College Choices 2005
North Carolina gets Katelyn and Brie; Zoe picks Oregon
The last two Foot Locker girls national champions made their college choices on the first day of the early signing period. Flathead MT sr Zoe Nelson, 2002 Foot Locker national champion, decided on the University of Oregon after campus visits to Oregon, Northern Arizona and Duke. Smoky Hill Aurora CO sr Katelyn Kaltenbach, the defending Foot Locker champion, signed to follow sister Megan to the University of North Carolina. UNC got another top Western runner in Brie Felnagle, ace of US#9 Bellarmine Tacoma WA. Katelyn Kaltenbach's Smoky Hill teammate Morgan Schulz, also a Foot Locker finalist last year, decided on Notre Dame. Still another former Foot Locker finalist (2002), home schooled Chantelle Dron of New Hampshire, cast her college lot with Colorado State, where she will study equine science.

Foot Locker Favorites - Midwest Girls
DyeStat identifies the top contenders for the coveted spots in the Foot Locker Cross Country Championship finals in San Diego Dec. 11. 8-part series by Steve Underwood.
2nd of a series: Midwest Girls --
To figure out Foot Locker Midwest Girls, you have to start with Colorado, home of perhaps the biggest question (Katelyn Kaltenbach) and the biggest splash (Whitney Anderson) in the country this year.
Midwest Boys -- Jeff See OH, John McGuire CO, Sean McNamara IL, Kiel Uhl IA, Justin Switzer MI, Dan Roberts MI, Chris Rombough WI, and Ryan Gasper WI are most likely to grab the eight qualifying spots Nov. 27 in Wisconsin.

Super Saturday
Eighteen state meets took place Saturday 11/6, and some amazing things happened. MW#1 US#3 Clarkston MI had five girls including their lead runner go down in a big pileup at 400 meters and their #2 runner misjudge the finish line, and still won the Michigan state meet. MW#1 US#2 York Elmhurst IL boys swept 1-2-3 in the Illinois state meet, an unprecedented feat in the state of Lincoln. NW#2 US#5 Ferris Spokane was the last man standing in the heavyweight Washington state meet. SW#5 South Tahoe, which straddles California and Nevada like the lake, made a bid to move up in the rankings by beating rival Reno in the Nevada state meet, but Reno's incomparable Marie Lawrence won individual honors, chopping 26 seconds off older sister Collier's course record. The fifth time was the charm for SW#5 Albuquerque Academy boys. They lost only to SW#2 Los Alamos in the regular season and that happened four times, but the Academy won when it counted in the New Mexico state meet -- their 7th title in 10 years.

NSSF picks Nike
to sponsor outdoor meet

The National Scholastic Sports Foundation has changed sponsors for its outdoor championship -- adidas is out and Nike is in. The meet, which was held at Raleigh the last few years, will be held at North Carolina A&T's facility in Greensboro NC next June 17-18.
NSSF director Jim Spier said he was thrilled to have Nike as sponsor for the outdoor meet. "Our mission is to provide first-class opportunities for athletes, coaches and fans, and Nike's involvement is a big part of making that happen."
Josh Rowe, Nike youth running director, echoed these remarks: "We are proud to have championships now in all three high school seasons -- cross country, indoor and outdoor. We are happy with our association with NSSF as we build on this partnership to continue to elevate high school athletics at the championship level."
Nike is now the sponsor of all three NSSF meets -- Great American, Nike Indoor, and Nike Outdoor.

NTN - Foot Locker West conflict is resolved
Nov 6, 2004 -- DyeStat has learned that Western coaches are being told by NTN officials that Nike and Foot Locker have agreed that additional runners from the new Nike Team Nationals (NTN) in Portland December 4 will qualify for the Foot Locker Cross Country Championship national finals the following week in San Diego. The agreement involves expansion of the Foot Locker finals fields from 32 to 40 (10 from each of the four Foot Locker regions). As a result, individuals in the Foot Locker West region who are on teams invited to NTN will not have to choose between running with their team in Portland and competing in the Foot Locker regional at Mt. San Antonio College, Walnut CA, the same day, December 4.

Twenty boys teams and 20 girls teams will run at NTN in Portland. The basic agreement is that the first two individuals across the NTN finish line in Portland from each of the four Foot Locker regions will qualify for the Foot Locker finals. If, however, any of these 16 individuals (8 boys and 8 girls) has already qualified in the three earlier Foot Locker regionals, the slot would go to an alternate at the Foot Locker regionals. The first three Foot Locker regionals will be held November 27 in New York (Northeast), North Carolina (South) and Wisconsin (Midwest). These regionals qualify eight runners to San Diego, with the 9th and 10th runners designated as alternates

the good news:
DyeStat has been sold.
the bad news:
None. There is no downside to this.

Dear DyeStatters,

Exciting times are ahead for DyeStat!

Donna and I have sold to BC Sports, the company that owns Student Sports. Student Sports is a print and online publishing company with longstanding and deep relationships with high school football, basketball and soccer players through the publications and special events it promotes.

BC Sports approached Donna and me because they would like to establish the same strong connection to the high school track & field athlete that they have with the other sports. They've asked us to continue to manage for the next 4 years (at least) while they explore ways to help us make bigger and better.

So, isn't going away, nor are Donna and I.

When we started DyeStat 8 years ago, we had no idea what it would become. I sometimes call it a hobby gone berserk. It has certainly come to dominate my life. Lately, I have had to consider that at my age (a very healthy 68, but 68 nevertheless), I can't keep doing DyeStat 7 days a week indefinitely. In order to have other people take over some of my duties, we need new revenues or outside investors. Fortunately for all of us, BC Sports stepped up. They have pledged to continue everything we now provide and to add even more features. Donna and I will continue to cover all the big meets for years to come.

That's it for now. I have to go post some results and rankings.

Caitlin Chock
joins the Oregon Project

PORTLAND OR 11/2/04 -- Caitlin Chock, the California prep star who set an American HS record for 5000 meters of 15:52.88 finishing fifth at the World Junior Championships in Grosseto Italy last summer (right), is moving to Portland this week to join the Oregon Project. Chock signed with the University of Richmond, but withdrew last month and returned to California. The Oregon Project is a Nike-sponsored experimental distance training program headed by Alberto Salazar, 3-time New York Marathon champion and former world record holder in the marathon.
