Lest we forget those 400 hurdlers, pining for the days when they don’t have to run the dreaded 300/55H or 600/55H doubles indoors.


#5

Quick question. On the MSTCA website, they list 46’0" as the qualifying standard for the Coaches’ Invite on May 12. Is this accurate? Last year the qualifying distance was 41’0".


#6

Haha, this is why we go to Andover. Qualifying marks are for states I say.


#7

Wishing everyone a good start to the season. ~70 degrees, bright, and sunny. Not much better

Middlesex League opens up 4/3.

Happy first day of Outdoor everyone.

Northampton is hosting its Last Chance Invitational again this year on Friday evening, May 11. The meet is sanctioned for all MIAA member schools. We would love to have teams from the East and Central parts of the state join us this year. Information is available on the MSTCA website and here:

The meet is a great opportunity for those athletes that might not have qualified for the Coaches Invitational to compete that weekend - and nearly all the running events are under the lights making for some fast times!

Does anyone have information on Haverhill Invitational? It is not on Direct Athletics yet.


#11

Very nice, to say the least. Can get a little gusty there, however, which can work both for and against runners. Last year, Patrick Kuffour of NS ran a VERY wind-aided 10.96 for the 100. But a very nice surface, not at a Regis College level but close.

Not sure where to post this…

Congrats to Phil Maia of Lowell HS Boys for being selected by the MSTCA for induction into the Hall of Fame.

I could say many great things about Phil but everybody knows how good of a person he is anyway.

Phil was my coach and has impacted many many athletes over his 29 years as a teacher/coach at Lowell High (Phil is class of '78 LHS)

Also, i know the 2 other selections but dont want to say anyting because not sure they have been notified yet but I will say they are both excellent choices.


#14

Oh man that is so awesome!!! What an incredible guy, one half of the Ying Yang twins. The low key answer to Scotty’s high energy.


#15

Well deserved award form Phil–his sidekick ain’t too bad either. Both models for class in our sport.


#16

Just got word that Mike Glennon has also been inducted into the MSTCA HOF. Another well-deserved honor for a well-deserving coach.\

Although I have not coached alongside Mike, he has been a huge resource for me for the past ten years or so (I’ve coached 11 years, but we beat him in XC my first season when he benched a McArdle, so he didn’t really talk to me that year). He is a friend, a colleague, a teacher of mine, and a great guy.

In many ways he and Phil are quite opposite, given their styles and dispositions. But to know them you would know they are quite friendly and very respectful of each other’s teams and accomplishments. I think its fitting that these two great competitotrs, whose teams have been battling as the 1 and 1A of boys XC this decade, are entering the HOF together.


#17

Congrats to all Hall of Famers…is there a bust made like Canton, Ohio?
Who’s the third coach?


#18

A Great Class of Hall of Famers, congratulations to all of them. Nice job and well deserved.
