Welcome to the 49th Annual Glenn D. Loucks Games

 

Since 1968, the Glenn D. Loucks Memorial Games in White Plains, NY has stood for excellence.  We are regarded by many as offering one of the top high school meets in the United States. In 2015, a record 3,449 competitors registered for our three-day meet.

 
The 2016 Games (May 12th- 14th) promises to provide excellent competition for all who participate. Annually we receive teams from all across New York State (including New York City), Connecticut, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Internationally, over the years, competitors have joined us from Manitoba, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario, Quebec and Bermuda.

 
The 2016 Meet promises to uphold the fine tradition that this meet has provided since its inception in 1968.

2015 Loucks Games in Review

The 2015 Glenn D. Loucks Games is one that can be remembered for its numbers. With 3,449 athletes registered and with more than 350 teams on hand, the Games were larger than ever. There were athletes from ten states (NY, NJ, CT, MA, ME, RI, VA, NH, PA and OH) and two provinces (Que and Ont.).

But, perhaps, the number that will be most associated with the 2015 Games is 8:42.92, the new meet and New York State record set by Mike Brannigan in the spectacular Friday evening 3200 Meter run, a race in which three other state records were set (Alex Ostberg of Darien, CT – 2nd place – 8:43.93; Eli Moskowitz of Souhegan, NH – 3rd place – 8:44.79; and Jack Salisbury of La Salle Academy, RI – 8th place – 8:56.55). All in all, the race produced ten athletes who broke 9:00 with La Salle having two and another just over at (9:00.31) – the good news is that all of the runners from that fine program were underclassmen and we hope all will be back in 2016. In fact, of the top 15 runners (by the way 15th place was 9:18.72) 8 could be returning for another 8-lapper in 2016.

Other meet records that were set were:

  • Outstanding Male Field Athlete, Rayvon Grey of Beacon leaped an incredible 24’ 9.75” to set a new record in the Long Jump, replacing one of the oldest records on the our books (1981)
  • Brenessa Thompson 11.83 (into a head wind) for the 100 meters
  • And in the last field event of the meet, Kristina Insingo (Holy Trinity) bettered the meet record in the Discus by one inch with a throw of 143’ 8”
  • Shota Nakamura of Edgemont set a new record in the Section 1 Mile at 4:26.55
  • Ridgefield in the Open DMR (12:13.90)
  • In the New England 4X4 Bishop Feehan ran 3:27.69.

 

Other highlights:

  • The aforementioned Outstanding Male Field winner, Rayvon Grey topped the meet record set by Dwayne Pugh of H.D. Woodson (D.C.) – 24’ 8.5” set in 1981.
  • The Outstanding Female Field winner Shayla Broughton of Medgar Evers set a new record in the Pentathlon (3318 points) surpassing by two the 2012 effort of Betsey Garmick of Bishop Guertin (NH).
  • The Outstanding Female Running Award went to Sammy Watson of Rush-Henrietta (Rochester, NY) who won three trophies. On Friday, she won the 800 Meters with the seventh fastest time in meet history (2:08.73). She won twice on Saturday, winning the 400 Meters 53.59 (the fourth fastest in meet history) before anchoring the 4 X 400 in a time of 3:47.65) that just missed the tenth fastest time in history 3:47.54.
  • Two athletes shared the Outstanding Male Runner Award. Mike Brannigan’s efforts in the 3200 Meters had to be recognized, as he was victorious in what might arguably have been the best race in the nation for the entire season. Mount Vernon’s Rai Benjamin had one of the best meets in Loucks history, missing a triple-trophy effort by 0.003 seconds. It was by that margin on Friday that he lost the 100 Meters to Mount St. Michael’s Anton Porter (10.683 to 10.686 – performances which rank # 6 and 7, respectively). On Saturday he won the 400 Meters (46.67) and the 400 Intermediate Hurdles (51.71) each being the second fastest in meet history.
  • Annie Heffernan of St. Ursula of Cincinnati became the first athlete to compete at Loucks from Ohio. After arriving in New York at 1:00 A.M., she won the Loucks Mile (4:49.47) with the sixth fastest time in meet history.
