Does anyone else find it unfortunate that PTFCA accepts only 12 in the 3K? The girl’s guideline is 10:43 for instance, but it looks like the last seed time to get in was 10:20. That means a lot of fast girls were rejected as close to 30 met the standard. The NCAA accepts 16 into their final, and most of the meets we ran this year had close to 20 per heat. I realize the PTFCA only wants to run one heat in the interest of time, but I hope the committee considers expanding the field for next year!

@CoachSouders I agree I was one of the one that had a girl miss going by 0.66 seconds. Quite frustrating.

@kcornell The girl from Conneaut? She deserves to be there along with two other girls that ran 10:21. A field of 16 to 18 is more appropriate.
