Welcome to the 48th 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 2014, a record 3,134 competitors registered for our three-day meet.

The 2015 Games (May 7th- 9th) 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 2015 Meet promises to uphold the fine tradition that this meet has provided since its inception in 1968.

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!

Craig Masback Returns to White Plains High School 

Craig Masback, the well-renowned track and field television personality and a 1973 graduate of White Plains, has agreed to return to the Glenn D. Loucks Games. He will be honored at the opening ceremonies on Saturday, May 11th, at noon.

Craig, who still holds the WPHS record for 800 meters (1:51.1c) is known to many for his coverage of many of the top track and field events in the world (including the Barcelona, Atlanta, Beijing, and London Olympic Games).

However, many of us remember Craig as one of the top distance runners ever produced by this nation.  For the mile,  he has broken the four-minute barrier thirty times (with a personal best in 1979 of 3:52.02). In 1982 Craig set the American record for 2000 meters.

Presently Craig is a Vice President of Sports Marketing for Nike, with responsibility for China, Japan, and Global Business Affairs.

It was in 1973, on a sloppy, rain-soaked cinder track, that Craig won the Loucks Games 880 Yard Run with an unheralded time (for him) of 1:57.8, a time, although slower than his usual efforts, was indicative of what that day’s conditions would allow.  So, in addition to all of the other honors he has received, we are recognizing the fortieth anniversary of Craig’s victory at Loucks. Craig, welcome home.
