St. Joseph Notre Dame senior Kiera Marshall announced her college destination this morning on twitter and she will be attending the University of Washington next fall. Marshall had a terrific cross country season in the fall that including winning the BCL East and North Coast Section and State Division V titles. She qualified for the Footlocker National meet at Balboa Park where she finished in 26th place with a time of 18:09.5. Last Track and Field season, Marshall recorded PRs of 2:23.27, 5:01.85 and 10:41.80. She will look to improve those times this coming season. Best of luck to her at University of Washington.

Cooper Teare and Luis Grijalva finish 1st and 2nd at Davis Stampede Half Marathon

St. Joseph Notre Dame senior Cooper Teare and Armijo senior Luis Grijalva (photo courtesy of Travis Miller and MileSplit), two of the top cross country and track and field runners in the nation stepped away from the track to compete at the Davis Stampede Half Marathon yesterday (Sunday 2/12). Teare was the winner of the race with a time of 1:12:05.5 followed by Grijalva at 1:12:58.3. You can check out official results at this LINK.

For those of you not familiar with half marathons, Teare's time breaks down to 5:30.19 per mile. Grijalva's time breaks down to 5:34.22 per mile.

According to Jack Daniels, the following half marathon times are equivalent to the following:
1:11:56 = 9:45 2 miles and 4:33 mile
1:12:53 = 9:53 2 miles and 4:37 mile

One other interesting note, the Crystal Springs course record holder Mitch Kingery ran a 2:23:47 marathon as a sophomore which is 5:29.27 per mile.

I am fairly certain both Teare and Grijalva ran controlled races as they look ahead to the start of the outdoor track and field season.
