Hall of Fame

Keith S. Burgess

Hall of Fame induction:  2004

Keith has been extremely important in the promotion of cross country and track & field in Delaware in the 50ís and 60ís, instrumental in starting programs at Harrington, Greenwood, Milton, and Felton and is considered by many as the father of cross country in lower Delaware. He secured an entry for Dwight Hackett of Harrington as an individual in the 1957 state cross country championship. Over the years, he transported hundreds of young people to and from practice and organized teams for the Jr. Olympics. Keith promoted our sports and wrote about them in the Harrington Journal, now known as the Journal, for 47 years. He has been honored with an invitational in his name at Lake Forest High School.
