot and discus), Mason Finley CO (discus), Lauren Chambers GA (hammer), and Jack Whitt OK (pole vault)
  • Holding up  Usually the survival rate for early April US#1s is low, but despite all his attempts to improve (no one else had a shot), Jack Whitt's 18-00.25 PV from the Texas Relays stood up as the top mark the rest of the season.  Whitt vaulted all the way until the late July-early August Pan Am Jrs, with many good efforts, but couldn't quite top himself.  Brittany Porter's 21-03 nwi long jump and Kori Carter's 41.09 300 hurdles also were established in mid-April
