the hottest meet in high school track and field -- virtually

by John Dye

Nike and DyeStat announce the NIKE GHAC RELAYS, a new way for high school track and field teams to compete with other schools from across the country -- without leaving home.

In the “postal relays” of old, coaches would have their team run a time trial, drop the results in the mail, and—a few weeks later—find out how they ranked. Now, Nike and DyeStat are using online technology to create a modern version of that idea. And instead of just one event, the GHAC Relays consists of 10 events across all track and field disciplines.

The best teams will have balance. You can't win the GHAC Relays with just a couple of studs in a couple of events. Each team's best performance in each event will be scored decathlon style with a formula that gives 1000 points for a national record level performance and 700 points for the DyeStat Elite top 100 cutoff standard. The team score is the sum of the 10 event scores. An online scoreboard will let you slice and dice the scores any way you like. Prizes and surprises await the best teams.

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."
