Glenn D. Loucks Games
Meet Directors

Ed Kehe
1968-1984

The man who started it all. Ed Kehe was a major force in shaping local and national track history. Many consider his 1966 White Plains High School  to be the greatest team in New York State History (two relays from that team still  hold state records). For his original thoughts about the starting of the Loucks Games, click here

 

Meet Directors 

Nick Panaro, Ed Kehe, Fred Singleton 

 

Carol Coram
1985-1986

A top runner in a time in which there were few meets sponsoring women's events, Carol was a top-notch sprinter and jumper. During her tenure the Outstanding Athlete Awards were inaugurated. The Women's Triple Jump was added, as well as the change from 300 meters to 400 meters as the distance for the intermediate hurdles.

Nick Panaro
1987-2000

Nicknamed the "The Great Innovator", Nick Panaro brought many new ideas to the Games. This former distance runner at Mount Vernon High School brought back the 3200 Meter Relay, while also starting the popular Section 1 and TriState Relays. Nick issued in the age of computers at Loucks. Also added under Nick's watch was the  women's pole vault ('99). Nick, a former Athletic Director at White Plains High School,  remains active at the meet as the Special Assistant to the Meet Director, Advisor to the Meet Director and Assistant Clerk.

 

 

 

Fred Singleton
2001-present

In 1969 while a member of Mt Vernon High School's highly acclaimed track program, Fred ran on a winning relay at Loucks.  A member of the first New York State team to win the Loucks team title (1970), Fred jokes that he has a Loucks record that will never be broken (the 180 Low hurdles).  By adding the Distance Medley Relay on Thursday, during Fred's years as meet director the Loucks Games has grown to three days. There has also been the addition of the women's steeplechase and the pentathlon. Simply put, Fred loves being the meet director.
