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 […]

Patriot’s Invitational; Just a Day in the Park

     As it has been for each Patriot’s Invitational for all four years, the weather was near perfect, with temperatures in the high 60’s and the sun shining most of the day.  For those athletes that broke more than 75 Patriot’s Invitational meet records, it was just a day at the park, as it […]

Simply Masterful

     The Independence Invitational, the final stop of the Empire State Liberty Tour, is open to athletes of all ages, but is also the host to the Adirondack Master’s Championships.  There are many reasons for the creation of the Liberty Tour Track & Field Series, but one of the main goals is to provide an […]

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 […]

Constitution Classic Makes History

     The Constitution may have been around more than 200 years, but that can not be said of the previous records for the Constitution Classic, the second stop of the Empire State Liberty Tour Track & Field Series. The first record broken came prior to Opening Ceremonies, when the number of registered athletes broke 200 […]

A Patriotic Take Off

     Quinn Capitula of the Country Mills Eagles, gives the Patriot’s Invitational a great take-off with near perfect form as he leaves the toe board in the Midget Boys Long Jump. Watching very closely is USATF Official Duncan Payne. It was the beginning of the 3rd Annual Empire State Liberty Tour Track & Field […]

Liberty Tour 2007

     It is almost hard to believe that Track & Field Season is already here for 2007!  It seemed like just yesterday we were shoveling April snow.  But, it is here, and the Empire State Liberty Tour is BACK for its 3rd season!  There are Five Meets in Five Counties, which means that there […]

Official Review

     When considering how to prepare for the development of this article, I thought it might be a good idea to be as professional and thorough as one could possibly be.  I’m not certain if this will ever become part of an “official” document, but you can be certain that it will be discussed […]
