Photo by Victah Sailor - PhotoRun.net Running stride for stride with Olympic Gold medalist Maria Mutola could have been unnerving for recent Easton grad Chanelle Price. After all, it was 650 meters into the biggest 800 of her young career, and Price had been in her trademark position since the cut-in off the waterfall start – the lead. "It was a little nerve-wracking" Price said this week a few days after her US#2 all-time 2:01.61 at the Prefontaine Classic. But Price didn't back down, and stayed with Mutola through much of the final curve. It was the furthest Price had gone with the lead in a race with this level of competition. In last year's USATF Championships, where Price raced all three rounds before placing 7th in the finals... she had been caught and passed at the 600 meter mark.

Junior prep stars Chanelle Price of Easton, and Ryann Krais of Methacton, have been named to the World Youth USA Team that will compete from July 11-15 in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

Track people, especially the ones over a certain undisclosed age, tend to compare athletes to other athletes they have either heard about or seen perform. That's a good thing. That's what makes us track people. But when you consider the thousands who participate from year to year, there are relatively few legends. One such legend is Upper Dublin's Kim Gallagher.
Despite their strong showings at the 100th Millrose Games on February 2nd, Boyertown senior Jason Weller and Easton junior Chanelle Price don't see themselves as milers. But they're getting to that point. Quickly. (Photos of Jason Weller and Chanelle Price by Maroon News of NJ)

There\'s a trend here. 2:08.72... 2:08.47... 2:07.71... 2:06.23. And it\'s a trend that is likely to continue, if Easton sophomore Chanelle Price has any say in the matter. (Photo courtesy of Victor Sailor, www.PhotoRun.NET)
In their second matchup in four days, Easton again came out on top. In a quad meet that included Whitehall and Bethlehem Catholic, Easton scored 26 to Parkland\'s 29 behind the 19:26 by their new team leader, Chanelle Price. Easton and Parkland took ten of the first 11 places. The Parkland boys were ten points better than Easton, but Easton\'s Colin Brett won the individual race in 16:35.
For the second week in a row, the girls of Easton, behind an 800 runner in her first season in cross country, beat a team with a great program. No, make that several teams with great programs.
The #10 team in the Northeast in the pre-season NTN rankings, Allentown Central Catholic, was upset at the 9/3 Northampton Invitational by Easton. As one coach observed, \"Price changes XC in AAA in PA.\"...
Easton star middle distance runner Chanelle Price - a rising sophomore - posted the fastest qualifier of the meet in the 800 prelims... and Charelise Davis got the last Young Women\'s spot in the 200 finals, just .02 ahead of Laurel Highland\'s Breehana Jacobs.
It was bound to happen, and it has. Lindsay Regan, the talented Easton pole-vaulter, now owns the PA outdoor state record to go along with her indoor mark - and, best of all, it\'s a PR.
Observers of the 800 took notice of Chanelle Price of Easton when she ran so well during the indoor season. She\'s getting better.
Let\'s face it, teams and individuals are taking the indoor season more seriously than ever. As evidence, there were an astounding eight STATE records set this season in Pennsylvania. A few were even set and re-set by the individuals and teams several times.
Folllowing official review, Lindsey Regan\'s new Indoor State Pole Vault Record really is 13-00.
Lindsey Regan, the Easton junior, upped her state-leading pole vault height to 12-06 at the annual Pole Vault Summit held in Las Vegas, Nevada. Eric Sparks, Hickory, cleared 15-02 to lead the PA boys. Amber Gaffey of Susquehanna Community, cleared 10-06, and Julia Green, Emmaus was over at 10-02. Chartiers Houston\'s Buddy Rose set a PR at 13-10. Pennridge\'s Scott Sherwood cleared 13-08, while State College\'s Pat Campolongo was good over 13-02.
Central Dauphin senior Ryan Whiting was already #1 in the US, but with a throw of 68-09.50 at the Kutztown Invitational, he becomes one of the top four prep indoor shot putters of all time. And only three other athletes have better performances. And the 200 has a new state leader. More...
