There are a number of super track programs in this area and some not only turn out great runners every year but also seem to have a ball together while doing it. One of those programs is the Santa Rosa High teams. I saw some photos from their year end party and I think I may have spotted why they have such a good time. Here are a few of their coaching staff at the party.
I came across a couple of old (1973) photos, below, of Montgomery’s Tom Buzzard high jumping. Track is still adding new rules, especial to pole vault, to try and increase safety.

In the preseason I talked about how it looked like the new league alignments between the North Bay League and Sonoma County League would be causing a big imbalance with no changes by the NCS to adjust qualifying into the NCS Redwood Championship meet. A quick look at how the leagues fared at that meet shows that sure enough the NBL, this year, is about equal in strength to both the SCL and Big 5 leagues together, even though all… Read More »
