Olympic Trials Hopefuls

I thought the Athlete Developement Program for the Olympic Trials qualifiers was pretty cool. The official lists (Women) (Men) haven't been updated yet.

The Press Release:
Fourteen athletes qualified for the U.S. Olympic Trials in Sunday’s race. In the marathon, five men broke the Olympic A standard by running under 2:20. Another five men qualified by running sub-2:22, the Olympic B standard. Four women qualified by beating the Olympic B standard of 2:47.

Here's what I dug from the results:
"A" Standard
MICHAEL RENEAU 2:17:46 Houlton WI
STEVE MEINELT 2:18:14 Washington DC
MIKE SMITH 2:19:43 Flagstaff AZ
RYAN MEISSEN 2:19:51 Whitewater WI
MATT HOOLEY 2:19:57 Madison WI

"B" Standard
ANDY MARTIN 2:20:16 Los Osos CA
MATTHEW FOLK 2:20:41 Canfield OH
MICHAEL FRIEDBERG 2:21:00 Flagstaff AZ
ROBERT CANNON 2:21:22 Toms River NJ

JENNA BOREN 2:42:39 Saint Paul MN
JUDY JOHNSON 2:44:2 Syracuse NY
CAITLIN TORMEY 2:45:02 New York NY
CARLY GRAYTOCK 2:45:02 Cambridge, MA

I'm not sure whether any of the other elites besides Sean Wade are eligible for the US Olympic Trials.
SEAN WADE 2:20:29

So close to the qualifying standard:
ADAM TRIBBLE 2:22:01 gun time and 2:22:00 chip, but they don't use chip time for OT qualifying! Fayetteville, AR
SAGE CANADAY 2:22:22 a Junior at Cornell (?) Sheridan, OR
MATTHEW ELY 2:22:29 Cambridge MA
Eric Hartmark, Duluth MN 2:23:23
Brendon Moody, Van Wert OH 2:23:44
