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.”
