    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.

I’m always approached by runners and coaches from various schools across the state when I am at meets. The common question

    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

    The IHSA posted the School Classifications for the 2018-2019 School year on June 13. One notable change in the Track & Field Classifications was the omission of the East St. Louis-Senior Boys team. The Flyers were not allowed to compete at the 2018 Boys State Track & Field Championships at the end of May due to the incident that postponed the Southwest Conference Boys Meet. When the classifications were initially posted, East St. Louis-Senior’s Girls team was assigned to Class 2A, but the
