Actually, the Paint Branch girls are allowed to do every event just like every other girls team. Now Olivia can only do so many events, this is true.

doesnt springbrook have a good male hurdler?

Matt D.
2009-03-25 13:24:53

yeah we do have one, and based on his results so far, he could definitely break 40 this year, 15.6, 41.3, and 52.4 yesterday

2009-03-25 20:06:13

Yes Marcus Willacy Has clearly been the better athlete in the triple jump.

Matt D.

2009-03-26 12:34:38

anyone who didn't put springbrook in their top 10 is an idiot, top 5 last 3 years, elite hurdlers and sprinters, they can score in the 110 H, 100, 200, 400, 300 H, 4x1,4x2,4x4,4x8,LJ,TJ, and prob the 800, maybe discus, and with our great B-ball team we got HJers as well. calling top 5. Get at ME!!!

Someone who doesn't go to Wootton

After watching the 3200 at the Blair dual meet, I say that Jesse Rubin is pretty fast.

Matt D.
2009-03-26 13:50:23

2009-03-26 19:10:50

2009-03-29 14:27:18

if Malcolm Wyche keeps it up, i see him taking first in one or maybe even both hurdle events, judging on the way he ran at cougar relays.
