70th annual Eddy Meet preview

Lansingburgh High School's Alney Tobias competes at the 2009 Eddy Meet. How will he fare in 2010, his senior season?

Our track and field expert, Ryan Kircher, wrote a wonderful preview piece on the 70th annual William F. Eddy Meet to be run Saturday at Union College in Schenectady.

Sam Gonzalez, a Schenectady city cop, is in his second year as meet director. The former Fonda-Fultonville and University at Albany track star has helped the meet regain some of its former glory as one of the premier track and field events in the Northeast.

"The quality athletes are now coming back," Gonzalez said. "We want to attract all the top athletes in New York State to come to one place to run against each other, push each other and maybe they all might get a nice time out of it."

For the full story, check out Saturday's edition of The Record.

Ryan and I will be blanketing the Eddy Meet with some double coverage tomorrow and we'll bring you stories, blog posts, pictures and videos tomorrow night. Is there anything you really want to read about? Let us know.

100 Meter High Hurdles-Madalayne Smith (Saratoga H.S.,1998) 14.1

Either the name or the year is wrong with this record. If the year is 1998 it probably should be Amber Stanley of Saratoga HS as the record holder. Madalayne Smith is a current athlete. If so then the year of the records is incorrect.

Year was wrong. Apologies for the typo. Smith ran 14.1 in 2008.
She ran a 14.11 today.
