Episode #2- The Running Season Has Started

Many teams were in action this past week as some teams had a meet under their belt and others opened their seasons at several meets across the state. Jay Slagle from Prep Running Nerds will get us caught up on all the action. He includes some rankings, individual performances, and a few shoutouts. Our special guest is Coach Kabourek from Lincoln East. He talks about how the sport is growing and how he develops successful teams.

Episode #3- From The Rumble To Kearney

The biggest meet of the season thus far has been the Platte River Rumble that was held less than two weeks ago. Aside from Ogallala, who made the long trip, the River Rumble mostly featured top teams from the eastern side of the state. Class A teams were slotted into the Large School division but all of the other teams had the option to run in the Large or Small School divisions. That led to some interesting match-ups with a few of the top Class B teams going head-to-head with Class A teams.

Jay Slagle talks about top individual performers, rankings, and what’s next. Jake Scheideler interviews Sam Jilka the head coach from Lexington and get much more in this episode.
