Sounds like the team had a good weekend.
This is the first time I've ever heard of the 500 meter dash. Any idea when this event was first run? A future Olympic event?
It's indoor track so it has a bunch of different events than they have outdoors.
Does anyone know it the track and the baseball coaches know anything about defensive football?
Has the event been around for a long time? I've seen a couple of indoor meets. (tv) and I never heard of the 500 meter dash.
I can't imagine sprinting that distance.
Considering they don't even have an outdoor track - I'm shocked they can get anyone to come to PItt. The local middle school where I live has one.
According to the record book on the Big East's website, they've been doing in the conference since 1980. But they do have an asterisk saying that it is not an NCAA event. So I guess it's just a specialty within the conference? What's the point?
Thanks. Learn something every day.
That is not common. I don't know of any high school that has an indoor track, let alone a middle school. There isn't even one in all of Philadelphia.
Pitt absolutely needs both an outdoor and indoor facility if it ever wants to be serious about T&F. Pitt still only finished, what, 6th at Big Easts? You need more than one stud.
