Masters of the Univers-ity

     You have heard of Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Superman, the Mighty Thor, the Incredible Hulk, and Captain America, but they were not present for this Independence Invitational (though they are always invited).  Nonetheless, though these Master’s athletes may not be Master’s of the Universe, their record setting performances on this Sunday afternoon at the University @ Albany clearly […]

The Rise of Adirondack Champions

It was the perfect day for championship competition!  It was not too hot, not too humid, and perfectly sunny,.  It was one of those days you dream of for a competition such as this.  Even the temporary lack of power, didn’t taint this wonderful day.  It was a day filled with excitement, competition and fun, as […]

A President’s Pride!

  A President’s Pride! I can remember as a young boy taking the President’s Physical Fitness Exam in elementary school. The goal was for all students to learn the life long values of exercise and fitness, in order to live a long, healthy, happy life. So it is true for 93 year old, Bob Matteson […]

Breaking the Record, What a Classic

It was Hazy, Hot, and Humid, but it didn’t break the record heat of 95 degrees at the inaugural Constitution Classic of 2005 in Niskayuna.  But, the weather didn’t keep Rayshawn Byard (Pictured Above) of the ICSS (International Charter School of Schenectady) Jaguars from breaking the 200m Youth Boys record with a time of 27.12.  That makes […]

Adirondack Junior Olympian

     It was a perfect day to compete, as long as you were throwing the Discus or the Javelin.  With winds gusting to 30mph, this was hardly the day to set any records on the Track, but it was ideal for Kayla Owens who took 2nd place in the Midget Girls Discus Throw with a […]

Presidential High

     It is not likely that he will ever run for President, but it is certain that Dan Olson achieved a Presidential High with this jump at the President’s Open at Queensbury High School on Saturday, June 16, 2007.  With a jump of 7′ (shown above) Dan took 1st place in the Open Men’s […]
