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 2013, 2,987 competitors participated in our three-day meet.

The 2014 Games (May 8th - 10th) 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, Vermont, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia. Internationally, over the years, competitors have joined us from Manitoba, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Ontario, Quebec and Bermuda.

The 2014 Meet has much to live up to, as last year's meet was one of the most exciting in our history. We are confident that we will have several of the area's top athletes participate, assuring us another great year of Loucks. 

 

If you have any questions, please contact the meet director, Fred Singleton at theloucksgames@gmail.com or jsingleton@wpcsd.k12.ny.us or 914.422.2314. Please note, recently I retired from teaching. The best way to contact me is by email. I will check for phone messages almost every evening, getting back to those who called within a day or two.

2014 Loucks Alumni Honorees

Each year at the Glenn D. Loucks Games we honor individuals in an anniversary year of one of their victories here at White Plains. Last year we were delighted to have WPHS alum Craig Masback return for what was the 40th Anniversary of his 880 Yard Run victory.

 

This year we will honor several athletes for their great performances of the past.

 

  •          Tom Nohilly, now a cross country coach at John Jay High School in Cross River, New York, while running for Monsignor McClancy, won the 1600 Meter Run in 1984 (4:12.2).
  •         Zakiah Modeste, from Mt. Vernon, New York won three trophies at the Games, including her 1994 double victories in the Long Jump and the Triple Jump (17’ 2.25” and 37’ 10.75”).
  •         Ten years ago, in the first year of our Thursday DMR Day, Bay Shore High School was victorious with an effort that, at the time of this writing, is still the meet record (11:42.49). We are excited that several members of the team and their coach, Steve Borbet will be in attendance to be honored. Team members ten years ago were:

Mary Liz McCurdy        3:30.5

Precious Moore               63.7

Sarah McCurdy            2:14.5

Laura Cummings         4:53.6

 

Please be there, on Saturday May 10th, at Noon, to honor them all at our Opening Ceremonies.

The 2014 Games

It's early January and the committee for the Glenn D. Loucks Games has already had two meetings regarding the 2014 Games. With another one scheduled for the 19th of this month, we are putting together what we hope will be a great meet.

Last year we  added two new events and changed another. The change refers to the the Saturday morning 1600 Meters being changed back to its original distance, the One Mile Run.  Our hope is that we can better attract more of the nation's elite runners. Eventually we hope that The Loucks Mile will be mentioned in the same breath as the Millrose and Penn Relays Miles.

As we seek more and more of the talented runners from around the nation, we haven't forgotten those in our local area, Section 1 (Dutuchess, Putnam, Rockland and Westchester Counties in New York). Last year we added a Friday night Section 1 Mile. The runners in this race will be comprised of the top 15 athletes from our area who appear on the Provisional list, guaranteeing them a chance to participate in the meet. The moving of these runners will benefit the runners from other areas, as they will be moved up on the Provisional list.

Our other new event is based upon the sharp increase in participation from the New England area. We are now offering a Saturday afternoon New England 4 X 400, for athletes from the states of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont. Schools from these states will be able to enter a single team per gender to compete against others from these six states in a non-scoring, non-trophy event. Of course, a school can enter this event and the Varsity 4 X 400, but must keep in mind that an athlete may not participate in both.

We are always trying to provide the best meet that we can offer.  Enter away!

Meet Standards -Please Enter Athletes Who Can Meet These Performances

We have revised our meet standards to better reflect our clientele. Please enter those athletes (and only those athletes) who you feel are "capable of meeting the following standards". In the past we have a lenient policy, but please don't abuse it. If you think an athlete is close to these marks, he or she should be entered. If you think on his or her best day the mark could be within reach, again, feel free to enter that athlete. If there is no way an athlete could come close to the mark, please...please...please... don't enter him or her.

2013 in Review

Thursday Despite the weekend weather forecast of potential thunderstorms, the evening turned out to be a nice night. The results on the track were: Men In the East Coast Challenge DMR, St. Benedict’s (Jersey City), Arlington and Carmel provided a classic battle, with St. Benedict’s anchorman Edward Cheserek pulling away and leading the team to a 10:06.40 victory (Arlington 10:07.18 and Carmel 10:10.35). But Arlington was able to field another team that won the Open DMR with a fine 10:23.84. In the Frosh/Soph 4X400, Thomas Jefferson set a meet record of 3:24.81!
