Yes/No: Seven New Records at the Elite Meet?

The Hamline Elite Meet kicks off tomorrow and its Friday night session will pit Minnesota's best track and field athletes against one-another. The format is simple: any high school athlete can be entered in the meet but only the very best are accepted -- setting the stage for a fast-paced, highly-competitive meet.

13.1 Mpls

It should be no surprise that many of the best high school athletes from the last four years are on the Elite Meet record board, including Alicia Rue, Jordan Helgren, Zach Mellon and Brock Spandl.

We would like to know how many records will be broken this year...

Y/N: Will seven or more records be tied or broken at the Hamline Elite Meet on Friday night?

There are eight athletes who have eight seed times/distances that are faster/further than meet records. They include Analisa Huschle in the long jump, Erica Dombro in the 400, Hannah Schonhardt in the high jump, Kim Hovey in the shot put, Maggie Ewen in the discus, Jerome Begin in the 300 hurdles, Macauley Spandl in the pole vault and Trevor Yedoni in the high jump.

In 2009, there were seven meet records tied or broken.

To play our game, simply type "yes" or "no" into the subject line of an e-mail and send it to us at DtBFantasy [AT] gmail [DOT] com before 5:30 P.M. CST, Friday, April 23rd. Please put your answer in the subject line of the e-mail and make sure your full name appears somewhere in the e-mail. We will continue to offer a bonus for participants making their debut in Yes/No - a correct answer will be worth two points for any first-time players.

My answer: Yes

The question from last week was: Will Jason Lehmkuhle or Antonio Vega run faster than 2:14:00 at the Boston Marathon on Monday? The answer was an emphatic yes - both athletes ran personal bests and broke 2:14. Twenty three contestants answered correctly and there is now a seven-way tie for second place behind leader Toby Hatlevig.

For all the results, please visit DtBFantasy Corner.

Good luck and thanks for playing Yes/No on DtB!
