  1. That was an insane leg from the Arkansas anchor but hats off to Stanford. Whittaker ran a gutsy leg to seal the win. That takes physical and mental strength to push through like that with a runner bearing down on you with nothing to lose.

  2. Why can’t producers figure out how to show the other finishers instead of focusing on the after race collapse of those who have finished? Production would be better if the entire event were shown and there is interest in those who do not finish first.

  3. It would seem the coaches messed up Washington. "Washington ran three of the four women (albeit in a different order) from the squad that set the NCAA record of 10:46.62 back on February 3 at Boston University. Anna Gibson ran the open mile instead of the DMR anchor. Yet tonight’s race could not have gone more differently. The race started poorly as UW handed off in last at the first exchange, more than four seconds behind."

  4. NC State sacrificed this race for good coaching reasons. Put any of NC State’s middle distance people in the race and anchor with Tuohy and it’s game over. NC State ran 10:48 in February with Tuohy. Stanford ran 10:56 (at altitude). Great effort by Stanford by does anyone doubt that Tuohy in her present form wouldn’t have run down Stanford? Or Gregory (although she is quite on-form right now). I don’t. Kudos to Stanford and Arkansas in any case! Side note. Note that in men’s DMR, the slow teams yielded the inside lane to the fast teams. The women did not. I’ll never understand why. Let the fast teams have the inside lane(s). Please.

  5. Lauren’s 4:25 mile altitude adjustment would put her at the 2nd or 3rd fastest indoor miles by a collegiate runner if it was an open mile, just behind Katelyn Tuohy’s 4:24 or Jenny Barringer’s 4:25! Of course Tuohy ran a 4:23 split in a DMR too. Where can we see top collegiate times that are part of relays to compare them?
