Cheers Again For Mr. Devin Hart and the whole Stanford cross country team ...
Devin is doing superb job as redshirt freshman for the team that just won the Pac-10 title..!!!
(titles, actually, both men and women..)
And they will now be top candidates in the NCAA finals coming up.
Check out all the details at: Gostanford.com.
Let's be reminded of all the big ties we have...
Cheers again for the whole great Hart family and all the big things they and Shore AC have done together for years and years !!!//
And for Stanford head coach JJ Clark, now making his mark so prominently in yet another section of America,
having previously excelled as runner at Villanova and coach at Florida, Tennessee and UConn...
And as his officiai bio reminds us:::
On the international scene, Clark was the United States women's middle distance assistant coach at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympic games. He was also the United States head coach for the World Championship Team in 2001 and an assistant coach in 1997, specializing in middle distance.
At the 2000 U.S. Olympic trials, Clark was part of a historic moment as he coached his wife (Jearl Miles-Clark) and two sisters (Hazel Clark, Joetta Clark Diggs) to a sweep in the 800 meters and the trio advanced to the Sydney Games. Clark also coached his wife to the 800 American record (1:56.40), which lasted 20 years.
And the Stanford assistant track coach is "Iggy" Ignaczak, graduate of Toms River North HS and Mt/ St. Mary's, who starred for a while as a post-collegian for Shore AC...
And we know that cheering all this are the Trotter twins, Red Bank Regional HS alumnae who did so many great things, too, for Stanford in recent years...
And furthermore, twins Joe and Jim Rosa were major Stanford major stars, too, from West Windsor, NJ
And ....moving right along....let's applaud (along with Mom Joetta Clark Diggs) all the great deeds thus far in her freshman season at U of Florida by Ms. Talitha Diggs,
who heading into NCAA Indoor Track Championships had number two 400m time in nation (back only of another New Jerseyan, Texas A&M's
Ms.Athing Mu)...No doubt about it, Ms. Talitha Diggs will soon be an Olympic candidate. long with so many other good friends, too ...
Let's salute them all !!!!
