A bright moment for Dark Cloud Dan


We like to call him Dark Cloud Dan, a rather dubious nickname for a great and loyal team member – junior distance runner Dan Hillman. Sadly, Dark Cloud Dan’s nickname is hard-earned, due to a variety of ailments, injuries and misfortunes that have befallen him through the years. When you think of the phrase, “Life’s not fair,” you think of Hillman and his collegiate running career to date. This is a kid who does everything right in terms of process and work ethic, but always seems to be set back by … something, anything! Well, sometimes the sun has to shine on Dark Cloud Dan, and that was Sunday. A beautiful, sunny day for a long run. But alas, Dan couldn’t make practice on this sun-splashed morning, and for once the reason for missing a run was positive and uplifting! Dan took part in a ceremony celebrating his entrance into a prestigious honor society for psychology – Psi Chi. Not only that, Dan was elected vice president of the Marist chapter of Psi Chi for the next school year. “Honored to be a part of such a close group working with faculty,’’ Dan texted. “It was a cool milestone in my psychology experience and allows for some neat opportunities for research, scholarships and conferences.” We are proud of all that Dan does; although we joke about the Dark Cloud, he is shining light in our program, and we’re proud he is part of our team.

Family day at Stony Brook

In a rare convergence at a track meet, our entire family got to spend a few minutes together. Joey, a freshman at Stony Brook, went to the dining hall to fetch his old man a cup of coffee. Natalie's holding the clipboard and James is dressed like summer, sporting his favorite Stony Brook hat. Good stuff.

Stony Brook Wolfie: Women's results and splits


A great day at Stony Brook for our women. The above photo of our very unlikely 4x400 relay tells the story of some fast racers: Jenna Robinson led off the 4x400, but the bigger news was her nearly one-minute PR in the 5,000-meter run earlier in the day. She went from never having broken 19 minutes to nearly breaking 18 minutes (18:03.11, second place). Wow! Denise Grohn anchored the 4x400, but the much better news was her monster breakthrough in the 3,000-meter run, where she qualified for ECACs and was one second off the school record, with her stellar time of 9:55.31 (third place). Wow, wow! And hey. Let’s think about THIS: Who in their right mind does a 5k/4x400 double or 3k/4x400 double? These two track beasts, that’s who. So very cool to see! The other two 4x400 legs – Kerry Gaye and Emily Burns – had strong races in their open events as well; Kerry PRed in the 1,500 and Emily had her best 800 time in quite some time. So yeah, ladies, flex those muscles, because you flexed them on the track today. Nicely done!

A few other highlights: Debbie Boerke continued her stellar outdoor season with a victory in the 400-meter hurdles in yet another ECAC qualifying mark of 1:02.23. Fallon Quigley had her best day of high jumping in quite some time, placing second with a leap of 1.55 meters, just off her school record of 1.57 meters. Overall, it was a great day in the chilly/breezy sun at Stony Brook.

Stony Brook Wolfie: Men's results and splits


The Wolfie Invitational at Stony Brook University is always one of our favorite meets of the year. We have great alumni and family support and attendance. The Stony Brook track staff members are friends of ours, and they put on a high quality meet. The weather is usually favorable. This year, an added treat was that the meet venue, the Stony Brook track, is about a three-minute walk from my son Joey’s dorm room (he’s a freshman at Stony Brook). And! My wife and two younger kids made the trek down for the morning and early afternoon to see Joey and the running Red Foxes.

On the track, it was a pretty good day too! Freshman Matthew Ronan stole the show by winning the 3,000-meter steeplechase in a 9:43.90, a whopping 10-second PR from his race at Colonial Relays two weeks ago. Matt went out hard (harder than I would have liked!) but he made it stick and ran a tremendous race. Very proud of him!

The 800-meter run provided numerous highlights for us. Junior Drew Burns just missed the IC4A mark but placed a strong third in 1:54.42. Brian Henderson (fifth place, 1:55.88) and freshman Connor St. Germain (sixth place, 1:56.73) followed closely behind in personal-best times. Freshman Cole Ziskind (2:00.25) also notched a personal-best in the event. Freshman James Moehringer ran a personal-best time in the 1,500-meter run, placing sixth in 4:01.37. He was on pace for his first ever sub-4:00, but the last lap was tough due to a strong wind. Solid effort from Moe nonetheless. Junior Eamonn Beers had a solid debut at 5,000 meters, breaking 16:00 for his first time in the longer race.

Princeton Larry Ellis meet: Women's results and splits

Coach Chuck brought two of our athletes down to Princeton tonight to chase ECAC qualifying marks in the 1,500-meter run. While Janelle Solviletti and Shea Bohan fell short of the ECAC standard of 4:34.24, both raced extremely well – Janelle won her section and Shea was third in a tightly-packed section (first three places separated by 0.63 seconds). Chuck reported that it was cold and breezy down there. I just got home from my son’s Little League game in Salt Point – it was 41 degrees and the wind was whipping. Will spring ever arrive? Geez.

