Bellarmine DMR team wins at Penn Relays with a time of 10:06.10

I will get all the splits from their coach unless he wants to post them in the comment section below. It was reported that junior Alex Scales ran 4:09.45 to anchor the team and move them from 6th to 1st.

More to come...

Sacramento Meet of Champions preview

Aside from the obvious high interest the sub 4 minute mile attempt by Cooper Teare tomorrow, what other events will be ones to watch at tomorrow's Sacramento Meet of Champions?

Listen up, coaches: Watch out for hidden recording devices

As if coach's jobs are not difficult enough, here is a new wrinkle that you should be wary of when addressing your teams.

Can you predict Cooper Teare's time at Sacramento Meet of Champions?

St. Joseph Notre Dame senior Cooper Teare (Ben Crawford photo on the left) will be making his 2nd sub 4 attempt this Saturday at the Sacramento Meet of Champions. His first attempt at the world famous Mt. SAC Relays resulted in a mighty close 4:00.16 effort.

Now it's your turn to predict his final time on Saturday. Will he dip under 4? If so, what will his time be? The person who gets the winning time or the closest will get... ideas for winning entry? A guest post?

2017 Stanford XC Meet Cancelled-more from Stanford SID

April 25, 2017


Meet will return in 2018

STANFORD, Calif. – The 2017 Stanford Cross Country Invitational has been canceled because of a scheduling conflict, but will return in 2018.

The meet, which includes college and high school divisions, is among the largest in Northern California, with 14 races and more than 3,000 runners. The meet annually is scheduled on a Saturday in late September or early October. This year, it was October 1.

The target date for 2017 was September 30. However, that is the same date as Stanford’s home football game against Arizona State. Because of the demands on Stanford operations staff and local law enforcement, there was not enough manpower available for two large campus sporting events on a football gameday.

Because students make up a large portion of the meet workforce, the September 23 date was not available because classes have yet to start. And October 7 was not workable because of the spacing of Stanford’s cross country schedule.

The meet has been held annually since 1974.

2017 Stanford Cross Country Invitational cancelled

Just received this email from Jess Riden, Director of Operations...
Unfortunately – due to a scheduling conflict with Stanford football on Saturday, September 30, 2017 – we will be unable to host the meet this fall.

As we certainly enjoy having you all on campus, and are proud to host such a great competition - we plan to pick back up and running as normal in 2018.

We apologize for any issues this causes, and hope you will be back for 2018!

Thanks!  And please let me know if you have any questions!
