  • News: The Sun Shone on Sarah

    It was one of those magical days when the wind made the United States flag and the Olympic flag that flew above Great Neck North High School wave in sync against a sparkling blue sky.

While I recognized his abilities early on, convincing others would be a task in itself. I fondly remember trying to tell others this kid had something special, and many simply looked at me, like I was a few seconds short of a minute and we all know how important seconds are in the world of track. However, four years later there is no need for me to convince anyone that this amiable young runner has proven he has what it takes to turn it on, on the track. FULL STORY
