    Put Your Hand on Seven - 2018 Update
    York High School announced the retirement of Cross Country Coach Joe Newton in 2016. It was a bittersweet year. In his 56 years as the York Head Coach, his teams won 28 state championships. It is a number that won't be reached in this cross country crazy state. The reason the interest is so big is because of what Mr. Newton did at this high school in Elmhurst, Illinois. I’m always approached by runners and coaches from various schools across the state when I am at meets. The common question

    20 Conference Meets to Watch in Illinois
    By Michael Newman [email protected] Before we get to the state series leading to the IHSA State Meet on November 3, bragging rights will need to be settled in conference meets across the state. For some teams, it will be a meet to get out of it safely before we head to next week’s regional meets. For other teams, it will mean a big step up point for the hopes that they have and dream about to get to Detweiller Park in November. We could not write about every meet across the state. What we

The weather did not. Strong 20 to 25 MPH South/Southwest winds slowed the races down on the Naperville North High School Campus course.

    Shilgalis finds cure for sickness with win at Peoria
    Downers Grove South win 3A Boys; Jortberg, Gordon wins Girls races; By Michael Newman [email protected] Peoria, Ill – The XC Gods looked over Detweiller Park Saturday morning and drenched the park with no wind, temperatures in the 50’s, and a rock-hard fast course. It was an invitation to all competing at the Peoria High School Invitational to run fast times. Runners in the four races accepted that invitation. That included Naperville Central’s Thomas Shilgalis in the 3A Boys race.

    Yorkville leads Illinois team sweep at Roy Griak Invitational
    By Michael Newman [email protected] If Illinois teams had the goal of making a national statement in Minnesota at the Roy Griak Invitational on Saturday, you could pretty much say that about what Yorkville, Naperville North, and Downers Grove South achieved. They came. They saw. They conquered. The Yorkville Girls team looked strong in capturing the Gold Division title with 104 points to lead a top three Illinois team sweep. Naperville North was only nine points back in second (113 points)

    Methner breaks course record in Palatine Invitational win
    Fitzpatrick just misses course record in her win; Hersey, Lyons Township win team titles By Michael Newman [email protected] Palatine, Illinois – It did not take long for Hersey’s Josh Methner to make his move at Saturday’s Palatine Invitational Boys Varsity race. In his last race in Peoria on September 15, weather conditions dictated that he wait until the last moment to go. Nearly perfect running conditions at Palatine’s Deer Grove East Forest Preserve changed that idea. “I really did not

    Newms Notes - The Process of a Preview
    My high school cross-country and track coach Joe Newton (pictured, 1979) was a stickler for the detail starting with the way the practices were run and the detail we traveled through the season. After my senior year, we were driving back from Peoria and he had me looking through the results asking about which runners would be coming back for the 1980 season. An hour after the season was over, he was already looking ahead. Process of a Preview is an extension of that looking at the detail I use
