Glenelg High track teams shine at NYC meet [Glenwood/Glenelg/Dayton]

Glenelg High School boys and girls track teams recently competed at the Bishop Loughlin Games in New York City. The Games are the largest and oldest indoor track meet in the country, and regularly feature the rising stars of the track world. Both Glenelg teams did well, and Miles Mowbray, Julia Nardone and Alexis Newberry broke school records. Congratulations to both track teams, and to the individual athletes.

The Bushy Park Leo Club hosted some special guests at their first meeting in January. District Governor Dan Scott and members of the Glenwood Lions Club spoke to the young Leo members. The Glenwood Lions Club members are extremely grateful to have a District Governor who is committed to the development of the Leo clubs.
