On This Day In History | 1982

April 24, 2011

MWG in 1982

On this day 29 years ago our beloved track and cross country coach, Marvin W. Goldberg, was honored at the world famous Penn Relays.  During the Silver Baton Ceremony on Saturday, the most attended day of the Relays, MWG was introduced to the crowd at Franklin Field and presented with a Penn Relays wristwatch.  It was the 2nd time that year that coach Goldberg was honored at a track meet as he was named the Honorary Referee at the inaugural Coca Cola/Joe Hilton Invitational in Chapel Hill, North Carolina on January 22nd.

April 24th is a day replete with Penn Relays history for Stony Brook.  In 1936 the mile relay team achieved the highest finish to that point, taking 3rd place.  In 1980 All-American Laura Whitney raced to a 3rd place finish in the 3000 meter run.  Finally, in 1993 Brandon Stuckey, Allan Patrick, Ben Sholl and Lars Brownworth brought home the school’s 7th Penn Relays plaque as they won their 4×400 meter relays heat in 3:31.2.  It was the 1st win for the blue and white in 16 years.
