Welcome to MySportsResults.com where we are now entering our 20th year of coverage for Indoor Track & Field, Outdoor Track & Field and Cross Country in Connecticut! Since its inception in the winter of 2000, the MySportsResults.com website has become the oldest continuously published website providing comprehensive coverage of Connecticut high school meets, records, athletes and teams.
As of today, MySportsResults.com has been continuously running approximately 10,026,817 minutes or over 5 million 2-minute 800m races or about 2-million 5-minute mile races.
The continued in-depth coverage of Connecticut high school track and field and cross-country is dedicated to my life mentors; my wife Betty and her father, the late Lindy Remigino, two-time U.S. Olympic Gold Medal winner and former Hartford Public HS Track & Field coach.
MySportsResults.com originated as a modest idea at a Christmas Eve birthday party in 1999 at the former home of my in-laws, Lindy and June Remigino. While talking to my family and relatives, I introduced the virtues of using the new internet technology to replace the hardcopy distribution of State Records, as well as for promoting Connecticut athletes and our sports that were typically underreported in our state’s media outlets.
After the 1999 State Open Cross-Country meet, the impact of steadily rising print costs gave birth to this idea to migrate the record books to the internet by creating a website. What had started as an idea to distribute records grew steadily into the current statewide coverage of cross-country and track and field, on a meet-by-meet basis for all three seasons.
For many years while he was actively coaching at Hartford Public High School, Lindy had maintained the overall State Record books for track and field. After he retired, Lindy continued to maintain the records but asked me to begin helping with publicizing and distributing them. It was a natural fit since I'd always had a love for the sport as a former runner and coach at the high school and collegiate level. Since the 2004 cross-country season, I assumed all the record-keeping responsibilities and administration of the overall State Records while the CIAC maintains their meet records through their meet reporting. MySportsResults.com provides a copy of the CIAC Meet records as a courtesy to our viewers.
Among the other important people who provided early inspiration through their mentorship, knowledge and dedication are former UConn coaches Bill Kelleher and Bob Kennedy, former coach Bob Haddad of Windham HS, Bill Baron of East Catholic HS and longtime CIAC meet director, and Irv Black, the former owner of NorthEast Sports Timing and former coach at New Britain HS.
The first 1999-2000 Indoor season of reporting results and meet photos included only five meets as seen at the archived page from the 57th HPHS Invitational through the season to the CIAC State Open. One of the most difficult challenges was trying to keep in-step with the constantly changing internet technology for website production.
As years progressed and meet management services were being provided for invitational and conference meets, the companion EZ Meet Services website was developed in 2009 to provide meet management services for meet directors and to allow easier meet registration for coaches. As of the 2017 Outdoor season, EZ Meet Services utilized the Athletic.net event entry system for all the Featured Meets in Cross Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field.
The EZ Meet Services mission continues to be focused on providing quality and timely meet management services by keeping the best interests of the athletes in mind while making things easier for coaches, meet directors and timing services.
As owner and operator of MySportsResults.com, I’ve had the honor and pleasure to attend many of the State Class and Open Championships, several New England meets, a few national meets and many invitationals in order to watch our state athletes compete. Each season I am amazed by the dedication and hard work of our state athletes and coaches as they strive for excellence.
The continuation of operating over the next several years has been made possible with the assistance of our sponsor, soundRUNNER with their Scholastic promotions as well as their parent company Marathon Sports. The MySportsResults.com relationship with the owners and employees of each company is built on the same philosophy for promoting the achievements of our athletes and teams.
Just like in the early years, the constantly changing technical landscape and sponsor support provide us with new opportunities to share our content with you. The latest changes in 2019 includes the recent addition to our staff of Senior Correspondent Marty Ogden as well as the addition of a new MySportsResults YouTube Channel where we will include video content of our meet coverage. More changes and improvements are in the works, so please keep viewing!
My children, Dave and Liz, former track athletes and now adults, often remind me of our shared favorite movie quote from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off “Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Hopefully, MySportsResults.com helps you to pause and look at our athletes and teams without missing a beat during your day.
It is my pleasure to offer MySportsResults.com as your local site to the latest in Connecticut high school Cross-Country, Indoor Track & Field and Outdoor Track & Field including upcoming events, results, records and photographs. A sports home you can call your own since 2000!
To all the fans, athletes and coaches in Connecticut:
Thanks for Your Support!
