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.

Weather Alert

Good morning. Presently it's 6:20 am on May 13th. As you can see it's raining. Soon we will start finishing our strategies on the rain. We will certainly try to get in as many events as we can, but the rains might cause the cancellation of a few events. 

The high jump has already been moved indoors. 

It stinks that after more than a year of planning for the 50h Glenn D. Loucks Games that the rain chose to visit WPHS.
