The list of men's accepted entries are here, while the women's are here.
In skimming through the entries for the meet, I've made a list of events with entries that jumped out at me:
5000-Dathan Ritzenhein, Ed Moran
110hh--Eaton, Jason Richardson
400h--Jeshua Anderson, Angelo Taylor
LJ--Eaton, Norris Frederick, Greg Rutherford (GBR)
400--Maggie Vessey (!) dropping down from 800.
1500 (Mile for non collegians) Jackie Areson, Katie Flood, Jessica Tebo (above/photo courtesy University of Colorado).
The former Jessica Pixler races for the first time in almost a year after getting injured.
5000 Jenny Simpson, Jackie Areson, Angela Bizzarri, Sara Hall, Megan Goethals, Molly Huddle, Katie Mackey, Anna Pierce, Christin Wurth-Thomas.
The women's 5000 might just be the most intriguing event, after what happened at Stanford last week with Areson going under the Olympic Games A standard of 15:20, and Lisa Uhl & Brie Felnagle just missing.
Steeple--LIsa Aguilera, Delilah DiCrecenzo
High Jump--Sharon Day, Brigetta Barrett
Pole Vault--Carly Dockendorf, Keisa Monterola, Melissa Gergel, Katerina Stefanidi
Needless to say, Mt. SAC will be one of the most fascinating meets of the early domestic season.
JUST FOR KICKS & GIGGLES…
Back in the good old days, before the trend in college track & field to go to invitationals to chase marks, there was the dual meet--your school versus mine, mano a mano.
Times weren't as big a deal as long as your guy/gal finished in front of the other team's guy/gal.
With the University of Washington's outdoor track facility beyond bad over the last few years, and spring football taking priority over Husky Stadium, one of the fixtures that's been eliminated from the calendar is the annual Washington/Oregon dual meet.
The only semblance of a scoring meet that Washington and Oregon have partaken in is the Pepsi Team Invitational in Eugene, where the two schools compete against two other schools in a four-way meet.
Just for fun, I went ahead and scored last weekend's Pepsi Team Invitational as a straight dual meet (5-3-1, 5-0 in relays), throwing out marks from UCLA and Texas A&M, and here's how it ended up:
In the men's team competition, the Ducks won 102-61, helped by 8-1 scores in the long jump, 110 hurdles, triple jump, 800, and 5000, plus winning both relays.
In the women's team competition, Oregon won 114-49. helped by 8-1 scores in the shot put, steeple, high jump, 800, 5000, 100 & 400, along with 9-0 sweeps in the 100 hurdles and 200, plus winning both relays. The Huskies erased Oregon's sweeps of the 100 hurdles and 200, by taking the javelin and triple jump.
As a note, I left the men's high jump competition as is, with Washington's AJ Maricich getting the win over Oregon's Danny Marconi. Having said that, Marconi should have gotten the win, as both cleared 6-8 (2.03m) with Marconi needing two tries, and Maricich needing three.
Here's hoping the dual meet between the Ducks and Huskies gets revived after Washington gets its new track & field facility!
