    Is there a list of fastest XC times ever recorded for OH runners?

    Paige is the perfect example of stringing together consistent off season training. Each off season she did a little more, building off the previous season and it’s off season. This fall she has seen a large drop from the almost 2 years of training year round. I saw the same progression from...

    NFHS Rule 8-1-3b Cross-Country Course Layout

    False Starts

    On the subject of the technology. Deciding a race to the 1/1000th of a second and because it is FAT it is suppose to be indisputable. The FAT official is still making a judgment and that at the distance of 1/1000th of a second.

    Team Scores During the Meet

    Over my long career as a coach that has always been one of my pet peeves at meets was the lack on announcing team scores through out the meet.

    Brady Yingst runs 4:09.20

    This meet was FAT. This was an impressive effort. Second place was 4:37. Yingst was the D3 cross-country champ last fall and was runner-up in the 1600 last spring at the state track championships. He broke Sam Borchers of Yellow Springs record set in 2007. Lancermania, would you know what this...

    How are lane assignments determined for distance races at the state meet?

    Interesting comment about preferred lanes being more about officials than athletes. Makes me wonder what the preferred lane order should be. I know it would vary by athlete and event if they were asked which lane they would prefer.
