LOUCKS GAMES: St. Benedict's, Ward Melville take DMRs on Day 1 May 12, 2011

WHITE PLAINS – St. Benedict’s coach Marty Hannon couldn’t help but think about what could have been. When senior Tahlief Jackson transferred from Patterson to the New Jersey private school powerhouse, the rules said he had to sit out 30 days. That meant he had to watch his new team from the stands at Penn Relays.

Tre Bracey isn’t afraid of the moment. Not even an audience of 50,000 at Penn Relays could faze him. The Hamilton senior stayed in his own head, in his own world. All to a James Brown soundtrack.

Watkins runs 1:50, eyes 1600; Boston jumps NYS #1 LJ May 14, 2011

WHITE PLAINS – Zavon Watkins ran the fastest 800 meters of his high school career Friday and one of the best in the country. But the Liverpool junior and indoor 800 national champ, stood outside the track talking about what he still had to prove.

CLARIFICATION: Cuffe's estbalishes 1600 record, NOT mile May 15, 2011

In a story posted last night, I wrote that Cornwall senior Aisling Cuffe broke a New York State record when she won the 1,600 at the Loucks Games Saturday in 4:40.56. The time, when converted to a full mile, would equate to 4:42.19, which is faster than the mark set by Saratoga Springs' Nicole Blood (4:42.40) in 2004. However, that information is incorrect. Record-keepers do not accept such converted times since the 1,600 is about nine meters short of a full mile.
