Personal Notes

  • Katie Harrington has arthroscopic surgery - Carmel IN Foot Locker finalist Katie Harrington will miss the Midwest Meet of Champions because she recently had arthroscopic surgery on her right knee to remove the plica band. Katie's father, Dave, said the plica band is tissue that usually recedes in infancy, but didn't in Katie's case. She had similar surgery on her left knee 3 years ago. She is back in training and is expected to return to competition soon.
  • Liz Lange has a broken ankle - Pius X Lincoln NE senior is out indefinitely. She was the Nebraska Class A mile champion last year.
  • Meredith Snow moves to Missouri - Nebraska Class A 3200 champion for Millard West Omaha will run for Eureka MO this year. She is a sophomore.

Natalie Picchetti moves to California - A 2002 Foot Locker finalist while running for Reagan San Antonio TX, Picchetti is now at Rancho Cucamonga HS in California, DyeStatCal reports.

150 Foot Locker Favorites
The 64 elite runners who will toe the line in San Diego December 13 will come from four regionals. The top 8 boys and top 8 girls from each region qualify for the national finals. DyeStat has reviewed the contenders and developed lists of Foot Locker Favorites in each region. Initially, we have 150 FLF's based on 2002 regional results, 2003 outdoor mile and 2-mile times, and our own judgment. These are the runners we believe have the best chance of getting to San Diego based on their performances to date. We will update the lists periodically based on performances during the cross country season.

Harrier tabs Los Alamos NM girls, The Woodlands TX boys #1 in pre-season rankings
Los Alamos NM girls leapfrog Saratoga NY to US#1 starting the season in Marc Bloom's 2003 pre-season lists in The Harrier magazine. Los Alamos came to national consciousness late last year when they scored a perfect 15 in their state meet. Then their top two girls, Heather Wood and Kristen Hemphill, ran 6th and 12th in the Foot Locker West regional at Mt. SAC. Everyone is back as they try to deny Saratoga its 8th US#1 ranking in 11 years.

On the boys side, The Woodlands TX is pre-season #1 as they were last year before Mountain View Orem UT toppled them in the DQ-tainted Great American.

We're Number One!

About Us - the story of DyeStat, 1995 to 2004

2003 Season Summary
a banquet of stats to end the year
  • DyeStat Elite - 11,617 performances that won listing in DyeStat's own national rankings - there were 3,573 in cross country - 3,500 indoor - 4,544 outdoor.
  • Top Returnees - DyeStat Elite performers who will be back in 2004 - we have 3,776 returnees, including a bunch of 2003 US#1 performers.
    • Outdoor - Nine US#1 performers from the 2003 boys rankings will be back in 2004. Florida's football-sprinter stud Xavier Carter is a triple top returnee (100, 200, and 400). Jason Richardson (110H, 400H) is a double leader. On the girls side, Alandra Sherman was the US#1 hurdler of 2003 at 100m and 300m so she is naturally the top returnee for 2004. Shalonda Solomon, brilliant anchor of Poly Long Beach CA's record setting relay teams, moves up as top bet to fill Allyson Felix's shoes in the 100 and 200. Katya Kostetskaya, from Arkansas via Russia, starts her junior year top rated in the 800 and 400H (European junior champion).
    • Indoor - Very talented returning group of girls led by 3-event leaders Natasha Hastings (300, 400 and USR 500) and Erica McLain (55H, LJ, TJ). Double event leaders are Katya Kostetskaya (800, 1500), Sarah Bowman (1000, Mile), and Nicole Blood (3000, 2-mile). Galen Rupp (3000 and 2-mile) is the only double leader in the boys lists.
    • Cross Country - Foot Locker finalists lead three of the four returnee lists, including girls champion Zoe Nelson, Flathead MT, who had the four best 3-mile times of the 2002 season and then won at 5k in San Diego, plus Nicole Blood (17:04 5k) and Galen Rupp (14:56 5k). The fourth leader is Mark Matusak (14:20 3 miles).

New Faces - the freshmen (and younger) athletes who made DyeStat Elite national rankings. These are the stars of the future, and for some, like Nicole Blood, the future is now. Proving again that girls mature earlier than boys, there are 387 girls on these lists and only 31 boys - 418 new faces

  • Outdoor - North Carolina hurdler Kris Fant is the leader at both 110m and 300m. Elizabeth Olear, the newest of California's inexhaustible flow of girl sprinters, leads at 100 and 200 meters.
  • Indoor - Nicole Blood, already in her third year on the Saratoga NY varsity, leads five events from 1000 to 2-mile. Shana Woods, who cracked the lineup of the record setting Poly Long Beach CA relay squads, leads three events.
  • Cross Country - Foot Locker finalist Nicole Blood leads the 5k list.
  •
