I think the most fair solution is probably some middle ground between just using number of athletes and just using number of schools. Track and Field is both an individual and a team sport. If we...

I also wish they would be a little more honest about the number of teams participating. The arbitrary "9 athletes at district to constitute a team" rule significantly reduces the number of teams. If...

I ran on it only once, in college. But I saw several HS meets there. Sad to see it not used for an XC races.

Track on Grass?

How much different are XC courses now than back in the day? That question was rolling through my head on a drive this weekend. It started rolling around there because of the discussion about the BG...

Rohbino, this is very much on point. In my view, as a former soccer and basketball coach, is that our focus on winning leads to the creation of leagues/associations/tournaments where there are super...

I believe we have had 29 different athletes run on the NT course. Some of them more than once. One of them four times. Several of them have been on the podium, we have also had the last finisher. We...

ENA2, I think your point #1 is important. I have found that our kids like the course. No doubt they like it because it is the state meet. It is interesting to me that we had five boys and four girls...

The cutting of men's sports teams is largely a matter of losing money on football, and to a lesser extent basketball. Those sports are more expensive, even after considering revenues, than any other...

Yes it will. For boys: Brian Hesson I believe went 8,1,1,1 in D3 from 1989-1992. JJ White went 16, 2, 1, 1 in D1 over the same time period. Probably the best boys performer Zach Wills I think was 4th...

This is absolutely true. Their aerobic development really needs to be a years long process. Maybe a better way to frame this is that it takes longer to effect measurable changes in maximum speed. I...

Basically, they need to do some central nervous system training that an 800/1600 runner doesnít need and not as much VO2 max. Short repeats (stuff in the 10-50 meter range) at full speed with full...

I have never seen the ticket line be longer than a couple of minutes. They can sell the tickets faster than they can park the cars.

Last year we we pulled in to NTR at about 11:15. So we hit the...

We have always travelled that 161 to 37 to 40 route through Granville. Last year it was backed up for the last mile and that last mile took us about 45 minutes.

I agree. That class they got in 2014 was a good class. They haven't been able to match it. Coaching continuity is the number one thing they need. They don't have a ton of scholarship money to give...

I am all for making the course good for the runners. Even if it sometimes makes it more challenging for me as a coach.
