Girls state Dunlap team title chances

Post by 225guy » Mon May 15, 2017 7:40 am

After looking at state qualifiers. Dunlap is the big favorite. Distance running seems very weak state wise(all the best xc runners not running 1600 or 3200) Fran and Ayah will both finish top 3. Fran should contend for a top 3 finish in 1600. The 3200 relay ran unbelievable. Coach called them out and the relay responded well! Top seed in 4 by 100 and 4 by 400! Strong individual runners in 100, 300 hurdles, and the 800. Plus points in the field events long jump, triple jump, and pole vault. Even if a few bad races 2nd place is a look,like in xc. Just too deep not to medal. Crazy deep

Nothing in high school sports is a lock, ever. Dunlap is good, deep, and talented, but they are not a big favorite. Scoring the meet on paper based on sectional performances, using the state scoring (10 points for the win, 8 for second, 7 for third, down to 1 for ninth), Dunlap beats Cahokia 84-82. Also, don't count out Springfield Southeast who were only a few points behind Cahokia at sectional. It should be a great meet with Dunlap making history and bringing home the first state trophy in track in school history.

Could be a long day for the girls in both 2A and 3A. 2A field events that can move inside have already been moved inside. The track events are already under a lightning delay.

Good result: Washington wins heat 1 of the 4x800 in 9:54
Bad news: the meet is delayed right after for more weather and lightning.

It's going to be a long day!

Dunlap has qualified their 4x800 and 4x100, Pauli in the 100, Sullivan in the LJ, and Brooks in the 800.

Running have to be outdoors and pictures from Charleston look partly sunny. Add 4x200 to finalists for the Eagles. Right now both Cahokia and Dunlap are holding serve.

Add the 4x400 for the Eagles and Tamara in discus and Sydney in pole vault. Both Dunlap and Cahokia got everything they expected to get through except for a single event (300 hurdles for Dunlap, 4x400 for Cahokia). Dunlap got a bonus with a long jumper getting through. Relay match-ups might be key tomorrow, so the 4x400 miss on the part of Cahokia looms large.

Cakokia 4 by 400 out is huge. I believe they had a top 3 seed time. 7 points is huge.

Pretty sure at this point that Dunlap takes 2A title - congrats to the lady Eagles! And this might not be the only one....BTW, do not know a lot about Dunlap's history other than they were in the old Blackhawk conference, but how many state titles has the school won in all sports?

I thought Dunlap was a young team this year - how many girls do they lose? If they are young it looks like Dunlap might be challenging for another state title the next year or two...

Only three seniors scored, Jena Brooks in the 4x8, Alex Schaub in the sprint relays, and Tamara Hermann in the discus. They should be the heavy favorite next year.
