Another awesome weather day! 42 degrees and misty rain! (36 and snow for this coming Saturday! Yay!) First meet back after break, along with the conditions, resulted in another ho-hum day performance-wise. Shamere Dunswell’s 100M along with Christian McCarry’s 110HH were really the only bright spots as they were close to their PRs. Everyone else… Read More

With spring break depleting both squads (they brought 12, we were missing 50+), it was a chance to see where we need work. And boy, do we need work. Bright spots included the 1600 meters which saw Matt Maiale and Ben Hoyer pace nice early season times of 4:33.7 and 4:34.8. Rahsheed Wright rode the… Read More

Throughout the season, when not working on his jumping events, Ahmir Johnson has been running the sprint work-outs with Rahsheed Wright and usually keeping up. That had me thinking ahead to the Penn Relays 4×4 where we put our four best athletes in regardless of their specialty. (Sprinter, hurdler, jumper, distance guy….whom ever gives us… Read More

Another D1/D2 combo-meet saw the distance squad improve a bit. Relay running can oftentimes bring out the important emotional aspect of high school track and field. Rather than just doing it (or not) for you, you’re doing it for the three other guys. With another thinned out squad due to vacations (and a couple of… Read More

This week, the opportunity arose for Matt¬†Maiale to go against American Conference XC Champ Jason Cornelison and possibly exact some revenge. Sticking to his pacing through the early laps and sitting in mid-pack, he slowly moved up and onto Jason’s shoulder with 2 to go. Cornelison accelerated noticably trying to shake our guy but everytime… Read More

This weekend (and next), D1 and D2 were run together but scored separately figuring some teams would be short handed while some would take off completely for the holidays. The competition didn’t seem to matter to Ahmir as he scored two more wins and hasn’t yet contested his best event, the triple jump. In his… Read More
