OUR Invite

Every year, we are able to host a special invite, the John R. Davis Titan Invitational. For the past 48 years, GBS has been hosting many schools in the area. Since 2001, we have named the invite after John Davis, head track coach and football coach for many years. Over the years, on his track we’ve celebrated some of our best moments. This year was no different. At this year’s Titan Invite, both the Varsity and Frosh/Soph teams finished in second place after New Trier (Frosh/Soph tied with Wheeling for second). At the distance level, our Varsity finished in third after New Trier and Loyola Academy.

Some Highlights

James Kurtzweil (Jr) set his personal record by 21-seconds in the 3200m run! James finished the 3200 in 10:14.84.

Matthew Finkel (So) is the newest member of the Sub-11 club in the 3200m run after finishing the race in 10:58.66.

Charlie Schultz (Sr) set his personal record in the 800m run, finishing in 2:02.22. This is a 1.06 second improvement in his personal record set last year at sectionals.

The next week is a busy week. The CSL Freshman Invitational is Monday at Home. On Tuesday, the JV team will travel to Maine West for their last meet of the year.

John Davis Titan Stadium

Glenbrook South's Outdoor Stadium

Get ready to witness thrilling competitions on our recently-resurfaced 400m outdoor track! John Davis Titan Stadium is the perfect venue, with eight lanes and comfortable bleacher seating for spectators. The stadium is named after longtime boys and girls track and field head coach John Davis, who lost his battle with pancreatic cancer in 2001. His legacy is honored with the annual John Davis Titan Invitational in early May. Home-track advantage has been proven, with Glenbrook South winning two consecutive Sectional Championships in 2021 and 2022. Come and experience the excitement for yourself!
