DXC Update - State Championships

Darts - 
We wrapped up another very successful cross country season by bringing home two state championship trophies. The girls finished 1st and the boys finished 2nd - both races showed what DXC is all about. Both races took every runner giving their all for their TEAM. 

The girls had to fight a little harder for this one than we expected. It was definitely not our easiest race of the season, but we stayed tough and finished with everything we had to earn our 3rd straight state championship (and our 5th in the past 6 years). And we looked cool doing it in our bright yellow uniforms. We really wanted to get the team time record (93:50), and we came up just short (94:15) - but I truly believe we could have achieved it on nearly any other day. It is still the Davis team time record - beating our 2011 time of 95:10. It is also #4 on the Utah all-time list. We also still won the overall team competition (with all divisions 1A - 5A). It was a very tight race. We scored 106.5, Mountain Crest was 2nd with 111, Park City was 3rd with 113, and American Fork was 4th with 139. We kept our undefeated streak alive, but it was not easy. The thing that impressed me most about our girls yesterday was that we didn't have our best day, but we still dug deep enough and still had enough desire, determination, and teamwork to finish the race with a lot of guts. Ellie Child capped off an incredible first season of cross country with her 3rd place finish in 18:29. She has added so much speed and strength to our team. Yesterday may not have been her best race, but she showed a lot of toughness in getting to the finish line. She went out with the leaders, covered their moves, and then had to really dig deep over the final 800m of the race. It may not have been what she expected, but she still gave her all. We could not have won it without her. Shea Martinez made a courageous move with about 1200m to go - she gapped the field and really went for it. She was on pace to run under 18 minutes until the final 500m. It was definitely a gutsy performance, but she ran out of gas and struggled to the finish line. I couldn't be more proud of her. Despite any fear or doubt, she went for it. She pushed her body as hard as it would go yesterday. She maybe could have settled in and raced cautiously and finished with a 2nd or 3rd place - but she made the risk - she went for it. It reminds me of the Steve Prefontaine quote: "A lot of people run the race to see who is the fastest. I run to see who has the most guts, who can punish himself to exhausting pace."  Shea ended up finishing in 7th place with 18:45. Ironically it is the same time that she won with as a sophomore. Shea has really raised the bar for girls racing at our school and in the state of Utah. She has had a phenomenal high school cross country career - and her effort yesterday showed her passion for racing and her determination to do her best. It was Shea's 3rd state championship TEAM. We could not have done all that we have without her. Mikell Wood came through big for us again yesterday as she has all season long. She ran the race plan perfectly, and it was awesome to watch her fight off the top American Fork girl in the final 100m of the race. Mikell's time of 18:52 was good enough for 8th place and good enough to earn her all-state. Mikell has come a long way from her sophomore year, and it really shows what hard work and determination can accomplish. We could not have won it without her. Ashley Tyndall also came through big for us. She ran patiently, and she showed a ton of fight over the 2nd half of the race. Ashley has also worked extremely hard for her improvements. It was awesome to see her finish under 19 minutes. Her time of 18:58 was good enough for 11th place. We could not have won it without her. Joanna Boyd came down sick with strep on Sunday. Not the best timing - but somehow she stayed as positive as possible and still made it to the starting line. Of course she was worried, she didn't know how she would feel, but she knew her TEAM needed her, and she was going to go out and do her best. Every time Joanna races, she gives her very best for her TEAM. She was so mentally tough yesterday, and she had to be. As a few of her teammates began to struggle in front of her, somehow Joanna found the guts to keep moving up through the group. Her time of 19:09 is absolutely incredible considering the circumstances. It was good enough for 16th place, and good enough to finish as our 5th runner and wrap up the victory for us. It is also Joanna's 3rd state championship TEAM. She has really left her mark on Davis Cross Country. We are so lucky that she moved to Kaysville before her sophomore year. We could not have done it without her. Chelsey Johnson is definitely a fighter. She started to struggle a little earlier in the race. But she did not give in. Just has she has so many times before, Chelsey showed her toughness and ran for her TEAM. She has made some sacrifices to be part of this TEAM, and we are grateful to have her. This was her 2nd state championship team - and we could not have done it without her. Kami Dixon did what we needed her to as well. She helped lead our pack through the important early miles of the race. I think she really helped to keep her teammates calm and confident. And she helped us make the moves we needed in the first 2 miles. After that, Kami really struggled to the finish line. She said she kept telling her legs to go, but it just wasn't there. It was evident that she was giving her all for her TEAM. She still played a vital role in our success - not just in yesterday's race, but in our entire season. We could not have done it without her. Every girl on the TEAM was crucial to our victory. Each girl on the TEAM (both those who raced yesterday and those who did not) has had to face struggles and doubts. Each girl on the TEAM has had to make sacrifices. Our sacrifices and our challenges have made us stronger and more unified - and because of that, we are champions (literally and figuratively).

