Hamline Elite Meet Live Coverage ...

That completes our Hamline Elite Meet coverage on Down the Backstretch. Unlike previous years, we were not able to produce our own comprehensive running event video this year. But, if you know of video from the meet posted on YouTube or other video-sharing sites, let us know -- e-mail cmahler22 [AT] yahoo [DOT] com. We'll compile links to all the action.

Good night ... and thanks for following the Elite Meet on DtB!