What's next: Stony Brook Wolfie meet

Our next meet is Saturday at Stony Brook University for the annual Wolfie Invitational. This meet has evolved into a very strong mid-season outdoor track meet, and it is one on the schedule that we look forward to every year. This year, there is a new reason to look forward to it: Our son Joey is a freshman at Stony Brook, and his dorm is a short walk from the track, so we'll be excited to see him at the meet. Many of our current and former team members are from Long Island, and we anticipate a strong showing of families and alumni. We'll have two 10x10 pop-up tents, and our "tailgate" is usually the most prolific of the meet. Again, we look forward to it. Running events start at 11 a.m. Here's an order of events on the track:


4x100
1500M
110Hurdles

Miss the bus

My daughter missed the bus this morning. As I was pulling out of the driveway at 7:03 a.m., prepared to speed down to the bus stop at the end of our short dead-end road at Smokey and the Bandit pace, the bus pulled up on Route 9G, stopped briefly, and continued on its way. Without Natalie. I pounded my fist on the steering wheel. Dang it. Another morning I gotta schlep this girl up to the high school. This was NOT in my morning blueprint!

We started north on Route 9G, I switched the radio to NPR. Natalie didn’t go to switch it to her “hit” music stations, the ones that make me grit my teeth in angst. I started asking her about school. What tests or quizzes did she have today? How’d that geometry test go yesterday? What’s your thoughts on junior year schedule? Weighing the risks/rewards of AP, honors or regents classes. We had a good conversation. A good back and forth. Her face was not buried in her phone. My mind was not wandering to the NPR story. She was not listening to the music I don’t like. We had a conversation for a good solid 8 minutes. I dropped her off at school, wished her luck at the track meet later. As I was driving back home, I realized that in moments like these, I enjoyed taking my daughter to school. Her missing the bus threw my morning schedule into a tizzy, but that’s OK. There are blessings in everything, even a not-well-planned morning for a sometimes moody 15-year-old girl.

Soon enough, there won’t be a bus to miss. Soon enough, she may be driving herself to school. Soon enough, she’ll be off at college near or far. Soon enough, there won’t be high school courses to discuss. Soon enough, she’ll blossom into adulthood, like our soon-to-be graduating seniors here at Marist, ones who not so long ago were procrastinating 15-year-old girls themselves. And soon enough, these quiet, soft car ride conversations will fade into memory, like the bus she missed, into the rearview mirror of our lives. So next time -- maybe as soon as tomorrow! -- perhaps I won’t be pounding my fist on the steering wheel. Next time, missing the bus once more will make the beginning of my day a little bit brighter. Especially if there’s a warm coffee in the cup holder.

Boston Marathon: Nicely soaked



Very proud of our Marist alums who battled it out in epic bad conditions today in Boston. Shout-out to all of them, starting with Deedy (!), who ran tremendously well out there. Our leading ladies, Kara Lights and Kelley Posch, killed it out there as well. Kell PRed by exactly two minutes. How do you PR in this nonsense? Others listed include Marist’s Dean of Admission Kent Rinehart, who dialed back the intensity in the slop and had a great run, and long sprinter Nate Lungarini, who gamely finished the race.

Here are some notes and photos from texts …

Deedy: Everything considered, happy with how today went. Loved the race.

Kell: Easily the worst I’ve ever been a part of. Numb feet for four miles, then I warmed up. But it was thrashing rain at times and never lightened up. Nevertheless it was legendary!! I’ll never forget cresting heartbreak and a bout of monsoon rains came smashing down. It was borderline celebratory!

Kent: What a day. Winds were relentless. By far the worst conditions that I’ve experienced in my 10 marathons. Rain came down in sheets. I decided in mile 2 to make this a fun run. I had an absolute blast from Hopkinton to Boston. So much fun for my first Boston.

Bucknell Bison: Day 2 results, men and women


April continues to be an unrelenting month of weather. Oh wait. We probably shouldn’t complain. We’re not running in the Boston Marathon on Monday, which will feature strong and gusty easterly winds and pouring rain throughout the day. Geez. Sunday at Bucknell was your standard issue damp and dreary day, with temperatures in the 40s and a light drizzle or cloudy or (at the end of the day) a steady drizzle turning to rain. As a result, as you’ll see, there are no splits for individual races and just a few relay splits listed here. For you numbers geeks out there, I apologize. A few highlights from today:

--Debbie Boerke with a strong second-place finish in the 400 hurdles.
--The 800-meter women with personal- or season-best times, as well as great doubles from Denise Grohn and Shea Bohan.
--A second-place finish in the 3,200-meter relay for women.
--A major breakthrough effort for Eamonn Beers in the 3,000-meter run, and a big PR from Matthew Ronan in the same event.
--Drew Burns winning his heat in the 800-meter run in a daredevil fashion, weaving in and out of traffic over the final 200 meters of the race.
-Some good, spirited instrasquad fun in the 4x400 relays, featuring some fast splits on a lousy day for sprinting. Special shout-out to Steven Rizzo who came back to anchor the “A” team in this relay, despite having done a 10-mile long run in the morning. He plugged the hole quite nicely.

Bucknell Bison: Women's results, Saturday afternoon/evening


Another great night for the women on the outdoor magic carpet, highlighted by some amazing races under the lights in the invitational 1,500.

