Steve (steveu) Underwood says: "God On The Starting Line is a wonderful gift to the world of prep distance running. It's kind of like eating, oh, a premium triple chocolate fudge brownie ice cream sundae. You might feel stuffed and a little woozy, but like you've never devoured anything so delicious."

Michigan runner dies in auto accident
4/22/2005 -- Fremont MI sr Riley Klingel was killed in an auto accident on his way to school today. Klingel was named Mr. Michigan Cross Country by the coaches association as the leading senior. He finished second behind Foot Locker national finalist Dan Roberts at both the Portage Invitational and the Michigan state meet Division 2. Visitation and services are at the Wesleyan Church in Fremont Monday and Tuesday.

Gerry Lindgren Invitational - a boys 2-mile race
April 22 - Salt Lake City
Top 2-milers from 10 states will run at East High School in Salt Lake City tonight at 6 pm Mountain time, with live TV on the local CBS station.
a conversation with Gerry Lindgren and Jeff Nelson
Gerry Lindgren was an idol. I'm in awe now just talking to him on the phone. -- Jeff Nelson.
Still the national record holders in the boys 2-mile after all these years, Gerry Lindgren (class of 1964) and Jeff Nelson (class of 1979) will meet for the first time at Salt Lake City Friday (4/22) at the Gerry Lindgren Invitational, a special 2-mile race featuring 20 top runners from 10 states. Lindgren and Nelson spoke to each other for the first time in a conference call recently and talked about why there was such a drought in HS distance running since their era and what it would take for someone to break their records now.

Stat of the Week - John Sullivan is a track nut who can't get enough track stats. He cranks out lists for his own amusement -- and now he can amuse you as well. Boys 2-Mile Record Progression - In 1964, Gerry Lindgren was the first to break 9 minutes. Then, Jeff Nelson in 1979 was the first (and still the only one) to go under 8:40.

at last, a track for Mervo Tech
Mergenthaler Vocational Technical High School in Baltimore ("Mervo Tech") has turned out top athletes for years without a track of its own. That changed Saturday (4/16) with the first Freddie Hendricks Track Festival, the first meet on Mervo Tech's new track. The meet was named in honor of former coach Freddie Hendricks, who overcame the lack of facilities for 40 years before retiring last year. Hendricks' top product was 1996 graduate James Carter, US champion 400m hurdler last year and fourth in the last two Olympic Games.

Galen Rupp trying to run for Oregon
The Associated Press reports that Galen Rupp, the 2004 high school track and field athlete of the year, has hired a law firm to help get NCAA clearance for him to join the University of Oregon track team. The firm submitted documentation to show that Rupp has not compromised his amateur status while training with Alberto Salazar and the Nike-funded Oregon Project. Rupp enrolled at Oregon recently after track coach Martin Smith resigned and Mead Spokane WA coach Pat Tyson was retained as a volunteer distance coach. [more]

Pat Tyson leaves Mead for U. of Oregon
Highly successful high school coach Pat Tyson will move to the University of Oregon to take over the distance program. Tyson is taking a leave of absence from Mead High School, Spokane WA, where he coached 12 state champion cross country teams in the past 19 years. Mead finished third in December in the first Nike Team Nationals cross country team championship. Tyson ran for Oregon and was Steve Prefontaine's roommate when he died. "Pre made me," Tyson told The Oregonian newspaper. "I was his little sidekick." The Eugene Register-Guard said leaving the security of teaching and coaching at Mead for the challenges at U.O. is " the kind of gamble that Pre would have taken himself.."
Galen Rupp to Oregon too? - After the Tyson announcement, the Eugene Register-Guard said that the Track & Field News 2004 high school Athlete of the Year, who set a national record for 5000 meters, would enroll in classes at Oregon Monday (4/4) and will run for Oregon this spring if NCAA eligibility papers can be cleared in time. Rupp did not sign any national letter of intent after graduating from Central Catholic Portland last spring and continued to train with former Oregon start Alberto Salazar, who was his high school coach and also runs the Nike Oregon Project of elite distance runners.
