Young's Geiger to step down

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Bob Geiger, who has coached Young to the past two Public League girls track titles, plans to step down at the end of this season.

Geiger cited time constraints because of his dual roles as the Dolphins' head coach and an editor with DyeStat Illinois, a track and field website.

He has been at Young since 2006 after previous coaching stints at St. Martin dePorres, Homewood-Flossmoor, Chicago Notre Dame, T.F. North, St. Patrick and Rolling Meadows.

Geiger plans to remain as Young's girls cross country coach for the 2011 season.

Sandburg senior Lukas Verzbicas wrapped up a successful weekend at the New Balance Indoor Nationals Sunday in New York City, capturing the mile and two-mile titles.

Verzbicas, who broke his own national prep indoor record in the 5,000 meters on Friday, won the two-mile in 8 minutes, 40.70 seconds and came back less than an hour and a half later to win the mile in 4:10.67. Both were meet and Armory Track and Field Center records. The two-mile time was just off the 47-year-old national indoor prep record of 8:40.00 held by Gerry Lindgren.
