Heather Kampf 3rd in 800; Jaret Carpenter Runs 4:05.73 in Dream Mile; Hasz Twins 7th&8th in Dream 1500
Sharpened up this weekend by racing an 800m at the @adidasboostbostongames, and was pretty darn pleased to place 3rd, in 2:00.55 (just a half second off my lifetime PR)! Everything seems to be coming into place quite nicely, and I just can't say enough how grateful I am to be healthy, confident, and having fun going into the Trials. I had the added bonus of meeting some studly future Gophers, Megan and Bethany Hasz, who were out there to race the #dream1500!! Nothing great is accomplished alone- thanks as always to my big time supporters, @asics, @teamusamn, @nuunhydration, @soundprobiotics, @pickybars, and @flynnsports, and God above for abundantly blessing my life.

Following his pre-race plan of running 62 second laps for the 1600 Carpenter completed the 3200/1600 double, slowing to 63s on the last two laps to post a winning time of 4:10.89. It was the most comfortable effort he's had this year on the Hamline track, having run under nine minutes for 3200 at the Elite Meet and then repeating the 3200 win on the opening day of the MSHSL championships in hot, humid conditions in 9:10.46.
Both were solo efforts where Carpenter took off early and was never threatened. Stillwater's Eli Krahn, who did the 3200/1600 double as a freshman and sophomore in 2013-14, said that Carpenter was able to dominate this year because he could adapt to any pace. Going hard from the beginning. Throwing in 60 second laps during the middle of the race.
Tomorrow, Carpenter will get his chance to test himself against high school milers from across the country in the "Dream Mile" in Somerville, MA. In a year when several high school runners have run under four minutes for the mile, the fastest opponent in Carpenter's race, Thomas Ratcliffe has run 4:01.5. When asked what he could run in a fast field, Carpenter said he was aiming for 62 second laps for a 4:08.
The weather, as always, will have something to do with the time. Whatever the conditions, Carpenter will have an opportunity to race among some of the best high school milers and see what he can do. While longer races are more favored. He lists the 5K as his favorite distance right now. He ran 14:58 to win the NXN Heartland XC title in 2015 and was fourth at NXN Nationals. Tomorrow he'll get to see how fast he can go in the mile.

The crucial .25 points for Alexandria came from one of the first events on the program, the high jump, where JeAnna Miller tied for ninth place. Syri Williams contributed three points by finishing seventh in the 300 hurdles. Sara Wegner added one point with her ninth place finish in the 400 meters.
The twins went into the 1600 determined not to make the mistake of allowing anyone to get away from them before the final lap of the race, as happened when Forest Lake's Emma Benner used a long kick to triumph in the 3200. Benner took off with two laps to go and the twins weren't able to cover her move. In the 1600, they stayed at the front of the pack until a lap to go when first Bethany and then Megan began their 400 meter sprint for home.
While Megan finished first among the twins in the 3200, Bethany had the better kick in the 1600 to cross the finish line first. More importantly to the twins both were healthy and ready to run. for the last two years Megan has been battling stress reactions in her shins. This track season she got it under control. She didn't race the Hamline Elite meet, but was able to line up at the State Meet with confidence and two healthy legs.
It made the finish line hug between the sisters all the more special. The season doesn't end here, though, as the twins have been invited to compete in the girl's 1500 in Somerville, MA on Friday, June 17.

"How do you like your ice vest?" Ping was asked. Grinning she replied: "I love it." Views are different among sports scientists on how much of an impact such measures have on dealing with the heat, but for Ping it is at least a psychological aid knowing she is doing everything she can to run fast.
As in Friday's 3200 Ping again had an ambitious goal for the season in how fast she wanted to run her events. 4:49 was the "magic number" for the 1600 and she hoped to run under 5 minutes on Saturday. Ping completed her distance double in a time of 5:02.04. When she was asked why she had picked 4:49 as her goal for this season, Ping said that was just a number she chose. It wasn't linked to any record or other reason.
She said she only has two races on the track left for this season, a 2-mile and a 5K at next weekend's New Balance Nationals. After that Ping plans to go back to training and the occasional road race. As the New Balance meet is being held in North Carolina, she'll probably want to pack her ice vest as the conditions will probably be similar to Friday's temperature and humidity.

