Clemson, SC. (Jan. 28, 2006) –The Clemson High School Invitational brought over 1,000 athletes to the University of Clemson’s beautiful new indoor track and field complex to compete this past weekend. Athletes from Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Florida, and Tennessee were all in attendance to witness an absolutely fabulous performance by many of the southeast region’s best track and field athletes.
Bradford senior Erin Hannon had been running, jumping and training for this day for years. But it wasn\'t until this season that she decided to give a multi-event a try. After all, with indoor, it\'s the Pentathlon, which conveniently offers three of her events, the High Jump, Long Jump and Hurdles. All she would have to do is to get some proficiency in the Shot Put and convince her body that the 800 was just a fun way to finish a meet. If she could do that, she\'d be good. But never in her wildest dreams did she think she would win.
After putting up a fight of whether or not I really had to do it, he decided he would try pumping iron into my right arm..as soon as the needle went in, I started crying like a little girl!
Northwestern alumna Angelina Blackmon, now a sophomore at N.C. State captured the 800-meter title, running unattached, in 2:15.13.

MileStat.com was able to get on-site meet interviews with three national leading caliber athletes in Georgetown Prep\'s Steve Duplinsky (US#1 3200), Northside\'s Catherine White (US#1 3200), and Bethel\'s Francena McCorory (US#1 all-time 300).
During the 10k on the track, sometimes I chant to myself in my head.
The meet director was unable to salvage the Nashville Track Classic. From my understanding there was just not enough entries to justify having the meet. I was told they will try to host the meet again in a year or so.
Under new meet management this year, the Virginia Tech Invitational looks to be yet another showcase of state\'s top athletes and relays as they get the opportunity to compete on not only the fastest indoor track in the state, but as well as one of the best in the nation. Southern Track Classic meet director Dan Ward takes over the reigns this year as former meet director Howard Nippert moved on to a position at Fork Union from Virginia Tech. The goal was to limit the meet to 90 teams and 1800 athletes, but with a meet of this caliber it is hard to say no to the many desperate teams, coaches, and athletes wishing to gain entry. Outside all of the hoopla and controversy that has surrounded the hosting of this year\'s meet, one can be guaranteed to see the best performances thus far this season the next two days at Rector Fieldhouse\'s 200 meter banked indoor track facility in Blacksburg, Virginia.
Coghlan leads field for 99th Millrose Games High School Mile - complete entrants lists...
Please note that quite a few teams entered more than one athlete illegally (did not meet standard for 2 athletes). These excess entries were scratched and due to the number of teams, the teams were not notified, so they should check the performance list carefully. Also there is a limit of 3 events including relays for each individual. Performance list is not final - still working out a few kinks.Updated as of 1/26 3:53 PM
Here is a list of all high schools in Tennessee with a track or cross country team. Please use these team abbreviations and names in conducting your meets with Hytek. This will help to make data transfer and exchange much easier this year and in the future.

She has speed, strength, and stamina. That makes Liz Costello a sprinter. No... probably more of a middle distance runner. Nah, that\'s not entirely accurate either. Maybe she\'s a distance runner. (Photo by MaroonNews, Ridgewood, NJ)
Most of her competitors obsess and strive to cut that extra second off their time, to get that record or state title. Not Williams, although she\'s one of the state\'s best distance runners, she just wants to have a good time.
I am counting down the days until our training camp in Portugal!
For Southerners, the thought of running fast indoors doesn\'t hold the same value as it does for our contemporaries up North. But every year around this time, a cadre of Florida preps run indoor meets in what seems like a never ending left hand turn.
Then these Euros like putting huge logs in the middle of the course.

From the reports that I have received TSSAA has decided to make the 2006 cross-country state meet a 5k race, like the coaches association has been working on for two years now. The wording I have gotten is local races can be three mile or 5k, but the state meet is 5K.
A big Friday night for TSTCA #3 @ Slippery Rock for the boys 3000 and the girls Shot Put... Ellwood City\'s Jake Walker goes 8:42.9, which is US#1 in the 3000, while Center\'s Allyn Laughlin takes over US#3 and PA#1 with a throw of 45-07. On 1/21 at Kent State OH, Bradford\'s Erin Hannon moved into a three-way tie for US#1 in the High Jump, clearing 5-08. She also went 8.73 for 55H, 17-08 LJ, and 37-05.50 TJ. Conestoga\'s Liz Costello, coming off a storybook XC season, continued the journey of a dream senior season with a 4:56.09 Mile win at the New Balance Games in New York at the Armory. She and Katie Doswell of Virginia separated at 800 meters, and with 200 to go, Costello broke open the race. Her final 800 split was 2:22 according to coach Ryan Comstock. The Simon Gratz boys improved their PA#1, US#3 4x400 to 3:21.19 winning the event. Penncrest sophomore Karen Shump traveled to the University of North Carolina, and came away with a 3rd place Shot Put of 43-01 at the Eastern Challenge. At Kutztown, Easton\'s Chanelle Price was an easy winner in the 800, running 2:16.11. (photo by Don Rich). Also at Kutztown, E&S\'s Trevon Rainford and Cumberland Valley\'s Curtis Bixler both broke 8:58 in the 3000, with Rain ford takin g the final sprint.
As only a sophomore at James River High School, Kristen Wolfe has quickly established herself in a short time as one of the state\'s top distance runners. The defending Group AAA state champion in the 1000 meter run, Wolfe has qualified for state meet competition in all four chances and earned All-State honors during each trip to the top state stage. If she continues on the pace she has set for herself throughout her high school career, she could end up with even greater honors when she graduates over two years from now.

NCAA policy concerning athlete travel reimbursement. Answers to a number of questions about athlete travel reimbursement for national meets, and that of parents and coaches. PDF of the NCAA policy concerning athlete travel reimbursement
There have been numerous questions concerning travel expense reimbursement to National level high school meets for athletes, coaches and parents. Please refer to the NCAA policy concerning this. In short, providing travel expenses to parents and/or coaches is not permitted unless all parents and coaches of all athletes in a meet are reimbursed. (This does not apply to the athletes themselves, as reimbursing legitimate travel expenses is perfectly acceptable). Open the link connected to the title to read more.

The treadmill was hooked up to a computer that ran the test so it would calculate exactly 2000 meters. (It calculates your pace per k and then just has you run 2,000 meters.) Also, the treadmill picks up your heart rate and then the computer takes data from that every 5 seconds and gives the average heart rate per minute. The computer does it all except take the blood (which Fritz does).

EVALUATE YOUR CURRENT PHYSICAL CONDITION: The first order of business is to visit your physician to ensure that your physical condition warrants starting a running/fitness program. This will provide a base line for future comparison as you improve your fitness level. At this point you should also start a training diary or log. Included in that log should be your current vitals, such as resting heart rate, weight and HDL/LDL cholesterol numbers
