Holloway Debuts, Kenny B's Back, Another ASU Star Thrower Emerges

It’s still the early days of the outdoor season, with athletes regrouping from the indoors and slowly trickling into the spring season. This weekend’s action was light, especially compared to next weekend’s trifecta of big meets at Stanford, Florida and Texas, but there were some notable results.

A few of the highlights:

Grant Holloway stuck to one jump and one jump only at the Florida State Relays. The indoor champion in the 60m and 60m hurdles, leaped 7.97m to win the competition and set the NCAA lead in the event. 

And since he’s Grant Holloway he can’t just do one thing. He came back later in the meet to run the third leg on Florida’s 4x100m team that went 38.74, tops in the nation. 

Yes, it’s only March but there is every indication that the men’s 4x100m is going to be an event to watch this year at the NCAA Championships. Houston has already put up a 38.82 and Texas Tech should roll out a potent quartet led by Divine Oduduru.

Also in Tallahassee, Yanis David of Florida set the collegiate lead in the long jump.

At the Power 5 Trailblazer Challenge, Miami’s Raheem Chambers and Tennessee’s Mustaq'eem Williams were separated by .001 seconds in the men’s 200m. Williams got the win in 21.04 in a race that was run into a -1.3 wind. 

USC’s trio of sophomore national champions all won their races with Twanisha Terry taking the 100m, Chanel Brissett winning the 100m hurdles and Kaelin Roberts dominating the 200m. 

Maggie Ewen graduated from Arizona State last year, but the Sun Devils have another big-time thrower in their midst in Georgia transfer Beatrice Llano. The sophomore set NCAA hammer throw lead with a toss of 71.43m at the ASU Invitational.

The Arkansas women were in action for the first time since their team title at the NCAA Indoor Championships. Their home meet took place in a deluge so don't put too much stock into any of the times.

Also in Fayetteville, JUCO star Kenny Bednarek competed for the first time since pulling out of the NJCAA Indoor Championships 200m. He ran 20.92 for the easy win. Not sure what that converts to when there isn't six inches of water on the track. 

Finally, at the Prarie View Relays, the Houston men ran the 4x200m in 1:21.39 to beat two Team USA squads. The race itself wasn’t particularly close, but it did feature some great PA work.

Monday’s Boston Marathon wasn’t decided in the Newton Hills, a 24th-mile run in 4:31, or a big surge on Hereford. Instead, it came down to the final meters, where Lawrence Cherono pushed past Lelisa Desisa in the last strides to win his first marathon major.

Mile-By-Mile Breakdown: 2019 Boston Marathon

The apocalyptic weather that defined the 2018 Boston Marathon doesn't look like it will return for this year's race--at least not when the elites are racing. Rain is in the forecast, but it isn't expected to last long and the temperatures are much warmer than last year, 60 degrees as 9:00 AM. The big winds are expected to make their appearance in the afternoon and the runners might get the benefit of a tailwind this morning. Desiree Linden and Yuki Kawauchi, last year's surprise winners, are looking to again manage the conditions and defend their titles.
