AZUSA CA 3/24/01 --There had been reports that Big Bear CA sr Ryan Hall would shoot for Jim Nelson's revered 2-mile record in this meet.  Just before the meet, his coach and father Mickey Hall said that wouldn't happen, but he did expect a very fast time, perhaps sub 8:50.   

Hall won in 8:58.7 (running the full 2 miles even though the announced distance was 3200 meters).   In the girls 3200, Anita Siraki came off a bout with flu to win in 10:31 after losing at 1600 meters to Amber Steen, 4:50.2 to 4:51.6.  

Thanks to "Samarai_Runner" on the DyeStat Message Boards for this report:  

Decided to actually go see some races since Hall & Siraki were running  and there weren't any basketball games on TV. Hall ran a full 2 mi. (I guess in case he broke the record) and easily won, but wasn't close to the record. My splits (1/4 mi): 64.7-67.3 (2:12) 66.7-66.5 (4:25.2) 67.8-69.6 (6:42.5) 69.9-66.3 (8:58.8). Almost an exact duplicate of his 3200 race to win the CA State Championship (8:55.12)

Siraki ran a 3200m and had a typical negative split race. 
My splits (400m): 77-82 (2:39) 83-79 (5:21) 77-77 (7:55) 79-77 (10:31)
Temp mid-50s, no wind.

Another DyeStat message board habitue PreRules2 took the pictures below and said Hall ran "the easiest looking sub 9:00 I have ever witnessed."

Various reports from the "Hall Camp" inform us that the likeable senior is
in sensational endurance shape here, with a topped-out 95-mile training week
at competitive levels indicating great fitness for this time of year. "Training is
going extremely well, but I don't anticipate a (two-mile national) record," said
Ryan's dad and coach, Mickey Hall. "He hasn't done the real quality speed work
yet in training, so I don't anticipate him running real fast, but something under
8:50 is a definite possibility. He's way better on threshold runs this year than last,
so everything is progressing well for this point in the season." 

With Hall setting a torrid pace, such established standouts as state Division I cross country champion JJ Duke and state-meet three-milers Ryan Montez and Arturo Garcia should benefit.   From there, a bastion of excellent individuals just off the cusp of statewide notoriety will be searching for their own major breakthroughs.
