FUNDRAISING 101

Being a talented Athlete isn’t always glamorous!  Getting the Gold Medal in the 100m or the Long Jump ends with the conclusion of the meet, most of the time.  In order to advance to the Regional and National levels often takes the work of Fundraising.  Unfortunately, many Athletes like to avoid such, thinking that someone […]

GUARDIANS of the RING!

It has been stated over the years that Track & Field is the “Ultimate Cross Training Sport”.  This is derived from the fact that Track & Field has a foundation of working and training the three (3) Basic Motor Skill Movements, which are Running, Jumping, and Throwing.  In fact, it is likely that if you […]

1st PLACE HAS IT’S REWARDS!

     It was not an easy task, as they began the 2016 Liberty Tour Track & Field Series at a deficit, trailing by more than 100 points.  By the time they completed the President’s Open, the Country Mills Eagles managed to win their first meet, but still lagged in the scoring by almost 80 […]

Liberty Tour Champs

          If I recall correctly, the beginning of each Superman episode began with, “Faster than a Speeding Bullet, More Powerful than a Locomotive, Able to Leap Tall Buildings in a single bound.”  After the results of Liberty Tour Track & Field Championships, I find myself a bit confused.  The Glencadia Bullets from the Adirondack Association were […]

East Region Championships: This was NO Holiday!

      What is the value of a Naysayer?  I can remember quite clearly a handful of people, almost a decade ago, that adamantly expressed their discontent over the very thought of contesting a Track & Field competition on a Holidayweekend.  In fact, even some in positions of “legendary importance” noted the gross inconvenience of hosting a meet at […]
