    What a horrible, horrible way to set up the start of an 800! Who dealt this mess, anyway? If they have to have 12 in the final, do it like DL, in lanes for first turn, some lanes shared. They were just asking for trouble, and they got it.

    Fiona O'Keefe, a junior from Davis, CA, 15 miles south of where I live, came in with a 10:00.85 state (and national?) leader. She led all the way, right on pace for 10:00, but had no turn of speed whatsoever when challenged. I noted a few days ago that she was not attempting a double -- kudos to her coach! The top three from the 1600 were doubling back, but Collins was just too good. O'Keefe, like Collins, is a junior, as is 1600 champ Gehrich.

    Noted: Rylee Bowen, 9th grader, 4:55.60
    Cassi Land, 9th grader, 10:54.28
    Niki Iyer, 10th grader, 10:48.60
    Too bad the results don't show their ages.

    Last year's champ, Sarah Baxter, is apparently red-shirting and has just two races this year, 4:29.54 1500 (PB) for 6th place at Salem on March 28, and 16:40.44 (PB) for 7th in Eugene April 17.

    I wonder how many of these will be competing in the USATF Junior meet, to be held along with the Senior meet June 25-28. Having them together is going to make for some long days at the track, 6-7 hours. Actually, Friday's schedule runs for about 11 hours, but I think I will catch the Junior 5000s starting at 10:15, then go have brunch and come back for the Junior 1500 heats around 14:30.

    agreed... one would think that someone with the right kind of experience would deal with an obvious accident waiting happen. Who pays ... the athletes, whom the meet is held for. Or at least that's the way I've always seen it.

    I've heard of HS redshirting for decades, although I can't cite any chapter or verse.

    Most (all?) states have closed that loophole.

    In most instances the "redshirting" has to happen BEFORE high school.

    In any case, as booond has pointed out, Baxter graduated last year and is at OU.
