Robinson's performance was a second off her PR of 5:02, and was 21st in the state of California for the 1600. Cooper was 13th in the state with a time .48 seconds off the last qualifier, in her first season competing in the 300 hurdles. I would hardly call either of those performances a nightmare.
Amazing job by Gradiska, though. Second in the state!
