Eric Causey Races to Individual Title to Open 2013 Season

SAN FRANCISCO – San Francisco sophomore Eric Causey raced to the individual title in the USF Cross Country Invitational Saturday at Speedway Meadow in Golden Gate Park.

The Encinitas, Calif., native relied on a conservative team-oriented start and a strategically timed kick to outpace the competition and cover the 8,000 meter course in 25.11.5, three seconds ahead of his closest competitor.

"Our team strategy was to stay together for the first three miles of the race, and Eric did a good job of that," head coach Helen Lehman-Winters said after the win. "He was chomping at the bit a little bit to get it going because he's so competitive, but he measured it off really well. He did it the right way and really kept getting after it in the last two miles. Obviously, it's nice for him to walk away with a win – it's always nice to open up the season with a win on your home course."

Causey becomes the third USF competitor to turn in an individual championship performance at the home meet. The last Don to win the event was USF's only West Coast Conference individual champion, Cheyne Inman, who took the meet title in 2006.

"I was a pretty good amount behind originally because I was running as a group and I had to catch up to that front pack which wasn't easy and I settled into that for a little bit," Causey said as explained his winning strategy. "It started stringing out and I figured he's only 10 or 15 meters in front of me, why not just try to go get it. I really wasn't thinking about if I was going to get first or second, I was just trying to give it my best and I place what I place.

"I definitely think there was a little bit of a sense in the air when I was starting to run a little harder; a home meet – it would be cool if I won it, and I was like you know what, I'll give it what I got. I had a good summer of training so I figured I've probably got it in me to win it."

Causey's first-place finish helped the team to third in the overall standings and 63 total team points, coming in behind Stanford and California. Jarrett Moore was USF's second man to cross the finish line with a time of 25:50.3 and a 12th-place finish. Nick Hicks completed the course in 25:58.9 to land in 14th. Gustavo Mena, Tom Bradley and Patrick Kunkel each earned a spot in the top 20 for the Dons and counted toward the team score.

"They did a great job of packing through the first three miles, and then everybody found somebody in that second half of the race, which was good," Lehman-Winters said. "The goal was to get as deep as you can into the race as a unit and then make sure that we're working with somebody over the last 1,000 meters, which I think we did fairly successfully."

The Dons have a training break in the schedule before expecting to compete at the Stanford Invitational on Sept. 28.

Women's Cross Country Finishes Third at USF Invitational

SAN FRANCISCO – The San Francisco women's cross country team opened up the season with youth guiding the Dons to a third-place finish at the 21st USF Cross Country Invitational at Golden Gate Park's Speedway Meadow.

The Dons were paced by two top-10 finishes, as the team earned 85 team points, coming in behind Stanford and California. Stanford's team win breaks a three-year streak in which the Bears beat out the field for the team title. USF bested West Coast Conference foe BYU for third as the Cougar came in fourth in the race, 11 points behind the Dons.

"They were third overall as a team, and I'm really happy with how our women executed in the race," head coach Helen Lehman-Winters said. "They were buried in the first 800 meters of the race, and they were really disciplined. They did an excellent job over the last two miles of the race to move into the top 10 finishes that Sarah and Daryl and Lily had. I believe the times that Daryl and Lily ran are the fastest times that USF has had a freshman run this course, so they actually surpassed what my expectations were for today, which bodes well."

Freshman Daryl Phill came in at 18:07.8 to lead the Dons and turn in the best time for a freshman on this course and land in seventh in the individual standings. Senior Sarah Pearson crossed the finish line less than a second later to come in eighth for USF. Freshman Lily Engelbrekt completed the course in 18:16.0 to place 13th in her first collegiate competition. The fourth Don to cross the finish line was another freshman, Lauren Wilch, who finished in 19:18.5 to earn 28th overall.

"I think a lot of it is a testament to the program that you rise to the level of the program," Lehman-Winters said. "Those women are coming onto a team that's a very strong team and they're responding really well to it. I think it's great for them individually, but for the future of our program I'm really excited about what they did today and what they can do in the future."

