SJS shocker as Bella Vista Frosh Kendall Derry beats Karlie Garcia by 7 seconds in CVC opener. Bella Vista puts 7 in top 9 to dominate it's first league meet. This team has tremendous upside with it's depth from 1 to 7.

Dear Chieftain Meet director,

Please put Varsity races first at 9 am when conditions are more ideal.

Why People host the top races at the hottest time of the day when temperatures are rising significantly is beyond me. If varsity races at 9 & 9:30 we will be there next year!

Even as a sophomore, I completely agree that Varsity races should be earlier. It is understandable that some races will be later in the day, but it makes more sense to put the varsity races earlier considering the higher level of competition.

I would say ideal varsity races are early but not too early. Gotta get some sleep especially if you're driving over an hour or so to get to the meet. 10oclock = perfect timing.
I don't think though that it is completely a bad thing to have varsity races later. At some point, everyone will have a pretty late section or state finals race so this just prepares them for it.

Wow- 7th grader Rylee Bowen is overall fastest fem at Viking Opener. A name for the future. More from her 2012 Track season here: http://running.blogs.pressdemocrat.com/3555/rylee-bowen-12-year-old-rincon-valley-runner-outraces-older-girls-for-title/

Go to bed early. No reason to run in 90 degree heat.

Varsity rides the bus with everyone else so its not like they're getting more sleep. Just flip flop varsity and JV so the fastest runners run the earliest time.

If time is a problem move CCS to Monterey or San Francisco. With global warming there is no reason to hold meets meets in the afternoon if you don't have to.

Is Lowell an awfully fast course? I was reading through and some of the times seem to match up to the runners, but other times seem incredibly quick compared to their other performances this year.

Albert Caruana said...

It's fairly flat and only 2.8 miles.

Marty Beene said...

I actually have always found Lowell to be kind of slow, with all of the grass, soft soil, etc. Also, it is advertised as 2.93 miles, not 2.8 (2.13 for the frosh-soph course). One possible reason for "fast" times is that runners may have been running their second or maybe even third race of the season, and there can be a big jump in performance from 1st to 2nd/3rd race.
