PENFIELD, NY (WHEC) — Coaches can be important figures in the lives of so many athletes. For hundreds, if not thousands, of those who ran cross country or track at Penfield High School, that figure was David Hennessey.

“He was just a mentor to so many of us that my first phone call was when I got the job as head coach at Wheatfield,” said Meghan Braun Smith, who ran under Hennessey from 1990-1996.

Smith and countless other alumni raved about Hennessey’s ability to train everyone with equal respect.

“The amazing thing about David Hennessey was that some of my friends were the stars of this team. Extremely well-qualified naturalists. He treated the ‘Schlubs’ with the same attention as me,” said Paul Valerio.

Valerio didn’t even want to join the team until his friends convinced him. But from 1979 to 1981 he gave in and did not regret it.

“The amount of effort he put into it. The humility. The sense of humor. The warmth and compassion he felt because he knew what it was like to be a teenager,” Valerio said. “He was really fun to work hard.”

Hennessey’s passion did not wane as his coaching years continued to grow. Even as a coach into his late 60s, the mindset – and impact – was still the same.

“It’s rare to find a coach who not only can think about who my fastest runners are or who my best players are to take those positions, but who actually takes the time to consider all of their athletes,” said Cal Robinson, who ran at Penfield from 2013-2014.

Robinson played a few sports in high school and had nothing bad to say about any of his coaches. But he put Hennessey in a category of his own.

“To run for Henn and to play football for someone else, it’s not quite the same,” Robinson said.

Robinson, Valerio, and Smith are all part of a larger Facebook group called Penfield: Track and Field and Cross Country. While the group was not formed for its current purpose, it has been flooded with support for Coach Hennessey in recent days.

The longtime coach was fired from the Penfield School District on Oct. 31. Little information was given as to why the decision was made. I called the PCSD on Friday but no one answered.

They followed shortly thereafter with a written statement:

We appreciate the dedication and commitment that Coach Dave Hennessey has brought to our cross-country and track programs over the years. At that point we made the decision to move on with a different coaching staff. We understand that any time a coaching change is made, parents, students and alumni will have questions. While we cannot comment on specific hiring decisions, it is important to note that coaches serve per season at the discretion of the district. We thank Coach Hennessey for his many years of service and wish him all the best for the future.

Right now, the 400+ people in the Facebook group and nearly 900 who have signed a petition for his reinstatement are all just looking for answers.

“If he wants that, then I want that. I would appreciate a little explanation. Some clarity, some transparency,” said Robinson.

“Called him right away. He answered the phone straight away and was typical David Hennessey. On a positive note, he wasn’t badmouthing Penfield, but he was genuinely disappointed, upset and devastated,” Smith said.

While no answers are forthcoming, Penfield High’s cross country and track and field community has come together to celebrate Hennessey’s legacy.

Right now there are many emotions such as tension, frustration and curiosity.

Furthermore? A common denominator – life lessons learned from a single coach.

NEW ORLEANS – #TheRunToStillwater was at its peak.

Here is the Pre-Championships Edition of the NCAA DI Cross Country Men’s National Coach Survey, as released by the US Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) on Monday. There was a lot of movement at the last National Coaches Poll as all but four teams remained stable after an exciting Regional Championship Friday.

NCAA Division I – Men’s Cross Country
This week’s national top 5

1
Stanford

2
Northern Arizona

3
BYU

4
State of Oklahoma

5
Tulsa

Cross-country surveys and rankings

However, nothing has changed at the top since Stanford cemented its stronghold at the top of the National Coaches’ Poll. The top-ranked Cardinal, who received 10 out of a possible 11 first-place votes, rolled to the team title at the West Region Championships, scoring just 45 points. Stanford, considered the clear favorite to win the teams’ title in Stillwater, Oklahoma, is seeking his first since 2003.

Two-time national championship champion Northern Arizona improved by one place to 2nd place and swapped places with BYU. The Lumberjacks overtook the Cougars following their head-to-head victory at last weekend’s Mountain Region Championships. NAU beat BYU, 43-54 as Nico Young and Drew Bosley went 1-2 and the rest of the scorers’ list tied for 9-14-17. The Cougars had three in the top-10 and four in the top-15 to take a close second place.

