Meet History

The first running of the Glenn D. Loucks Memorial Track & Field Meet took place in May of 1968.  Since then, the Loucks Games have grown from a boys-only, one-day event to one of the largest independent on-campus scholastic invitationals in the nation.   Now, more than 3,000 young women and men compete each year at our elite, three-day meet, where we see some of the best performances in the country.  Several Loucks competitors have gone on to compete in collegiate,  national and Olympic track and field meets.
