DyeStat 2001 Indoor

February 15-17, 2001 at Idaho State U., Pocatello ID 

Simplot Games
Holt Arena, Idaho State U., has a very fast, banked wood track on top of the indoor football field, with seating for 27,000

Since 1979, hundreds of elite athletes from all over the nation have found their way to Pocatello ID in mid-winter for one of the blue ribbon prep track and field events of the year.  The meet is sponsored and underwritten by privately held global agri-business giant J. R. Simplot Company (french fries, feeds, seeds, fertilizer), and it all started because the company patriarch, J.R. Simplot, loved track.  At 92 years old, he still attends each meet.

  • United Stars vs. Teekay Track Club - The superstar girls of United Stars (Pennsylvania) and Teekay Track Club (Wilson Long Beach CA - coached by "TK" Terry Kennedy) had terrific battles all through the meet, climaxing with the relays late Saturday.  The result was the same both times:  Teekay had the lead after Lashinda Demus ran the second leg , but United Stars rode to victory on the anchor legs of the coach's daughter, Tiffany Abney.
