a huge weekend . . . single race showdowns in New Jersey, New York and Massachusetts, with 13 NTN Northeast region ranked teams jockeying for position for the NTN Selection Sunday 3 picks, plus Border Battles in Arizona and Ohio and furious division finals in California's Southern Section.

1 Northeast CT, MA, ME, NH, NJ, NY, PA, RI, VT

  • Northeast Week Nov 20 -- Two meets. Two US#1's. 13 ranked teams. 108 miles apart. But the repercussions from "Feds" at Bowdoin Park NY and "All-Groups" at Holmdel Park NJ could be felt nationwide.
  • New York Federation Championships -
    Complete Federation Results
    Both US#1 teams were in this race -- Saratoga girls and Fayetteville-Manlius boys -- and both won, so the interesting fights were for second. F-M boys 34 (3 4 8 9 10 with 9 second spread), NE#3 Lockport 152 (6 26 31 32 57)), Burnt Hills Ballston Lake 186 (7 25 27 59 68), NE#10 Saratoga 208 (18 29 38 58 65)). Saratoga girls 22 (1 3 5 6 7), Shenendehowa 142, Bethlehem 145, NE#2 Bay Shore 148, NE#5 Hilton 151, NE#6 Cicero North Syracuse 166.
  • Don Rich report:
    - "it was the margin that was remarkable."
    Fayetteville-Manlius - if you thought Manhattan was crazy, look at this. OK, the 12-second spread that Fayetteville-Manlius unleashed on an unsuspecting Manhattan Invitational field in October was pretty impressive. Well, try just 9 seconds at Feds.
    An opposing coach admires Fayetteville-Manlius:
    "Kind of like they peaked all season"
    "Knowing how difficult it is to have five or more runners 'peak' at one point in time, their performance is even more impressive. Kind of like they peaked all season! Great dedication, team chemistry (at least looking in from the outside) and probably some pretty decent coaching too!" --- Lockport NY coach Bob Eberhardt after his team, and every other NY boys' team was soundly defeated by US#1 Fayetteville-Manliuis at the NY Federation Championships 11/20.
  • New Jersey All Group Meet of Champions -
    Complete New Jersey MOC results and stories
    Christian Brothers Academy
    boys and Roxbury girls, both ranked #4 in the NTN Northeast region, won big and then awaited the New York results to see if they could move up. Roxbury 73, Msgr Donovan 138. CBA 69, NE#6 Morris Hills 96.

  • Massachusetts State Meet
    Complete Massachusetts results
    No NTN ranked teams, but Chris Barnicle is one of the favorites in the Foot Locker Northeast regional at Van Cortlandt Park, New York City, next week. Chris Barnicle 14.09 (2.9 miles) leads Newton North boys 62 over Brockton 67 at Gardner MA. Fastest girl of day is Alexandra Krieg 16:50, who led Wellesley 37 to Division 2 championship.

    Don Rich report:
    Ohio harriers swept the individual and team titles on home turf in Kettering, Ohio, but the one individual champ was somewhat of an upset.
    As predicted in the preview by Mike Bauman, Troy OH SR Levi Fox would be in the mix with pre-race favorite Jeff See of Middletown, OH. Fox won in a convincing 15:37, with Cedar Springs MI SR Dan Cramer 2nd in 15:44, Greenville PA SR Jed Christiansen 3rd a second back, and See, 4th in 15:48. The Ohio boys tallied 37 points. Their girls weren't much more at 40, behind the convincing win of Indian Lake SR Brittany Tinsley in 17:55. Michigan was 2nd with a combined score of 99.

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.
