DSC_1120.JPGDSC_1096 (2).JPGIn the left photo, Skip Kordas receives the Jesse Lanier Memorial Award from staffer Gerry Robichaux. At right, Amy Holmes (second from right) shares a happy moment with Jenny Hackman, Doug Skelton and Robichaux.
Skip Kordas captured the Jesse Lanier Memorial Trophy and Amy Holmes rewrote much of the women’s record book during the 2016 edition of Northwest Louisiana District Senior Olympics track and field.
Kordas, running for the first time in the event. shared the best time of the day in the 50-meter dash. Running in the 50-54 age group, he matched the 6.75 logged by Dallas’ Mitch Dickson, running among the 65-69 entries. Kordas had the best time of the day in the 100 meters (13.43) and the second-best clocking in the 200-meters (28.33), behind Larry “Super Rook” Smith’s 27.89.

Holmes, in women’s 60-64 age bracket, just kept showing up at the starting line or the field events. She ran 8.45 in the 50 meters, 17.54 in the 100 meters, and 39.43 in the 200 meters. She threw 27-9 in the shot put, 63-6 in the javelin and 63-3 in the discus. An out-of-district performer, the 61-year-old Texan put her name in the track record books twice, only missing her own mark of 38.81 in the 200.

She beat her own age group discus mark by three feet, her own age group javelin mark by more than three feet and had a best for out-of-district competitors in the shot put.

“Her only problem was she faced an all-male selection committee,” said one insider after reviewing the day’s activity. Selectors are certain meet officials and past winners of the Lanier award, who are ineligible to repeat the honor. “Someone might consider awards for both genders in the future,” said another close to the results.

And let’s hear it for Haughton’s Velma Johnson, another first-timer. In the 50 meters, she erased the old mark of 11.19 with a 9.54. But in the field, she really tore up the records. She will be listed as the district’s best in the shot put (23-6 1/2), javelin (40-3) and duscus (44-1).

In the men’s division, 51-year-old Gene Strogen set over-all records in the discus (127-1) and shot put (36-11). In the 85-plus age division, Jimmie Adams (57-6 in the discus and 42-0 in the javelin) produced new in-district records on the day. Dickson matched the 50-meter mark for 65-69 runners and will hold the out-of-district record along side of iconic James Paddie, an in-district runner who posted his mark in 2005.

Other award winners are shown in these photos. Photo 2, Doyle Blasingame, winner of a Distinguished Service Award, is flanked by Lionel Brangham and Ronny Comstock.

And Velma Johnson (Photo 6) beams after receiving the Ken Howard’s Spirit Award.


Linda Brangham was named winner of the coveted Hazel Gay Torch Award Tuesday as the Northwest District Senior Olympics honored individuals for superlative service to the 2016 effort.
Velma Johnson, Jackie Conner, Tony Cole and Doyle Blasingame joined Brangham among those honored Tuesday at the Athletes’ Celebration held at the Bossier Knights of Columbus Hall.
Brangham follows Lillian Trammel in the list of Torch Award winners. The award honors the late Hazel Gay, Program Director of the Bossier Council on Aging who was instrumental in keeping the district games alive after its founding group, the YMCA of Shreveport-Bossier, discontinued conducting them after 1994. Linda has worked tirelessly in numerous capacities through this, her first season on the board of district coordinators.
Johnson won the other “named” award, taking home the Ken Howard’s Spirit Award, which goes to the person who embraces the games with the same spirit the late Howard did. “Ken was part of almost everything offered, enthusiastically helping carry out the activities as well as encouraging his fellow competitors as they enjoyed the games,” recalled Gerry Robichaux, who presented the award. Les Brosset was the winner of the Howard’s Spirit honor last year.
Conner won the MVP Award. “She has been there any time we needed her, any time we asked, with advice and willing hands to help,” said Ronny Comstock, the first-year District Coordinator.
Cole was named Volunteer of the Year. “When something needed to be handled, needed to be accomplished, he was our man this year, We could count on Tony,” said Comstock.
Comstock and Lionel Brangham, the duo that directs the district this year, called a familiar figure to come forward later. They gave Doyle Blasingame the Distinguished Service Award, a new honor. “This is for his long service in building the Senior Olympics into what it is today, making our work so much easier, giving us advice and guidance in how things should be done,” said Comstock.
Blasingame retired after 19 seasons as coordinator last year. In receiving the DSA, he recalled his thoughts when a group of ladies from Union Parish several years ago asked if they could enter our district games because their Northeast District, housed in Monroe, shut down. “I didn’t want that to happen to (the Northwest District),” he said. “So I began looking for someone willing to take over here when our coordinators began to step down.” He said after Comstock and Brangham and their friends work this year, “I believe we are in good hands.”
In other awards:
—Joyce Middleton was named winner of The Susan Berry Golf Award, named for the late coordinator of district golf competition.
—Mildred Reeves was named Female Athlete of the Year.
—James Russom was named Male Athlete of the Year.
—Leon Darden won the Golf Sweepstake.
As individuals arrived at the Athletes’ Celebration, they were presented with an Aloha necklace made of colorful paper flowers. It established for all the theme of Good-bye to 2016 and Hello to 2017, which will mark the Silver Anniversary of the District’s Games. And 2016 will be remembered for a registration of 550 participants, second highest in the district’s history, topped only by a 570 figure in 2011.

