Stanford Invitational newspaper coverage...

Not sure where to put this but performance of the week in my book goes to freshman standout Grace Ling from Lynbrook. She ran the 1600 & 3200 in their dual vs. Saratoga, then runs the 3k and DMR at Stanford, then came back and won the frosh-soph girls 3200 at Quicksilver Inv.

OK - if you go and mention a Viking I HAVE to pipe in. Grace is #2 Lynbrook Frosh in the 3000, #3 in the 3200, #8 in the 1600 and the DMR team she was on is #5 all-time Lynbrook AND she was one tired puppy at the end of it all. :)

That was all done Thursday, Friday, Saturday by the way. That girl is one tough cookie and going to be awesome!

Even more impressive in today's age when it seems like coaches are afraid to race. Back in the day people raced all the time and it was the golden era of USA distance runnIng. I think freshman need to race, and race often. If nothing else to teach kids how to be competitive and the love of racing rather than the love of racing a workout.

I applaud this young lady for an amazing work ethic. Too often kids come up to me in the middle of a dual meet asking not to run their next event because they are tired. She took it head on!

Frosh/Soph athlete of the week hands down. How about an interview Albert?

I stuck around to watch the night distance portion of the Stanford Invitational and Isaac Chavez of Chico ran a very impressive race. That was a big time effort for him.