State of Oklahoma and Tulsa 4th and 5th respectively after an incredible fight at the Midwest Region Championships. The officials had to go to a tiebreaker after both the Cowboys and the Golden Hurricane finished on 49 points. Tulsa was able to take four of the top six thanks to its front-end depth, beating Oklahoma State 3-2. The Cowboys, who won the Big 12 title earlier in the postseason, have finished fourth each of the past five weeks.

No other team was able to maintain its place in last week’s top 10: Wisconsin is now 6th after his dominating win at the Great Lakes Region Championships; The next two places belong to the third and fourth place finishers in the mountain region – No. 7 Colorado and No. 8 air force; Northeast Region Champion Syracuse is now ranked 9th, followed by the Southeast Region Champion North Carolina at #10.

Other notable improvements in the National Coaches Poll were submitted by the Southern Region Champion Tennessee (up six places from No. 20 to No. 14), second in the West Region gonzaga (up 11 places from #26 to #15) and 2nd in the Mid-Atlantic region george town (returned to 22nd in the national team coaches’ poll after falling to vote-taking country in week 6).

Remember that 2022 NCAA DI Cross Country Championships are THIS SATURDAY at the Greiner Family OSU Cross Country Course in Stillwater, Oklahoma! You can watch the action uninterrupted on ESPNU starting at 10am ET. The men’s race begins at 11:10 a.m. ET.

Must Run: Catawba Cross Country at SAC Championships!

Published Saturday 12 November 2022 00:00

Last Saturday’s cross-country meeting of the South Atlantic Conference was hosted by Catawba College in Salisbury Community Park. Coach Jason Bryan’s men’s and women’s teams had solid results, with the men’s team finishing second in an 8 km (4.97 miles) course while the women’s 6 km (3.7 miles) course took third place. A total of 13 colleges and universities took part.

Catawba’s hot newcomer Madison Clay led the women’s field with a time of 21 minutes 58.7 seconds. It was the fastest time ever for the 6K in the Catawba program and Clay became the first conference winner since 1997, when Allison Dupree Adams took the crown.

Adams said, “It’s great to see the rise of athletics and cross country in Catawba over the last 5 to 10 years. Jason has done an excellent job, especially since the inclusion of the athletics program has allowed the school to bring more talented recruits into the program. Madison’s hard work paid off with an outstanding win last Saturday!”

Other highlights from this year’s women’s program include the highest conference finish since 1998, two runners making up the All Freshman team, and five All Conference selections. The top five finishers for Catawba included Clay, Mikayla Jones, Raina Andrews, Natalie Almond and Rachel Overby.

Clay of Morganton’s Patton High School was named both Freshman and SAC Conference Runner of the Year, a first for the Catawba program. At 18, Clay knows she has many expectations as she pursues her cross-country career. She said, “I still can’t believe my success, but I’m honored to represent Catawba as we seek to take our team to the next level. It can be stressful, but it’s nice to have goals. I just love running!” Coach Bryan says that Clay is always smiling, even when she’s passing other competitors on the track. Clay is majoring in exercise science and plans to become a Registered Dietitian.

The Catawba men’s team was led by third-place finisher Oussama Aiala with a season best of 25:30.06. He was followed by Mooresville native and Freshman of the Year Tanner Smith, Erick Ramierez, EJ Threatt and Brannon Burns.

The men’s second-place finish was the highest since 2002. Five all-conference selections and two freshman team selections were highlights of the conference meeting.

“I am I’m really excited about the group we have here right now.” Coach Bryan said. Both the men’s and women’s teams are called up this season and have accomplished some great things at the conference meeting. This has built up over the past few years and we’re having a great team season. Past team members and coaches laid the foundation for what is happening now and I am grateful for their hard work. Our goal is to be one of the better collegiate cross country/track programs in the area while achieving the national level annually. We have a chance to do something special at Regionals next week as we try to qualify both teams for the Nationals.”

