Girls First, Boys Fourth in Inaugural Dick Frame Track and Field Invitational

MACON, Ga. – There’s no better way to celebrate the legacy of a long-time coach than to have an event in his honor.

And that’s exactly what First Presbyterian Day School did on Saturday, March 12, hosting the First Annual Dick Frame Track and Field Invitational at George S. Johnson Memorial Stadium.

Coach Frame has served as a volunteer track coach at FPD for the past 38 years. During that span he has coached over 20 State Champion hurdlers.

With Frame’s assistance, FPD’s girls have won six state titles spanning from 2003-2010. The boys squad has also captured four state championships during that same period.

In May of 2014, the FPD track & field complex was dedicated to Coach Frame and a new surface was put in this past winter.

And on Saturday, Frame witnessed a day he will never forget.

The Lady Vikings claimed first by two points (182 total) while the boys took fourth overall.

“It was a great day for our track and field programs,” FPD head coach

“The win today was a complete team effort for the girls and the guys battled hard as well,” FPD head girls coach Walker Middlebrooks said. “Anytime you win a track meet by two points, it is clear that every contribution mattered. Every point proved to be vital.”

“It was great to be able to honor Coach Frame and celebrate all he has done for the FPD Track program,” Middlebrooks added. “His hard work is evident as our hurdlers continue to excel in their events. He’s had a remarkable career.”

The Lady Vikings and Vikings return to competition on Wednesday, March 16, hosting the Viking Invitational No. 1 at the Dick Frame Track and Field Complex at George S. Johnson Stadium at 4 p.m.
