At the beginning of the 2010 Glenn D. Loucks Meet, since 1968 at the Glenn D. Loucks Games, there had been 1,995 Loucks Games trophies awarded. These tropies (actually known as The Olympian) were the creation of the late, world-famous sculptor, Lumen Martin Winter.
The total number of trophies does not reflect the trophies that were awarded in the 5K Road Race, the Master's Mile or the Wheelchair races, but does take into account four trophies for each of the various winning relays in the meet's 43 year history.
According to Meet Historian, Fred Singleton, who carefully studied the results from each meet, "We are at 1,995 and counting. On Thursday, after the Men's East Coast DMR Challenge Cup, we will have awarded 1,999 trophies. Thus, the leadoff leg (the 1,200 Meter leg) of the victorious team of the Women's East Coast DMR Challenge Cup will have the distinction of being handed the 2,000th trophy in meet history. That trophy will have a special engravement plate on it, symbolic of the magintude of the event. I wonder which person from which team will recieve it."
In the only event that the school entered, the Saratoga Springs girls won the race with a time of 11:54.54 (4th fastest in meet history). The winning quartet was Amanda Borroughs, Margaret MacDonald, Brianne Bellon, Keelin Hollowood. As we move forward towards the 2011 meet, we are counting down to trophy number 3,000!
