These will be held from May 24-26 in Jacksonville, FL (ugh). If they go by past prelims, the top 12 from each event will go to the NCAA final championship in Iowa, June 6-9. I am not certain of the number of entries in each event in these regional prelims. But the Hoyas have a few that will most likely qualify. Track and Field News (the Bible of the sport) has Emily Infeld winning the 1500m and Rachel Schneider finishing 9th. I am not sure if Emily will run the 1500 or 5000m. Unlike last year when Sheila Reid of Nova won both, it would not be possible for a woman to double this year. Emily is almost guaranteed a spot in the 5000m, but does not have a very fast 1500m. Even though she was 2nd at the BE meet, the time was not in the top marks. (On the other hand Rachel has a 4:16 mark to her credit, so she will most likely run the 1500.) Consequently, Emily may run the 1500m in one of the two qualifying meets this weekend - the Carolina Qualifier in Chapel Hill or the Swarthmore Last Chance meet. Also, on the schedule for this weekend is the IC4A/ECAC meet.

Not too much going on at the IC4A/ECAC. Amanda Kimbers is entered in the 400m, and Tenille Stoudenmire is entered in the 100m and 200m. Matt Howard was entered in the 3000m SC, but he did not start. Winning the IC4A steeplechase was the son of GU great (in the SC, but also in the 1500m and 5000) John Gregorek: 1 Gregorek, John SO Columbia 8:53.29 10 2 Owens, Eddie FR Princeton 8:56.39 8 3 MacDonald, Josh SO Liberty 8:57.34 6 4 Sterling, Henry SO Dartmouth 9:00.63 4 5 Quinn, Adam SR Binghamton 9:01.57 3 6 Thompson, Shaun FR Duke 9:01.59 2 7 Richards, Nathan SR Yale 9:04.58 1 8 Whelan, Joseph SO Syracuse 9:09.59 9 King, Tyler SR Princeton 9:16.89 10 McGee, Brandan SO UMBC 9:20.81 11 Robinson, Dominick JR Duke 9:23.43

Two results from the ECAC meet. Tenille Stoudenmire qualified for the semis in the 100m in 12.14. She ran 12.00 in the semis, but did not advance to the finals. Amanda Kimbers running the open 400 led all qualifiers with a very good 53.87 (PR?).

Two more results from the IC4A meet. Biyerem Okengwu finished 2nd in his heat in 14.42, but his time was not fast enough to make the finals. The 4x400m men's relay team qualified for the finals with the 4th fastest time: Akers, Ulm, Perron, Wilson 3:09.46. Fastest qualifying time was turned in by Kevin Wilson's former school of George Mason.

The men's 1500m was a hot one too. Coach Banks and Andrew Springer both ran the equivalent of a 4-minute mile. Coach Banks was 3rd in the elite heat in 3:40.71 (equivalent to about a 3:57-8 mile) and Andrew was 5th in 3:41.13 (about 3:58-9 mile).
Other Hoyas: Bobby Peavey came in 10th in the 2nd heat in 3:46.39 and Miles Schoedler in the same heat was 13th in 3:47.99. Mike Reher was 3:49.18 and 4th in the 3rd heat.

Back at the IC4A/ECAC meet, the men finished in a tie for 37th with their one scoring venture in the 4x400m, where they finished 3rd:
1 Delaware State 3:07.14 10 1) 233 Brown, Tyquan JR 2) 234 Carter, Ryan JR 3) 235 Devore, Tariq JR 4) 237 Holmes, Donte SR 2 George Mason 3:09.85 8 1) 309 Vaughn, Nick SR 2) 293 Empty, George JR 3) 308 Vaughn, Adrian SO 4) 297 Jones, John JR 3 Georgetown 3:09.86 6 1) 314 Akers, Hansel SO 2) 319 Ulm, Toby SR 3) 317 Perron, Austin SR 4) 320 Wilson, Kevin SR
Notice the time of the Hoyas vs GMU. Kevin Wilson, GMU grad almost ran down his former teammates, or at least that is how I would perceive it. It would have been fun to have seen that race.
The women did not score. Amanda Kimbers had the best qualifying time, but she was DQ'ed for a lane line violation. She would have gotten a good time, since the 2nd fastest qualifier won in 52.2.

Probably should start another thread on this, but I won't. The Occidental College High performance will be held in California tomorrow and a bunch of our alums are running. In the women's 1500m, Treniere Clement Moser, Liz Maloy, Maggie Infeld, and Renee Tomlin will be divided among the three elite heats (only Treniere and Liz will be going head to head). Liam Boylan-Pett will be running the 800m, while Andrew Bumbalough and Mike Banks will be running the 1500m (in separate heats).
