As the state qualifier meet got shifted from Thursday/Friday to Friday/Saturday as a result of heavy rain, the final few Edgemont runners watched their weekend plans get a little busier.
The Section 1 Class B championships meet was a great opportunity for Edgemont’s track and field competitors to have one more shot at earning personal records and hitting cut times for the state qualifier.
With 85 degree temperatures at the start of the junior varsity Westchester County Championship meet, followed by a downpour by the end, this bipolar weather signified that it was officially a “spring track” meet. Unfortunately, for the Edgemont Panthers it was also the last for most of the team.
The girls 4x400-meter relay team may only have traveled a few minutes to White Plains High School to compete, but the journey was extra special for the prestigious large-scale Glenn D. Loucks Games.
After coaching track and field for 25 years at Edgemont, Coach Steve Rubenstein was filled with much pride as he organized yet another group of girls to compete at the prestigious Penn Relays.