The boys' season has not necessarily gone as we would have expected. We have faced more challenges on our road to the state championships than we thought we would, and we were not in the position we thought we would be in at this point. Still, we prepared the best we could, and we showed up ready for a fight. We came away with a trophy and a 2nd place finish to another strong American Fork team. We also finished 2nd in the combined (1A-5A) team scoring in a close battle: American Fork (79.5), Davis (150), Herriman (157.5), Bonneville (160). No doubt this was the deepest TEAM year in Utah cross country history. Our team time of 79:43 is #7 on the Utah all-time list, and our 2nd fastest ever (79:01 in 2011). And it is 1:24 faster than our 2010 TEAM that went on to finish 11th at NXN. Just like our girls, each of our boys showed a lot of guts in running for their TEAM. Alex Hedquist led the way with a new Davis school record on the course. His time of 15:21 would have won so many other years - and was good enough for 3rd this year. Alex stayed with the lead group and kept himself in position even when the race got tough. Alex has worked and worked for the past 4 years of cross country to put himself in this position. It was definitely rewarding to see him have this type of a race at the state championships. Brayden Cromar competed on his 3rd state championship team (finishing top 12 all three years). He has been such a solid runner and leader for us all three years. Just like he always does, he put his heart and soul into the race. I don't think it was his best day, but he ran with emotion and went for it by going with the leaders. He will be as strong as ever a month from now at NXN. His time of 15:43 was his pr on the course and was good enough for 6th place, his 2nd all-state award. Skylar Williams really went for it. I didn't realize he was right with the leaders coming up the big hill until I saw the pictures on and this morning (sweet pictures of our top 3 by the way). It showed a lot of guts and it was a risk - but it was the kind of risk necessary for us to have a shot yesterday. It also shows me that once we get his back injury figured out, Skylar is going to completely tear it up. He always races so tough. His finish was phenomenal as he ran down about 5 guys in the final 200m to finish 12th with 16:08.Preston Johnson has only been running for 2 1/2 weeks. His shin stress fracture did not come at a very convenient time for Presto. He had high hopes for this season and for this state championship race. Preston's 8 weeks without running were not easy on him or the TEAM. I know he fought hard through discouragement and doubt. And I know he had plenty of fears going into yesterday's race. But Preston is strong. He adjusted his goals and his original hopes, and he went into the race ready to do his best for his TEAM. When we started to struggle over the 2nd half of the race, Preston ran as hard as he ever has to move up into our #4 position. He really helped the TEAM out with his 15th place finish (16:12). It is also Preston's 3rd time running at state. He has had a great career - and he is not through by any means. I couldn't be more proud of his quick comeback. With 4 more weeks, I can't wait to see what Presto can do at the Nike Regionals. He is really going to add to our TEAM strength as we prepare for that race. Hayden Hansen has been strong for us all season long. He has shown consistency and has worked harder than ever. He also went after it yesterday - keeping himself in a position to make a difference for our TEAM and really giving his all to run the race plan. He finished in our top 5 and was 18th overall in his first state championship race with a time of 16:17. Andrew Aposhian went out like we needed him to as well. Andrew is such a hard worker and such a good kid. He truly is a great example to everyone on the TEAM. His race yesterday was not his best, but he never gave up. He did what he needed to for our team - pulling our guys through the 2 mile mark in a solid position. Watching Andrew race that final mile really captured what I think DXC is all about - giving your best for your teammates. He finished in 20th with 16:20 - and I know he is determined to be a lot faster a month from now. Stokton Smith was in his first major championship race - but I think he is going to have a lot more opportunities like this in the future. He has shown all year that he races with "no fear" and that he is an extremely gutsy, tough runner. He is still learning and still gaining a lot from every experience. In his first state championships, he finished as the #2 sophomore in the race with a 16:37 (28th place). He was also the 6th fastest sophomore from all divisions. He also didn't have his best day and is trying to figure out some challenges with asthma, but once he figures that out, watch out. Each of these boys has put a lot into this season. Our entire TEAM has put a lot into the success we have had this season. It has had its ups and downs, but we have stuck together and we will continue to fight through our final cross country races of the year.