As she was being interviewed, the event announcer told her that Blake was in the top three and could she make sure the team and coaches could come to the awards area for the trophy presentation.
Salone is used to multi-tasking. A senior, Salone will embark on a degree program in Aeronautical Engineering at Stanford in addition to honing her skills in acting. Salone doesn't just act, she has also written a play, adapted it into a movie, and demonstrated her abilities behind, as well as in front of a camera.
Jaimi will join a former teammate Claire Flanagan, the MSHSL Class A record holder in the 1600 and "Mama Bear" to her teammates when she was at Blake. Flanagan took care of her teammates, was their leader/ role model. Salone has done her part to demonstrate to her classmates that hard work and dedication can lead to notable accomplishments.
She was not one of the favorites going into this year's state meet. She'd finished eighth in the shot put in 2015 and 2nd in the discus to Natalie Manders. But it all came together in her final year at Blake. She improved by almost nine feet in the disc and four feet in the shot put. In theatrical terms, Salone went out with a bang
Saturday, June 11, 2016
|Evan McClellon Photo by Gene Niemi|
More importantly, however, McClellon took away something else from Friday's prelims, a strained left hamstring. He felt a "twinge" in the back of his leg. A twinge that turned into pain. A pain that threatened the goal he'd set for this year. At last year's MSHSL championships McClellon finished second in the 100 and second in the 200. He vowed that 2016 would be different. He would not be the runner-up again. This time he'd win.
As the season unfolded, McClellon was performing well enough to meet the challenge he'd set for himself. Then it happened. The legs that carried him to triumph after triumph had been damaged. H His quest that had seemed to be a sure thing was shattered like the records he'd been breaking all year. The body that had allowed him to run faster, put him in a position to accomplish his ultimate goal, seemed to have let him down.
What should he, what could he do? McClellon talked to a doctor who he'd worked with to see what was possible. He was told to ice the leg. A "bandage/wrap," extra support for the weakened limb, was applied. McClellon was told what he could do and what he shouldn't do. Where the limits were. It was a gamble, and McClellon chose to "roll the dice."
If the leg held together he could have enough speed and power to accomplish his goal. If the experiment failed he might do enough damage to the leg that his sprinting career could be in jeopardy. McClellon settled in the blocks, waited for the sound of the gun, and pushed off the blocks and began the race.
He got a "terrible start." He was behind. He didn't panic. Kept himself under control and "stepped on the gas," the now or never moment when he'd discover if his gamble was going to pay off or go down in flames. Fortunately, the hamstring was up to the challenge. It hurt after the race, but there appeared to be no irreparable harm. More importantly for him he ran 10.51 with "damaged goods" and he won the race.
McClellon had achieved the goal he'd set out to do. There would be no more heroics. "I'm done." He answered to those who wondered if he would run the 200 or race any more in the championships. Mission accomplished. "I'm done."

Ping, a 7th grader, is also ambitious. When she was asked what her goal was, she said this year it was to run 10:10 for the 3200. She was hoping to run that on Friday but it would have had to have been a solo effort in far from perfect conditions for running fast. Senior Hannah Truniger led for the first few laps, starting with a 74 second first lap, followed by a 79 before Ping took over.
Ping said she followed for the first few laps because she didn't want the first lap to be the fastest lap of her race. Her strategy was to get faster with every lap, but she ended up running pretty even splits with a 5:15 first 1600, followed by a 5:16 second 1600. The second 1600 was all on her own as Truniger and 2015 Class A 3200 winner Morgan Richter couldn't hold Ping's pace.
Ping comes back to run the 1600 on Saturday, then will run in the New Balance Outdoor Nationals next weekend in search of that 2016 goal of 10:10.

