Hawthorne Christmas Party

About the only negative thing I can say about Shelby Hawthorne is that she did not start her annual team Christmas party until after I graduated!  Here are the photos from this year's celebration.

District 3 Regional from 1974

Back when I was in school (mid-80s) we were still divided into districts in XC instead of regions.  We were the largest (when I ran the race, we typically had 250 in the race) in the country.  Only 180 people ran in the NCAA race (as opposed to 240 today).  Each district's number of teams were decided beforehand (we had the most with four).  Our district could have up to 5 individuals as long as they were in the top 15 overall.  At any rate, thanks to Ed Lull for the heads up on this amazing footage.  You will notice a number of great shots of W&M runners. Go here to see the race and a number of closeups of W&M runners.  The footage actually is quite clear. The XC team was 4th (best showing ever) in 1973, but did not make it in 1974.  Thanks to Randy and Shelby Hawkthorne for identifying many of the runners: Reggie Clark #359,  John Greenplate #385, Gene Schultz #371, Christophe :Tophe” Tulou, George Baquis #358, and Tim Cook # 381 and Brendan Gallaher #374.

Lewis Woodard Interview

Thanks to all of you for watching these interviews which have literally gotten hundreds of hits.  Above is senior Lewis Woodard who discusses the maturity and the confidence of the team. You will also note that we finally kicked the echo problem!

Alumni Coaches

As a long time former coach, I know how much my W&M coach had an impact on me joining that fraternity.  Well apparently the coaches coming out of W&M are continuing as All-Americans Ian Fitzgerald is at Duquesne University and Sean Graham is at American.  As you might know, Steve Walsh was coached by former W&M coach Harry Groves who left W&M to go to Penn State.

Men Ranked 16th

As I said a week ago, the Southeast Conference had six team ranked 16 to 23 and all of them, save UNC, have now qualified for the NCAA meet.  The bottom line is that while we are on the top of our conference, we have not yet moved up substantially in the national rankings and are now 16th.  On the other hand, it wasn't even close at regionals, so look for a move up at the NCAA meet, esp. since W&M traditionally moves up when they hit the 10K part of the season.

We Are on Twitter

For many Saturdays, Steve Walsh and his predecessor Alex Gibby have called me with updates so I could get them on this page ASAP.  Well now, you can get even quicker updates.  If you go to Twitter and type in "wmxctf" you will be able to get real time updates from meets.  This coming Monday, for example, if you can't watch the race live on this site, you can get a Twitter feed straight to your phone and see how our team does at the NCAA meet right away.

Six Make All Region Team

If you go here, you will see that six athletes made the all region team:
Chas Gillespie, Zach Gates, Josh Hardin, Lewis Woodward, Tom Burke, Elaina Balouris

NCAA Teams Announced

The NCAA just announced the teams going to nationals.  Amazingly SIX teams from our Southeast Region are going (W&M, Duke, Louisville, UVA, Richmond and NC State).  The only glaring omission is UNC that was ranked one spot ahead of us two weeks ago, but fell apart at Regionals and finished 9th.


Here is the official NCAA meet site. The men are running at 12:48 on November 22nd. The meet will be shown live here and if you come back on the 22nd, I will have it in a separate window on this page.  Interviews later this week.

Who is Going to the NCAA Meet

Track and Field Videos on Flotrack

or at least this is who Flotrack thinks is going for the men's teams. They predict that SIX teams will make it from the Southeast Region. That would be more than I have ever seen if it holds up.

Men's Finish

As the narrator of this clip says, "William and Mary, William and Mary, William and Mary.  They just dominated!"  Here is the start and a race clip at 1.5 miles, the 5K mark and the 7K.

Men Win Regionals!

New coach, same result!  As usual the men start slow and end BIG which is especially amazing after losing all three of their All-Americans from last season.   After being ranked no higher than 4th all fall in the region, the men just beat Duke to win the region and automatically qualify for the NCAA meet. If my math is right, this is the 15th straight time the men have gone to the national champs.  W&M's #1 all season, Chas Gillespie, was only 12th, but the top five only had a 30 second spread between them.  Here are the full results.  I'll have more later and will put up the live feed of the men's race next Monday.

Women 9th at Regionals

The women moved up two places from their regional ranking to finish 9th in the region.  Frosh Elaina Balouris was 23rd.  All five of the top women are returning next year, so look for them to move up.

Men 19th in Country, 3rd in District

The men have risen (barely) to 19th and 3rd in the district. Remember that only two teams automatically go to nationals in the district.  Right now five schools in the district are clumped between 18 to 23.  Likely 4 of the five will go to the NCAA meet, but one certainly will not.  As a point of comparison, the men were ranked 8th at the point a year ago.

