Join us in our quest to build a 
world-class track & field stadium in Syracuse. 

A place where everyone can walk and jog in comfort while 
champions train and compete.

Raising the Bar - Shomari Felder, a former high jumper at Fowler High School, practiced hisskill in the cafeteria and told educators, “we can’t put the bar high enough.”

The Women's Distance Festival, founded by Diane Sherrer and Lorrie Tily, was held in Dryden on July 12. On a stifling summer

Dear Children,

We thank The Post-Standard for the wonderful pictures, articles, columns, results of the sport and athletic performances of our teenagers a couple of weeks ago. I’m thinking particularly of track and field athletes who set records, a couple of these all-time, who performed in all kinds of outstanding ways, running, jumping and throwing. We are very proud of you.

I know that Dr. Sydow is watching, too. I hope that she knows that many of these performances would have been improbable without the seamless movement from indoor track to outdoor track which the SRC Arena provided. We saw the same names of the same youth one season to the next.

With the SRC Arena, Dr. Sydow performed something of a miracle in community spiritedness. Once, Children, she had planned to put in a simple recreation track for her students up on the hill, a place in which OCC students might keep fit and healthy while studying there. But, Children, your coaches, your running friends, your athletic friends and your families got wind of this plan and they put pen to paper and e-mail to ethers and sent these one by one and sometimes twice or more until Dr. Sydow had filled up a large manila envelope with requests and pleadings for a regulation track, so that OCC students might indeed become fit and healthy, but also so that you, Children, could have real track meets. She took that envelope to the legislature and they weighed it, I’m told, and said, We didn’t know you had this much support! And then they voted Yes, which gave to Dr. Sydow the next problem because the place for the planned recreation track was too small for a regulation track. A larger space had to be found. It was found and finding it, she thereby incurred the questions of your fellow athletes, the swimmers. Still, Dr. Sydow persevered in your name and in theirs, too, and she with her magic wand made peace with all of the athletes track and field and swimming, indeed peace and good will with all of the community. We are going to lose her in July, Boys and Girls, but before she leaves, would you put your own pen to paper and tell her Thank You? Fill her mail box, again. Give to her as a going-away gift another manila envelope full of letters. She had you in mind all along and, when someone loves our kids like that, we love that person, too.

We know. It isn’t that running and jumping and throwing were a piece of cake that championship week-end just because of the good will of OCC. Winning, giving 110% on the word Go, is tough. With factors exponentially factored upon factors, personal, intra-personal, inter-personal, time for training, and that little thing about time for home-work, competing at these higher levels would have been tougher still without that quality surface at SRC (no tile floors, no ice or snow, just quality surface and sub-surface), without the regulation measurements of the setting, without the installation of the best in results technology. Things are just easier when one has the right tools. Focus is easier. Results are reliable and universally acknowledged. The SRC Arena is an exciting place and it is usefully placed in our midst. Did you not get your homework done before dawn? Regularly catching sleep, were you not rested going into outdoor season? You weren’t hurt from running and jumping on inappropriate and dangerous surfaces. I know you are grateful, as we your parents, family, friends, and fans are grateful--and gleeful--and I know you’ll give to Dr. Sydow a shout-out to tell her so as she leaves us to go to those others who wait for her community spirit-making magic.

Send your notes and letters to Debbie L. Sydow Ph.D, President, Onondaga Community College, 4585 West Seneca Turnpike, Syracuse 13215-4585.

Thank you, Post-Standard.

Thank you, Children. Seniors, we’ll continue to look for news of you.

Thank you, Dr. Sydow. Much good luck to you.
