McLatchie’s Girls now Number One in USA.   See the rankings  here

The latest coach to be profiled is Tommy Boyle.   The profile is now complete and you can access it by clicking on his name.   In four parts with a page of comments from others who know him, it is a bit of an education about a coach who started like the rest of us as a club runner but went on to remarkable things.

Summit HS girls squad is now Number One in the USA – a tribute to the work done under Scots coach Jim McLatchie and his wife Carol.   Their Junior Varsity teams in particular – although not exclusively – are in great shape just now.  

Alstair Lawson was kind enough to give me a bundle of SVHC Magazine published by Walter Ross in 1988 and 1989.   The issue of March 1989 is reproduced here in full although they will all go to Colin Youngson, current editor of the Veterans magazine, to use as he sees fit.