The 2013 race winner, California's Kelsey Santisteban, ran the 5,000 meter course in 17:26.1 to take the title. This marks her second win in the USF Invitational after finishing first in 2011. This marks the first time an individual has won multiple titles at the USF Invitational, male or female. Last year's winner, Aisling Cuffe, finished in third place as Stanford took the team title with the second through sixth finishers coming from Cardinal racers.

"I definitely feel a lot more confident this year. I had solid training over the summer," Santisteban said after her finish. "Last year, I kind of went into it not really knowing what I was doing, but making those steps up to run with the more elite girls. This year, now I have that under my belt and I feel a lot better about myself and I'm ready to go."

The Dons next test is expected to come at the Stanford Invitational Sept. 28.

While each squad is young, both groups look to compete into late November and earn a coveted spot in the NCAA Championships in Terre Haute, Ind. on Nov. 23.

The men open with the more experienced squad, despite more than half the competitors on the roster in their first or second year of eligibility. Headlining the group of returnees is standout Collin Jarvis. The senior, who redshirted last fall, is expected to be a major contributor to Cal’s lineup this season. Jarvis placed 11th in the Pac-12 Championships to earn second-team all-conference honors and finished 12th in the NCAA Regionals in 2011.

Additional returnees Chris Walden, Jordan Locklear, Leland Later, J.P. Slater and Matt Carpowich have each seen considerable experience in the lineup and will look to build on their performances from last fall. In all, nine Bears who competed last season return in 2013, including four competitors who were in the lineup for last fall’s 2013 NCAA West Regionals.

With the absence of a senior on the squad and 13 of the 19 members on the overall 2013 roster in either her freshman or sophomore year of eligibility, the women will have a very young lineup this fall.

Anchoring the group, however, will be junior standout Kelsey Santisteban, who looks to reach the NCAA Championships for the third time this fall after placing 70th at last year’s national meet. A consistent leader for Cal last fall, Santisteban placed in the top-10 in all five of the meets she competed in leading up to the NCAA Championships, including an eighth-place performance in the NCAA West Regionals. The junior looks to become the Golden Bears’ 11th All-American in cross country since 1981.

After the departure of a strong senior group in 2011, the freshman class played a prominent role last fall and the group hopes to recover from some injuries in the fall and spring to help Cal return the NCAA Championships as team this season. In all, nine Bears who saw action last season return in 2013. The group hopes to welcome Heather Cerney, who missed last fall, and Xochiti Navarette, who was limited last fall, back from injury during the season.

Head coach Tony Sandoval begins his 32nd season as head coach of the Golden Bears. He elevated Shayla Houlihan to assistant head coach and welcomed volunteer assistant coach Chas Davis to his staff for 2013.

The season opens on Saturday, Aug. 31 at the USF Invitational in Golden Gate Park as the Bears begin their quest for the NCAA Championships. A trip to Virginia will provide an early-season test as a select group will compete in Charlottesville against some of the nation’s best runners on Sept. 28. The Pac-12 Championships will be in Louisville, Colo. on Nov. 2, with the NCAA West Regionals will be held in Sacramento, Calif. on Nov. 15. Cal will travel to Terre Haute on Oct. 7 in an important pre-nationals meet as the Bears eye a return to Hoosier state in late November and compete as a team in the NCAA Championships.

Cardinal head to high-altitude camp

SAN FRANCISCO –Stanford swept the men’s and women’s team titles at the season-opening USF Invitational cross-country meet Saturday at foggy Golden Gate Park.

The Cardinal men won for the third consecutive season, edging California 30-35 over the 8-kilometer course that began and ended at Speedway Meadow. Jim Rosa (25:20.2), defending champion Tyler Stutzman (25:20.3), and Erik Olson (25:20.3) led the Cardinal by finishing third through fifth.

Stanford’s women beat runner-up Cal, 20-54, for its first victory in the meet since 2005. Stanford placed five among the top six, led by runner-up Jessica Tonn (17:44.9) and third-place Aisling Cuffe (17:44.9), who ran side by side on the 5-kilometer course and completed the race with wide smiles.

