2010 North Coast Section Cross --CC-> Country rankings Division III by Peter Brewer


    Defending NCS champion Petaluma appears to be holding all the cards again this year.  The Trojans return 5 of their 7, led by senior Forrest Schaeffer who was 4th last year.  Schaeffer added a 9:38.09 3200 to his credentials during the track season.  Las Lomas brings back 4 of 7 from their 3rd place squad last year.  Their frontrunner is senior Carl Gracely.  Campolindo also returns 4 from last year’s runner-up team.  Senior Dylan Laucher was 8th at MOC last year, and ran a 4:26.4 1600 and 9:39.97 3200.  Piner moves inot the picture, bringing back 4 sophomores(now juniors) from last year’s team, including ace Luis Luna who was 2nd here last year.and 11th at the State Meet. Luis went on to run 9:16.19 for the 3200.  Acalanes has a strong group returning as well, with junior Tyler Sorenson at the front.
    Individually, Luna (Piner) is at the head of the class.  Schaeffer (Petaluma) and Laucher (Campolindo) are also top candidates.  Eureka has the intriguing pair of Nick Kraus and Robin O’Connell who ran 9th and 10th last year.

1.    Petaluma        the purple-clad harriers are favored again.
2.    Las Lomas     can the Knights challenge for the top?
3.    Campolindo    the Cougars are right in the mix.
4.    Piner               just how far can Luna take this young group?
5.    Acalanes        solid pack.
    Eureka              with a quick 1-2 punch, anything can happen.
    Miramonte       the Matadors are never really out of it.


    Campolindo is the clear favorite here.  Not only do they return 6 of 7 from last year, they had a heck of a track season last year.  Junior Carrie Verdon scorched to a 4:56.77/10:42.87 double last year, Grace Orders ran 5:05.58 and 10:44.89, and Sarah Orders, Sara Mostatabi and Brooke Martini added 11:27.53, 11:31.68 and 11:37.48 respectively.  Acalanes is strong as well, with 6 of 7 returning as well.  Sophomore Kellie Berg is the returning frontrunner, while sister Katie ran 2:15.80 in the 800 in the spring.  Bishop O’Dowd also comes back with just about everyone, with junior Maria Diaz and senior Kaitlyn Spees sharing the top honors.  Defending champion Maria Carillo is 2nd only to Campolindo in top returnees, led by sophomore Lauren Kraus who ran 5:12.08 and 11:17.42 in track.  The Pumas drop off a bit after the first three.  Petaluma is poised to make a return trip to the State Meet with a flock of returning sophomores, led by Francsca Honey.   Dougherty Valley is the defending D-IV champion and brings back 1-6, but the air is a bit more rarified in D-III.  Victoria De Metz in their top runner.  Miramonte returns 5 veterans, and is just a step off the ranking consideration.
    Top 10 finishers and State Meet advancers from last year include Verdon and Orders of Campolindo, senior Shelby Nickles of Dublin, Kraus and Heidi Thiele of Maria Carillo, Kellie Berg of Acalanes senior, Courtney Madson of Novato, and Diaz of Bishop O’Dowd. 

1.    Campolindo         the powerhouse.
2.    Acalanes             can the Dons close the gap on Campolindo?
3.    Bishop O’Dowd  the Dragons are solid.
4.    Maria Carillo     can the Pumas shore up the back end?
5.    Petaluma             a good 1-2; can 3-4-5 close the gap?
    Miramonte             lots of strong veterans.
    Dougherty Valley  can they make the jump to D-III?

St. Elizabeth High grad Ashton Purvis named state's Gatorade Girls Track and Field Athlete of the Year

From Contra Costa Times...

Recent St. Elizabeth High graduate Ashton Purvis was named Thursday as the state's Gatorade Girls Track and Field Athlete of the Year.

Purvis was a double champion at the California Interscholastic Federation state championships June 5 at Buchanan High in Clovis. She won the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.17 seconds and the 200 meters in 22.90.
Both marks were then the top times in the nation this season for a high school girl. The 200 mark is still the nation's wind-legal best.
The award, presented in collaboration with ESPN RISE, recognizes athletic excellence along with "high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character demonstrated on and off the track," according to a release from Gatorade.
The Oakland native and University of Miami-bound Purvis now becomes a finalist for Gatorade's National Girls Track and Field Athlete of the Year award.
Also on Thursday, Purvis placed second in the 100 meters of the USA Junior Outdoor Track and Field Championships in Des Moines, Iowa, a meet for athletes 19 and under. She finished in a wind-legal time of 11.39 that was topped only by LSU's Takeia Pinckney (11.30), who was the fourth-place finisher at the NCAA championships earlier this month. Purvis was fifth in the 100 at this meet last year.
Another local star, Trinity Wilson of St. Mary's High, took fourth in the girls 100 hurdles (a wind-legal 13.49), finishing behind three collegiate runners. Wilson will be a junior next school year and was second at the CIF state meet in the event earlier this month. Both Purvis and Wilson competed Thursday for their club team, East Oakland Youth Development Center.

