Bobby Curtis finished 6th in the USATF championship 10,000m (28:40.60) tonight in Sacramento. Kentucky's future stars have some big shoes to fill, but I think it would be awesome if they could follow his lead.

Oh ya, and Matt Hillenbrand qualifies 4th for the 1500m final in 3:42.72. Pretty dang awesome.

@jscott Bobby ran a great race too. He trailed the field early out, got separated from most of the field, but then fought his way back to 6th. It was an excellent lesson on the importance of maintaining contact during a race. Matt did a great job as well, sitting for most of the race in the front of what I'd call the Heat of Death, which included Will Leer, a pair of Olympians and I'm thinking last year's 3rd place finisher (Matt Elliott). The final should be exciting.
