On Your Marks...
Former Deptford High track team members coached by Jim Hawkins enjoyed great food and reminiscing at a barbecue/reunion hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Hawkins on Sunday, August 17, 2003. Athletes from coach Hawkins' first team right up to his last team shared stories about the "good old days!" Some of the athletes were reunited with each other for the first time in over 40 years! Among those attending were (front row, from left) Sam Baker '61, Gene Harley '64, Kirk Kersey '62, Steve Washington '69, Wayne Jenkins '69, and Roland Hardy '70. (Back row, from left) coach Jim Hawkins, Bryant Heisinger '66, Ken Manahan '76, Ken Love '61, Rick Fletcher '76, Rick Zanes '72, James Washington '73, Gordan Reeves '66, and Sonny Anderson '73.
Another track and cross-country get-together is being planned for the summer/fall of 2009 (scheduling problems forced cancellation of the 2008 event). E-mail by clicking here if you are interested in information and/or attending the 2009 track and cross-country reunion outing.
Below are a few candid photos from the get-together.
