Shaky weather patterns,  along with excavation issues around the concession/rest room building,  threatened to put a damper on this always exciting  and competitive meet. The sky gods where at least   temporarily appeased,  the work crew performed their magic and the meet  went off without a hitch. We usually use this meet to post times in… Read More

The teams that coach all the events (pole vault, hurdles, triple jump, throws) are the teams that compete for the title. With the expertise of Coach Garis in jumps and hurdles and the Leisey Boys in the throws, we put forth the effort every year. So do Cheltenham and Upper Dublin, which is why it’s… Read More

Cold, windy conditions (again) hampered performances and an under-manned UM squad did little for the ‘let’s get psyched’ attitude. On the upside, about 40 kids experienced their first track meet (ever!), as we have 48 freshmen and sophomores on the squad. We just hoped to get some experience, get a good work-out and not get… Read More


Cheltenham may have graduated national-caliber talents John Lewis, Christian Brissett  and Sahir Bethea, but a newly vitalized distance crew, along with Coach Beale’s field event guidance, meant these guys would be tough to beat (on paper at least). Cold and windy conditions up on ‘Panther Plateau’ caught many under-dressed (as usual), but goosed the sprinters… Read More
