RIVERDALE, NY – Manhattan College Athletic Hall of Fame member John Lovett ’73 has been named an assistant coach with the men’s and women’s cross country/track & field programs.  The 1997 Hall of Fame inductee ran on the Jaspers’ world record-setting distance medley squad at the 1973 NCAA Indoor Championships, which clinched the team title for Manhattan.
 
“I’m glad to be back at Manhattan,” Lovett said.  “This is an exciting time for the school and the program, and I’m excited to be a part of it.  I’m very fortunate to work with Kerri (Gallagher).  She brings a wealth of knowledge and experience, having set school records in high school & college and now running at the elite level.”
 
While at Manhattan, Lovett was a five-time All-American and two-time IC4A champion.  He also won four straight Metropolitan Indoor Championships in the 1000 yards.  At the 1973 NCAA Indoor Championships, Lovett ran the leadoff half-mile leg in the distance medley relay.  He posted a split of 1:53.2, as the Jaspers set a world record (9:43.8) in the event.  Manhattan went on to win the team championship, its first national title in any sport.
 
He returns to Riverdale after a successful 16-year career as the head coach at Bishop Kearney High School in Brooklyn.  Lovett guided the Bishop Kearney cross country team to five Brooklyn Conference championships and three Brooklyn/Queens titles.  He also mentored individual Brooklyn/Queens champions in both indoor and outdoor track & field, as well as cross country.  Kerri Gallagher, Manhattan’s Head Coach for Cross Country, Mid Distance and Distance, attended Bishop Kearney, where she was coached by Lovett.
 
“We’re beyond thrilled to have John join the staff,” Gallagher said.  “His experience with Manhattan cross country and track & field is unique and a great resource for our young athletes, giving them a link to our great tradition.  As an All-American and Hall of Famer, he knows how to excel training and competing in New York City.  On a personal level, I’m excited to work with the man who introduced me to running, and I’m looking forward to sharing that with our athletes.”
 
In addition to the distance medley relay, Lovett still holds the school record in the indoor two-mile relay.  He also set two individual school records (880 yards, 1000 yards) during his time at Manhattan and represented the United States in an international meet against the Soviet Union in 1972.

JNEWS: Alcantara, Marisol [MC????] state Senate district candidate

2016-Sep-10

Micah Lasher for state Senate
The standout choice (NYC Mayor’s Office)
Editorials
NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
Friday, September 9, 2016, 7:44 PM

*** begin quote ***

Voters in the Manhattan state Senate district that stretches from the borough’s northern tip to Chelsea have an unusually worthy choice in energetic, knowledgeable up-and-comer Micah Lasher.

*** and ***

Born in the Dominican Republic, Alcantara came to the U.S. as a child and graduated from Manhattan College. As a Bernie Sanders Democratic convention delegate, she is surely committed to progressive principles, but she lacks seasoning for the post.

The Daily News endorses Lasher in Tuesday’s Democratic primary election.

It’s Marisol Alcantara who graduated from Manhattan, not Micah Lasher.

[JR: Thanks. I misunderstood the story.]

 

 
*** begin quote ***

Lasher faces competition from Robert Jackson, who served for 12 undistinguished years in the City Council, and Marisol Alcantara, an organizer for the New York State Nurses Association.

Born in the Dominican Republic, Alcantara came to the U.S. as a child and graduated from Manhattan College. As a Bernie Sanders Democratic convention delegate, she is surely committed to progressive principles, but she lacks seasoning for the post.

Please remember those who were felled by the Terrorist attack on September 11, 2016, please allow me to share a prayer sent to me by Jerry Lynch in honor of those killed. We pray for them and their Families and friends who still mourn and feel that awful hurt and loss. Thank you Jerry. Thank you.

Let us pray for all the People who were lost in the destruction of the World Trade Center Buildings, the women and men harmed in the rescue efforts and the families of all the above. Also we pray for the incredible Flight 93 heroes who caused the crash in Shanksville PA. and prevented the plane from reaching Washington DC, and for all the dead and injured at the Pentagon. As we know and remember, these events occurred on Tuesday, September 11, 2001. The following wonderful Prayer was written the following Sunday by our own parishioner, MICHAEL O’BRIEN who was in one of the World Trade Center Buildings that morning.

 

Dear Lord,

Our hearts are aching,
Our emotions are in turmoil,
Our outlook on life has become uncertain,
We’re scared Lord

Please deepen our faith,
Make more fervent our love,
Give us a greater appreciation for our life,
And for all the gifts you’ve given to us,
Help us to celebrate life each day

Help us to be more open with each other,
More honest with ourselves,
And more committed to doing your will

Help us to minister to our own needs,
And to those of our family and friends,
And to listen with open hearts

We know Lord, that the power of one persons love,
And also the power of a community of loving people,
Can overcome evil

Help us to stamp out evil in this world Lord,
Help us to win with kindness,
Help us to win with love,
Help us to win with a commitment to always do the right thing,
Help us to look out for each other

Bless our loved ones,
Show us the way,
Help us to be love for one another.                            

AMEN

I will praise the Lord, for you have lifted me out of the depths. I called to you for help, and you healed me. To you, Lord, I called; to the Lord I cried for mercy: You turned my mourning into dancing; O Lord my God, I will praise you forever.    Psalm 30
