East Region

Vote below for the two moments that you think should represent the North Region and the two moments you think should represent the West Region in the #TrackMadness quarterfinal

MATCHUP ONE

1) Grant Fisher becomes the seventh American high schooler to break four minutes in the mile. He ran a U.S. No. 3 All-Time mark of 3:59.38, exactly what Matthew Maton ran earlier this spring. 2015 marks the first year that two different American high schoolers broke 4:00 in the full mile in the same year.

1) On June 20, 2015, Donovan Brazier ran US #4 All-Time 1:47.55 in the 800m at the Brooks PR Invitational. The Michigan state champion from Grand Rapids Kenowa Hills not only beat the national class field, but won by a full three seconds as a man amongst boys.

MATCHUP TWO


1) Ryen Frazier of Ravenscroft, N.C. pulled off arguably one of the toughest triples in the sport of track and field. The senior raced and won the 5k (16:20.72), 2 Mile (10:07.16) and Mile (4:45.23) at New Balance Nationals Outdoor. Only one other person has ever pulled off the distance triple crown at NBNO, and that was Ryen's older sister, Wesley. Wesley, who now runs for NC State, won the triple crown back in 2013 running 15:55.94, 10:07.35, and 4:39.66. Ryen will run with her sister at NC State in the fall.

2) In mid-June, Kate Hall broke the National Record in the long jump with a 22-5 jump at New Balance Nationals Outdoor to win in a landslide. Her 22-5 beat Kathy McMillan's previous record that stood since 1976 by two inches. The senior from Lake Region High School in Maine broke one of the longest-standing national records recorded in girls' track and field that day by setting a massive personal record by 1 foot and 5.75 inches.

SOUTH REGION

Vote below for the two moments that you think should represent the West Regional in the #TrackMadness quarterfinals

MATCHUP ONE

1) Matthew Maton become the sixth US prep ever to break 4:00 in the full mile, running 3:59.38. He did this at Hayward Field at the University of Oregon, his soon to be college. The picture above is him with former Oregon Duck and NCAA Champion Mac Fleet.

2) Anna Rohrer also came into New Balance Nationals Indoor in a pressure situation. She has the reigning Foot Locker XC Champion and was the favorite to win the 5K at NBNI. She also just came off of a MileSplit "On the Rise" series shoot just days before her 5k. Well, the favorite didn't disappoint. Not only do Rohrer win, but she set the Indoor 5k National Record in 16:10.79

MATCHUP TWO

1) On June 6, 2015 Vista Murrieta's Michael Norman arguably ran the best sprint triple in US high school sprint history. A day after running 200m, 400m, and 4x100m prelims at the California State Meet, the junior came back the next day to run U.S. No. 6 all-time in both the 200m and 400m running 20.30 and 45.19. To put the cherry on top of this historic day, Norman split 44.9 on his 4x400m anchor leg to bring his team from 7th to 3rd and help them solidify Vista Murrieta's first ever overall team state title.

1) In the final event of the Texas UIL State Meet, Humble Kingwood's 4x400m anchor DeWitt Thomas (pictured above in blue) laid it all on the line, literally, to help his team defeat Manvel (in white) by .04. Kingwood won in 3:12.44. At the time the two marks were U.S. No. 3 and No. 4.
