Iconic Senior Olympian and Sports Legend Lou Reicke Passed Away May 31, 2017

GNOSO extends to the family of Lou Reicke our deepest sympathy on his passing.  Lou was well-known to not only GNOSO, but to Athletics from every walk and level from High School, to City Competition, to College Competition, to International Olympics, to Professional football at the Championship Level. He was an acrobat, a weight lifter and a Coach, earning four Superbowl Rings with the Pittsburg Steelers.  Beyond all those formidable accomplshments, Lou was a genuine pleasure to know.  A quet man - a man of dignity - respected by all he came into contact with.  For more, see the Menu Tab below at left, "IN MEMORIAM."

Excellent opportunity for Track&Field Athletes to compete "with the 'big boys'!"

Meantime, the 2017 GNOSO Senior Games have been completed.

RESULTS from ALL the 2017 Senior Games have been Received and Posted.  Photographs from the Games have been posted as received; however, only a few Photos have been received.  PHOTOS WILL BE POSTED TO THE WEB-SITE IMMEDIATELY* AFTER BEING RECEIVED.

*taking into consideration, of course, how immediately they were provided....

EVENT RESULTS may be reviewed by visiting the Event's Web Event Page, or by using the Main Menu Tab "Results - All."  (The "Results - All" Menu Tab was conceptualized as a service to those athletes who prefer rapid "year-to-year" comparison of Results.  A SIMILAR approach is under consideration to provide year-to-year viewing of Event PHOTOS.)



GREATER NEW ORLEANS Web-Site is designed for easy access to all things GNOSO and the Senior Games.  Use the applicable "Menu Tab" at left to any Event Page of interest.
