    That is easy... Trabuco Hills HS. It's in south O.C. (enough said) but of all the OC schools they have the best access to a very wide variety of hills and trails. El Toro was awesome but we were 2...

    I think Cain and Verzbicas chose wisely.

    Cain for sure, her career is far beyond that of any high schooler, and the way it is looking beyond that of the collegiate ranks. She is ready to make more...

    Well according to online sources, Corona's boys are a lock for the CIF Finals again. So, I'm under the assumption that we do not need to compete until November 23rd. Maybe, we'll get this peaking...

    We have a lot of "swing" kids this year in the form of F/S kids really looking to step up. With that though there are always question marks as they haven't...

    Are your kids even on this site?

    I'm just curious as to how many of your kids are on here. I know this board is like 98% coaches with a few parents. Seems funny to have a CA Coaches Board when everyone is already here. I remember...

    Haha, I think we've disagreed on some things but...

    You're right. This is kinda boring now. There really haven't been that many fascinating threads on this board. Soooooo, we need a new topic. And hopefully you're volunteering. If you could, the...

    So you are against cherry picking. You want the best coaches to only accept mediocre athletes. OK

    If next year's Tamagno, Rocha, Ogden, German Fernandez, Haney, Baxter, Hasay or Gidyeon shows up...

    Ok, I've tried hard to stay away from that "other thread" that's going on here, but mary cain's 4:04.62 tonight is strong support for both the private coaching argument AND the U.S. can compete with...

    What's interesting is that the youth teams don't automatically draft the kids from their area. No, the kids actually decide who they want to be coached by. It's all about choice. And it's amazing...

    I say that is what your stats are doing now. No one denies that they are beating us. BUT by saying genetics shows we can't beat them is baloney, and nothing more than unacceptable excuses. "I would...

    Dana Hills has 8 guys under 10:00... Hey Gardner, I thought you said something about a "surprise"?

    It is clear you insist on making what and how you view people crystal clear.

    Coaches,

    I want to preface this as not being a complaint as most all of our kids are taking these tests. My curiosity is how many coaches out there feel that their kids performances suffer at the...
