All you need to know about Saturday's big Carlisle Invitational!
The afternoon of October 20, 1981, was sunny and breezy, 60 degrees at Montgomery County Community College. The teenager out there running was a future two-time Olympic 800-meter medalist - the best middle-distance runner this area has ever produced. This 17-year-old had a resting heart rate that day of 62. Her left foot hurt her sometimes in the front "near the toes," but only when she walked, not running. (Could it have been her Adidas LA trainers?) (via www.philly.com)

It was a great 2011-2012 in both cross country and track across the Keystone State. Many of our seniors will soon be on their way to start their college careers both athletically and academically... so we wanted to salute them one more time in this special feature.
Webster’s defines it as the practical knowledge, skill, or practice derived from direct observation of, or participation in, events or in a particular activity. We can be fairly sure Paul Vandegrift never met this Webster cat personally, but rest assured, the Upper Dublin coach is a huge proponent of the value of said experience after his team’s first-ever trip to the state cross country championships a year ago.
Upper Dublin is the AAA boys best shot at denying North Penn a 2nd straight XC title, but other teams are lurking. Perkiomen Valley senior Jimmy Tarsnane is the top-returner from last year with a 8th place finish. Brad Miles, a North Penn junior, has run a 15:24 5k and should have a shot of finishing in the top-3 as he leads North Penn on another quest to stand atop the podium.
Photo: Sun Valley's Gina Procaccio leading he first 100m of the state XC Champs in 1979 at Fort Indiantown Gap, when the class of '82 were sophomores. Publisher's Note: The PA girls' class of 2008 is special. Two Foot Locker finalists as juniors. An 800 runner who medals at states in cross country, but also competes on the national stage against world class talent as a junior in the two-lapper. Pretty rare you say? Actually, it is. But it was a PA class of girls in 1982 who wrote the record books on those events, and whose records and accomplishments this current class is chasing. In this three-part series by Neely Spence (yes, that Neely Spence), she'll introduce you to this talented group, tell you about their accomplishments, and give you some perspective on why those marks still stand. From Part Three: After High School – “College kind of killed my spirit; in high school I had the whole package… the coach, the team, the support. In college, I also had a great coach, but I really didn’t feel the same as I did in high school. Everyone on my team was great individually, but we never really worked together, we just competed.” From Part Two: Their Senior Year – The shock from that victory was the impetus that propelled her training the next few weeks with one goal in mind for her first national showing. “ I wanted to win Kinney,” said Lois Brommer after her then all time best 17:04.7 at Van Cortlandt Park. (now all time #2). From Part One: The Early Years – “She had one foot in High School and one in the world. All her training was based on a long-term scale. We were thinking not this race or even next year… eight years from now!” - Jack Fuery, Kim Gallagher's Upper Dublin coach.
The Upper Dublin girls were nine-point winners over Wissahickon behind the 18:54 by junior Heath Calisto, and the Wissahickon boys took care of business, taking five of the top six spots.
LaSalle was on home ground at the Triple Threat race at Belmont Plateau. The unique 2K, 3K 5K format makes teams put their best runners in specific races. In the varsity girls race, it was Upper Dublin winning in 2:01.47 by just over a minute.
A US#11 Long Jump from Great Valley\'s Janessa Murphy. More standout performances from the girls of West Catholic. And some fast times in the 3000 and DMR.
Upper Dublin middle distance/distance talent Michael Palmisano will study and compete at Princeton University. Palmisano most recently contributed the pace that led to two top all-time 800's, and anchored the winning DMR at the PTFCA Indoor State Championships.