“The team has been on campus for less than 48 hours,” said coach Chris Miltenberg, Stanford’s Franklin P. Johnson Director of Track and Field. “This is the first thing I’ve really seen anyone do this year.”

USF’s Eric Causey won the men’s race with late kick in 25:11.5, and Cal’s Kelsey Santisteban won the women’s race in 17:26.1, pulling away from defending champion Cuffe and Tonn just past the one-mile mark.

“We had to keep in mind the context of the situation,” said Cuffe, a 2012 cross-country All-America. “It was important to stay off of the burners in this meet. The focus is always November, at the NCAA Championships.”

Stanford aimed to run as a pack in both races. The top eight Stanford women finished within 25 seconds of each other – all within the top 11. The Stanford men placed five among the top 10, all within 20 seconds of each other.

“It’s all about working together,” Tonn said. “This is fun, and we’re happy to be back.”

Stanford was cautious with those who have experienced injuries, illnesses, and had long track seasons. Because of that, the Cardinal did not field many who could project to be in its postseason top sevens, both among its men’s and women’s teams. The Cardinal women are ranked No. 8 and the men No. 16.

Cardinal runners who made their collegiate debuts were redshirt freshmen Garrett Sweatt (eighth, 25:36.5) and Kevin Bishop (10th, 25:39.7). Miltenberg held out all his true freshmen and will make decisions on redshirting the men after the Stanford Invitational on Sept. 28, in which they will run unattached.

Before the meet, Stanford runners who did not compete did a hard fartlek workout. Afterward, Cardinal runners who did compete, added to their workload with some additional intensity running.

“Everything has a purpose, and in this meet we focused on running together” Miltenberg said. “We got a good sense of where everyone is right now and treated this as an opportunity to get a great anerobic threshold workout.”

The Cardinal reported on Aug. 29 and had one training session before the meet. On Tuesday, the team will leave for a high-altitude training camp at Mammoth Mountain. The original route was going to be over Tioga Pass on Highway 120, but because of road closures from the Rim Fire in the Yosemite National Park area, the Cardinal will take Highway 50 just south of Lake Tahoe.

Sharkies Video Feature Focuses On Athletes Of The ADP

(Colorado Springs, CO) - Athletes of the American Distance Project are the focus of a four-minute video produced by Sharkies, the Organic Energy Sports Chew, and asks the question "Why do you run?" Sharkies is in its first year of partnership with the ADP and not only provides their organic nutritional recovery product to ADP athletes, but also supports athletes with financial performance bonuses and training camp budgeting.

The video, with training footage and interviews of the American Distance Project athletes in Colorado Springs, gives insight into what motivates and drives elite athletes as disparate as Wendy Thomas, 12th place U.S. Olympic Trials Marathon finisher and mother of two, to August Maiyo, a naturalized Kenyan-American who serves in the U.S. Army and competes for their World Class Athlete Program.

The video can be seen on the ADP's Facebook page at or on YouTube at

Six ADP Athletes To Compete In US 20k Championships On Labor Day

(Colorado Springs, CO) - Six athletes of the American Distance Project will compete in the US 20k Championships to be hosted by the Stratton Faxon New Haven Road Race in New Haven, CT, on Labor Day. Augustus Maiyo (US Army/WCAP) is the top returner after having a breakthrough 3rd-place finish in 2012 which qualified him to represent Team USA at the IAAF World Half Marathon Championships in Kavarna, Bulgaria, where he finished as top American and in 15th-place.

Joining Maiyo will be 2013 South Dakota State University graduate Mike Krsnak (adidas/BRC) who will be competing in his first U.S. championship and his longest distance race yet, along with Tristan Mannix also of adidas/BRC.

Alisha Williams (adidas/BRC) will be making her return to competition after posting the fastest time in the world for 5,000-meters for the early track season at 15:09.73 before cutting her season short due to injury. Williams, who finished 6th-place last year but was the US 15k Championships runner-up, will be joined by Mattie Suver (adidas/BRC) who currently ranks second in the USA Road Running Circuit and was second at the US 25k Championships. As well, Wendy Thomas (adidas/BRC) will also compete as part of her preparation for the US Marathon Championships to be held in October after winning the America's Finest City Half Marathon earlier in August.