--Emily Burns celebrated her birthday in grand style with a school record and an ECAC qualifying mark in 4:33.35. Her section went out relatively slowly, so she had to really blitz an impressive negative-split race. It was thrilling and inspiring to watch, as you can see by the birthday love she received immediately after the race.
--Denise Grohn won her section and got the ECAC mark as well (4:33.97), with a tremendous finishing kick. Also thrilling to watch! See photo above of Denise and Emily, newly minted ECAC qualifiers. In the same race, Janelle Solviletti ran a tough and aggressive race, and a PR of 4:35.12. Also in the same section, Shea Bohan ran an equally tough race with very fast early splits, as is her style, setting up a successful section and setting the tone for our team in this event.
--And the night concluded with an ECAC qualifying mark for Hayley Collins in her 10km debut (36:16.68). A strong debut for Hayley in the 25-lap race that it among the toughest in track and field. Nicely done!
--Earlier in the meet, during the insane heat, Jordan Casey ran a strong and gutsy PR in the steeplechase. She aggressively moved up throughout the field and got a top-5 finish. Neat.

Be patient for Sunday results updates, as I will be driving a van back to Marist after the meet rather than riding on the bus.

Bucknell Bison: Men's results, Saturday afternoon/evening

It was a long, strange day and evening at Christy Mathewson Memorial Stadium, perhaps our favorite outdoor track venue of them all. The afternoon portion of the meet -- the unseeded 1,500s, the steeplechase races -- were held in roiling heat, real feel temperatures in the mid to upper 80s. Even for me, a heat connoisseur, this was a bit much this early in the spring. Then, late in the afternoon, the clouds rolled in and the temperature dropped quickly, setting up decent to good conditions for the later distance races. We had a mixed bag of results for the men, highlighted by three strong debut races at 10km by Hogue, Graham and Draney in the unseeded, and an IC4A qualifying mark by Dietrich in the late night section. The weather tomorrow is shaping up to be chilly and rainy. Be patient for Sunday results updates, as I will be driving a van back to Marist after the meet rather than riding on the bus.

Racewalker Lauren Harris heading to China!

Check out this link about freshman phenom racewalker Lauren Harris, who set a personal-best time at 10,000 meters and qualified for the World Racewalking Championships in China in early May. Was going to post about this on Sunday but I couldn't find the official results. We are so proud of Lauren, as she continues to represent Marist on a national and now international stage. Very, very cool.

Colonial Relays: Wrapping it up


Here are the compiled and complete results from three days of competition at Colonial, one of our favorite meets of the year. Of course! Our mood was soured a bit on Saturday due to the horrendous weather that saw several teams fleeing Williamsburg for home and resulted in a condensed schedule (not to mention a lot of umbrellas and raw hands, feet and everything else). This meet provides us with a little bit of everything. But again, because it’s outside, it’s definitely weather dependent. We can usually count on favorable weather down there most years. Saturday was an anomaly. The weather was better back in Poughkeepsie than it was in Williamsburg. On to the next: Bucknell, which Coach Chuck has rightly dubbed our outdoor magic carpet. Hopefully, it will live up to that billing, next Saturday and Sunday. The awesome photo above is of Alyssa Lafave during her amazing debut in the 3,000 steeplechase on Friday afternoon. Thanks to Jess Howe for sharing this photo.

Colonial Relays, Saturday: Women's results, splits and 4x1500 school record!

The dismal weather did not stop our vaunted 4x1500 relay team from obliterating last year's school record by 10 seconds. Our team placed second in the meet and cracked the 19-minute barrier for the first time. We are so glad that the bad weather did not deter this deserving relay from setting the new school standard.

Colonial Relays, Saturday: Men's results and splits

How bad was the weather today? Entire TEAMS bolted town and didn't compete in the relay portion of the Colonial Relays. It was cold, windy and rainy. Not what you'd expect for Williamsburg in the spring. But alas! It is what it is. We stayed and we got our work in. Times were unspectacular at best. Here's hoping for better weather moving forward. Thanks to Jess Howe for sharing this photo of Drew Burns in the 4x1500 relay, and thanks to Kennedy and Riley for helping with the splits in the rain.

Colonial Relays, Friday: Women's results and splits

Lots of highlights for the women today:

--Danisha Craig came within .03 of the school record in the 100-meter dash, an event she rarely runs. Great job!
--Debbie Boerke got us on the board with a scoring place in the 400-meter hurdles.
--Personal- or season-best times in the 1,500 for Maria Smith, Kerry Gaye, Jordan Casey.
--An incredibly strong a positive debut at the 3km steeple for Alyssa Lafave. And when we say debut, we mean the first time she's ever raced the steeple. Alyssa shows a lot of promise in this event.

Colonial Relays, Friday: Men's results and splits

A solid day of competition on a windy and warm afternoon and early evening. Big highlights included freshman Matthew Ronan with an outstanding collegiate steeplechase debut and an 8-second PR, and Alex Hogue with a truly bizarrely run 15-second PR in the 5km. Rizz (1500) and Stack (5km) came close to PR times as well. Note: It will not be sunny and warm tomorrow.
