Harris Wins Three for Branch Boys Jim McGrath Mar 8, 2017

In a 20-minute span, Micaiah Harris shocked the crowd at Boo Williams, as he won both the 6A 55-meter hurdles (7.37) and open 55 (6.41). While the races totaled only 110 meters, the distance he has traveled, away from a shadow cast over him, has been much greater.

Do You Know Who Boo (Williams) Is? Jim McGrath Mar 4, 2017

On Friday afternoon, I decided to give a short, impromptu quiz to several of the coaches and co-workers at the Boo Williams Sportsplex. It wasn’t a tough test; in fact, it was only one question. To my surprise and amusement, many of the test takers failed.

Banks Wins 6A High Jump With State-Record Leap Jim McGrath Feb 28, 2017

Osbourn Park's Sydney Banks continued a phenomenal sophomore season on Friday afternoon with a leap for the record books.

Unfair False Start or Unfair False Start Enforcement? Nolan Jez Feb 27, 2017

This weekend in the seeded Boys 6A 1000m race a bizarre thing happened, Peter Smith (Oscar Smith) was called for a false start and subsequently disqualified. Now we will be transparent, at the time watching the race live, about 10 feet away, we though it was completely the right call. It was also a somewhat refreshing thing to see a false start in a distance race but that really got us thinking... was this a fair false start or a fair enforcement of the rule.

Don't Let Them Fool You, You Need To Watch Out For These 6 Athletes! Nolan Jez Feb 16, 2017

The awesome thing about the post-season is finally getting to see athletes show their true potential. It is common practice today to save athletes until the post-season and to solely focus on training after just one meet where the athlete hits the auto-standard. That combined with coaches hiding their athletes from the spotlight makes for a big coming out party each year at the State Championships.
