Do you know if St. Ignatius girls will move back to DII?

Yes, according to the cbeds on the CCS website and released at the coaches meeting at the end of year evaluation.

Is there any particular reason State Meet is so late this year? (Or is this not a late date)

State is always the Saturday after thanksgiving.

I wish it was the Saturday before thanksgiving. I know they say it is due to travel but every person I know complains about it on this weekend due to the holidays. I think it is a bogus excuse, otherwise State track is on Memorial Day weekend, state basketball is during spring break, spring football is the weekend of Christmas.

I think it would be extremely beneficial for coaches, and athletes to have the meet moved to the week BEFORE Thanksgiving. It disrupts too many plans for families and athletes to have it Thanksgiving weekend.

We coach enough and travel enough on weekends anyways at least give the athletes this national holiday weekend to spend with friends and family.

Also hotels are hard to find if you don't book early. I book 6 months in advance just to make sure I have good adequate housing for my teams/athletes.

I have had athletes fly in Sat. morning. Others miss the meet because they are visiting family in England, the list goes on and on!

If you move the State Meet then it changes everything in the State schedulewise because everything will have to be moved back 1 week. Every big invitational is scheduled for a certain date such as 3rd Saturday in October. The one advantage is CCS won't have that stupid 2 week break between Finals and State.

Meets change dates all the time. That is not a problem at all.

I don't try to dislike track as a sport, and do enjoy parts of it - Ashton Eaton really is an amazing athlete. Cross Country is just more fun/more team oriented and the meets are shorter!!!

Bring it on - 2013 will be great.

Can someone tell me about the Scott Bhah's race course in Pleasenton?

Coach Ozzie said...

The Scott Bauhs Meet is held at Shadow Cliffs Regional Park. It has been measured anywhere between 2.95 and 3 miles, but it is probably about 2.99 miles in reality. It starts and ends on a grass field, but most of the race is on packed dirt trails. There are a few moderate hills throughout the course, but no major climbs. The longest climb comes about 1.25 miles into the race where you hit an extended gradual climb, which then becomes steep at the end. The last 3/4 of a mile is flat or downhill, with much of it on a straight, flat path so athletes can see who they are chasing. The course times seem to fluctuate more than the average course with changes in temperature. I can't really explain that, but just making an observation based on different meets. If it is warm it tends to run much slower than when it is cool. Hopefully this answers your questions. If not, feel free to email me at trackcoachozzie@gmail.com