For both the boys and the girls race, we had the strongest "8th man" at the meet. Our athletes, fans, and parents who were not racing provided so much energy and excitement for our TEAM. I truly believe we could not have raced that well yesterday if it was not for those who were cheering and encouraging our runners. Thanks for all the support and thanks for helping to make this a successful state championships.

Also, a special congratulations to our "state record" setting 5 boys who earned academic all-state: Seth Thompson, Alex Hedquist, Jackson Sagers, Andrew Aposhian, and Phillip Baker. You boys done real good. It is amazing how much you have accomplished in every area of your lives. Great runners, great students, and great examples.

I quickly would like to thank our coaches. They have done so much for us this season. Be aware that each of them make sacrifices and have selflessly shown love and support for each of you. They have offered expertise, advice, and encouragement, and we are lucky to have them. Thanks, Brad Anderson, Paul Timothy, Kat Pendleton, Brian Garlock, and Devin Lang (we really miss you Devin - but we are proud of what you are doing). Once again - we could not have done it without them. 

With 5 senior boys and 5 senior girls on our state teams, it is really time for our juniors, sophomores, and freshmen to increase the intensity of their training. We cannot afford to wait until the seniors are gone next summer to step up our level of training. Learn from how these seniors work. Learn from their leadership and their toughness. Be willing to risk. Be willing to push yourselves beyond what you think you can do - in races and in training. Train like them now while they are still here and we can still learn from them. I can't wait to see who steps up and who does the work to be the surprise runner we are going to need over the next 12 months. It may not look like it on paper, but I want to come back as a TEAM next year to once again be in a position to win 2 state titles. It will take a lot of hard work and a ton of passion to get there, but we can do it as a TEAM. This is a good time to evaluate the effort you are giving and to look for ways that you can give a little more (or a lot more). You never know what you can do until you really give full effort to try to accomplish something.

We will now be working toward the NXN Regional race in Arizona on November 17th. We are definitely in a position to qualify both the girls and the boys for the Nike Nationals (in Portland on December 1st). The next 4 weeks are extremely important weeks. Our attitude these next 4 weeks is just as important as what we do for our workouts. It is important that we continue to stay hungry and focused. It is important that we continue to put the TEAM first and continue to be unified and make sacrifices for one another. I have attached the workout schedule for the next 4 weeks. If you are hoping to go to Arizona with the TEAM, please review the workout schedule and commit to make it to all of the workouts. Those workouts actually start today (Thursday) - it is important that you get in some good mileage on your own during this break. We will be having a TEAM meeting on Monday to discuss the NXN details. We will be able to take 48 athletes with us to Arizona.

TEAM Pictures will be on Tuesday, October 23rd. Bring your uniforms. Last week I said they would be on Wednesday - that has been changed to Tuesday. 

The TEAM Banquet will be on Thursday, November 8th at 6:00pm. Most likely this will take place at the school. 

Thanks again, let me know if you have any questions.

