Indian Riffle Park…Note the different names.     Outlook – Celina and Oakwood are teams that will be vying for one of those top 4 regional spots to qualify to the state meet. Celina is in another regional though.  Our varsity has yet to put together its best race yet as we still have pieces missing.  Celina is a team just a hair ahead of Kenton Ridge and Northwestern.  Let’s beat Celina!!!  Let's keep that tight pack, but string together good races out of everyone.  Who will make our 6th, 7th man spot strong Saturday?  When it comes down to deciding who runs varsity at district (top 7) we will use the criteria at the bottom.  Focus on moving up the entire race, rather than getting bogged down.  The varsity race is small.  There will not be hundreds of runners in this race.  You should be close to the front.  On the JV side, you will have hundreds in your race.  Use the competition to inch closer to those varsity times.  Know the course.  We will run 8-10 in the first varsity race and no less than 5 in the the team JV race (See schedule above).      An extra long cooldown cannot hurt.  Jay is in charge of the varsity warmup and Dean is in charge of the 2nd group’s warmup.  Storm is in charge of the varsity cooldown and Tyler is in charge of the 2nd team cool down.  Make sure everyone is together,  Bring plenty of clothes to run in.  You want to be warm while you are standing around rooting for other team members as well.    October 5th – Anna Invitational October 9thWednesday CC teams are in charge of collecting items 5-7PM that will be dopped off for the Booster Garage Sale October 12th Saturday Track and Field Team are in charge of working at the Booster Garage Sale October 12th CBC Meet at Tipp City October 15th – Young’s Dairy Invitational (Youngs Dairy afterward)  Athletes not in the top 10 should turn in uniforms afterward October 19th – Division II District Meet at Miami Valley Career Center (Trotwood)  (Top 3 teams to Regional, 12 individuals) Oct

Troy Invitational Saturday September 21st, 2013 by Troy Memorial Stadium and beside Hobart Arena                                                                                                                                                             Friday Curfew:  10:30 P.M.  (Get that 8 hrs of sleep)   Saturday  6:30 AM – bus pulls out for Troy Invitational… Do Not Miss The Bus!!! Varsity an JV Boys               9:00 am Varsity and JVGirls               9:40 am 12:30 PM Return to Bellefontaine (if not before) Troy conflicts????  If you have a situation requiring you to take your athlete after the meet in the case of an unavoidable conflict (BOE adopted athletic code), make sure that Coach Davis knows this by Friday evening with a note or call or text him at 210-0430 .  This policy is in place to protect your student-athlete.  Thanks!   Directions to Troy -  take 235 through DeGraff and Quincy.  Follow 235 past KTH factory and through 36 intersection (Top Hat on left).  Continue on 235 until reaching (2 options) state route 55 or Old Troy Pike Road..  Turn right onto 55 taking it until you reach Troy.  On into Troy you should see the stadium.  Parking is between the football stadium and Hobart Arena.  It should take less than an hour by car.   What to Bring?  - towel, money for concession or packed lunch, spikes if you have them (½” - 5/8” would probably work at Troy), uniform and a change of dry clothes (always prep for rain).  It will be soggy more than likely so prep with longer spikes.    Next Saturday – Kettering Fairmont Firebird Invitational at Rapid Riffle Park.  Be at school 6:30 AM.     Troy's Course -Flat, fast...especially if they cut the grass's the regional pay attention if you are a candidate for varsity spots at the season's end. We've fared well here as we've won 5 regional titles, 2 runner-up regional titles and qualified the team out to the state meet 8 times!  It is like a track when the ground is hard and ry.  We will need some volunteers to be at key locations counting places for you to hear throughout the race to use.   Focu on  things that you can control....moving up throughout the race...setting many short term goals throughout the race... talking the positive talk.  Many of you PR'd at Alliance or Ohio Caverns.  External conditions beyond your noggins only affect those who are weak minded and waiver in the wind.  Be mentally tough tomorrow.   You can do amazing things if you can conquer the battle that lies within.  Let’s keep that pack attack going!  Let’s get a closer 1-5 pack.  Let’s draw that 6 and 7 runners closer to that pack.   The rest of you… Adam, Adam, and Dean have made strides toward big improvement.  Keep at it!  Be consistent! Cayden is still headed toward those freshman times.  Zack is looking like a CC runner!  Coakley nearly got his PR at Ohio Caverns!  Keith has had great practices and it showed at Alliance.  Tyler ran a good race in his Chieftain debut and looks toward reeling in some of you guys.  Be consistent Saturday.  PR’s don’t happen every race, but a PR mentality and preparation can!  There aren’t a lot of schools(see below)…Tipp,  Anna, Sycamore, Troy, and probably  Kings will be tough.  Most are all division I schools.  Let us focus on the goals above. Be smart at the football game.  Get home tonight.  Some of you have let this team down this season because you stayed out way too late!  Have a great race!  We should get home in good time!  You can do what you want Friday night Saturday!  (Within the boundaries of moral and ethical, athletic-code behavior) Weather – wind 8 mph; high of 68.-60 while you are running!!!!   Humidity 97%+.   Hydrate!!! Cooler yes, but hydration is still a must!!