The American Distance Project is a non-profit organization whose primary goal is the development of American distance runners to be internationally competitive. The ADP is located on the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, taking advantage of incredible training resources in and around Colorado Springs and Woodland Park. The ADP is coached by Renato Canova and Scott Simmons. For more information, visit

Four Americans Win in Zurich; Three claim Diamond League Titles


INDIANAPOLIS - Reigning world champions David Oliver and LaShawn Merritt carried their momentum from Moscow to the penultimate Diamond League meet in Zurich today, as world silver medalists Nick Symmonds and Ryan Whiting stepped to the top of podium to win gold as well.

Oliver (Orlando, Fla.) led the way for an American sweep in the men’s 110m hurdles. Oliver and Ryan Wilson (Los Angeles, Calif.) repeated their gold and silver performances from Moscow as Oliver crossed the line in 13.12, with Wilson close behind in 13.24. 2011 World Champion Jason Richardson (Los Angeles, Calif.) took third in 13.26.

Recently crowned world champion LaShawn Merritt (Suffolk, Va.) went head-to-head with Olympic champion Kirani James of Grenada and took the win for the second time in a row. Merritt took the win by two-tenths of a second as he crossed the line in 44.13, to James’ 44.32.

Nick Symmonds (Springfield, Ore.) maintained the lead throughout the men’s 800m race, running just behind the pacer through 600m. Symmonds looked comfortable as he crossed the line first in 1:43.56.

On Wednesday night, Ryan Whiting (Port Matilda, Pa.) won the men’s shot put competition held outside of the stadium and featured inside a train station. Whiting led the series from the very first throw, with his best mark of 22.03m/72--3.5. It was a night of consistency for Whiting, as he recorded four throws farther than Germany’s second-place David Storl’s best mark of 21.19m/69-6.25.

The U.S. women’s 4x100m relay team of Barbara Pierre (Knightdale, N.C.), Alexandria Anderson (Austin, Texas), Tiffany Townsend (Clermont, Fla.) and Charonda Williams (Clermont, Fla.) took the win in a meet record of 41.67. Jamaica was second in 41.78, while Ukraine finished third in 42.71.

With only one meet remaining in the Diamond League series, Merritt and Oliver secured their spots as the 2013 Diamond League Champions of their respective events. Justin Gatlin’s (Orlando, Fla.) third place finish in the men’s 100m also secured his series win.

Edgar Wayburn (September 17, 1906 – March 5, 2010) was an environmentalist who was elected president of the Sierra Club five times in the 1960s. One of America's legendary wilderness champions, Dr. Edgar Wayburn was a tenacious and tireless leader of the Sierra Club since the 1940s and perhaps the least-known yet most successful defender of America's natural heritage.[1]

Honour[edit source | editbeta]In 1995, he was awarded the Albert Schweitzer Prize for Humanitarianism[2] and in 1999 President Clinton awarded him the Presidential Medal of Freedom.[3][4]

Biography[edit source | editbeta]Wayburn was a doctor by training but an ardent conservationist at heart. Born in Macon, Georgia, he moved to San Francisco in 1929 to practice medicine, loved the natural beauty he encountered and was a potent force in its preservation. In 1947 he married Peggy Elliott, and together they were involved in some of the key battles of their time to protect wild places so that future generations can explore and enjoy them. In particular, he played a central role in the establishment of Redwoods National Park and the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, as well as in the passage of the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act. Over the years they had four children, two of whom have become prominent environmentalists themselves. Laurie Wayburn co-founded and is the president of the Pacific Forest Trust, and was previously the executive director of the Point Reyes Bird Observatory, where she was instrumental in creating the 850,000-acre Central California Coast Biosphere Reserve. Another daughter, Cynthia Roush of Seattle, is vice chair of the Earth Justice Legal Defense Fund.

