Andrew Kozel, Jackie Chalmers, Kathleen Durand and Teddy & Alison Scranton had excellent track seasons on their own this year but they also improved our family track bests. Check it out here. Let me know of marks to fill in the missing boxes. All marks must e from the NBL, SCL or CMC leagues.
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. My thoughts at looking at these photos are the pits we use to use. Check them out, especially the ones of me vaulting in 1975. This was at the SRJC, the best facility in the area. Notice the fine pits, none in front of the back of the box,… Read More »

It was her 5th sub 2:13.16 during her high school carreer surpassing Woolheater (4), Stamps (2), Kristen Sanzari, Maria Carrillo (2) and Laurie Hollingworth, Piner (1). The event was won by state champion Mikaela Smith from Clovis North.… Read More »
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 »