DXC Update - Region Championships

Darts - 
The highlight of the week was the Region Championships. It was a very rewarding day as we were the top TEAM in all 4 races. Our boys won their 17th straight region title, and the girls won their 7th. All of our hard work and determination from the summer and the season was very evident in the way you raced as individuals and as a TEAM. 
Girls JV - we finished with the top 13 places, and if our JV girls had been in the varsity race, we would have finished 2nd to our own varsity girls. We were led by a very strong race from Hannah Albrechtsen. It caps off a great comeback season from Hannah after some summer injury and health challenges. Her time of 19:54 is the fastest winning JV time in region history. Elise Anderson finished strong for 2nd in 20:05 and Josey Hedquist was 3rd in 20:12. Great job to our seniors in the race - Michaela Uresk (4th), Sadie Hutchinson (6th), Sierra Haslam (7th), Katie Frandsen (8th), Shaylee Argyle (16th), and Nalany Resek (25th). I was also very proud of Taylor Cox and her valiant effort in pushing the pace and really going after an amazing performance over the first 2.5 miles of the race. It is very hard to be mentally tough enough to push your body as hard as she did.
Boys JV - The boys JV race was very exciting start to finish. I loved the pack we had of 15 Davis boys coming through the mile together. We finished the race with 13 of the top 14, and like our girls, our boys JV would have finished 2nd to our boys in the varsity race. Josh Ward finished with an amazing final 800m to get the victory in 16:30 (was fast enough for 10th in the varsity race). Josh was pushed over that final half mile by Ryan Lee who ended up 3rd in 16:40. It was awesome watching them really dig in over the final half mile - just as we had challenge them to do. Matt Hawkins has improved a ton as the season progressed - possibly our surprise runner of the year - and he came up to finish 2nd in 16:35. It was a great final race for our seniors: Ryan Lee (3rd) Devin Farnsworth (6th), Isaac Clouse (8th), Seth Thompson (9th), Ryan Tanner (13th), Phillip Baker (19th), and Trevor Fry (23rd). For both the boys and the girls, our seniors have really led the way for us this season - I couldn't be more proud of all they have accomplished. 
Girls Varsity - The girls varsity race was quite possibly the best 3 mile race we have ever had as a Davis girls TEAM. We had 8 of the top 10 girls in the race, we had a record 8 girls under 19:00, and we shattered the team time record on the course by over 2:30. Our top 5 girls times combined for 91:33 (an average time of 18:19). Ellie Child and Shea Martinez were both under the previous course record, and Ellie got the region championship in 17:37. Shea finished a strong 2nd in 17:51. Ashley Tyndall finished 5th with 18:39 in her best race of the year. Chelsey Johnson had a great final 200m to finish 6th in 18:43. Mikell Wood continued her strong running with 7th in 18:43. Kenzie Weir ran extremely tough to finish 8th in 18:44 as well. And Seniors Joanna Boyd and Kami Dixon were 9th and 10th. It showed that we are ready to make a run at the state championships next week. If we can get the win, it will be our 5th state title in the past 6 years. We also have a shot at running the team time record for the state course. The current team time record is from the 1999 Bingham team that finished the year ranked #1 in the U.S. They ran a combined top 5 time of 93:50 (18:46 average). Although the state course is tougher than our region course, that time is completely in our reach.
Boys Varsity - for the 2nd year in a row, our boys came away with a perfect score (15) at the region meet. Our boys also finished with 8 in the top 10. We were led by a great 1-2 finish from Alex Hedquist and Brayden Cromar. These two seniors (along with a few others on the TEAM) have worked so well together through 4 cross country seasons now. As I watched Alex and Brayden and the others flying down the back side of the park about 2.5 miles into the race for the last time, I got just a bit emotional. Again - it has been such a pleasure to work with this group of seniors. They have done so much for our program, and they are leaving it stronger than ever. Alex was just 4 seconds off the course record with his time of 15:22. Brayden finished just :03 back in 2nd. Skylar Williams had a strong finish to pick up 3rd in 15:52, Andrew Aposhian was 4th in 15:53, Hayden Hansen was 5th in 15:57, Stokton Smith was 7th in 16:11, and Preston Johnson was 9th in 16:22. It is sure nice to have Preston coming back. We also had 3 other seniors in the race who have been committed and hard working examples of what DXC is all about - good job to Sam Haws, Taylor Goldsberry, and Jackson Sagers. Our team time of 78:29 is #2 all-time to our time of 77:55 in 2011. 

Full results can be found at and pictures have been posted on Facebook. 

Athletes of the Week: Ashley Tyndall, Chelsey Johnson, Sadie Hutchinson, Alex Hedquist, Skylar Williams, Devin Farnsworth 

Mile Time Trial: For those of you who are not racing in the state meet. We will be having an optional mile time trial on the track on Monday for practice. I would encourage all of you to participate. The time trial will take place at the conclusion of the varsity workout.

