"A University drops out of the race" - editorial by UD alumni Kyle Schmeid

"Delaware high school track & field: Fading venues may add travel to tradition" New Kevin Tresolini article

The University of Delaware's decision is not going to go away!!

                                              The audio is not great, but with headphones you can really hear AD Muir shake off the questions.
The University thought they could just send out a forward email during winter session to the members of the team stating that they were going to "downgrade" Men's XC and Track to club status, and that after a few weeks of some mild protesting it would all just go away. What they failed to recognize was that they are dealing the smartest team in the school (#1 GPA), and in my opinion the most determined and focused athletes at Delaware. They have also awoken a motivated running community, which knows better than any sport at UD how to organize events and get people to join for a cause. Just think of all the 5K's you have been proud to attend in the last few years to generously honor someone or something.

What you viewed in the video clip above are 11 of the 45 minutes that Athletic Director Bernard Muir allotted to concerned alumni, athletes, parents, and friends at the Bob Carpenter Center last Thursday. Kevin Tresolini so brilliantly wrote about it in his most recent News Journal article. In that meeting he made many references to Title IX, budget cuts, and stated quite often that it was inevitable that he was going to have to sit in this room with a group of people and explain to that group that he was going to cut their team. What he repeatedly failed to address to THIS group was how and why he decided to choose Men's XC and Track. He also did not address the brilliant question of why they would cut a team in it's 100th season. It seems rather cruel to me. Instead his answers related back to the numbers, enrollment, budget, and Title IX (even though the lawyer brought on to handle some challenging legal questions stated three times that they are currently in compliance with Title IX).

AD Muir stated at the end that the decision is final. It is unfortunate that they are not willing to acknowledge just how much this will affect the running community in Delaware for years to come. Regardless of their current stance on this decision, the fight must go on. The public needs to send a message to the University that this is not acceptable. If we don't stand up now and fight to save this sport, then it will be gone forever (just like wresting). Maybe nothing will be changed and this fight will one day be a memory, but going down without fighting is exactly what they are hoping for. The athletes on the team can only do so much, but the running community can work on their behalf.

On a side note, how did the Men's "club" track and field team respond to Muir's stance?? In my opinion they made the best possible statement they could have ever made. They went out and broke a school record the following day!!  They showed that UD's decision was not going to affect their performances. The Distance Medley team of Mike Tait, Vinny Fronczkowski, Corey Wall, and James Townsend ran 10:03.55 for 3rd overall at the New Balance Collegiate Invitational and qualified for IC4A's.  Keep in mind, this program was downsized to club status in 2008 because of Title IX, but the school was nice enough to allow any school record to still count. Too bad they won't actually recognize the club team on their website.

So how can you join this cause? 
  • You can start by joining us on February 20th for a SAVE OUR SPORT run on the campus of the University of Delaware. Flyers and more information will be posted tonight or tomorrow morning. It will be free, but there will a be donation to the "Save Our Sport" fund, which will go towards promoting our mission.
  • You can contact your local legislator to voice your opinion.
  • You can SPREAD THE WORD, and encourage others to help us
If this decision matters to you, you will join our fight and help reverse this terrible move by The University of Delaware.

And finally, on's main page they featured a link to the video, and one of the bloggers wrote something that I found to be pretty comical.

 "Be a Champion. Join the Fighting Blue Hens" (the slogan behind AD Muir during his talk)

"WOW!  Someone should have told him to turn around and read that in the middle of the conversation. If that's the athletic department's slogan, motto, or mission statement then how disgusting is it that they are telling people you can't be a champion here because we're cutting the program. Oh the irony..."

Marquis Dendy Wins Long Jump in International Competition in Japan!!

Marquis Dendy
jumped a personal best of 24' 8-3/4" in Osaka, Japan on Saturday to win the Germany-Japan-USA Trilateral Friendly Indoor Meet.  While his jump is a personal best and a monumental win for United States team, it unfortunately cannot count as a state record or make the honor roll because it was not a high school sanctioned meet. We are extremely impressed with his win, and more coverage will certainly follow!!

"Those kids don't come along very often," said Dubois, pointing out that Dendy is one of Delaware's most accomplished high school track and field athletes ever. "To be eighth in the world, at anything ..."

Glen Mills Invitational (2/3/11)

Tatnall 8th Grader Steven Garrett wins 3200M in 9:52!!!  #36 all-time
Branywine's Hakeem Harris wins 200M in 23.14!!!  #38 All-time!

Collins wins 4 events, Olivere ranked #3 in USA (Jan 30)

With just two weeks to go until the state meet, many athletes looked to the UD Invitational as an opportunity to get some quality marks and seed times. The Delaware Invitational ended up being a spectacular meet that featured many of the top marks in state history.

Glasgow junior Leshon Collins (right) led the way with an impressive 40 points (4 big wins). He received the top headline in Kevin Tresolini's News Journal article.   He took 1st in the 55M, 200M, 400M, and the long jump. It doesn't just stop there. His all-time rankings in those 4 events are now 55 (6.43 #4), 200 (22.49 #8), 400 (50.31 #9), and long jump (22-10 #10).

Archmere senior Lindsay Olivere (left)ran the #3 ranked 3200M/2 mile in the country, pulling away from field very early and taking the 1600 out in 5:18. She finished in 10:41, which ranks her #2 all-time behind Haley Pierce's 10:25 set in December. Delaware now holds 2 of the top 3 spots in the 3200/2mile in the Unites States!!

In other great action, Tatnall senior Tyler Tate just narrowly missed the state record in the 800M, running 1:56.84. He is ranked #2 all-time behind Steve Sinko's 1:56.72. Tatnall's Reagan Anderson ran the #5 ranked 800M in state history, finishing 1st in 2:17.61. Myra Wannamaker ran the #12 fastest 200 in state history, coming in 1st in 26.09.  St. Thomas More's Christina Hillman is ranked #9 all-time in the shot put, throwing with a mark of 39-1 3/4.  Padua had a very impressive win in the 4x400M, holding on in 4:12

Cape Henlopen Girls, Caesar Rodney Boys Win Henlopen Champs (1/28/11)

Both championships were decided by less than 5 points, as Cape Henlopen girls defeated Milford by 5 and Caesar Rodney boys took down Milford by just 2 at the Worcester County Rec Center in Snow Hill, MD.

The boys' championship came down to the final event, the 4x400M relay, as Caesar Rodney and Milford were tied with 136 points. In that event Caesar Rodney edged out Milford by just .2 seconds, running 3:40.8 to Milford's 3:41.0 in what was surely an epic battle. Individually, Caesar Rodney's James Capagnini won two field events, picking up first in both the high jump (5-10) and the triple jump (41-7). Dover's Brendon Barnes was also a double winner in both the 1600M (4:45.1) and the 800M (2:05.6).

On the girls' side, Cape Henlopen picked up 14 huge points in the 3200M from Ali Conning's 2nd place and Lydia Miller's 3rd to take a 9 point lead going into the 4x400M. They held on for 3rd place in the 4x400M relay to take the 5 point win.  Hannah Pepper (pictured right) was a triple winner, taking first in both the long jump (15-5.5) and triple jump (33-9.5), and anchoring the winning 4x200M relay. Milford's Molly Bliss also picked up two wins in both the 1600M (5:33.1) and 800M (2:30.1).  Sussex Tech's Brianna Hall was the final double winner of the day, winning both the 55M hurdles (9.5) and the high jump (5-0).
