OR State Meet 11/2 at
Lane Community College - One of the most anticipated state
meet races of the season—The Oregon 4-A Division championships
at Lane CC. Last year Lauren Jespersen and
Jacob Gomez, both of Klamath (Klamath Falls) set the course
record at 15:29, listed by Oregon’s Who’s Who
of track and Cross country, as the fastest in state history.
There is some question as to what the record should be since
current co-head coach at South Eugene, Jeff Hess ran 14:33
in 1978 to win the state meet for South. However, Hess demanded
that then Coach and now co-coach John Gillespie, measure the
course the next day. Gillespie did and found it to be 3 miles,
about 188 yards short of 5,000 meters. Two years earlier another
South Eugene legend, Bill McChesney, had run 14:51. No other
runners have ever broken 15 minutes in the state meet but
that barrier will be challenged this Saturday. Pushing the
undefeated Jespersen, who won the Stanford invitational in
a course record 14:54 earlier this year, will be junior sensation,
the undefeated Galen Rupp of Central Catholic
(Portland), who won his district meet in 15:15 and last year
at the U.S. Junior National ran 14:34 on the track for 5,000
meters. Joining these two are the Grant (Portland) duo of
Alec Wall and Joaquin Chapa,
who ran 15:02 and 15:11 behind Jasperson at Stanford. Rounding
out what just might be the best five-some ever to face off
in Oregon harrier history is Lincoln (Portland) senior Mike
McGrath, who possess 1:50 speed and finished just
behind the Grant pair in last weeks district meet. These peope
are going to COOK. (from Mike Kennedy's Foot
