James Ouyang has left a new comment on your post "Amazing Finish":
Well, the bigger story here is that this is the eighth and possibly last state title for coach Jim Tracy, given his diagnosis of ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) this past June. He is now the most successful cross country high school coach in the state of California.
Holland Reynold's courage and determination to finish the race not just for herself, but for her team and her ailing long-time coach speak volumes and is an epitome of the type of young men and women that have run over the decades under Jim Tracy's instruction.
Hopefully, we can be just as supportive of Jim off the course in his battle against ALS. He will need significant financial support in the coming days. If you want to contribute or just learn more, please visit http://coachjimtracy.com/
