2019 HS Track Results


#22

I did some brief research and didn’t see any 8th grade honor roll times for Mr. Krahn. I did see that Rob Finnerty ran 4:28.1 as an 8th grader in 2004.

I also looked at @bill_miles mnprep site, but I didn’t see any 8th grade times listed. Just freshmen on up…

CORRECTION – It appears that Mr. Krahn ran 4:26.84 at the Suburban East Conference Championship when he was in 8th grade.

You are correct, here’s what I found for Eli’s 8th grade year (from flotrack):

2012 (8th grade)

May 1 10:28.19 3200m

May 4 10:03.59 3200m

May 8 4:36.44 1600m

In Milesplit, this season, Minnesota has 4 boys currently ranked in the top 10 nationally timewise in the outdoor 1600 for 8th graders. Top 2 are from MN.
1: Elliot Mcarthur (Mounds View) - 4:22.40
2: Cameron Stocke (Virginia) - 4:26.89
5: Bryce Stachewicz (Lakeville North) - 4:35.00
10: Samuel Thom (Mankato East) - 4:42.59
Stocke has the second fastest 1600 time in the nation this season for 8th graders by about 5.5 seconds.

For 3200:
1: Elliot Mcarthur (Mounds View) - 9:35.34
11: Andrew Casey (Lakeville North) - 10:20.29
13: Ryan Kilibarda (Stillwater) - 10:22.23
McArthur has the fastest 3200 time in the nation this season for 8th graders by almost 19 seconds.
Lakeville North has not one, but two 8th grade studs in distance. They were both in LN’s top 4 for XC last fall. They also have another 8th grader who ended up as LN’s 9th runner. Their XC team will be pretty solid for the next few years.

Preps Insider

Hold up. What was Tierney Wolfgram doing when she won the 3,200-meter run at the Class 3A, Section 2 True Team section meet last week?

Inadvertently breaking Minnesota State High School League rules, as it turns out. Not wittingly, of course. One of Minnesota’s elite distance runners the past three-plus seasons, Wolfgram transferred from Math & Science Academy to Woodbury High School in March and thus was ineligible to compete in varsity meets for one calendar year.

But Wolfgram, a sophomore, got the OK to race in the True Team section meet sponsored by the sport’s coaches association from Woodbury girls’ track and field coach DJ Billingsley.

PODCAST

[

Listen: Coaching moves and how to catch moves like this one at a track meet

In the latest Talking Preps podcast, David La Vaque and Jim Paulsen recount a rite of spring – mentors on the move – along with an eligibility issue, a squeeze on officials, state records, and camaraderie on display at the True Team track state meet.](Listen: Coaching moves and how to catch moves like this one at a track meet | Star Tribune)

Oops.

School District 833 spokesperson Shelly Schafer wrote in an e-mail that Billingsley “mistakenly believed that Tierney would be allowed to compete at the varsity level because the meet was not sanctioned by the Minnesota High School League. However, when [Woodbury] Activities Director [Marvin Wooten] was made aware of the situation, he immediately reached out to the Minnesota State High School League to self-report the situation.”

The school received a letter of censure but Wolfgram was not punished. And her performance didn’t alter the team competition. Woodbury placed a distance fourth. The two girls behind her in the 3,200 were from Stillwater, which won the meet anyway.

Incidentally, Wolfgram’s winning time of 11 minutes and 54-hundredth of a second ranks as one of the state’s top half-dozen times this spring. That would indicate the fracture in her left foot has nicely healed.

She solidified her place among Minnesota’s top runners as an eighth-grader, winning the Class 1A cross-country state title in November 2016 and adding the 3,200 and 1,600 crowns the following spring at the state track and field championships.

Wolfgram defended her cross-country title in 2017.

Last fall, Wolfgram placed sixth in the elite women’s field of the Twin Cities Marathon. Her time of 2:40:03 ranked as the fastest ever by a 15-year-old American girl according to USA Track & Field.

Less than a month later, Wolfgram fell during the cross-country state championship meet and didn’t not finish.

She won’t be eligible to qualify for the Class 2A state cross-country meet as a junior this fall but can obliterate the field in junior varsity meets.

MileSplit is onto this story as well.

https://www.milesplit.com/articles/261797-minor-snafu-almost-cost-tierney-wolfgram-two-seasons

Last week marked roughly seven months since Tierney Wolfgram last suited up for a legitimately competitive race.

But this time there were some noticeable differences, and a minor snafu almost cost the high school sophomore her eligibility for two straight track and field seasons.

First, though, a little background.

In March, Wolfgram, one of the country’s best young distance runners, transferred from Math & Science Academy to nearby Woodbury High School, which was right down the road from her previous school.

The state’s athletic association, the MSHSL, handed Wolfgram a one-year suspension of varsity competition, as it came amid the current calendar school year and represented just a few miles transfer down the road, whether athletically motivated or not.

But that may not have been such a bad thing. Wolfgram, who in October surprised fans of high school distance running when she entered into the Minneapolis Twin Cities Marathon and finished eighth overall, running to an 15-year-old age group record of 2 hours, 40 minutes and 3 seconds, could spend time healing and rehabilitating from a fracture she picked up in March.

Wolfgram would miss the upcoming cross country season in Minnesota – not including national qualifying or competition – but she would be back for the track season come her junior campaign. And even then, Wolfgram could still compete in junior varsity races in the fall.

But in May, perhaps someone believed there was a loophole.

A small mistake took place when coaches at Woodbury mistakenly believed that Wolfgram could compete at the Class Section 2AAA True Team Meet, which was orchestrated by the Minnesota Coaches Association and not the MSHSL.

Wolfgram ran the 3200m as a varsity member and placed first in 11:00.54. Yesterday, she ran a JV 1600m and finished in 5:10.34.

When updated of the situation, Woodbury AD Marvin Wooten self-reported the incident, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported, and waited for the decision.

Fortunately, Wolfgram’s win in the race did not impact the team competition, and according to the Tribune, the school “received a letter of censure (a reprimanding of the school) but Wolfgram was not punished.”

Had she impacted that meet, the sophomore could have been in jeopardy of missing her junior season at Woodbury as well.

Much like Easton Allred this past cross country season, Wolfgram will have a chance to clean up in JV races this fall, and then race again as a varsity member as a junior. Only this time, Wolfgram also made a step up in classification, so her seasons-long duel with the Ping sisters, Grace and Lauren, will have to wait for bigger and better national races.
