Welcome to the 50th 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 2017 Games (May 11th- 13th) 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.

2000th Trophy Awarded at 2010 Loucks Games

                                                                                At the beginning of the 2010 Glenn D. Loucks Meet, sThe 2009 High School Torch-Bearersince 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!

New Meet Standards for Loucks Games

Our Meet Standards 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. 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.
