Rotary Club of West Kaua‘i track meet has rich history

Kaua‘i’s Kimberly Liberato and Waimea’s Jayme Jacinto are neck and neck early in the girls 100-meter hurdles event at the Rotary Club of West Kaua‘i track meet, Friday at Vidinha Stadium. Jacinto finished the event first on a 16.91 run, getting an auto state berth (17.41), followed by Liberato at 17.50 for a consideration time (18.04) after clipping several hurdles late in the run.

LIHU‘E — It is so old it used to be held in Kekaha.

Jim Dawson of the Rotary Club of West Kaua‘i remembers the earlier days of the Rotary Club of West Kaua‘i track and field meet, when most runners competed barefoot on the red-clay track that still surrounds the Lindsay A. Fayé Park near the Kekaha Neighborhood Center.

In those days, the finishing times and winning distances in the field events were all handwritten, and the stopwatches had to be hand-wound before the event’s beginning to make sure they worked properly for the duration of the meet.

Today, everything is digital, but the essence of the competitive meet remains.

Friday marked the 62nd Annual Rotary Club of West Kaua‘i Track and Field Meet, the more recent editions taking place at Vidinha Stadium, with digital stopwatches replacing the wind-up kind, and high-tech track spikes now covering the feet of the athletes.

Blue-clad Rotarians scampered across the football/soccer field that is the infield when track and field events are scheduled, coordinating the various running and field events.

Dawson, as usual, served as meet announcer, calling for athletes to check in for their events, announcing the results, and prodding the prepsters to come and pick up their medals.

The Rotary Club of West Kaua‘i provided the manpower, medals and trophies for the meet, including the team trophy and perpetual trophy.

Ironically, though, because the events of Friday night were timed by hand, the complete results were not available by presstime, so will be included in Sunday’s paper.
