What is this, my friend? You, the one who never makes plans, have cobbled this one together from the remnants of the morning. You really shouldn’t be left alone, you know, but it was with relish that you contemplated an afternoon of dead rest, owing to their shopping and a movie plans. Out the doorway they […]

I think it was when I came home from Uganda that I really started to have trouble sleeping. The depression that washed over me, like I mentioned before, from not completing my whole two years, and then moving only a few months later, really started to mess with my ability to actually get to sleep […]

RIVERSIDE – Jim McCarron had seen enough of the laziness. He had had enough of the laissez faire attitude. And he had heard enough of the lackadaisical approach to training, where video games took precedence over video training and Netflix took priority over net results on the track. So McCarron, the longtime Riverside City College track and field coach, pulled his men’s track team into a meeting before the Orange Empire Conference Finals and went to the last button in his considerable arsenal of motivating buttons. The ultimatum button. “We had a moment where I brought them in and said this can’t happen anymore. They’re really good guys, but the focus isn’t there,” he said. “So we had a meeting where I told them they have to focus or walk out that door. And I had three guys walk out. “For the rest of the guys, I told them we’re all-in and that totally changed the dynamic of the season.” That season dynamic now includes a state championship, McCarron’s seventh in track and eighth overall in his 12 years at RCC. The Tigers responded so well to McCarron’s ultimatum last weekend that they went to the College of San Mateo and won the California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) state title by 43 points over Mt. San Antonio College. RCC’s title, its first since 2014, came in dynamic and dominant fashion. Sprinter Antonio Mitchell was named the state runner of the year after capturing state titles in the 100 meters (10.21 seconds), 200 (21.16) and the 4×100 relay (40.17) with Jamal Palmer, William Dower and Keylan Dennis. And, to cap a rare double for the team, Alec Jones was named the state thrower of the meet after winning the hammer (54.16 meters) and finishing second in the discus. Teammate Marcos Gonzalez won the javelin (61.46). The Tigers put Mohamed Mohammed on the podium in the 800 (1:53.78/second), Dennis in the 400 (47.36/third) and Enrique Villa in the 1,500 (3:59.72/third). “The key was having strength in every event area,” McCarron said. “We were good in throws, jumps, sprints and distances and we just overwhelmed everyone with that.” McCarron’s specialty is sports psychology and he could be excused for feeling overwhelmed this season. He said this was a team that needed him to push every button in the motivational arsenal, from bringing in sports psychologists as guest speakers to bringing in people who had gone through personal issues, like several of his athletes. The struggle to refocus his wayward team lasted for 75 percent of the season. Finally, McCarron called the team meeting and told them he wasn’t bending on this. If that wasn’t enough, the carrot of the 268 previous RCC athletes who have earned track and field scholarships was brought up. McCarron was going to reach this team or blow things up trying. “It was a very challenging experience for me in that I had to pull out every coaching strategy you can possibly have to motivate these young men to be good teammates and good men,” he said. “And they pulled it out in the end. That’s what made this special at the end. “It was very special for us as a coaching staff to see them turn it around. It was not an easy season, but it was very rewarding.” It was also rewarding for the RCC women, who finished second with 82.5 points. The 4×400 meter relay team of LaDaijah Wright, Alana Wilson, Annayah Pelt and Madeline Corner won a state title in 3:53.83, as did Angelique Hudson in the shot put (13.96 meters).