Both the men’s and women’s teams will compete in the Regionals on Saturday, November 19 at Wingate University.

Next up for local racing is the ever-popular Butterball 5K Run/Walk at The Forum on Thanksgiving Day. It’s Salisbury’s biggest 5K and a wonderful way to burn off those calories before a big holiday meal. All proceeds go to Rowan for Child Abuse Prevention and participants will receive a commemorative t-shirt, refreshments and a chance to win prizes for the top three overall and top three in 13 age groups. Cash prizes total $500. Registration is available at The Forum, Runsignup.com and by post after printing a brochure on the SRR website.

After a triumphant spring 2022 outdoor season that saw the Ithaca College women’s track and field team finish 28th in the country, the Bombers are poised to resume competition for their indoor season.

The Bombers finished a 2021-22 indoor season in which they finished third in the NCAA championships on March 11-12. Meghan Matheny, who was a senior at the time, First in pole vault, while then-senior heptathlete Logan Bruce and then-pole vaulter Sara Altonen delivered All-American performances to lead the college to third place. Then-junior sprinter Tia Jones also achieved two second places in the 60 and 200 meter dashes.

Additionally, Matheny, Altonen and then-junior pole vaulter Martha Kemp-Neilson were named All-Americans in May following their performances at the NCAA Outdoor Championships in Geneva, Ohio, on 26.-28. May.

Although several key members of the team graduated last May, head coach Jennifer Potter ’92 said she is excited about the future of the program.

“You keep using the word energy in the weight room and training,” Potter said. “I think of the teams ahead of us and what we can do with this tradition of success, that is what our women stand for.”

The Bombers enter the indoor competition after winning the last one 14 consecutive conference championships between indoor and outdoor season and also sent five women to the NCAA Outdoor Championships. The team will look to continue their recent streak of success and continuity when the competition returns indoors.

Potter said one element of the upcoming season that will greatly benefit the team will be fewer COVID-19-related restrictions. The Bombers lost three seasons in the 2020–21 calendar year to the pandemic.

“Living in constant fear of ‘wsick COVID[-19 end] another season? That stuff takes a lot out of you,” Potter said. “Now we can just breathe and get back to normal.”

Potter also stressed the importance of managing expectations from year to year as well as maintaining a strong culture of camaraderie and kinship. Although athletics isn’t typically known as a team sport – athletes compete individually for a team score – Potter said she feels one of the team’s greatest strengths is its sense of togetherness.

“A lot of people just assume that athletics isn’t a team sport, and I feel like our program is the exact opposite of that,” Potter said. “We’re a strong program from top to bottom and we want to keep that thought process going.”

Altonen, a junior pole vaulter, said the team has grown closer through shared off-track experiences, like cooking competitions with the coaching staff. She said these types of experiences help keep a team’s morale and camaraderie at high levels over the course of a season.

“It’s just a really good opportunity to get to know the team outside of practice,” said Altonen. “The biggest thing for me is getting comfortable with pushing myself and having the captains drills and the chances to bond with the team has been great.”

At the start of her first season as a senior, Altonen also said she felt a sense of mentorship and responsibility towards the younger athletes. The team goes into the indoor season with 29 underclassmen.

“This year, a lot of seniors were loud in the lift room, encouraging everyone to put on more weight,” Alton said. “We want to encourage everyone to be communicative to be the best team we can be.”

At the start of the season, Altonen said her individual goals are to win a national title as well as secure another All-American honor.

Senior long jumper Sara Brown said one definition of success for her as captain is watching the other women on the team set personal records as well as stay healthy.

“Seeing my teammates achieve their goals [is what a successful season would be to me]’ said Brown. “We always talk about our goals at the beginning of the season and see how the other girls achieve what they set out to do … both mentally and physically [is important].”

Potter added that managing the transition from outdoor to indoor competition is another critical factor in team success. She said the coaching staff designs the training schedule to ensure every member of the program is ready for their event year-round, even if that includes training for outdoor competitions while the indoor are still running.

