The standard is 14:00 for two miles for Boys and 16:30 for Girls.
In our experience, everyone on our roster will eventually be able to meet this requirement if they maintain consistency in their training. However, this doesn't mean that the path is easy or without some discouragement along the way. Up to today, we still had about half a dozen runners that had not met the standard after multiple previous attempts. These athletes deserve praise for their perseverence - for sticking with it even if they've tried and failed before.
For many of them today was the day all of their perseverence paid off! Here's what happened - the team running at Stanford tomorrow took charge of the time trial - keeping time and pacing the time trial runners. Four of them made the standard and another made great improvement and was only 6 seconds off!
- Renzo Espinosa 13:26
