Highlights, coverage, and results from the top meets across the country on the weekend of December 20th.
In May of 2010, two runners ran step-for-step for 7 1/2 laps with a mad dash to a finish that separated them by two tenths of a second. One would go on to become a top UNC Tarheel and the other would launch herself on a course that would make her a junior world champion in July 2014. It's Elastic Girl versus the Flipper, revisited, and the tale of the big decisions they battled over.

Breakdown of Girls' Varsity Races
The modest Bronxville sophomore keeps looking to PR
Bronxville’s Mary Cain finished second in the 1,500 meters at the USA Junior Championships Sunday in Eugene, Ore., then found out that she is too young to compete at the Pan Am Games next month and also too young to compete at the World Youth Championships this summer, effecting ending the most proflic freshman campaign of any runner to put on spikes in New York State.
The Fast Times Relays is known as a meet geared for relays to come in with fresh legs and produce, well, fast times. But Middletown senior Mel Mosley turned in an iron horse performance that made it no wonder why he’ll be the cornerstone of the freshman recruiting class of Southern University in Louisiana.
Bronxville freshman Mary Cain added another race to an incredible string of performances Friday night when she won the 3,000 meters at the Warwick Friendship Invitational in 9:28.6.
Bronxville’s Mary Cain is just a freshman. By now, she’s achieved almost every time-goal she’s ever set for her high school career. Now she wants to find where her limits are, because it’s safe to say at this point that no one knows.
Track Chat with Ciarra Brewer, James Logan CA, who boasts a 43-04.25 PR for the Triple Jump, good for US#7 All-Time.

The Eastern States Championship race at the Manhattan Invitational is meant to bring together some of the best teams in the country on a course considered a benchmark for evaluating distance runners. With that said, New York proved again to be one of the most competitive states in the US in cross country.
KINGS PARK – It’s safe to say that no one knew what St. Anthony’s had when the season started. The Friars graduated four of their top seven runners from last year and most this year’s squad would be making their varsity debut.
KINGS PARK – Bronxville coach Jim Mitchell only yells during races. The rest of the time he’s pretty even. He won’t berate a runner that fails. Instead he might coddle only a little, with a simple, “It’s okay.”
These rankings were calculated by scoring the rankings as a meet. We scored 20 deep for individuals and 20 deep for relays. For example, for individuals 1st place received 20 points for their team, on down to 1 point for 20th place.
KINGS PARK – Bronxville coach Jim Mitchell didn’t panic when his star runner, Henrietta Miers, needed to sit this one out. Miers had strep throat needed the week off and Mitchell chose to look on the bright side.
Bronxville is a very small, very affluent community in southern Westchester County, nestled between Mt. Vernon, Yonkers, and New Rochelle, all very urban areas. The town consists of a cummuter train station, a movie theatre, numerous restraurants and coffee shops, and some of the most beautiful homes in the country.
WHITE PLAINS – Suffern’s Shelby Greany has said for months that she would run her races her way. She wouldn’t wait. She wouldn’t be a reactionary runner.
Jermaine Brown trotted across the finish line after easing down the home stretch while peaking at the clock. It was a smooth run, an easy run. Then the time popped up – 21.26 seconds, a New York State record while running the top qualifying top in the 200-meter semifinals.
The best of NY State come together at Cornell University this weekend for the NY State Federation Championships. The best athletes from the CHSAA, PSAL, AIS, and NYSPHSAA will battle for the state championships.
This week's How They Train features Bronxville's Caitlin Hudson. How They Train is designed to give a in-depth of how runners just like who train around the state. Since there's no uniform formula we decided to find out yours.
KINGS PARK – Nick Hughes turned the corner for the last 200 meters at Sunken Meadow Park glued to Port Washington’s Marco Bertolotti’s shoulder. They weren’t just looked to out-kick each other. Someone was going to break.
NEW YORK – At nearly every cross country practice around the country there are coaches preaching to kids about pack-running, praying that they work off each other like they are tied together by some invisible rope. Pretty much the way the Bronxville girls looked.
ArmoryTtack.com's Tim Fulton and Chris Hunt head to the famed Van Cortlandt Park to see what they would find on a Wednesday morning. As locals know all to well, there is ALWAYS something going on at "Vanny".

Story and photos by Tim Fulton NEW ROCHELLE - Coach Cap might look a little younger come Monday. The long time New Rochelle track and field coach, perhaps best known for making great hurdlers, has a new 400m hurdler on his hands. All American Elizabeth Mott, who placed 4th in the 400m at the National Scholastic Indoor Championships in 54.81, setting a new Section 1 Record in the process, is now running the longer hurdle race. Coach Capellan, or “Cap” as most of his athletes and colleagues call him, bet Mott that if she could break 66 seconds her first time in the event, he’d shave his mustache. From the sound of the gun, it was never in doubt. FULL ARTICLE HERE Photo Gallery Here
