Possible CC prospects?

Post by Geezaldinho on Wed Dec 12, 2007 11:33 am

I ran across this today from the Seattle PI.

It loks like a couple of good prospects are looking at Portland.

Emily Farrar and Natty Plunket both mention Portland on the list of schools they are considering.

Yeah, it's pretty exciting. We have TWO girls with a 5:02 mile coming in next year so far. They'll replace our two exiting seniors, Allison Ritchie and Bobeya Krishnek nicely. Bo has gone under 5 for the mile and Allison hovers around 5:05 I think.

Sounds like coach Solof signed a stud from Utah:

This past week Luke Puskedra and Hailey Knettles were named the 2007-08 Gatorade Cross Country Runners of the Year, the first year Gatorade has presented the award for cross country.

The award is intended to honor those athletes who excel on and off the field, and Puskedra and Knettles definitely fit that criteria.

...

Like her Judge teammate, Knettles also won the 3A state title this year finishing with a time of 18:25, 22 seconds ahead of the second-place runner.

At the girls Foot Locker Western Regional, Knettles finished in 54th place. She maintains a 3.77 GPA and has verbally committed to University of Portland.

Sounds good!

Just saw that we signed another runner, Lyndy Davis of Monroe high school in the Seattle area.

Looks like she has some good times... welcome Lyndy!

I raan across this link today KCcomunity news.com

The article mentions that Track and cross country runner Elizabeth Keaveny From St. Teresa's in Kansas City also got in on the signing action. She is headed to the the bluff.

Looks like there are going to be some good runners all around. Here's another piece on her Here

another runner signs

Post by Geezaldinho on Wed Feb 27, 2008 2:24 am

Shane Geiger, a senior cross country and track standout at Camas High School, has signed a letter of intent with the University of Portland.

Columbian.com

Among other things, he'll be the best returning HS runner this spring in the 1600.

For an idea on his times, look at his athletic.net profile

Here's a nice article about UP recruit Hailey Knettles. She's aiming for three individual state track titles this year (800, 1600, 3200). Sounds like a total stud... she also won the individual state XC title in the fall.

1) It's weird they still use yards

2) I'm surprised they allow kids to race all three... in Oregon you can only do either the 800 and the 3000 or the 800 and the 1500. They don't let you do the 1500 and the 3000 together no matter what.

Washington state still uses the 1600 and 3200 as well...

Distance

Post by pilotbmg on Thu Apr 24, 2008 8:22 pm

Not true (about the # of races). In Oregon, you can run whichever TWO that you want. You just can't run all three distance events in the same meet. I often ran the 1,500/3,000 double in HS.

Oh... oops! My bad. I was a JV sprinter, and not a good one at that. The long distances scared me. Smile

Are you sure "stud" is the proper term for a future coed student-athlete? jocolor

Nice article about Bethany McInturff of Idaho, who just won the 1600 and the 800 at the Idaho state meet:
