MySportsResults.com started out in the winter of 2000 as a way to provide a service to the minor high school sports in Connecticut, such as cross-country, indoor and outdoor track and field. Typically, these sports were not covered in-depth by any other state media. The emphasis on high school track and field and cross country is also due to the commitment and dedication of two persons, myself and my father-in-law, Lindy Remigino, two-time US Olympic Gold Medal winner and former Hartford Public HS Track & Field coach.
For many years while he was actively coaching at Hartford Public High School, Lindy had maintained the official records books for the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference for the sports of cross country and track and field. After he retired, Lindy continued to maintain the records but asked me to start help publicizing them. As a former coach at the high school and college level, I'd always had a love for the sport and so I started my second "career" with Lindy. In the late 80's through the 90's, Lindy maintained the records while I published them in hardcopy for distribution at the various state meets. As of the 2004 cross-country season, I have assumed all the record-keeping responsibilities although Lindy still keeps indirectly involved as a life-time fan of Connecticut, national and international track & field.
After the 1999 State Open Cross Country meet, the impact of steadily rising print costs gave birth to the idea to migrate the record books to the Internet as a web site. What had started as a way to distribute records grew steadily into the current state-wide coverage of cross-country and track and field, on a meet by meet basis for all three seasons. The late night and early morning hours spent searching, reviewing and updating the site with meet results, photos and records is now a habit that I manage with my part-time ‘day’ job.
The companion EZ Meet Services website was developed in 2009 to more easily manage invitational and conference meets where meet management services are provided to meet directors and for easier meet registration for coaches. EZ Meet Services utilizes the NSAF Head Count event entry system for all the Featured Meets in Cross Country, Indoor and Outdoor Track & Field.
I've had the honor and pleasure to attend many of the State Class and Open Championships, a few New England meets, some national meets and several invitational meets in order to watch our state athletes compete. Every season I’m amazed by the dedication and hard work by our state athletes and coaches as they strive for excellence.
It is my pleasure to be 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!
MySportsResults.com plans to provide extended meet coverage using the various social media tools in order to personalize performances that includes new meet records coverage.
EZ Meet Services mission will continue to provide quality and timely meet management service by keeping the best interest of the athletes in mind while making it easier for coaches, meet directors and timing services.
To all the fans, athletes and coaches in Connecticut:
Thanks for Your Support!