Barefoot running gains a following

By Laura Casey
Contra Costa Times
Updated: 06/21/2010 11:43:08 AM PDT

MAYBE YOU'LL see Michae Legault of Pleasant Hill in shoes on special occasions.
But you certainly won't see him running in shoes.
The former track and cross-country coach has been a barefoot runner for seven years. He runs the Iron Horse Trail barefoot, runs around Concord Community Park barefoot; he even works barefoot.
Legault says running shoes, especially those with a wedge at the heel, are useless, even dangerous. He prefers running feet unshod and, like many across the country, he believes going barefoot is the best way to run.
Legault found this out after years of looking for a flat-foot running shoe and getting a black toenail during a marathon. Two miles before the finish line, he took off his shoes and completed the run.
"I thought 'This rocks' and stopped looking for my flat shoe," the 50-year-old contractor says.

History of Division break downs. - 2009

Courtesy of, Hank Lawson, Ernie Lee (Gunns HS) and Walt VanZant (Wilcox HS).

Some people have asked about how the divisions are determined so here are a couple of explanations by Ernie and Walt.

Here's a chronology of how the divisions for the State meet have been determined 
(as far as I recall, my memory may be suspect on some details):

1. At the beginning, the divisions were split on a statewide level. That is, 
all sections had the same enrollment cut-offs (with all SF, O, and LA schools 
in the largest schools division). Pretty soon, however, there were large 
disparities within sections where sections like the CCS would have a large 
imbalance in terms of the number of schools in each division. This led to....

2. Allowing schools to "opt up" in division. That is, a school could move up 
into a larger schools division as long as it did so by a certain date (sometime 
in October). The thought would be that the best schools would move into Division 1. 
But what ended up happening (particularly in the CCS where the top schools were 
generally not the largest schools) was that schools would cherry-pick divisions 
to try to win CCS or qualify for the state meet. This seemed to hurt competition 
within a section, so that led to....

3. The CIF banned "opting up", but allowed each section to determine the enrollment 
cut-offs between divisions within a range. This was very good in maintaining competitive 
balance within each section. However, as the disparity of school sizes between sections 
continued to grow, the ranges started to limit the sections. In particular, Division 1 
in the SS started becoming much bigger than the other divisions. Which led us to...

4. The current set-up, where each section could pretty much align the divisions however 
they want (with the exception of "protecting" the smallest division).

Coach Ibarra commented above about the State meet being the meet that mattered most. 
Whether you agree or not, note that ALL of the changes in the past have been geared 
towards improving competitive balance at the individual section level.

Gunn Cross Country.

There has been extensive coverage of the CCS cross country division splits in recent 
days. So, I thought that I would provide background information that I received when 
attending the 2008 post-season cross-country sports committee meeting. Although some 
(and maybe many) might disagree with the decision of the committee that recommended 
the present division split system, the committee members had knowledgeable and 
experienced individuals who carefully considered the subject when making their decision.

In May of 2008 the CIF Federated Council decided to allow the individual sections to 
determine placement of their schools for volleyball, basketball, and cross country.

The Executive Committee of the CCS unanimously supported the CCS president’s 
recommendation to from a “Blue Ribbon” Committee to research and suggest various 
methods of splitting the divisions in the CCS for the three sports in issue. 
Assistant Commissioner Steve Filios was put in charge of this committee. Ten members 
were placed on the committee, including –

John Detar of Thomas More   Doc Scheppler of Pinewood
Jeff Lamb of Milpitas       Stu Waters of Soquel
Chris Hansen of Leland      Kevin Donohue of Serra
Bill Daskarolis of Aragon   Roger O’Sullivan of NMC
Terry Ward of Bellarmine    Rich Young of Serra

The Committee considered the following items –

1. Review of current system.
2. What are other sections doing?
3. How does our section membership compare with other CIF sections?
4. What is best for our section considering our membership?
5. What proposals might accomplish our section philosophy while
maintaining competitive equity in State competitions.

The Committee spent a considerable amount of time reviewing information in order to come 
up with a philosophy when determining how to split its divisions. The philosophy was as follows:

1. All division championships in the CCS are important and valid.
2. Altering the division placement to insure success in a state championship or to insure 
that the strongest teams/programs are grouped into a single division are not a primary 
3. Division placement should be based on fairness and equity for all member schools 
eligible for post-season play.

The original proposal was to split all five divisions equally. This proposal was presented 
to the volleyball, basketball, and cross country sports committees, the Athletic Directors, 
the League Commissioners, and the Executive Committee of the CCS for their comments.

The final decision was to split divisions 1 through 4 evenly and all schools with enrollment 
of 500 or less would be placed in division 5.

Latest Northern California distance star...

This past Saturday at the Golden West Invitational, a result that may have been missed by most is the following.