Krahn was going slowly because his race plan was to conserve energy until 600 meters to go and launch his kick. Carpenter wanted nothing to do with a sit and kick race, so he took charge, as he has all season in both cross country and track by throwing in a mid race surge that nobody could handle. Carpenter threw in a 66 second lap that left everyone else in his wake.
The Edina duo of Jack Manderscheid and Patrick Roos tried to regain lost ground, but couldn't. The pair had come into the race hoping to take a shot at running under nine minutes as Carpenter did last month in winning the 3200 at the Hamline Elite Meet. But the increasing heat and humidity caused them to be cautious and run for place, not for time.
Though Carpenter quickly opened up a big lead, he was still nervous. "I was surprised," he said. Nobody attempted to cover Carpenter's move, but he didn't believe that, so he looked around. "I got scared," said Carpenter. He needn't have been worried as he negative split the race, having gone through the first 1600 around 4:37 and the second half in 4:33.
Though he looked smooth and in control, Carpenter said during the last 200 "bad stuff was happening." Nothing bad enough to change the outcome of the race, but indicative of Carpenter's leave it all on the track approach that has served him so well during the past year.
Behind the top three Carpenter's teammate Khalid Hussein and Willmar's Nadir Yusuf were battling for fourth place. Hussein edged Yusuf by less than a second. Hussein running 9:19.07 and Yusuf 9:19.59.
|Cole Oslin finishing 16th in the 2015 MSHSL XC Championships|
A baseball player in a family of nine brothers and two sisters, he didn't run track until his junior year. He'd gone out for cross country as a tenth grader to have something to do in the Fall. In his junior year he realized his sport was not baseball, and that he wanted to run track in college. Cole dropped baseball and went out for track and "discovered my passion" for running.
On Friday, the passion was there, but the confidence was not. Having finished eleventh in 2015, he'd hoped for a top three finish this year, but was frustrated by the heat and his inability to get in a good position as the race unfolded. "I kept getting boxed in and had to run out in the second lane to get out," he said. "It was frustrating."
The heat didn't help as it added to the tactical struggle. With two laps to go in the race he was feeling so bad that "my goal was to not drop out," Oslin said. "Then I thought 'this is my last race, I can't quit. I have to keep going.'" Coming down the final straight Cole found himself on the shoulder of pre-race favorite Zack Emery, but that proximity didn't generate thoughts of victory over the 2015 Class A XC champion.
With 100 meters left he thought to himself: "I can't do this." But he looked at Emery and saw that Zack was vulnerable. Emery wasn't pulling away. He seemed to be slowing down. With about ten yards to go, Oslin got some confidence. "I CAN win this," he told himself and with one powerful surge blew past Emery to take the title.
He launched his big kick at just the right time, Cole said. "If I would have gone sooner or later I don't think I would have won." He would have used his energy reserves too soon or waited too long to launch his big move. After he finished he looked more shocked than triumphant, but slowly it sank in, he was the champion.
"I'll probably be a little tired," he said, but on Saturday Oslin will be part of the Mora 4 by 800 relay. The team has the fastest qualifying time in the slow heat of the relay but he won't be running for himself. He'll be giving it his all for the team. Then it's on to college down the road at Concordia St. Paul where he'll be majoring in history and political science with the goal of teaching and coaching after he gets his degree.
Running is his athletic passion and he'll try and share that passion with his new teammates at Concordia and, if all goes as planned, the kids he will someday coach.

after the finish. Photo by Gene Niemi
Last month, when the weather conditions were considered more favorable for distance running, Benner won a dual with Winona Cotter's Grace Ping in a personal best time of 10:28.72. On Friday, by chance, the race was not a two-person battle. It unfolded in a manner that was the perfect design for a fast race, rather than the usual championship style these days of a slow pace followed by a big kick to determine the winner.
Minneapolis Washburn's Emily Covert shot off the starting line in a 71 second first quarter, about a second slower than the boy's ran for their first lap of their 3200. None of the boys really wanted to push the pace, so Stillwater's Eli Krahn, who has one of the best kicks, kept it slow to conserve energy. "I was surprised they let me lead at that pace," said Krahn.
Covert didn't think she was going that fast, she found herself in the lead, and the adrenaline took over. She hadn't intended to attempt to run away from the field, but she had a four second lead on the first lap and increased it during the second as the chase pack of five that included defending champion Bethany Hasz, her sister Megan, and Benner were in no hurry to close the gap.
|The Pack:R to L. Emily Covert(5) Bethany Hasz(1), Megan Hasz(sandwiched|
behind Bethany and in front of Benner),Sophie Whicher(4), and
Anna Fenske(6). Photo by Gene Niemi
All of them except Benner. With a half mile to go, as was her pre-race plan, she accelerated. Benner quickly opened up a several second lead that grew as the race now became one for second place. After the race the Hasz twins acknowledged that they didn't respond quick enough to Benner's surge, and when they did it was too late. Megan, who has battled injuries for the last two years, was able to outkick her sister, defending 3200 champion Bethany Hasz, but neither came close to Benner. Covert finished fifth.
The Hasz twins and Benner are entered in the 1600 tomorrow, but Benner has another engagement today. "I'm graduating tonight," she noted, adding: "It's going to be a little tiring."
