Texas State Meet
DyeStat On-Site with John (Stats) Sullivan. -
Sullivan's preview
- Texas boys are fast -- they hold the national record in the 100, 200, 4x100 and 4x200. South Garland's Matthew Harding is this year's favorite. Foot Locker finalist Scott MacPherson will battle The Woodlands stars in the 1600 (Luke Hansen) and 3200 (Dan Gerber). Erin Bedell looks to repeat in the 1600 and double in the 800. Nichole Jones faces Miranda Walker, Danielle Selner, and Jocelyn Gardner in the 3200. Two of nation's best hurdlers are in 5A 110H, with US#1 Trevor Gerland hoping to turn tables on regional victor Jamaal Charles. Defending 5A boys champ Cinco Ranch Katy is led by Scott Sellers, the national HJ leader for the last 2 years, who will also run relays and triple jump. Cinco Ranch has two more super stars in hurdler/sprinter Trevor Gerland and LJ/sprinter Queito Teasley. Skyline Dallas girls are hurting with 2004 sprint doubler Krystin Lacy questionable due to injuries. Inika McPherson is US#1 in high jump (6-2), but she has formidable competition in Destinee Hooker and Epley Bullock, both also 6-footers. D'Andra Carter hopes to match her older sister Michelle's throws double, but faces the national leader in discus, Maria Matos.
Regional Elite - 332 performances in regions qualifying for DyeStat Elite top 100 national ranking. Look at 3rd place finishers and see how good you can be and still not qualify for the state finals.


Allison Stokke
breaks leg

Newport Harbor CA sophomore Allison Stokke, one of the emerging talents in pole vault, broke her right tibia Monday (5/9) and is out for the year. She was trying a new pole in practice and fell into the concrete box. Stokke won the California state championships as a freshman last year and this year was US#1 outdoors with a mark of 13-5.75, which is a national sophomore class record. [more in local news story.]

In Eugene OR, U. of Oregon freshman Galen Rupp ran 28:15.51 at the Oregon Twilight meet to break Rudy Chapa's 29-year-old record of 28:32.7. Rupp ran last year for Central Catholic Portland OR high school. Story and photos
In New York City, Harvard freshman Lindsay Scherf ran 32:51.20 at the Heptagonal Championships at Columbia to break Mary Shea's 26-year-old record of 32:52.5. Scherf is from Scarsdale NY.


DyeStat Live at Oregon Twilight
Galen Rupp destroys 10K record with 28:15.51 at Oregon Twilight meet -- 17 seconds better than Rudy Chapa's US Junior record set in 1976.

After running on the heels of rabbits for 15 laps, Rupp took the lead on lap 16 with a 65.5 tour and gapped Mike Donnelly by 100 meters as the Hayward Field crowd "went nuts," Marc Davis reported. Rupp looked strong throughout and was running fastest at the end, with a 64-second last lap and a big negative split of 5k's -- 14:17 and 13:58. "He's running all alone, except for the crowd, which is on its feet screaming," Davis said.

Marc Davis story - Marc Davis live lap by lap
"Two weeks ago, if Galen Rupp gave the Oregon track fans a little appetizer, then tonight he stuffed Track Town USA with a three course meal." And the chef may be merely wetting Duck fans appetites.
Rupp gave himself a birthday present: "It was awesome. To win a race here wearing an Oregon uniform; there's nothing like it. It feels so good to run here in front of these fans. I really can't describe it."

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.

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.

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."
