    The DMR's by St Pius, Milton & McIntosh should have been recognized over the 4x800 of Brookwood. All 3 teams recorded top-10 times in the nation with their performances in the DMR. 2 weeks ago a 8:14 was run and not recognized (cold/wet/windy weather as well).

    @acarr6453 Thanks Coach!
  • trutrackmom12 / 2 Years Ago
    Why aren't track AOW divided into sprints and distance. For example 100, 200 and 400 and hurdles, SAOW and 800, 1600, and 3200 for DAOW. Just asking because with 6 divisions and thousands of athletes the season is about to heat up. Students should be recognized for their accomplishments in their events!
  • gawebmaster / 2 Years Ago
    We are never going to make everyone happy when judgement calls are made on AOW's.

    This is the 1st time we have recognized AOW for Track and Field. Its asking ALOT for these coaches to chair a committee when they have full-time jobs as educators, families and now they invest 30+ hours a week on stipends that amount to less than a few bucks an hr in addition to spending a couple of hours volunteering (no pay, usually on Sunday-their only day off) to choose athletes of the week. I am extremely grateful for their selfless contributions, love of the Sport and the sweat they put in coaching the student-athletes at their respective schools.

    We added Relays and Middle School this week as well (Still waiting on GISA results) A big Kudos goes out to the Athlete of the Week Committee, the Track and Field Coaches Association and The Atlanta Track Club!

    When will MileSplit GA highlight throwers of the week?
  • bjaj1 / 2 Years Ago
    Or should have said, how do they get recognized?
  • trutrackmom12 / 2 Years Ago
    I'm very sorry if you took the comment as negative. I was just simply asking because as a former coach and runner my passion is for distance. I was just noting as competition heats up that it might be easier to pick a sprinter or distant runner by glancing the stats, pr's, or whatever. While they are already glancing the data choosing the different categories just seemed easier if a toss up came up.
    Again, I am truly sorry if you viewed it as negative or the negating of more work. I know athletes and parents will be watching and I thought it could avoid some my child did blah, blah this week and he's a sprinter why didn't he get picked or visa versa.
    By the way, I know exactly about volunteering my time and at times neglecting my family only to get my feelings hurt by unappreciative athletes, parents and fellow coaches etc.
    Thanks to ALL the coaches that sacrifice their time for recognizing our athletes!!!!
    Also, I see I may have been asking too much because I see the thrower comment. I AM TRULY SORRY for opening the can of worms!
  • coachjimbo / 2 Years Ago
    So where do we think the big times that will be filling these AOW spots will be coming from this week?
    Jerry Arnold!
    Who will our individual event winners be?

    And on a related note, happy birthday to Shaquille O'Neal!

    I guess you have nothing better to do than poke unneccessary jokes. Whether you believe it or NOT I SINCERELY apologized so move on and leave it alone! This is why folks hesitate to comment on this site. Some of you chop heads when there are innocent comments and questions! Have a great night
  • deadsnail / 2 Years Ago
    He was just wondering which meet would produce the best results for the athlete of the week, I didn't see it as a comment on anything that you said. What exactly did he say that offended you? I am always curious when people are offended by things that have nothing to do with them at all.
  • MaristXCcoach / 2 Years Ago

    I would agree that their performances are superior to the 8:14, but to be frank, 75% of the country hasn't even started outdoor season let alone been to an invitational. I think it is us, Florida and Texas (and we are by far the coldest right now!). That being said, those times are great for early March in horrific weather and it bodes well for the rest of the season. I know that we are looking forward to racing a good DMR at the Holy Innocents meet later this season. Unfortunately with our "playoffs" starting in mid April as soon as teams are getting in shape there are no longer any opportunities to run fast distance relays. I remember running at our "sectional" meet in the 4x800m in Ohio and our school ran 8:03 and got 10th. There were four sectionals as well and not just two haha. A late April or early May meet with solid relays would really give kids a chance to fly. 4x8 at state anyone???? Anyone??? Bueller??
