Too close to call? Maybe. But not too close to catch.

The 2009 GLIAC Track and Field Championships are going on “up the hill” right now at Hillsdale College and if you don’t find people running in circles exciting — think again.

The Hillsdale Charger men’s 4×100 meter relay team took third in the event finals about an hour ago, but as this photo shows, they were literally steps away from a team crown.

This is phenomenal technology, especially for the D-II level in my opinion. I’m used to it for multi-million dollar NASCAR and Indy Racing League events, but the picture quality is spot-on and it captures how the slightest misstep, sorry I had to say it, can cost you or your team preciosu milli-seconds.

Check out the live stats from the meet that are continually being updated in case more of this is taking place over the next few hours.

I am what you think I am — a journalist. Actually when I was hired at my current job, which by the way is Sports Editor of the Hillsdale Daily News in Hillsdale, Mich., I applied for a position titled "Wordsmith", so at my best I'll call myself a writer attempting to be a wordsmith extraordinaire.
