    Josh Parrish has the 7th best time in the field of 25 in the 110m hurdles at 13.82. The best time, by far, is from and Auburn freshman at 13.18. However, in the long jump Josh has the top PB in the field of 18 at 26-0.75. However, that jump seems to be somewhat of an outlier for Josh as his 2nd best jump in 8 meets as a Shocker freshman was 24-11 at the AAC Championships. However, that jump would still be 4th best in the field. So Josh has a chance in the long jump to perhaps finish top 2 with a strong showing.

    Jason Parrish has the 6th best time in the filed of 18 in the 400m hurdles.

    Incoming freshman Bronson Krainak's PB of 215-8 would easily be the best mark on this year's Shockers team (freshman Jordan Rider topped the Shocks this year at 191-0). Bronson has the 4th best throw in the field of 21. With a strong showing he could also be in the hunt for a top 2 finish.

    Bronson's PB would have finished 4th at this year's AAC Championships. Jordan's 191-0 was 6th and sophomore Blake McCormick was 7th at 188-10. So Coach Hetzendorf seems to be rebuilding his javelin squad.

      Did you see the very nice Weights commit we had yesterday? Not the right thread, I know, but thought I would at least bring it deserved attention.

          Just want to thank 1972Shocker for all the work he does throughout the season but especially when it comes to Track and Field and also SubGod22 for starting these related topics.

          I adore T&F but it gets away from me (out of sight out of mind) and you both bringing it to the front is very much appreciated by me at least.

            FYI at the U-20 Championships the men run 39" hurdles instead of 42".

              After 3 jumps Josh is sitting in 3rd after 3 attempts in the long jump with a leap of 24-3.5. If I understand this correctly, the top 8 guys get 3 additional attempts. Josh is in the hunt for a top 2 spot.

              Josh has 2 more jumps left but needs a big one. The top 2 guys are currently at 25-6.75 and 24-10.5.

              Josh nails his 5th attempt soaring 25-0.75 to move into 2nd place. But a guy who had fouled on 3 of his first 5 attempts and was at 24-1.50 cranked out a 25-4.50 to move past Josh into 2nd place with Josh yet to take his final attempt.

              Josh unable to improve on his best mark with his final attempt and finishes in 3rd place with a very good performance. Came up just 4 inches shy of making the 2024 World Athletics U20 Championships national team.

              Heartbreaking for Josh.

                The set up on the javelin the same as for the long jump. The top 8 guys after 3 throws get 3 additional attempts.

                Incoming Shockers Bronson Krainak just does squeeze into the finals sitting 8th after 3 throws with a best sling of 192-4. He is still in the hunt for a top 2 finish but he probably needs to come close to his personal best of 215-8 on one of his final 3 attempts to get that done.

                Bronson improves to 200-10 inches to move up to 4th place after 5 throws but he needs to find another 10 to 15 feet on his final attempt.

                Bronson throwing 1st over the final 3 attempt since was in 8th after the 1st 3 attempts. He gives it a good go improving a little bit to 202-2 but the won't move him up. So he will finish 4th. Heck of an effort for the young man. Looking forward to what he will do as a Shocker.

                The 3 guys who finished ahead of Bronson had marks of 218-11, 209-01 and 207-05.

                Over all 6 throws Bronson was much better and more consistent then the 3rd place finisher with the exception of one big throw on the 1st attempt.

                I guess it's possible Bronson could get another crack at this next year.

                  In the 400m hurdles prelims the top 3 finishers in each of 2 heats,plus the next 3 fastest times advance to the 9-man finals on Thursday evening.

                  Jason Parrish has qualified as one of the next 3 fastest times (6th fastest in the field) with a mark of 52.15 to advance to Thursday's finals. I think he has more left in him.

                    Josh Parrish matched his brother's 400m hurdle prelim performance as he qualified for the 9-man 110m hurlde finals with a new PB time of 13.70 which was the 6th fastest qualifying time.

                    In the 400m hurdle finals Jason Parrish finished in 5th place with a time of 52.35.

                    About and hour and half later Josh finished 8th with a time of 14.37 indicating he must have had an issue arise.

                    In any case I think it was a very representative show by our young Shockers/Shockers-To-Be:

                    M Long Jump – Josh Parrish – 3rd
                    M Javelin – Bronson Krainak – 4th
                    M 400H – Jason Parrish – 5th​
                    M 110H – Josh Parrish – 8th

                    Onward and upward men.

                      Complete forgot about Estes return until you mentioned it. Our Men’s Throws could be very solid.

                          Josh Parrish Named to Team USA for U20 World Championships

                          Wichita State's Josh Parrish was selected to represent the United States in the long jump at the 2024 World Athletics U20 Championships Aug. 29-30 in Lima, Peru.

                          "I am so proud of Josh and extremely happy for him," head track and field coach Steve Rainbolt said. "The opportunity to compete for Team USA will be a wonderful memory for him for a lifetime. This is a fabulous young athlete, and I'm particularly excited about what a positive impact an experience like this will have on him going forward."

                          Parrish, an Olathe, Kan. native, took third in the long jump at the USATF U20 Championships in June and holds a season-best mark of 7.94m/26'0.75". Team USA sends the top two athletes in each event who have hit the qualifying standard to the World U20 Championships, and with the long jump standard set at 7.56m, Parrish was named to the team.​
