20th Annual Penn State Track and Field/XC Reunion

And SAVE THE DATE! The Executive Committee meeting of the Officers of the Group convened and chose the dates for the 2022 Reunion and Coach Groves Golf Tournament. This will be the 20th anniversary of the formulation of this whole shebang, and you better SAVE THE DATE!! So set aside May 13th and 14th, 2022. (Each year will alternate between May and August) We will be going all out for this event and you won't want to miss it. Adult beverages, camaraderie with old and new friends, mediocre golf, AND LIVE MUSIC FROM PROFESSIONALS! Stay tuned...

Another Quiz: Who am I?

Submitted from one of my dozens of readers!  Answers in the comments below.

Hint: He wasn't a Nittany Lion.


  1. Seriously???? Not one track cognoscenti in the group? Sad.

  2. Houston McTear , May 9, 1975, when McTear came busting toward the finish line in the high school state track and field meet at Showalter Field in Winter Haven (a preliminary heat leading to the 100-yard dash final in Class AA).
    The stands were far from full. Not all eyes were trained on what was playing out before them.
    McTear, an 18-year-old junior at Baker High School, suddenly was the fastest human on earth!


  3. Ahh, too easy.
    Houston McTear.
    I'm pretty sure I read he attempted a comeback in the 90s.
    KKOB '80
