February 14, 2017 - Workout on for tonight

Happy Valentine's day!!!  There WILL be a modified hill workout at Flagpole hill at 5:30 pm today!

 

January 30, 2017 - Strider history updated.

Thanks to Texasmilesplit who posted a complete history of the UIL records and results, I am able to list the following Strider performances:

STATE MEET RECORDS STILL HELD BY FORMER MEMBERS OF THE DALLAS METROPLES STRIDERS:

200 M - 1981 LASHON NEDD - 23.O4

1600 M - 2006 LOREN HODGES 5:04.02 ( 3 A )

            2011 KELSEY HERMES 5:O4.74 ( 2A )

3200 M - 1893 SHELLON McCALLIE 11;07.44 ( 1A )

SO RECORDS GO ALL THE WAY BACK TO THE 1980'S.  THE CLUB WAS STARTED IN 1973 ( BEFORE GIRLS CROSS COUNTRY WAS EVEN COMPETED AT ANY LEVEL ) AND OUR STATE CHAMPIONS ARE TO MANY TO LIST BY NAME, BUT HERE ARE THE TOTALS: FOR EACH EVENT FOR GIRLS:

200M - 1

800M - 6

1600M - 26 (!)

3200M - 20 (!) 

JUST A NOTE HERE - THE CLUB STARTED AS A GIRLS ONLY CLUB AS THERE WAS A BOYS CLUB IN DALLAS AT THE START. SLOWLY BOYS STARTED COMING OUT AND WORKING HARD ON THE SYSTEM.

THIS IS BIG - FROM CINDY TOLLE THROUGH ERIN BEDELL, THE STATE GIRLS 1600M RECORD WAS HELD BY THESE TWO STRIDERS FOR 33 YEARS!!! TWO YEARS AGO GREAT YOUNG RUNNERS PASSED THEIR TIMES - AS IT SHOULD BE. 

BOYS STATE CHAMPIONS:

DANIEL PESSING -  THE FASTEST STRIDER EVER WON TWO STATE TITLES IN DIFFERENT CLASIFICATIONS! ( 1:51+ )

LOGAN SHERMAN - A STATE 3200 M RECORD HOLDER IN HIS TIME.  HE WEN'T ON TO BE A GREAT COLLEGE AND POST COLLEGE RUNNING WHO WON THE DALLAS MARATHON IN 2015. STILL A GREAT PART OF THE DALLAS RUNNING SCENE.

OTHER GREAT STATE CHAMPIONS WHO WORKED ON OUR SYSTEMS AND WON STATE TILTLES ARE:

STEPHEN CURRY, (1600 ), CODY HUGES ( 1600 ) MATT CHANCE AND MATT PRIEST ( 3200 ).

THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE MANY PRIVATE SCHOOL RECORD HOLDERS AND CHAMPIONS OVER THE YEAR.  JUST LOVE RUNNERS WHO REALLY WANT TO WORK - NO MATTER THEIR LEVEL!
