Andre Alfred and Diane Augustine. It's hard to believe, but Andre has done the photo timing at 55 of the 85 meets at the Armory this year. If that's not enough, his other job is Cook for the New York Yankees where he cooks them anything they want.

Tom Cuffe-Monsignor Farrell NY. Today Tom was the upbeat, colorful announcer. Tomorrow he goes back to Coach Cuffe. Tom has an interesting background. He was named among the top ten coaches in America by the USATF. He was an all american in high school at Farrell in the 3000 steeplechase. He is in his 3rd year as head coach of the Monsignor Farrell Lions.
