I am in Switzerland on vacation and saw the Pre meet covered on Euro Sports--the women 800m came up on the screen and I watched Latrobe PA (and VA Tech) own Hannah Green race from last to 4th down the final stretch to get a PR 1:58.75 behind Caster Semanaya...world champion. Quite a classic field and hannah continues to do special things on the track in her post-collegiate career! Go WPIAL D7!!

@sverige55 The day of discussions on here is pretty much over. I was at states the year that the state 800 record was set. I don't think that girl ever got as fast as the one you're mentioning.

@JimDillner More on Hanna Green's (Latrobe 2013, VA Tech 2017) 800m 1:58.19 PR...this puts her at all-time 20th on the US list for 800m women. Around 150th all-time world list. Notably, Ce-Aira Brown of Overbrook High/Phila (2012) is 17th all-time US with her 1:58.01. The girl you are talking about, Jim, who you saw at the PA state meet is Chanelle Price of Easton High near Allentown, who ran 2:02.90 setting the state record at the meet you saw in 2008. Two weeks later Chanelle ran 2:01.61 at the Pre Classic on the edge of graduation from high school. As a junior in 2007, Chanelle ran 2:02.76 winning the national Nike meet and was 7th at the national championships!!! As a HS junior! Chanelle did win the world indoor 800, 3 years ago but her PR has "only" edged down to 1:59.10 which is 31st AT US list. She ran college at Tennessee. Chanelle's marks in HS were certainly incredible. Interestingly, Ce'aira Brown ran 56.34 400m at 2011 states as a junior and finished second in 2:11.01 to Emma Keenan of Gwynedd-Mercy's fast 800m winner 2:07.06 in 2012. So Ce-aira has run 13 seconds faster than her HS PR. Hanna ran a 2:16 800m (HS PR) as a soph in HS winning d7 wpials, then ran faster in the 400m as a junior 4th at states in 56.13 and senior again 4th at states in 56.8 in 2013. So her post HS improvement in the 800m is a rollicking 18 seconds! She is out in Oregon now running on the OTC.

@sverige55 Yes, Chanelle. I had a lapse of memory while typing. In that state race, her first lap was crazy fast. I don't remember if it was 58 or below, but I just couldnt believe it was so fast. I looked for her results online over the years but her improvement was slim as you pointed out. There are a number of atheletes who did great in high school, but didn't keep improving or maybe stayed the same in college. Sam Havko had an incredible state meet, winning the 800 and 1600, but not sure he did anything in college. May have dropped out of athletics. There are lots of distractions and pressures in college. I lasted about 2 weeks in swimming in college. Just couldn't get my work done.
