    Some noteworthy results yesterday, in the component of the meet that is more distance-focused:

    Samantha Watson continued her climb up the US HS a-t 800 list, with a 2:00.78 PB (behind Charlene Lipsey 1:59.57, who continues her best season ever -- that's her outdoor best, and her 2nd fastest mark overall, having run faster at Millrose). Watson moves ahead of Ajee Wilson into 3rd on the a-t HS list.

    m5000
    1. Muktar Edris (ETH) 13:01.04
    2. Cyrus Rutto (KEN) 13:03.44 PB

    m800
    1. Brandon McBride (CAN) 1:45.36
    2. Marcin Lewandowski (POL) 1:45.76

    boys HS 'dream mile'
    1. Patrick Parker 4:03.99 PB (from 4:06.72, 2016)
    2. Austin Hindman 4:04.53 PB (but I don't know what else he has at this distance)
    3. Casey Clinger 4:04.87 PB (from 4:05.96, 2016)
    4. Isaac Green 4:05.23 PB (from 4:09.69, 2017)
    So, although nothing 'history-making' (in US HS terms), excellent running from these young athletes. Also, some other PB below these (per all-athletics.com), but I did not look into them.

    girls HS 'dream mile'
    1. Lexy Halladay 4:41:80 PB (from 4:48.43i, 2016)
    2. Brie Oakley 4:41.95 PB (from 4:46.97, 2017)
    3. Lauren Gregory 4:42.00
    ditto comment from HS boys mile, above.

    Lexy Halladay's 4:41.80 Mile breaks the OUTdoor Freshman Class record of Mary Decker (Slaney)---her 4:42.0 from 1973!!

    BTW, I was the first to tweet about that---as USATF, MileSplit ID, and others did NOT mention it----until about 30 minutes AFTER I did!!

    Inauspicious start to the season, but here's hoping that was just a rust-buster. I note that the current T&FN formchart is not enamored with her USATF chances; she is listed 6th.

    These are pretty weak marks from these ladies for June. However, I note that the USATF projections have such runners as Okolo and many others, some of whom where the new ones coming up just a year or so ago and include the reigning Gold medalist, DL winner.

    Bowie wins the 150m in 16.30.

    Is this the 150 world record? (not en route to 200m)