DSC_1095 (1).JPGTop female scorers included (from left) Juanita Tucker, Mary Price, Louise Rowell and Linda Brangham.
DSC_1094 (2).JPGA father-son medal performance for Jerry Warren (front) and Jimmy Warren

Donna Cole and Ed Reynolds, two newcomers to the Northwest District’s Miniature Golf competition, posted the low score in their respective divisions Thursday evening at Party Central in Bossier City.

Reynolds shot six-over par 42 to pace the men’s competition, a stroke better than last year’s low scorer Harold Harvill, Bob Taylor and Lionel Brangham, who conducted the event. Cole posted 48 to lead the women, two better than Juanita Tucker and three ahead of Mary Price.

It is interesting to see the attention Harvill draws in this event (he has been low scorer 14 times over the years). When Taylor, who beat Harvill for the honor in 2002, rolled in a hole-in-one on the 18th hole, he realized he had tied Harvill at 43. Alas Taylor and Harville were in the same age bracket (70-74) with Reynolds. Under tournament rules, ties are broken by a scorecard playoff in determining the medal standings and Harvill captured the Silver Medal and Taylor settled for bronze behind Reynolds’ gold.

Brangham won the Gold Medal in the 65-69 age group. Bill Snow and Jerry Warren also won age group Gold Medals among the men.

Besides Cole, Carol Estrada, Juanita Tucker, Mary Price and Louise Rowell won Gold Medals among the women. On the women’s leader board, Tucker 50, Price 51, Rowell 52, Linda Brangham 53 and Sally Vaughan 54 followed Cole. Top men’s scores included Steve Pinkley 47. Jerry Warren 47, Jimmy Warren 47 and Bill Snow 47.


Female Ages 60-64: Donna Cole 48 Gold. Linda Johnson 64 Silver. No Bronze awarded. 65-69: Louise Rowell 52 Gold. Linda Brangham 53 Silver. Betty Smith 62 Bronze. 70-74: Carol Estrada 56 Gold. Jeanette Kohlnhofer 56 Silver (tie broken by scorecard playoff). Marilyn Hainey 58 Bronze. 75-79: Juanita Tucker 50 Gold. Sallie Vaughn 54 Silver. Kay Aldrich 57 Bronze. 80-84: Mary Price 51 Gold. Doris Carter 56 Silver. Retta Matthews 64 Bronze.

Males Ages 65-69: Lionel Brangham 43 Gold. Steve Pinkley 47 Silver. Jimmy Warren 47 Bronze (tie broken by scorecard playoff). 70-74: Ed Reynolds 42 Gold. Harold Harvill 43 Silver.