Men 1st, Women 2nd at CAA

The men (holding out some of their runners) won their elevenths straight CAA meet w. 17 points while the women were second to JMU w. a score of 28-46 (with two frosh running in the top three for us).

Zach Gates claimed the individual crown in 24:16, leading a Tribe sweep of the top three places. Redshirt-freshman Josh Hardin finished second, two seconds back, andTom Burke was third in 24:20. Four more Green and Gold harriers also earned all-conference honors by finishing among the top-12, including redshirt-sophomores Alex McGrath and Peter Dorrell fifth and sixth in 24:30 and 24:32 More

Elaina Balouris led the Tribe with her third-place effort in 20:50. Balouris was only one second behind the second-place finisher, and is the first freshman named All-CAA for W&M since 2008. Classmate Kathleen Lautzenheiser was also named all-conference, taking seventh in 21:19. Senior Betsy Graney  earned her second All-CAA nod with a time of 21:35 and a ninth-place finish. Just missing the top-12 was junior Avery Mattingly 13th in 21:54, and redshirt-freshman Megan Fitzpatrick. More

Ex-W&M Runners in the News This Week

Two days ago, my senior roommate senior Running Times writer, Scott Douglas '86, broke the story that Ryan Hall was leaving his training group and coach at Mammoth Lakes, CA.  Now, Matt Lane '00 (who is being added to the W&M Hall of Fame on April 2nd at our Colonial Relays reunion) just spoke with Let' and used his legal knowledge to interpret the rules to say that LaShawn Merritt will not be able to run the '12 Olympics.

Men 20th in NCAA Poll

The men moved up six places in the NCAA coaches poll after the Pre-Nats meet.  They, though, remain 4th in the Southeast Region.  Our region has two automatic bids and would need (it has happened many times in the past) an at-large bid to go to the NCAA meet.  That being said, WM's men are used to starting low in the polls and moving up.  They were not in the top ten until they finished 5th last year, for example. The women, were and remain at the 11th slot.

A Conversation With Coach Walsh
Click here to read a conversational interview with new men's and women's XC coach, Steve Walsh.

Gibby Recognized As 2010 Coach of the Year
Alex Gibby '97, now taking up a new challenge as track and field coach at the University of Michigan, led the Tribe to conference titles and the NCAA championships in cross country in each of his seven years with his alma mater. Last season, the cross country team was ranked in the national top 10 and finished fifth at the NCAAs. Three runners were named All-Americans as the team made their best showing since 1973.
“I really enjoyed the time I had at William and Mary,” says Gibby. “I feel really fortunate that I had the opportunity to coach and grow there. There’s a lineage of success that’s established and that’s what you look for in an epitaph: You took a good tradition and made it better.”
For his performance last year he was chosen as the W&M Coach of the Year.

Men/Women Start XC Season
With a new coach, we are going to do things a bit differently. You will soon be seeing more video in the fall and each race Coach Walsh will provide a write-up for this site. The first meet was yesterday at the University of Richmond. You can see Coach Walsh's write-up here. Full results

PreSeason Poll
Considering all but two of the top seven are back, the pre-season coaches poll putting W&M at 28th is a little surprising. Nonetheless, I can't remember ever having W&M in the top 15 or higher for the first half season polls. The women are ranked 14th and the men 5th in the Southeast regional poll.

W&M XC Team Is "One to Watch This Fall"
Okay, so this Running Times article does not rank any team, but rather list three contenders and five others "to watch" on the men's side. Now departed Coach Gibby thought the team would easily return to the top ten this fall and that should not change with our new coach. The first coaches' association poll comes out on the 30th of August. The question for the women will be can they get back to the NCAA meet after not being there for a number of years. Walsh will be the first coach ever (at least in my memory) to coach both XC teams.

Moran Interview after USATF Runner-Up Race

Shelby Hayes Runs 4:43

Thanks to the comment a few posts ago that the daughter of Neal Hayes '83 finished second at the NY Dream Mile on June 14th in 4:43. The time is a Florida state record for the upcoming athlete who will attend the University of Florida in the fall. Above is an interview she had just before the race.
Moran Finished 2nd at 10K
Ed Moran was leading in the 10K at the USATF meet until 600 meters to go when he was passed by eventual winner Galan Rupp. Moran ran 29:03 to Rupp's 28:59.

USATF Meet is Live on the Internet
At least that is what it says on their website and will include interviews. My hunch is that the bigger races will be on ESPN first, but if you want to see Ed Moran in the 10K (tonight 8:55 MST) then you can probably see it here or above.

Sam Mattis Continues to Roll
One of my very favorite teammates was Marlon Mattis '85 who is still #3 on the hammer list, so please endulge me as I write about his son Sam Mattis.