“We had to launch some of our outdoor events during the indoor events otherwise we wouldn’t have enough time to prepare,” Potter said. “It’s a lot of careful design of training and programming, and the coaching staff always has to be on our A-game.”

The Bombers begin their season December 3 at Cornell University in the Greg Page Relays.

SAN DIEGO – The San Diego State Department of Athletics hosted its signature dinner with an Aztec event last week, bringing together 41 professionals from multiple industries and 59 top-ranking student athletes for a unique and diverse networking event. The event is a unique opportunity for student athletes to interact with professionals and learn more about various interesting professions.

Generously sponsored by E&J Gallo, Northwestern Mutual, ALDI, Kim Spinardi, CPA, Hamilton Tharp, LLP, XanderVison Medical Consultants and SeaSpine, the eighth annual Dinner with an Aztec is an integral part of the Aztecs Going Pro program, which teaches student athletes to… to become the next generation of community leaders and talented young professionals.

“Dinner with an Aztec gave me an opportunity to ask a professional in the field specific questions about my budding nursing career,” said Onyi Anigbogu, a senior track athlete and student interested in nursing. “The advice I received will help me feel more confident as I wrap up the nursing program application season.”

“Our Aztec Dinner Event is an integral part of our Aztecs Going Pro development program for students and athletes,” said SDSU Athletics Director John David Wicker. “I’m very grateful to the professionals who volunteered to meet our student-athletes and help them build their professional networks. The fact that student-athletes have played in their success was important for our current student-athletes to hear. I’m also proud of our student-athletes who are ready to seize the opportunity to prepare for the next step in their journey.”

San Diego State URAD Senior Director of Marketing & Communications Tammy Blackburn, an SDSU graduate and former basketball student and athlete, hosted the evening and provided dynamic energy. The keynote speakers were Spencer Thornton, Project Manager – Corporate Acquisition and District Manager at ALDI and former baseball player, and Jason Alexander, Owner/Sales Manager at XanderVision Medical Consultants and former soccer player.

“I’m particularly proud of this group of seniors who have not only made a difference in their sport, but have really raised the bar of Aztec’s Going Pro by working hard to hone the skills and tools they use need to be successful for a lifetime after sport and SDSU,” said Danielle Kelly, SDSU Assistant Athletic Director for Student Athlete Development. “They were the most prepared group of seniors I have ever seen as they had the opportunity to attend a network with an Aztec on September 27th which allowed them to practice networking with 40 employers.

“These senior student-athletes have completed over 64 hours of civic engagement, personal growth and career development program during their time with SDSU by completing a 1-unit student-athlete development course each year.”

Dinner with an Aztec is an integral part of Aztec’s Going Pro, a comprehensive, four-year development program for students and athletes that focuses on three pillars: personal growth, career advancement, and community involvement. Student-athletes receive innovative programs, one-on-one coaching, and unique experiential learning opportunities annually to help them create and prepare their postgraduate plans and build a strong network of connections available through the San Diego State University community. The Aztecs Going Pro program consists of four one-unit courses that count towards the degree requirements.

There are certain aspects of Brush that you can always be sure of.

There will be this Arc mascot.

There will be a few incarnations of brown and gold colors worn by its student-athletes.

And for a generation, there always seems to be Joe Repice.

That fall, Repice tagged 2,500 events recorded as a brush videographer in seven sports for his alma mater, a cherished and constant part of Arcs sporting life through all seasons.

The 2,500. Event was to be a football doublehead on October 10th when Brush welcomed Euclid to Korb Field in Lyndhurst. But demonstrating his all-round value, the milestone came early, as he was asked to also shoot six away games for the Arcs volleyball team this fall.

Anyway, Repice was honored in a brief pre-game ceremony on October 10.

“This achievement,” reads part of an announcement, “is truly remarkable and something that will never be eclipsed in the history of our school.”

That achievement began in earnest during Repice’s first year in 1998.

“I really couldn’t do youth sports,” said Repice. “My mother worked two jobs, so I never got to drive to games or practice. So when I got a little older and got into high school, here I was able to bike to school and bike to workouts. I signed up for football, just wanted to be part of a team. I didn’t care. Actually, I was a team manager.

