4A boys, take two Alan Versaw May 12, 2014

So far as 4A boys are concerned, all that's left to do is to run the state meet. And, that's a lot to look forward to, as the 4A boys race has tightened up considerably since we last visited the classification.

Time to Ring the Liberty Bell! Alan Versaw Sep 15, 2011

The biggest invitational of the Colorado season is nearly upon us. In Colorado, and the entire Rocky Mountain region, the Liberty Bell Invitational needs no introduction. Some coaches love it, some coaches avoid it like the plague, but its presence carries a weight no other meet in the state can rival. As we do every year, we expect to see some big things tomorrow. And this year, the weather looks to be almost as ideal as last year was dreadful. There will be no 90-degree race time temperatures this year.

NXN-SW, The Week in Review Alan Versaw Sep 14, 2011

Week Four Summary Alan Versaw Sep 21, 2008
