Performance Psychology: Dr Steve Potenga is in town for Payton Jordan and will speak at Monta Vista HS on May 1st at 6:30, all are welcome.
CCS Team Predictions: If CCS were run today and everyone matched their season best and ran in all the events that they are currently listed in, this is how the Team Standings would shake out. Guys have stayed pretty much the same since 3 weeks ago but the ladies have changed up quite a bit.
Bill Daskarolis (Aragon): In 1968.
Boston Marathon: It was a hot one and hence a slow one.
Hoops & Hurdles: a look back by Edward Griffin to 1955 when University of San Francisco was going to bring back their Track & Field program (like San Jose State is planning to do next year). A young Bill Russell who was powerfull on the boards was bringing his athleticism to the oval - a fun read with some great pics and history.
CCS Record for Aptos girls in the 4x1600: A new CCS record in the 4x1600 (old rec=SLV 2000 20:48.41) was set by Aptos (20:45.43) at Arcadia with a team of Clare Peabody (5:10); Jackie Stanger (5:16); Yulisa Abundis (5:18); Nikki Hiltz (4:58.5).
Lynbrook Vs Paly Meet Records: Last dual meet of the season coming up this thursday at Palo Alto. I predict the Vikings will win all 4 divisions.
Boston Marathon, 1st Woman: With Boston coming up in a week, here's a great look-back to 1967 when the first woman "crashed" this all-male event - a good watch.
CCS Top 8: Coaches - I am in the process of verifying all marks for the CCS Top 8 meet. Please use ONLY marks from THIS YEAR when making your entries.

Bill Green ('79-Cubberley): who is #2 on the CCS All-Time 400 list passed away at the age of 50 of esophageal cancer. Palo Alto Online story about Bill.
Wildcat 5K: Dougherty Valley HS (San Ramon) puts on their annual track fundraiser 5K.

Lynbrook Vs Mt View Meet Records: Tuesday is the day, hope we stay dry.
Jim Ryun: Ever wonder what kind of workouts a 16 yr old (Junior) Jim Ryun (first HSer to break 4:00 in the mile) did in order to go sub-4? Month 1 / Month 2 / Month 3 / Month 4 / Month 5 / .
West Valley Relays: LynbrookSports.com will be at the West Valley Relays this weekend tweeting results and progress to the schedule. Since it's a "rolling schedule", you really should "follow" me so that you have some sort of idea where we are in the meet.

Both pits are still fully functional. The High Jump pit is in pretty good shape especially. I am imagining these will be sold for a 200-400 dollars a piece if anyone is interested.

Lynbrook Vs Gunn Meet Records: Back to my alma mater to take on the Titans - Go Vikings! (now that just feels odd...).
Darryl Beardall ('55-Santa Rosa HS): So let's say you started running at age 15 and ran 20 miles a day, 5 days a week (100mpw) and you ran 50 weeks a year (5000mpy), in 60 years (age 75) you'd achieve what Darryl has achieved, over 300K of miles. His best HS finish I could find was the 1954 NCS XC Finals where he placed 3rd and he's still racing some 60 years later.

NFHS T&F 2012 Rules: some new ones and a new rule about Jewelry DQ. Also a clarification from Hal Harkness - on page 4 of the 2012 Case Book, 5.10.7 it says "touching the baton outside the zone is not a violation".... Hal emphasized that this is a violation, as rule 5.10.7 states. Touching the baton before the zone is a violation. A nice, short recap of rule changes for 2012.
CCS Time Schedule: This is just a draft and subject to change. From Steve Filios of CCS... "After consulting with the State Meet director Brian Weaver, I have attached a draft schedule (link on left) of the CCS semifinals and finals based on the State Meet order of events. Some noteworthy items: · As anticipated the GLJ, GHJ and BTJ will be conducted first this year, · The Girls and Boys PV will be contested at the same time in the trials. In the CIF finals the GPV will be contested first., · They are no longer alternating the order of racing (B/G). The girls heats will always precede the boys heats., · I reviewed and figured out what was meant by 4-4-4 instead of 3-3-6 in the 1600 races. At the CIF trials there are TWO heats of 1600 for each gender. Previously the top three from each heat plus the next fastest 6 times would advance to the finals. Beginning in 2012, the top four from each heat and the next fastest 4 times will advance to the finals. The CCS meet will NOT reflect this policy since our bylaws call for 2-2-8 qualifying. We cannot change this for 2012 but can explore it, if you wish, for future years at the Evaluation Meeting in June. , · Use of alleys in the 1600 and 3200, Brian confirmed that the fastest athlete will be on the outside in the outer alley. He also recommended that if there were 16 athletes in the race, he would put the slowest 10 on the inside alley (slowest time along the curb) with the fastest 6 in the outside lane (fastest qualifier on the outside)."
