A new blog – about the Saint Joseph’s University Track and Field, and Cross-Country teams

December 3, 2010

This introduces a new blog, about the St Joseph’s University men’s and women’s track and field, and men’s and women’s cross-country teams.  St Joseph’s University, in Philadelphia, PA, has a lot to be proud of, not the least being these teams.  This blog’s intent will be to complement – and supplement – the University’s athletic websites.

The principle audience for this Track & Field, and Cross-Country, website will, I anticipate, be parents, alumni, team members past and present,  and fans, rather than the general public.  All are invited – as readers or authors.

You are invited – in particular – to contribute content, comments, admonitions, and corrections.   Please keep me honest, and let me know if you find this interesting and useful, and what you would like to see here.  Better yet – write (or photograph) it and send it to me! I will apologize in advance for errors of omission and commission – and procrastination.   As this blog is in no way sponsored or endorsed by St Joseph’s University, all errors will be mine – or yours – alone.

Be sure to read Saint Joseph’s report on the meet on the Saint Joseph’s University website:  WomenMen.

The Yale Giegengack Invitational is named, Yale University tells us, for late legendary track and Field coach, Bob Giegengack. “Teacher, coach, philosopher, tireless storyteller, and international leader in track and field, Bob Giegengack spent more than 40 fruitful, exciting years in a career he loved. Helping talented young people to excel, both in their sport and in their studies, met his highest ideals. He trained his athletes, encouraged them, and taught them strategies for success, always with the goal of mens sana in corpore sano, a healthy mind in a healthy body. From each athlete, he demanded the best effort possible, not just for the sake of individual achievement, but also for the good of the team. Beginning with his high school students at Brooklyn Prep, then at Fordham and Yale, and as an Olympic coach in Melbourne (1956) and Tokyo (1964), “Gieg” worked to fulfill his personal ideals as a teacher, mentor, and competitor. After his retirement in 1976, he coached Yale’s first women’s team. The Giegengack legacy of talent, devotion, and high ideals lives on at Yale today. Yale’s Bob Giegengack Endowment Fund ensures that legacy for the future.”

Princeton Relays

February 6, 2011

Well, someone (me) has some ‘splaining to do,

While the St Joseph’s Indoor Track & Field Women;s and Men’s teams have been sprinting, running, jumping, and  hurdling, I have been…well…who the hell cares – I’ve been busy.  My apologies for the delay in posting some updates on the Saint Joseph’s University Indoor Track & Field season.

Nancy and I finally got to a Saint Joseph’s track meet, in Princeton,  and were thrilled to see the team in action, and quite a few of the school colors in attendance.

New York City Gotham Cup, 2011

January 21, 2011

Your faithful reporter is obviously very late wrapping results from last week’s meets.  (Testimony to a very busy week.)   I cannot do better than to direct you to the Saint Joseph’s University’s Track & Field official team sites to read about some outstanding performances by, among others, Nohjay Nimpson (who won the Triple Jump the 2nd week in a row!), Beth Lambright (mile run), and Hannah Boyce (High Jump).

Some of the noteworthy performances by the men included Jon Mazzio (mile run), Michael Yap (Long Jump), Garrett Barbalinardo (800 meter), and the 4×800 relay team (Brian Guterl, Jesse Brooks, Tom O’Kane, and Luke Fischer).

Be sure to visit to the Saint Joseph’s University’s Women’s team site, and Men’s team site, for more of the details from Coach Mike Glavin and Coach Kevin Quinn.  (And please alert me to any errors or omissions.)

Full results of the Gotham Cup can be found on the Saint Joseph’s University athletic website, or here (

This exciting team is giving us plenty to watch at the Princeton Relays on Saturday.