Upon presenting the 1999 Presidential Medal of Freedom, President Clinton said, "Edgar Wayburn has worked to preserve the most breath-taking examples of the American landscape. In fact, over the course of more than a half-century, both as President of the Sierra Club and as a private citizen, he has saved more of our wilderness than any person alive."

In an editorial commending this award, the Los Angeles Times wrote, "The White House has made a well-informed choice in selecting Wayburn, 92, as a recipient next Wednesday of the Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor. 'We should pass on to future generations the opportunity to enjoy these places and not have them transformed into ordinary places,' Wayburn said when he was notified of the honor. That legacy is more expansive today because of the quiet work of this committed man."[4]

Wayburn was honored at a 40th Anniversary Gala Celebration as the recipient of the inaugural Howard C. Zahniser Lifetime Achievement Award, given to someone whose life of achievement in protecting wilderness most closely parallels those of the person principally responsible for the Wilderness Act.[5]

Activism[edit source | editbeta]Wayburn served five times as the Sierra Club's elected President, and was named the Club's Honorary President in 1993. During a half-century of environmental achievements, Wayburn led and won campaigns to protect millions of acres of America's coasts, mountains, forests and tundra. Wayburn has left his mark in the following ways:

Establishing the nation's largest urban park, the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Included in the park's 76,000 acre (310 km²) expanse are San Francisco's beaches, Alcatraz and the Presidio
Protecting over 100 million acres (400,000 km²) of Alaskan wild lands with the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act, which doubled the size of Denali National Park, created 10 new National Parks, and doubled the size of America's National Park system
Creating Redwood National Park, and then doubling the park's size 10 years later;
Increasing the area of California's Mount Tamalpais State Park from 870 to 6,300 acres (3.5 to 25 km²). Mount Tamalpais is now among the state's 10 most-visited state parks
Establishing the Point Reyes National Seashore
Establishing Wilderness areas throughout the American West
Wayburn's autobiography, Your Land and Mine: Evolution of a Conservationist, was published in spring 2004.[6] He died on the evening of March 5, 2010 at the age of 103. At the time he was at his home in San Francisco with his family by his side.[7]

David Ross Brower (/ˈbraʊər/; July 1, 1912 – November 5, 2000) was a prominent environmentalist and the founder of many environmental organizations, including the Sierra Club Foundation, the John Muir Institute for Environmental Studies, Friends of the Earth (1969), the League of Conservation Voters, Earth Island Institute (1982), North Cascades Conservation Council, and Fate of the Earth Conferences. From 1952 to 1969 he served as the first Executive Director of the Sierra Club, and served on its board three times: from 1941–1953; 1983–1988; and 1995-2000. As a younger man, he was a prominent mountaineer.

Early life[edit source | editbeta]Brower was born in Berkeley, California. He was married to Anne Hus Brower (1913 – 2001) whom he met when they were both editors at the University of California Press in Berkeley.

Most notably of Brower's children, Kenneth Brower would go on to author a number of books, most notably The Starship and the Canoe about Freeman Dyson and his son George Dyson.

Mountaineering achievements[edit source | editbeta]Brower came to the environmental movement as a result of his interest in mountaineering. In 1933, Brower spent seven weeks in the High Sierra with George Rockwood. After a close call with a loose rock while climbing in the Palisades, he met Norman Clyde in the wilderness, who gave him some valuable climbing lessons. On that trip he also met Hervey Voge, who persuaded him to join the Sierra Club. On May 18, 1934, along with Voge, he began a ten-week climbing trip through the High Sierra, to survey climbing routes and maintain mountaineering records for the club. Previously, they had established several food caches along their planned route, which began at Onion Valley and ended at Tuolumne Meadows. In all, the pair climbed 63 peaks on this trip, including 32 first ascents. On the first day, they climbed Mount Tyndall, Mount Williamson, and Mount Barnard. From June 23 to 26 the pair made eight first ascents in the Devils Crags along with Norman Clyde, and also climbed Mount Agassiz. Clyde called the Devils Crag climbs "one of the most remarkable mountaineering feats ever accomplished in the United States". In the Palisades range, the pair climbed Thunderbolt Peak, traversed to North Palisade by way of Starlight Peak, and descended the U-Notch Couloir. In the Sawtooth Range, they climbed The Doodad, the West Tooth, and Matterhorn Peak.[1] [2]

