11. I’m still unsure why two brands that care so much about high school participation limit participation in their events and hold events on the same weekend. It’s not good for the sport.

13. Nico Young totally impressed with his 5,000m and 3,000m wins at #NCAATF
14. Parker Valby was incredibly impressive with her 5000m/3000m double at #NCAATF.
15. Juliette Whittaker took the 800m in a huge upset, giving Stanford back-to-back wins by different Stanford athletes (last year, Roisin Willis), like the 1982-83 double wins at 3,000m by Ceci Hopp and Alison Wiley!