State Cross Country: The state meet is on Wednesday (October 17th) at Sugarhouse Park. The girls race at 2:00 and the boys race at 3:30. We will be excused from school at 11:15. The buses will leave at 11:30. You will need to check in with your 7th period teachers before we leave. I would like everyone at the state meet - of course those competing and the alternates, but also everyone else on the TEAM. We are going to need to provide a lot of energy and inspiration for those who are racing. We will have a TEAM meeting on Tuesday after school to go over our some last minute information including our race plan, our cheering plan, and a few other things you need to be aware of. 

Long Sleeve Shirts: Should arrive by Tuesday. Pay your money in the office if you would like to pick your shirt up on Tuesday. $25 without a name on the sleeve. $30 with the name on the sleeve.

Fall Break: We will not be meeting over the fall break (October 18-20). But if you are hoping to go to NXN Southwest in November - you should run distance all 3 days (anywhere from 5 to 10 miles each day). We will have a meeting about NXN on Monday, October 22nd after school - followed by a workout. 

TEAM Pictures: Will be on Wednesday, October 24th after school. We will wait for the 9th graders. Bring your uniforms. 

Let's finish off the season with a week filled with positive thinking. Everything you say or think should be positive. We have the full potential to finish off this season with our greatest state championship meet ever. It is going to take a lot of guts and a lot of TEAMwork - but this is what we have been working for, and this is what we are ready for.  
Let's just do that.

DXC Update - Barnes Park

Darts - 
Sort of had a busy weekend, so the email is a bit late, but I have some information that I needed to get out to all of you. First off - great week of practices, and great job at the Barnes Park meet. We had new course records (for the 3 mile race) for both the boys and the girls. Shea Martinez ran 18:03 to break her own course record by 50 seconds, and Brayden Cromar ran 15:25 to break his course record (that he shared with Preston Johnson) by 25 seconds. We also perfect scored all three races by taking the top 5 places in each. It was definitely one of our most solid TEAM performances this year. It came right at the perfect time as we are preparing for the region and state championships these next 2 Wednesdays. Girls results can be found at and boys results can be found at

Athletes of the Week: Elise Anderson, Sam Hedquist, Preston Johnson, Kimball Potter, Brandon Peters

Region Championships - Will be held at Layton Park on Wednesday, October 10th. Here are the following important items regarding the meet:
1) Time Schedule:
1:15 - Excused from School (please check in with your 4th period classes)
1:30 - Bus leaves to Layton Park
3:00 - Girls JV 
3:30 - Boys JV
4:00 - Girls Varsity
4:30 - Boys Varsity
5:00 - Awards (I would like the entire TEAM to stay for awards)

2) Region Meeting - will be on Tuesday at 2:45 in my classroom.

3) Region Dinners - the girls will be at Ellie Child's house at 5:30 on Tuesday night, and the boys will be at Hayden Hansen's at 5:30 on Tuesday night. We will give addresses and directions at the meetings on Monday and Tuesday. We will also have you sign up to bring salad, breadsticks, dessert, or to help with the pasta. Seniors should be prepared to say something to fire up your TEAM before the region championships. If there are any moms (or dads) of seniors who would like to help with getting the pasta cooked and/or bringing spaghetti sauce - please let me know. 

4) Both TEAMs should plan on dressing up at school on Wednesday. Boys in ties - girls in dresses.

5) We will do popsicles one last time (for this season). If any parents can bring 18-24 of them - just let me know - or bring them and drop them off in the cooler.

6) After the region meet - everyone will meet and continue to train on Thursday and Friday. Those who will be running at state (and the alternates) will have a Saturday practice. And then everyone will meet together on Monday and Tuesday of next week. 

State Championships - will be held on October 17th at Sugarhouse Park. Although only 7 boys and 7 girls can run, I expect all of you to attend the state meet and be a part of the race - if not through racing, by cheering, supporting, and inspiring. Plus we will take quite a few TEAM pictures - and we will be the loudest, most excited TEAM at the meet. The girls race at 2:30 and the boys race at 4:00.

That's all. I hope that each of you are determined to have your best race of the season on Wednesday. Get the rest you need these next 3 nights. Take extra good care of yourselves. Visualize yourself performing your very best. And show up ready to tear it up and ready to be a TEAM.

Coach Talley