Following a failed attempt in 1935 to make the first ascent of the remote, icy Mount Waddington in British Columbia, with a Sierra Club group, Brower added winter climbing to his expertise and made multiple first winter ascents of peaks in the Sierra Nevada.[3]

Shiprock, first climbed by David Brower and friends in 1939From October 9 to 12, 1939, a Sierra Club climbing team including Brower, along with Bestor Robinson, Raffi Bedayn, and John Dyer, completed the first ascent of Shiprock, the erosional remnant of the throat of a volcano with nearly vertical walls on the Navajo reservation in northwestern New Mexico. This climb, rated YDS III, 5.7 A2, was the first in the United States to use expansion bolts for protection.[4]

Twelve previous attempts on Shiprock had failed, and it was known as "the last great American climbing problem". The Brower party's success was described as an "outstanding effort" by "probably the only group on the continent capable of making the climb".[5]

Brower made the first ascent of seventy routes in Yosemite and elsewhere in the western United States.

World War II[edit source | editbeta]In 1942, Brower edited and contributed to the Manual of Ski Mountaineering, published by the University of California Press and Cambridge University Press for use in training Allied mountain combat troops during World War II. Techniques described in this book were used by U.S. forces in the battles in the North Apeninnes and the Lake Garda Alps. The book was published in three later revised editions. [6]

During World War II, he served as a Lieutenant in the 10th Mountain Division, training its soldiers in mountaineering and cross-country skiing in Vermont and Washington states and earning a Bronze Star in action in Italy.[3] Brower's role in the 10th Mountain Division is featured in the documentary film Fire on the Mountain. He served as a major in the Army Reserve for many years after the war ended.[7]

Career with Sierra Club[edit source | editbeta]After the war, Brower returned to his job at the University of California Press, and began editing the Sierra Club Bulletin in 1946. He managed the Sierra Club annual High Trips from 1947 to 1954.[8] Brower was named the first executive director of the Sierra Club in 1952, and joined the fight against the Echo Park Dam in Utah's Dinosaur National Monument. Taking advantage of his background in publishing, Brower rushed This is Dinosaur - edited by Wallace Stegner with photographs by Martin Litton and Philip Hyde - into press with publisher Alfred Knopf. Conservationists successfully lobbied Congress to delete Echo Park Dam from the Colorado River Project in 1955, and the Sierra Club received much of the credit. Brower began Sierra Club Books' Exhibit Format book series with This is the American Earth in 1960, followed by the highly successful In Wildness Is the Preservation of the World, with color photographs by Eliot Porter in 1962. These coffee-table books sold well and introduced the Sierra Club to new members interested in wilderness preservation. Brower published two new titles a year in the series, but they began to lose money for the organization after 1964, though many claim they were the primary cause of the Club's extraordinary growth and rise to national prominence. Financial management began to be a bone of contention between Brower and the Club's board of directors.[9]

Building on the biennial Wilderness Conferences which the Club launched in 1949 together with The Wilderness Society, Brower helped the Club win passage of the Wilderness Act in 1964. Brower and the Sierra Club also led a major battle to stop the Bureau of Reclamation from building two dams that would flood portions of the Grand Canyon. In 1964, Brower organized a dory river expedition led by Martin Litton with Philip Hyde and author Francois Leydet. The trip led to the book Time and The River Flowing which galvanized public opposition to the dams. In June 1966 the Club placed full-page ads in the New York Times and the Washington Post asking, "Should we also flood the Sistine Chapel so tourists can get nearer the ceiling?" The campaign brought in many new members. The Internal Revenue Service announced it was suspending the Club's 501(c)(3) charitable organization status. The board had set up the Sierra Club Foundation as an alternative for tax-deductible contributions, but revenues to the Club dropped, despite victories in blocking the Grand Canyon dams and a considerable increase in membership.[10]

