For the last two years, with Cheltenham’s nationally-ranked 4×4 in our own backyard, we’ve been relegated to second place in our American Conference race. With their guys having moved on, and our squad much improved, it was ours to lose with only pesky Upper Dublin standing in our way. Starting in ‘waterfall’ style (no lanes,… Read More


The nice weather enabled us to post some decent performances at all levels. Obviously, Darien’s sprinting was a highlight (100 is #2 PA, 200 is #1 PA and #3 Wiss all-time), and first-teamers Lukas Marcelis (2nd 1600 4:34.98), Cam Christopher (1st 800 1:58.75 PR) and Elek Hohn (1st PV 12-0) did their jobs. Some of… 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.

Cold and windy conditions up on ‘Panther Plateau’ caught many under-dressed (as usual), but goosed the sprinters… Read More


Since 1965, this meet has been the culmination of the indoor season for Delaware Valley schools. Back in the day, indoors was the only chance the PIAA had to show their stuff vs. the Public League, Catholic League and the Privates. Even with the merger, we won’t see these guys again until outdoor States, as… Read More


The way this indoor season’s been going, the ‘Last Chance’ was starting to look like the last chance. Various and sundry injuries, as well as hi-jinks and shenanigans, have prevented us from reaching many of our pre-season goals. Those that have been sleeping on Wissahickon woke up Friday night. There were many notable performances but… Read More


Missing Persons Report: Darien Williams – hip, Shamere Dunswell – back, Ethan Dolberry-Wescott – college visit, Andy Harman – robotics, Ben Hoyer – family matters. Potential missing: Ahmir Johnson bruised his heel during the TJ, but should be back for MOC on 2/21. With three of the four 4×2 legs missing, obviously THAT wasn’t going to… Read More
