A better man than coach and he is a great coach.

Congrats Mean!

Such a shame the organizers couldn't invite alumni of the program. Would have loved to make the 1.2 mile trip.

Invites via a private Facebook group were out for almost a year. They kept it a surprise from Jonsey so perhaps by making it a surprise some folks didn't know.

I did not, my son did. He loved it running for Jones and enjoyed reuniting with friends and former teammates on Saturday.

On a related topic, I think Danner MTHS boys track coach is approaching 50 years as well.