As annual deficits increased, tension grew between Brower and the Sierra Club board of directors. Another conflict grew over the Club's position on the Diablo Canyon Power Plant planned for construction by Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) near San Luis Obispo, California. The Club had played a major role in blocking PG&E's plan for a nuclear power plant at Bodega Bay in the early 1960s, but that campaign had centered on the earthquake danger from the nearby San Andreas Fault, not out of opposition to nuclear power itself. The Club's board of directors had voted to support the Diablo Canyon site for the power plant in exchange for PG&E's moving its initial site from the environmentally sensitive Nipomo Dunes. In 1967 a membership referendum upheld the board's policy. Brower had come to believe that nuclear power was a dangerous mistake at any location, and he publicly voiced his opposition to Diablo Canyon, in defiance of the Club's official policy.

Sierra Club board elections in the late 1960s produced sharply defined pro- and anti-Brower factions. In 1968 Brower's supporters won a majority, but in 1969 anti-Brower candidates won all five open positions. Brower was charged with financial recklessness and insubordination by two of his former close friends, photographer Ansel Adams and board president Richard Leonard. Brower's resignation was accepted by a board vote of ten to five.[11]

Eventually reconciled with the Sierra Club, Brower was elected to the board of directors for a term from 1983 to 1988, and again from 1995 to 2000. Brower was deeply concerned about issues of overpopulation and immigration - which was a major factor leading to his resignation in protest from the board of directors in 2000.[12] "Overpopulation is perhaps the biggest problem facing us," he said, "and immigration is part of that problem. It has to be addressed."

Career with Friends of the Earth[edit source | editbeta]Brower founded Friends of the Earth (FOE) in 1969, soon after resigning as executive director of the Sierra Club. The move was timely, as FOE was positioned to grow with the burst of environmental concern generated by the first Earth Day in April 1970. FOE also benefited from the publicity generated by a series of articles in The New Yorker by John McPhee, later published as Encounters with the Archdruid, which recounted Brower's confrontations with a geologist and mining engineer, a resort developer, and Floyd Dominy, the director of the Bureau of Reclamation. Brower so enjoyed being called the Archdruid that he later used the term in his e-mail address.

FOE set up its headquarters in San Francisco, and opened an office in Washington, D.C.. Brower soon spun off two new organizations from the FOE Washington staff: the League of Conservation Voters in 1970 and the Environmental Policy Center in 1971. Brower's international contacts led to the founding of FOE International in 1971, a loose federation of sister organizations in some forty-four countries. Brower also started a publications program at FOE, which had initial success with The Environmental Handbook in the wake of Earth Day, but then began to lose money.

Although Brower's background was in the wilderness preservation wing of the conservation movement, he quickly led FOE to take on many of the issues raised by the new environmentalists. FOE campaigned against the Alaska pipeline, the supersonic transport airplane (SST), nuclear power, and the use of the defoliant Agent Orange in the Vietnam War. After Ronald Reagan was elected President in 1980, FOE led the opposition to Interior secretary James G. Watt's efforts to sell and lease public lands in the West and develop land adjacent to the National Parks. Brower retired as executive director of FOE on its tenth anniversary in 1979, but continued as chairman of its board of directors. FOE's growing debt and tension between Washington lobbying and grassroots action led to a crisis between Brower and a majority of the board that recalled his conflict with the Sierra Club board. Facing staff cuts in 1984, Brower appealed over the board directly to the membership for emergency contributions. He was removed from the board for insubordination, but was reinstated when he threatened a lawsuit. In 1985 the board voted to close the San Francisco office and move to Washington, D.C.. A referendum of the membership supported the board majority, and Brower resigned in 1986 to work through his Earth Island Institute.[13]

