Royall Invitational: First Home Meet In 20 Years
Thursday, April 12, 2012 at Royall High School Gerard Brunner Athletic Complex in Elroy. Results
The Royall Panther track team had been 'on the road' for 20 years since their last home meet in 1992.
Above L-R: Royall High School principal Jeff Van Lannen, Royall student athletes Hana Weber and Madeline Miller, the Brunner's Barb and Ron, Royall student athletes Katie Sugden and Emma Zmolek, and Royall Schools District Administrator Mark Gruen.
Ron Brunner remembered his days as a Royall High school student when town and school leaders talked of new athletic outdoor facilities. Ron decided to finally do something about that and provided the funds necessary to build a first class track and field facility with bleachers and a new refreshment stand. The facility was dedicated to and named after Ron's brother Gerard who was a track and field athlete at Royall. Royall students and the community will benefit from the facility. Already, 50 of the 80 middle school students have participated in a track program this season.
