@ummmm I went to a 5A and know way of thinking, it needs to change.@maninmiddle, yes I believe someone who finished third in a FINAL who noone
else thinks should be there is something to mention. a girl who just set a new
State Record for her school classification and beat most the upper
classification girls. If the state is going to break it up in classes, people
should be recognized for their achievements in those classes. If it is all
against everyone, take the classes away. @Pac12 yes it does matter
if you are from 1A or 5A...hence why they have different State Champs and
records for each class. There is not just one state record in each event. There
are 5 class records. Maybe you need to learn more about that. You are right
about one thing, this article is about state records....She BROKE THE 2A STATE
RECORD! Five classifications means 5 different state records.@baldcoach I did read the article the night it was written and there was no
mention until after my comment. These articlescan be edited. It is jice to see
them put it i. and mention all the different records broken.
First off ummmm "just move to a bigger school" is such an old and over
used slam on those of us that like living in rural areas. So I won't even
go there. Man in the middle you are right it is a huge meet, but it does
allow kids from all classifications to compete against each other while still
placing with in their proper classification. That being said her time would have
placed her 3rd in the finals of the 3A-5A finals, not just the "heat".
Now 2Afan. Read all of the article. It does mention that she set the 2A
record, just like Ammon Mitchell from San Juan and even Rich High's Boys
Sprint Medley team.
Re 2AIt doesn't matter if you are 1A or 5A...track is an
individual sport. It's not like football where u have 2600 kids to make a
team verses 400. Bigger schools win.Line up, run your race. Like
golf...you shoot the best u win. Who cares if the person took third in a meet.
Wake up. these people mentioned broke state records. Your thinking
is small time 2A. Sorry.
You think someone who finished "3rd overall in the heat" deserves a
mention? This is a huge meet - she finished third.
Dont be angry, just move to a bigger school?
So what the 2A State Record in the 300 M Hurdles set by Riley Lyman of
Enterprise High? Is that not good enough to be mentioned? There really needs to
be more respect shown to smaller schools. This young lady finished 3rd overall
in the heat against the 3-5A schools and not even a blip...and she is only a
sophmore!! Spread the love DNews, we small schools exist too.
