Re: 2010 Cross Country

NoGuts: …You forgot to mention that in XC, no “trash talk” is required. Stay positive and keep the competition on the course! Both the girls and boys’ State Champ races were exiting. Some other observations: Awesome runs by both the Champions – They both left no question as to who are the best boy a...

Re: 2010 Cross Country

Thank you, Bob! It's hard to compare times when the ILH results are so hard to find. I can't believe you manually typed in the results for two meets. Mahalo! 800: 100 to 150 M long at CORP? Minus 25 to 35 seconds to convert to a 3 mile time for last weekend's meet? I'm trying to compare the ILH to t...

Re: 2010 Cross Country

The newspaper said Kam boys and Punahou girls. The rest of the team standings were not broken out. I can't wait to see what happened. I really enjoyed the races. On the girls' side, it was great to see all the runners finally lining up on the same course. Miss Grossman was impressive and really look...

Re: 2010 Cross Country

Noguts: I am sorry that you are so insensitive to the fragile egos of adolescents. It is obtuse to claim that hurting kids with words on a blog site is "modern" and "mainland". Show some tact in your future posts.

Re: 2010 Cross Country

NoGuts: Bob also said, "... I've merely put together a list of the top times." I have found that hiding behind "word lawyering" often distracts one from seeing the big picture. I'll stick with my previous statement and I appreciate yours. I think that anyone who reads the last few posts has all the ...

Re: 2010 Cross Country

NoGuts: I read your posts and get the impression that it is very important to you to elevate your favorite runner above others. I do not think that that you are doing right by this young and talented lady when you do this. Really, you are only serving yourself, and you do not come off well to a grou...

Re: 2010 Cross Country

WOW! Someone said earlier that times rely on the competition you're running against. The Punahou girls were flying at Stanford. Congratulations to all of you! I looked at the Combined Girls list and noticed that Punahou finished 14 out of 139 high schools? Did I read that right? I have no idea about...

Re: 2010 Cross Country

Hello All....Haven't been on in a while and there was lots to read! First, I'm glad that everyone is being more positive and supportive of the kids. Second, I'm happy that Big Dog has noticed Miss Pugliese (I don't know what happened today, but I'm confident she'll be back in form next week!) Third,...

Re: 2010 Cross Country

Most of the posts here have been very reasonable. I see no problem with making predictions and comparing runners. For example, I think 800runner does a very nice job of balancing his discussion of the various runners with respecting the fact that they are teenagers...sometimes very young teenagers. ...

Re: 2010 Cross Country

WHEW...Fast and Furious this year. Personal opinion...let the kids run some races. Last year everyone was pushing Haley Grossman, and a young and unknown freshman came out of nowhere to beat her, leading her team to a narrow victory in the State Championship over our Mililani girls. That scenario co...

Re: Cross Country 2009

I think both Jenkins and Brady have a shot at beating Grossman. Both runners are young and they have been getting better with each race. Both of them won their leagues convincingly. According to the papers, Brady ran alone for most of the ILH Champ race, ran a fast 19:07 and beat the pack by 46 seco...

Re: Cross Country 2009

800: You figured out where I was going! Just over 19:00 is pretty fast! So, for fun, where would you stack Grossman and Greenwell? Their times seem slower, but I don't know the outer-island courses.
