    Riley has now entered his name for the USA T&F Championships. He has the best throw so far of everyone entering the meet. I believe it was one of his throws from last August.

    I don't know whether Riley (Maddie, other former Bison) have been in any meets this year (or are even training). There is not a good place to go to find out what they are doing. The performances of world class athletes are often tracked pretty well on iaaf.org, but the very good who are on the cusp but not world class (say Top 100 in the world) - it is tough to find information on them.

    Riley has been throwing/competing this year. First meet was Drake Relays.

    Here is how he has been doing. It looks like he is ready for the USA Championships. (from iaaf.org)

    20 JUN 2019 Harry Jerome Track Classic, Burnaby Canada 78.59
    30 JUN 2019 American JavFest, East Stroudsburg, PA 79.28

    His best in 2017 was 75.10
    His best in 2016 was 80.42

    She had a very good indoor season (three races only, but set personal bests (PB) at both 800m and 1000m). I don't believe she has run a single race outdoors yet. Good article/interview with her a few months ago. She said she has been battling injuries since graduating from Oregon - said during the indoor season she was finally running pain free again. I wonder if she did not get re-injured, if this is the reason for no outdoor races so far - I don't know, just wondering. In any case, glad to see she will be at the Championships. Be nice if she can get healthy and back in form. She's got a race or two well below her present PB in the 800m - if it can all come together.
    One week from the U.S. Championships and per iaaf.org and her agency, neither show that Laura Roesler has run a race since her terrific indoor season. Suggests to me she is injured again. If this is so, and after a couple years of one injury after another, it is long past the time to get a new coach and a new trainer. Something not right here. Injuries are not entirely preventable, but with proper stretching, proper pre-workout drills, right kinds of strength training, right kinds of warm-down, they can be minimized. This apparently ain't happening with Laura.
