Dr. Brian Damhoff Blog Speaks: Meet The Jumpers Of Plainfield North Brian Damhoff Apr 2, 2015

The track and field season is rolling along. It is hard to believe that the indoor season is already over. In one of our last indoor meets, we made the trip down south to Charleston and let me tell you, since I've seen the blue track, I've got the fever! All I can think about is that gorgeous blue track and doing whatever it takes to get my athletes down there.

Dr. Brian Damhoff Blog Speaks: Rivals Coming Together Brian Damhoff Nov 5, 2014

On Saturday at the sectional meet at Chicago Marist something magical happened. However, this had nothing to do with the sectional race. In fact, it was after the race when everyone had left and gone home. By chance, all that was left were two teams, the coaching staffs and some very dedicated parents. The two teams, Plainfield North and Plainfield South, would be thought of as cross country rivals but on this day. Much like South, our entire team continues to train during the cross country “postseason” and it is important to give these kids opportunities to still compete and set PR’s. We ran a time trial at regionals and have done a few time trials at practice as well. We happened to run our time trials at the same time as Plainfield South after the sectional race on Saturday.

I’ve coached high school track and field for five seasons now, one at Plainfield North, three at Parkway West in Ballwin, MO and one at Fulton High School in Fulton, IL.

Normal West Boys Invitational Preview Tony Jones Feb 27, 2014

Last weekend Principia College hosted a low-key invite with Troy (Triad) High School that turned out to be a solid indoor co-ed affair.  In that meet, there were two all-time records set in the field events. Lena Giger (Sr., Highland) broke the girls mark in the shot put with an enormous 49-9 effort.  On the boys side, it was Ja’Mari Ward of Cahokia who took matters a step further in the triple jump.  Ward broke the national sophomore record with an unbelievable 50-2.50 leap.
