2018 Highlights

The 2018 Glenn D. Loucks Games had many highlights, chief among them, the national record set by Katelyn Tuohy (North Rockland) in the 3200 Meter Run. One of six meet records set in 2018, her effort was the signature moment of the 2018 Games - if not the signature moment of the meet's fifty-one year history.

But prior to that, on Thursday, there were some outstanding races. Thomas Wilson's fast 400 meter leg (48.6) opened up a lead that was never relinquished, as Pearl River won the East Coast DMR (10:17.51). In the following race, Sarah Flynn's 4:57.231 anchor leg secured the win for a determined Ursuline squad, as they won the East Coast DMR in 12:13.80.


The first meet record of 2018 was set by Pearl River in the women's Open DMR (12:13.49), a time that was faster than the East Coast time (only the second time that that has happened).

Friday had beautiful weather and the athletes responded with fast times. From the first fifty meters of the race, one could sense that Katelyn Tuohy was about to do something special. "Something special" is an understatement! Her aforementioned national record had those in attendance standing in the bleachers. Her time of 4:45.946 for the first 1600 meters was similar to the time in which she won the Loucks Mile the next day (4:45.608). Perhaps more remarkable was the fact that her time for the second 1600 meters (5:02) would have placed in the Loucks Mile too.


Friday featured other great efforts. Carlon Hosten (Taft Educational) ran 21.19 for 200 meters, the second fastest time in Loucks history (topped only by Olympic gold medalist LaShawn Merritt in 2004). In the women's 200 meters, Anna Jordahl-Henry (Wellesley, MA) won a close race in 24.94 over Newtown's Carly Swierbut (24.97).
Sophomore Abdullahi Hassan of Toronto's Birchmount Park won the 800 Meters in 1:52.23. In the women's race, the first athlete from State College High School (PA), Esther Seeland, won in a fine 2:10.47. 

This year's version of the famed Loucks 3200 Meters had six runners break the 9:00 barrier, with a pair of athletes from St Anthony's High School on Long Island, Mason Gatewood (8:55.00) and Matthew Payamps (8:56.06) leading the pack. 

In the field, Samantha Morillo (Valhalla, NY) won the Shot Put (44' 3.25"), the first of her three victories. CJ Licata of Gill St Bernard (New Jersey) won the Shot Put (63' 2.5") by over four feet. 

 

Saturday morning’s first event, the Nick Panaro 4 x 800 had Pearl River set a meet record (7:58.64). One of the meet’s most exciting races, the Loucks Mile was a battle between several athletes, with Colton Bogucki (Loudoun Valley, VA) topping Alex Mocarski (Fairfield Warde, CT) 4:14.64 to 4:14.69. In the women’s race, Tuohy captured her second trophy of the meet in a fine time of 4:45.61.

At about the same time that Tuohy was crossing the line, Kaeli Thompson (Warwick Valley) set a meet record with a 12’ 7” effort in the Pole Vault. Meanwhile Anna Jordahl-Henry won her second trophy with a 5’ 6” leap in the High Jump.

CJ Licata won his second trophy with a monster toss of 184’ 3” in the Discus. Finally, after winning the morning Javelin (117’ 3”), Samantha Morillo became the meet’s second person to win three individual events at the same meet when she outdistanced the competition with a meet record 145’ 7” throw in the Discus.

 

With her victory in the Pentathlon 800 Meters (2:28.72), New Rochelle’s Olivia Morgan set a new meet record (3406 points). Her other efforts were 14.79 (100 HH), 4’ 9” (High Jump), 36’ 1.5” (Shot put) and 17’ 7” (Long Jump). It was her third straight victory in the event!

2017 Loucks Summary 

2017 Loucks Games Review

 

 

 

Rain, rain go away…….

 

 

Thursday and Friday at Loucks this year were beautiful days, but I’m sure that the 50th Glenn D. Loucks Games will be remembered for the torrential rains and low temperatures that accompanied the nor’easter that arrived Saturday morning.

 

Forgotten, to a degree, will be the efforts of seven of the original winners from 1968, who were on hand for Saturday’s shortened Opening Ceremonies. Rather, most people will remember the rain-soaked, wind-plagued images of the day.

 

Here are the highlights of the weekend.

 

 

Thursday:

 

Distance powerhouse Arlington repeated as Men’s East Coast DMR champions (10:15.84), winning for the third time in four years!...  Saratoga Springs anchored by Kelsey Chmiel’s 4:42.9 took home four trophies as they won the Women’s East Coast Challenge with a time of 11:41.57 (the second fastest time in meet history)…Winners in the Masters Mile were Gerry O’Hara (4:55.2) and Nora McGrath (5:29.75).

 

 

Friday:

Newburgh set a new meet record in the Nick Panaro 4x400 (3:20.32)… Tyler Gleen (Trumbull, CT) successfully defended his 800 meters title with a convincing 1:51.82 effort… Kristie Schoffield (Merrimack Valley, NH) covered the same distance in 2:08.46 for a close victory over Leya Salis (Bedford, NH) who was second in 2:08.59…Winner Zakeer Ahmad (Staples, CT) and runner up Nick Dahl (Germantown Friends, Philadelphia, PA) were the latest to break 9:00 in the race that is now simply called The Loucks 32 (3200 meters); their times were 8:58.86 and 8:59.35 respectively…Kelsey Chemil returned and defended her title in the 32, this time the sophomore ran the second fastest time in meet history (9:59.62)…Jacqueline Gaughan (Exeter, NH) was second in an excellent 10:05.71 (3rd fastest in meet history)…Jade Sessions (Carmel, NY) set a new meet record in the Section 1 Mile…Huntington’s Kyree Johnson’s 23’9” Long Jump won the event (8th longest in Loucks history)… New Rochelle’s Kiana Stallworth’s effort of 19’ 3.25 was the winning performance and was the 11th longest in meet history.

 

Saturday:

 

Despite the steady rain, North Rockland’s sensation Katelyn Tuohy ran a fast 4:49.43 to win the Loucks Mile (7th fastest in meet history). Heavier rain slowed down the Men’s Loucks Mile, but the race was among the most exciting of the weekend, as Ben Bulkeley (Fairport, NY 4:21.30), Mason Gatewood (St Anthony’s LI 4:21.38) and Noah Carey (Guilderland, NY 4:21.40) all finished within 0.10 seconds of each other. The indoor high jumps were won by Danny Renwick (Old Rochester Regional, MA – 6’ 10”) and Scarsdale’s Kendall Bensche (5’ 6”)… Only two events were canceled, the steeplechase and the pole vault.