The Chieftain Boys CC squad is finally making a move in the right direction.  The past 2 races they have certainly turned a corner.  Tonight in the 20 team Ohio Caverns Invitational, they bested the entire field by outdistancing 2nd place Kenton Ridge 62-72.  Kenton Ridge had won a 20 team meet at Brookville 2 Saturdays ago.  County rival West Liberty Salem was 4th with 111 points.  The Tigers had beaten the Chiefs 3 weeks ago at the Kiwanis Logan County Meet.  Behind the Chiefs attack was a tight top 5 pack that was placed 4th to 18th.  It was the Chiefs first win at Ohio Caverns in 11 years.There were 126 runners in the varsity race. Below are the individual results for the varsity and the junior varsity. Varsity (126 runners) 4. Storm Harman 18:00 9. Ryan Dunn 18:17 14. Jay Clement 18:31 17. Wes Samuels 18:40 18. David Guajardo 18:40 57. Logan Carr 20:16 66. TJ Lamb 20:32 Junior Varsity (40 runners) 8. Adam Preston 21:25 19. Dean Smtih 22:16 20. Adam Verbsky 22:20 23. Tyler Avila 22:55 28. Cayden Dement 23:18 32. Zack Kerns 24:10 36. Michael Coakley 25:01 39. Keith Wisecup 26:54 The Chiefs travel to Troy's Invitational Saturday.  The Varsity runs at 9:00 AM and the JV race is pending depending upon whether they run in the varsity race or a separate race.  Nice Job Chiefs!

The Chieftain boys avenged several previous losses from earlier in the season by defeating CBC rivals Kenton Ridge and Northwestern in the Alliance Running CC Invitational.  The Chiefs tied Kenton Ridge placing 5th overall, but were awarded the higher place due to the tie breaker of their 6th runner freshman TJ Lamb besting KR's 6th runner.  Numerous PR's occurred as the crisp, cool 50 degree weather coupled with the fast, flat, dry ground provided the ideal condtions.  It was the best race of the season to date.  The Chiefs hope this will give them momentum heading into the 20 team invitational at Ohio Caverns Tuesday.  Results were as follows: (230 runners in race) 14th Storm Harman 17:29 22nd Ryan Dunn 17:23 30th Wes Samuels 17:57 44th Jay Clement 18:31 50th David Guajardo 18:37 88th TJ Lamb 19:38 91st Logan Carr 19:44 98th Adam Preston 19:57 145th Adam Verbsky 21:19 169th Dean Smith 21:51 171st Cayden Dement 21:55 203rd Zack Kerns 23:47 215th Michael Coackley 24:59 218th Keith Wisecup 25:59
