Yep, they suck.

When you can't even get in the top 5 on day 1 (8 pts) and the leader has 47, there's room to improve. Same with the men; though they have less 1st day events to tally.

We have no one in pole vault (IOW - no chance for points at all) and just 1 (in a field of 22) in the high jump.

My remark was at the end of Day 1 and I stand by that assessment of Day 1. One team got 47 points so, yes, someone is recruiting to field events well and it's not us. Maybe it's because I find T&F as one of our bright spots and I'd love to see them just blow away the competition from the get go.

I wouldn't recruit single-event athletes, either, especially pole vaulters. Too much risk for too little reward.

I think the new staff is striving for a team with athletes who can score points in multiple events. Shot/discus/hammer are good combos, but javelin is more specialized and has no indoor equivalent.
