That's pretty good for a Freshman though. I had tried out for Freshman BBall only to be told by the coach being 5'2" or 5'3" at the time was too short (he showed me I was the very last cut too). So I then decided to run indoor track, since it was a sport. I had no clue about anything in track so my times were not real good. Sophomore year, I got back into it and ran a 59-60 400, followed by a 57 400 last year.
I am not going to run in college though (never wanted to), but a lot of my team is. So I have a feeling they are trying a bit harder to get real good times to impress schools than I am. I also didn't really work out running wise before the season started, so that is showing a bit now too (it takes me a few weeks to get back into 100% running shape).
Yeah 61 is pretty good but we have a sophmore who last year as a freshman ran about 55-56 and a senior who last year broke the school record as a junior with a 49 something. I wasn't in very good running shape last year though, I'm hoping to get a 56-57 range this year. My 200 and 100 aren't very good though, I don't have a lot of pure speed, but I can go at a pace just under a sprint for 400 meters.
Yeah, our school is pretty good too I think. My coach said our school is better than 75% of the colleges. We have some sprinters and a couple distance guys that can run 50, 51, 52. A few more guys can run 54-55. Then, the rest of us (excluding Freshmen who started like me) will generally run under 60-62.
I can't run a 100, only run the 200 when needed, but I usually run 400 meters (spring and relays) or 600 meters (winter, where I got like 1:38, which is my personal best so far).

In track, even the slighest twinge, especially in something as integral as the hamstrings, can decide a meet...especially since they are decided by mere seconds.

Things ended up going surprisingly smooth.
I saw the coach before practice, who was in a good mood today for some reason. He said he was wondering where my "off" times came from and I explained to him the hamstrings strain and that I did not mention it to him at the meet.
I have a feeling he knew I was a little hurt, since he didn't really show any surprised/curious reaction - it was like he knew it lol. Anyway, he said to lay off it today and see the trainer.
The trainer's diagnosis? It's a strain on both hammys, but it's not real serious. I just need to ice several times a day (I was doing it once a day for two days) and run lightly for the next two days, before returning to normal 100% on Thursday.
