  • 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.

  • USATF Youth Nationals Review/Recap 1

    Abe Jones loves his summer track . He loves it so much that he combined his Indiana and Illinois elite and developmental squads into one that competed over the weekend at Indiana University in the Youth Nationals. "We brought alot of kids here to get them exposed to a quality track meet... mostly to develop athletes."

  • Tony's Take #12: Summer Relaxion, Summer Track

    It is officially the summer solstice and that means down time for many high school teachers/teachers. It is time for them to catch up with their family and friends- much of their precious time was consumed in the classrooms and on the athletic fields during the course of nine or ten months out of the calendar year.
