  • Kevin Salvano: Summer Training Blog

    Buffalo Grove junior Kevin Salvano burst onto the Illinois distance running hierarchy last year during the cross country campaign and emerged as one of the top runners in the Mid-Suburban League. Salvano would go on to place 20th place in the 3A state cross country state championship. After a solid track season that netted a state appearance and a 9:24 personal best, Salvano is ready for bigger and better things this fall. Kevin was kind to take some time out of his busy running schedule to share his summer running diary.

  • Tony's Take 15: Transition From Track To Cross Country

    The summer of 2014 has been moving at such a steady pace that I have started to notice the “back to school” clothing ads. Uh oh…

  • Parent Blog: Gary Chappel's Summer Thoughts

    Greetings to you all.  My name is Gary Chappel.  I am a former high school track and cross country athlete from long ago (Alton High, class of 1981!)  Though I still believe I had the talent to be an elite runner, I never quite made it there.  I ended high school with personal bests of 9:18, 4:21 and 2:00.  I competed in five state championships (3 track and 2 cross country) and never won a medal.

  • Coach's Summer Series Blog: My City Under Siege

    My city is in a crisis right now. This violence epidemic has been crazy for the past few years. Babies and all types of innocent people have been taken because of the choices that some misguided young men in our community make on a regular basis. Instead of handling their problems by talking it out or even boxing it out, they decide to hide behind bullets. This choice has devastating effects as it normally ends with lives lost and people put in jail (which ends up affecting multiple families because it’s mostly black men are dead AND in jail). At the rate we are going we won’t have many black men left in 20 years.  A lot will be dead and a good majority of the ones alive will be in jail if we keep heading down this path.

  • Tony's Take 14: Chicago is Iraq #Chiraq

    Chicago is a well known city world class city with many names: “Chi-Town”, “Chi-City”, “The Chi”, “The Windy City”, or “Second City.” Here is the latest offering that seems more fitting: “Chi-raq.” Whatever you decide to call the nation's third largest city, just know that it is in a CRISIS.

  • Shamier Little: The First Season Aftermath

    Ascending from the bottom of the scrap heap to the top of the mountain is usually a slow grind that most superstar athletes take.  Back in 2010 at the Midwest Prep Invite in Indianapolis, Evanston High School girls coach Fenton Gunter was asked a question at the end of the meet about the then freshman Shamier Little: “hey coach who is that girl [Shamier] Little from [Chicago] Lindblom?” Coach Gunter responded: “shoot I don’t know. I was going to ask you… she is a bad girl.”

  • Tony's Take 14: Summer Fling

    A Summer Fling is simply a relationship over the summer that is free of hassle and drama (in most cases)… I am not a relationship counselor so I will not go into detail of what thoughts that some of you may have about the wording that could be a correlation somewhere else.

  • Tony's Take 13: Soccer Is Where It All Began

    “Another day, another dollar” is a phase that’s often used to emphasize an ordinary day. The summer vacation after two weeks in has just become that. Aside from some regional AAU, USATF Youth, local running club road races, or summer cross country training nothing much has been going on.
