    1. we should send several to the NCAA’s. The field events and 3K are our strengths on the men’s side. If coach can attract two more sprinters to combine with Corey and his wing man in the 400 we are going to be hard to handle!

  1. I will have to get out and see this guy (Jacory) run one of these days/years. Sorta tried a couple weeks ago, but on a learning curve here, still fun to even watch the wannabes run

  2. Jacory has the stride of a big time track sprinter. He is very fluid and as he matures he is going to get stronger and faster. I expect to see him competing in the finals of the 400 within 3 years.

    1. I saw that too! I ran the 400. Becks time would beat Jacory too:-)

      21.36 in the 300 is either a misprint or Beck is better than Bolt!

  3. Don’t we all wish Bill Brill was still here so he could eat his words? May the dead rest in peace.

    1. He was in the Decathlon. All of those PR’s were from his competition in that event. He was NOT in the regular version of those events.