4    Carroll, Clare                     8      Cavitt Jr. Hs               5:08.59

That's right, an 8th grader running with the big girls and finishing a competitive 4th.  So who is this latest phenom?  After doing a little research, I found the following article.  You can read all about Clare Carroll (she is the one on the right) at the following link:

100th Dipsea Race

Yesterday's historic 100th running of the Dipsea race gave us a record breaker as 8 year old Reilly Johnson (pictured to the left courtesy of the Dipsea official site- won her first individual title as well as the coveted black shirt.  

You can find preliminary results of the race at the following link:

You can find lots of familiar names in the results including current high school runners as well as their parents.

The top high school runner was John Lawson of Drake who finished 9th overall.  The top high school girl was Jacque Taylor of Casa Grande who finished 31st overall.

Tactics at Championship Races by SHC coach Andy Chan...

The tactics at championship distance races are often very different from the tactics you will see at a non-championship race. At championship races the goal is to win the race. The time is secondary. 

It is rare that you see someone lead a distance championship race from the very beginning and they stay in front to win the race. This usually happens only when the person leading is far superior to all the others in the field. 

A common championship race strategy is to let someone else lead and to try to kick by them for the win late in the race (this tactic is known as “sit and kick”). The faster your kick, the more this strategy will work for you. However, the problem with this tactic is that as the level of competition goes up, everyone thinks they have the best kick. If you watch the NCAA men’s 800 final on Friday, June 11 (5:40 P.M. west coast time with free streaming video from CBS Sports and NCAA TV) look for Oregon’s Andrew Wheating and Virginia’s Robby Andrews. Both have outstanding kicks so I expect you will see both sit back early in the race and then there will be a big kick at the finish. Wheating himself said, “it’s definitely going to be a case of who’s got the mightier kick.” 

To read the rest of Andy's post on his blog, go to the following link:

Catching up with Jesuit HS sprinter/hurdler, R.J. Frasier...

Today we chat with R.J. Frasier of Jesuit HS who helped his school win the team crown at the recently completed California State Track and Field meet.  Along with teammates in the high jump, shot put and discus, RJ finished in 5th place in the 100 and recorded one of the Northern CA victories as he dominated the 300m. Hurdles.  R.J. (pictures to the left by Carl Costas of the Sac Bee in an article linked below) will be headed down south next year as he turns his full attention to Track and Field.

1. What sports have you participated in since you first started competing?

Wrestling, football, baseball, basketball and track and field. I started focusing on football and track during my sophomore year of high school.

2. How did you get involved in track and field?
I saw some kids running around the track and I asked my Dad if I could do that and the rest is history.
3. What were some of your earlier successes in the sport?
When I was young i was 4th in the nation in the long jump,

4. What were some of your accomplishments last year as a junior?
 Last year as a Jr, I took 5th in the state in the 300 hurdles and I anchored the 400m. relay to 4th place.

5. Going into this season, what were some of your goals?
My goal was to win state in as many events as possible.

6. Tell us a little about your coach and what he has meant to you in terms of helping you with your events.
My coach (Rod Jett) helped a lot because he is a hurdler and knows what makes people better. We watched film together and he pointed out all of my flaws.

7. Since you do multiple events, what does a typical week look like for you in terms of your training?
My week is usually very hard.  At the time, it can be frustrating because I do a little something for each event on different days but I have to pick one to focus more on

8. What are some of your toughest workouts that you did this past season?
The toughest workouts have been doing hurdles back in fourth which is llike running 25 hurdles in a set. Doing that 5 times and running repeat 300 efforts have been hard as well.

9. Jesuit HS was the boys' team champions at the CA State meet this past weekend. When did you and your teammates realize that your team has a shot at winning the team title?
We knew that we had a shot the whole season but it didnt really dawn on us until we got close to the state meet how close we were, and how serious it is.

10. Tell us a little about each of your races and what you will remember the most about this past weekend.
My 100 I just ran but did not run as fast as I would have liked to. My 300 hurdles was one of passion and determination, I knew that we needed 10 points to lock away the team tittle. The race was not very good technically but I was happy getting the win.

11. What college will you be attending next year and how did you end up deciding to go to that college?
I will be going to UCLA and while they were recruiting me i really liked their plans for the program and how serious they were about winning. The campus is absolutely beautiful and it is the number 2 public University in the nation.

12. What is your advice for younger athletes who have aspirations of reaching the level you reached this past season?
All I can say is stay hungry but most importantly stay humble and be grateful for all the success that will come your way

Thank you very much R.J. for your time!  AJC

Real Time State Track and Field Results...

Jesuit's R.J. Frasier seeks state track gold

The CIF State Track & Field Championships are littered with the ruined reputations of area high school sprinters unable to keep pace with their Southern California counterparts.

Jesuit's R.J. Frasier just might be the exception. The senior ranks among the favorites in the 300-meter intermediate hurdles and the glamorous 100-meter dash at this week's meet in Clovis.

Frasier was 3 the last time a local runner, Jim McGee of Sacramento High School in 1996, won the 100 in the state finals. There has never been an area champion in the 300 hurdles, an event in which Frasier placed fifth at last season's finals.