Later years with Earth Island Institute[edit source | editbeta]Brower had incorporated Earth Island Institute in 1982. After FOE moved its headquarters to Washington, D.C., in 1986, Brower developed Earth Island as a loosely structured incubator for innovative projects in ecology and social justice. Although he chaired the board of directors, Brower stayed in the background as co-directors David Philips and John Knox ran the organization. Projects were required to bring in their own funding, and often went their own way once well-established. Groups formed under Earth Island's umbrella include the Rainforest Action Network, the Environmental Project on Central America (EPOCA), and many others. Freed from administrative worries and budget controversies, Brower was able to continue to travel, speak and work on many of his long-standing concerns. In addition to his returning to the Sierra Club board for two separate terms, he also served on the Board of Directors for Native Forest Council from 1988 until his death in 2000. A supporter of Ralph Nader, Brower flew to Denver in June 2000 for the Green Party convention. The day before he died, Brower cast his absentee ballot for Nader.[14] He died at his home in Berkeley, California on November 5, 2000.[15]

A monument, Spaceship Earth, was erected in his honor at Kennesaw State University. The intention is that the monument will serve as a permanent reminder to future generations about the delicate nature of our planet.[16]

Sierra Club members in World War II

Members in the Service, World War II [The roster of Sierra Club members who were in the armed forces contains more than a thousand names. It is undoubtedly not entirely accurate; time does not stand still long enough. But the following list has been carefully compiled by Harriet T. Parsons and Blanche Stallings from a recent question-naire sent to members previously listed in wartime bimonthly numbers of the Sierra Club Bulletin and from other data in the Secretary's files. Apologies are extended for unavoidable errors and omissions. It is an impressive fact that a club which entered the war years with ap proximately four thousand members should find one thousand members in the service. The wartime achievements of those members transcends that impres- siveness by far. Most of them have now returned, to enjoy the Sierra once again. Scars of battle will keep many from the haunts they would have chosen. Some will not return. Let those who returned not forget their debt. ED.]

The Warm-Up Lap: Preseason Cross Country

The Warm-Up Lap: Preseason Cross Country
August 29, 2013

NEW ORLEANS – While some undoubtedly dread the return to classes at the end of summer, there is at least one aspect of the back-to-school season to which many are looking forward with great expectation: the start of cross country season.

Lucky for us, the wait is over.

Division I and Division III competition officially opens up Friday with more than 90 meets around the country, while Division II will have to wait to get its start until next Thursday, September 5.

A complete listing of meets this weekend can be found on the USTFCCCA Infozone’s This Weekend’s Meetspage. The page will update each week to provide the most up-to-date and centralized listing of cross country meets anywhere on the web. Once the weekend’s meets are completed, head over to to view all the results from across the nation. An indispensable tool for track & field, TFRRS is now in its second season as the central location for collegiate cross country results.

The ground won’t rumble under the feet of many of the nation’s top runners until later into September and October, but the races in the interim will provide early-season opportunities for young and developing runners to put on display what they’ve worked so hard for over the summer and make an early statement to be included on late-season rosters.

Speaking of the latter stages of the season, it’s never too early to look ahead to championships season. The different processes by which teams and individuals can qualify to the three NCAA divisions’ championships on November 23 are outlined here (recommended: bookmark this page for later in the season). Regardless of division, the road to nationals runs through the regional championships. Division I will hold its regionals November 15; Division II’s will take place November 9 & 10; and Division III is last up with November 16 regional championships.

More detailed information as it becomes available and locations for each site can be found at the Regional Championships Central pages for Division I, Division II and Division III.

This weekend also marks the start of the USTFCCCA National Athlete of the Week award, which will be awarded in cross country for the first time after a successful run during the 2013 track & field season. Coaches, sports information directors, teammates, friends, family and fans of cross country in general are encouraged to nominate student-athletes to be awarded the week’s top honor. A male and female honoree will be recognized in all three NCAA divisions each week (except for this weekend, due to Division II not starting until next weekend). The first award will be announced Tuesday, September 3, with nominations due by noon ET. The award will move to Mondays in the following weeks.

Preseason Rankings
Before student-athletes take to the trails this weekend, the USTFCCCA revealed the preseason National Coaches Polls and Regional Rankings for all three NCAA Divisions, while the NAIA announced its own top-25 men’s and women’s rankings.
