    If you look at their 4x400m for OUAs on paper that team should have qualified even though it wasn't close to an A team. No idea if that is who ran but their 300m guys didn't have a good year, Bellemore seems to have lost a bit of speed compared to years past and Ullman seems to be constantly battling injuries. McMackin and a couple of their other mid-d guys don't seem to have the speed to move down like Bellemore and Ullman to paper over the cracks.

    I think this is mostly an indictment of Windsor's ability to recruit 400m types since the days of Brendan Dills, Chris Reid, Travis Nightingale, and others. They don't seem to have the depth there that they used to. Back then it seemed when one was hurt/held out of a race or not performing, it was next man up and they had several guys like Eldridge, Tome, Cavedo, Kelly, A-Nelson, Drennan, etc capable of running 49.x on command. They really seem to have moved to a stars and scrubs focus - or the OUA and CIS generally has given them a lot more competition for the 50.5 guy coming out of high school than they used to.

    Looking at this past season, their best freshman ran 36 high whereas Guelph had a bunch of guys come in and run sub 36.5 as freshman. For whatever reason the pipeline has dried up a bit. I think this also holds true for other event groups at Windsor... no multis or jumpers at all qualified and no freshman to write home about in any field group. Really outside of the distance team they haven't been able to recruit much of note since 2014. It could be a scary couple years when Bellemore and Ullman are gone (in terms of their usual 1-2 finish).

    Before it was basically an afterthought for them to qualify with their B or C team and this year that finally seems to have let them down

    48.5 after running 3 events is losing a bit of speed compared to previous years? Interesting! You seem to know a thing or two about Windsor..

    It is a shame to see that Mount Allison University isn't sending the AUS champion shot putter even though she would have been ranked 4th going in to nationals...

    You aren't looking close enough if you say the bottom of each field, as their are a few events where the AUS has athletes in the top ranks

    Did you think to look at the USport site to answer that question?

    In track and field they are still in USports. However at least one of their teams (women's hockey) competes in the NCAA DII league.

    OUA rules state an athlete has to have a mark in their event previous to the conference championships. Not sure if that same rule is followed by the AUS, but she is un-ranked previous to the AUS championships (at least on trackie). She must have competed represented by Mount Allison (can't be a club member or unattached). It is sad as it is a very far throw that ranks her just outside a national medal, however it may not be because the university isn't sending her. Could be a technicality.

    Mount Allison does not actually have a funded track & field program. I'm assuming she trains with a club team and just got permission to compete for Mount Allison at the AUS Championships. She didn't even have a Mount Allison singlet. I wouldn't be surprised if she had to pay for all of her expenses just to compete at AUS. If that's the case, it would be a lot of money out of pocket to go all the way to Edmonton...

    I understand that there was an eligibility issue with the Mt A thrower. The start lists had asterisks for the women's 60m and shot saying the list could change depending on the outcome come of eligibility.

    Not aware of any such rule, but it is definitely possible. Rule doesn't make complete sense, but I can understand the reasoning behind it. Tough break for her if that is the case.