“About six or seven games into my freshman year, they were like, ‘Hey, do you want to try filming and get the camera rolling? I said, ‘Sure.’ It was a hobby of mine. My grandfather taught me how to operate a camera with VHS cameras when I was 5 and I could program a VCR by 5 or 6, stuff like that. Basically, I just started filming.”

From there, and this request from former longtime Arcs boys football coach John Scramling, a commendable journey continued that continues to this day.

After graduating from Brush in 2002, Repice went to Tri-C but noted that “life took over”. After graduating, he returned to Brush to watch his former teammates play football and was again asked to handle the camera.

First it was football. Then came boys basketball in 2003 and girls basketball and soccer in 2004.

“So I just take something with me every year,” Repice said. “And frankly, it gives me something to do. And it has become second nature.”

Repice works with the ground crew Beechmont Country Club in Beachwood, where his work day ends around 3 p.m

This gives Repice the flexibility to not only record varsity events in Brush, but also the underclassmen.

“I count freshmen and I count JV,” Repic said. “That’s the time I have to sit there and operate the camera, which I don’t mind. I thought if the younger kids see it early in their careers they’ll be better off and know how to position themselves when they get to varsity.”

Refined through more than two decades of experience, Repice’s approach stems from Scramling’s original request for football games.

“All he said was, ‘Keep the ball in the middle of the screen,'” Repice said. “That was my mantra, and it basically worked in everything we need. We get a solid group so they can see their positioning. Soccer, I need to make adjustments with all 22 in shot.

“Honestly, I’m getting in. I take losses seriously. I take profits. I celebrate with them. All teams love me, I have the feeling. I feel like I’m a positive influence on them.”

Repice’s responsibilities aren’t just limited to being a videographer. He also warms up and critiques the soccer goalies and takes shots during pre-game warm-ups for both boys’ and girls’ basketball.

Brush Boys football coach Michael DiMatteo has seen the reaction as the goaltenders’ continuous improvement earns Repice’s approval.

“The goaltenders always accept this praise with a smile on their face and show us why we chose this profession, to the delight and excitement of the student-athletes here at Brush,” said DiMatteo. “Joe is the epitome of joy and excitement to all of our sports programs here at Brush – never see him bring you down over anything, even when our sports teams are losing.”

For Arcs girls soccer coach Tim Foerg, the association dates back to his days as a scramling assistant and repice as a student athlete.

“It’s been great to have Joe in our programs over the years,” Foerg said. “Joe was a hard worker then and still is today. His enthusiasm for our football programs and his general support for Brush rubbed off on all of us.

“He’s a real Brush alum. His video recording of our games and uploading it to HUDL was a great help to me as he helped my team tactically and scouted opponents. We were very fortunate to have him on our programs.”

Repice has also been into athletics in recent years and says he would have added the sport years ago had he known how much fun it would be.

Boys track and field coach Cecil Shorts has witnessed this commitment since moving to the school district in 2007 and commends the value of Repice.

“Since then, I’ve witnessed his incredible dedication to Brush athletics as the school’s sports videographer,” Shorts said. “As a long-time coach, many volunteers have helped me in my efforts to educate athletes through sport over the years, but none compare to Joe.

“Having someone dedicated to filming our sporting events allows colleges across the country to discover our athletes, provide our coaches with high-quality footage to study for evaluation and improvement, and countless historic sporting moments preserve the creations of our great athletes.”

Repice’s favorite event of the 2,500+ attendees was the 2010 Girls’ Basketball Division Regional Semifinals of Brush vs. Twinsburg and Malina Howard, who won basketball as a senior Ms. in 2011 and played in Maryland. The Arcs fell in a heartthrob at Canton Civic Center, 53-51 — “We almost upset them,” Repice said.

That tone in that statement – and the dedication Repice has shown to his craft since Day 1 in 1998 – is a testament to why Repice is considered a brush constant.

Seemingly as sure as the bow and the brown and gold.

“It started as a hobby and just became second nature,” Repice said. “Like ‘OK, what game do I have at Brush today?'”
