    Jenna Rogers has reappeared in 2019 after being out all season with a foot injury (stress fracture?). Last night she won the Bergen County Meet Of Champions (BMOC) with a jump of 56 which is way below her best but a start for her first meet.

    Next up is the next three weekends of state competition in NJ: the geographical Sectionals, the State Group Championships, and the State Meet Of Champions (SMOC). Then the New Balance Meet.

    Rogers is now a Junior. We will see if she can get over 6 feet again in a shortened season.

    Things are hotting up in this year's edition.

    Guess where the winner of the 110H, Kurt Powdar (in 13.27, +0.5) is going to college.

    Same place the current CR-holder just left.

    Big difference is that Powdar appears to be strictly a hurdler whereas the current CR record holder was a top end athlete in a number of other events.

    Especially for the many of us (aka me) who didn't notice it was dragging a 2 year old thread out of the mothballs.

    Which is I prefaced my remark with, "Things are hotting up in this year's edition."

    I was just criticized for starting a new thread about Mondo TURNING PRO, which to me is an entirely new subject than the other threads about him, so I did not start a new thread for this, a HS-only thread.

    FWIW, no previous New Balance thread has carried over beyond the year of the meet. (There doesn't seem to have been one last year, at least not one so labeled.)

    Kayla Davis 51.17

    yoinks

    #7 A-T HS, and she is only 15 and a half years old.

    (also #6 A-T world U18, and probably an age record if you keep track of that kind of esoterica)

    Athing Mu was 2nd in 51.98

    How many races for Mu this outdoor season? Aside from her 2:01.xx and a low-54.x, I don't think she has run that much this spring.

    I hope she gets an invite to the Prefontaine.
