A Golden Anniversary For Coach Groves

Probably few of Coach Groves' throngs of PSU Track Alums realize that he coached at William and Mary for more than a decade.  A decade is a very long tenure in coaching today, and Coach went on the nearly quadruple that at Penn State.  And his charges at William and Mary have not forgotten him at all.

He is being honored at this year's Colonial Relays, an event he created 50 years ago.  They are even dedicating the 1500 M Starting Line in his name this year by seeking donations totaling $25,000. There will be a reception for all of his student/athletes to visit with him during the steeplechase races on Friday April 5, 2013 between 5:00PM and 7:00PM on the balcony of the new Cohen Center overlooking the track.

Our W and M alum insider will be there to capture some stills and videos, as well as greet Coach on behalf of all of us from the only blog dedicated to his memory!
