Hi guys! I was wondering what times I would need to run in the 1600m and 800m to get looked at for a scholarship. As a freshman I tried out for the golf team only to get cut lol; I decided to join distance track 3 weeks late just to do a spring sport. I had never been a distance runner, but always athletic. I got my 800 time down to a 2:08 and never ran a timed 1600m. As a sophomore I joined cross country and got my 5k down to a 17:22. This past season of track as a sophomore I ran a 4:35 mile and a 2:02 800m. I have never trained in the summer but this summer I decided to and put in some serious miles. My 5k time is already down to a 16:35! This winter I am also going to train and am considering quitting basketball for this reason. I am looking to run a 1:57/1:56 this year in track. Would the coaches consider that I have shown steady improvement and am still a fairly new distance runner with a lot of upside? Also I am 6'2 and weigh 150 pounds. Grades are not a problem, ranked 3/606 in my class and also have a couple non athletic leadership positions.
