California Cross Country 2001

Is it the water?

Amber Trotter is just the latest North Bay League star

SANTA ROSA CA 10/23/01 - With Ukiah sr Amber Trotter's record setting victory at Mt. SAC last Saturday, sports writer Jim Crowhurst had to update his record books on the North Bay League. Trotter follows Sara Bei and Julia Stamps as members of this 8-team league. Here is Crowhurst's analysis.

Is it the water?

by Jim Crowhurst

The North Bay League has been turning out some unbelievable female distance runners.

Amber Trotter of Ukiah follows on the heals of National Champions Sara Bei (2000) of Montgomery and Julia Stamps (1994) of Santa Rosa.

Ukiah is the largest of the eight school league with a 1460 enrollement.

 

That makes it pretty tough to take down any course records as you can see below.

CR – still course record

 

I believe Stamps held the record on every high school course she ever ran on except San Diego’s Balboa  Park were her 16:41.9 5K National winning time was only 2.6 seconds off of Colorado’s Melody Fairchild’s mark in winning the 1990 Nationals. Stamps held the Mt. Sac record at 16:55.

Bei holds the other 5K National course record at Florida’s Disney World at 16:55. At Mt. Sac she had a 17:05 best.

Trotter destroyed the Mt. Sac record running 16:16.
