The 16th Hispanic Games will be presented for the first time this Saturday by the United States Navy. In announcing this sponsorship, Armory president noted “this is a great opportunity for our student athletes to be acquainted with the terrific programs the Navy offers to high school graduates: The chance for an appointment at the US Naval Academy (www.usna.edu) in Annapolis, MD receiving a first rate college education with all expenses paid and the Naval Reserve Officer Training Corps (NROTC), www.nrotc.navy.com, where most college expenses are paid at over 160 participating colleges and universities across the United States. Navy Day at the Armory promises to be an exciting event combining the great spectacle of high school track & field with the added interest in one of America’s great national institutions. Anchors away this Saturday at the Armory!

Carlton LaVong is not shy. He’s not quiet and he’s hardly reserved. The Methacton (Pa.) senior is boisterous and fun and inviting. And as soon as he hits the runway he’s on fire. There’s no spotlight that shines on the jumpers alone so he’ll make one.
