Texas Sweeps GHAC Relays
Cinco Ranch Katy boys, A&M Consolidated girls
win first online high school track meet
Cinco Ranch added the GHAC crown to their second straight Texas 5A championship. They were led by the stellar trio of Scott Sellers (HJ), Queito Teasley (LJ) and Trevor Gerland (110H).
A&M Consolidated's strength is in distance (Jocelyn Gardner) and throws (Candis Kelley). Those events are undervalued in the sprint-centric Texas state meet scoring system, but they played well in the GHAC Relays, which test the spectrum of skills in track and field. MORE

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."

Shaker anchor Joe Belokopitsky and Colts Neck anchor Craig Forys got the baton a half step apart and were still that way at the finish. Colts Neck tied a New Jersey record held by the famous 1978 Trenton team. Add Syosset NY's national indoor record holder and Pennsylvania's pair (Conestoga Valley and North Penn), and the Nike Outdoor National 4x800 Friday night in Greensboro NC could be a historic showdown.
