Saturday Chanellle Price, Sam Borchers continue the glow in Greensboro
Early Saturday evening, well after Chanelle Price's 2:02.76 800-meter tour de force left grizzled track veterans debating whether this year’s NON represented one of the best high school meets ever, the action in the stadium collected into a perfect storm. . . . see Saturday page

Bodies on the Brink
If there was any question of the toll that chasing a four-minute mile took on Sam Borchers and Ben Hubers, there was ample evidence on the infield podium 45 minutes after the race. Completely spent, the two runners were splayed side-by-side across the wooden dais, flat on their backs, awaiting an awards ceremony of which they were barely cognizant. -- story by Dave Devine

Matt Centrowitz MD and Eleanor Roosevelt MD light up the night
Centrowitz matches Pre's all-tim US#3 2-mile, Blazin' Raiders girls (aka Eleanor Roosevelt MD high school) set national record in 1600m sprint medley relay. See Friday page.

DyeStat on-site -- DyeStat will be on-site in force at NON for the 10th straight year. Last year we had a team of 8, with stories, pix and video of every event. Prior Years on DyeStat

It started in Southern California in 1991 at Birmingham High School, Van Nuys. Two young girls who would go on to world renown were winners -- Californian Marion Jones won the 200 in 23.32 -1.44 and Texan Amy Acuff won the high jump at 6-2. Many future US Olympians since then have competed at NON.
The meet moved to UCLA in 1993 and then to North Carolina for an 11-year run at NC State's track in Raleigh. Since 2005, the home has been North Carolina A&T's fine facility in Greensboro NC.
